ISO Pork Belly for the smoker- Silver Lake/ Echo Park area?

(Though the weekend has passed) Find the nearest Korean or Japanese grocery store for the pork belly; if they've already sliced it ask at the counter.

Take the racks out and stack bottles for extra capacity or odd sizes.

Irish Whiskey Question

New bottles retail in the 120-150 dollar range; hopefully you don't have leakage and can enjoy and recork it.

Court duty, S.M., where to eat?

Cora's on Ocean is not too far, nor are the hotels listed in the above post; you can also walk pretty easily across the bridge to the Mall/Promenade

Gas Grill Propane Tank Refills - LA Area

OK. So we're getting into the big time grilling season. And it would be great to know where people get their propane gas tanks REFILLED (i.e., not exchanged) in the LA area. Please let's head posts with the part of the city for ease of use.

Race Day breakfast w/ views in Santa Monica

Maybe just head to Barney's Beanery on the Promenade, stomach the subpar food, get hammered, and watch the race

If all your meals for a month had to be at one restaurant in the LA Area, which one would you select?

The Restaurant at the Hotel Bel Air. Preferably with a suite included.

what's the difference between Pavillions and Vons?

Believe it or not, there are folks who don't ask the questions being raised in this discussion and think neighboring stores are actually different in price, selection, quality...

one day for london pubs

For a different choice,I think Gordon's Wine Bar is over there; the Lamb and Flag would be another "historic" choice a few minutes walk away

Pregnant and Craving Carbonara

Yes. We ate this with my brother (a doctor) and his pregnant wife. Used raw eggs, and the pasta is SO hot they cook - just don't drain, rinse or let pasta sit - hot pasta, egg sauce, and maybe a toss in a sauce pan with the pancetta to finish - the heat will be fine, and if worried, take a quick read with a thermometer. Or, if really worried, add a touch of cream to your plate, toss, and nuke it for 30 secs. It'll be fine.

The Great Doughnut Round-up

"In the morning" being operative phrase - go late (i.e., at or after lunch) and the selection wanes considerably... GO EARLY AND CHOW DOWN :-) Their cinnamon sugar cake are some of the best I've had on the west coast.

Best Bartenders in LA

High end hotel bars like Polo Lounge and Bel Air have amazing bartenders - they lean toward the classics, but many classic cocktails are "new" to most people - have them surprise you.
