In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80’s. Relive this era through the guitar smashing hit musical Rock Of Ages; an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Night Ranger, STYX, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benetar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and many more.  The new musical comedy Rock Of Ages features a mix of 28 rockin’ 80’s tunes including Don’t Stop Believin’, We Built This City, The Final Countdown, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Here I Go Again, Can’t Fight This Feeling, and I Want To Know What Love Is. Now you can sing along with the cast and audience in a theater setting; as opposed to singing by yourself in the shower or car. The saying that “comedy is tragedy plus time” may hold no truer than in the case of the hair-band days of the late 1980s. Though it’s hard to imagine now, these bands dominated the stage and charts with their unironic combination of mascara and machismo. Rock Of Ages takes place at the famous Pantages Theatre in the heart of Hollywood, on Hollywood Boulevard, right down the block from Vine Street. It’s a fitting location: The Pantages has become one of the greatest landmarks of Hollywood, signifying both the glorious past and adventuresome future of the world’s entertainment capital. Watch a video on Rock Of Ages here.

Don’t miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on! What are some of your favorite 80’s songs?

Hot Dog On A Train

February 29, 2012 — 1 Comment

Who wouldn’t want to eat a hot dog or burger in a train car on the Sunset strip in LA? With all the hype about their food, I couldn’t help but stop in for a quick bite and the burger-in-train-car experience.

Carney’s is a family owned casual fast food restaurant that serves burgers and hot dogs in a 1920’s Amtrak passenger car. They pride themselves on serving some of the best hamburgers and hot dogs  in LA. They boast that they use the freshest ingredients on the market and have never skimped on quality. And what a great location!

Carney’s was founded in 1975 by John Wolfe, Sr. and his wife Pat Wolfe. Together they worked countless hours building the restaurant into a Sunset Strip destination. In a time when hamburger establishments were popping up all over the place, John chose to build a restaurant out of an old Pacific Railroad passenger train.

Being a former radio executive, he understood the importance of lasting impressions and being different. Not only was John good at publicity but he could also cook amazing burgers and hot dogs. John knew that by building a portable restaurant that if anything were to happened to their Sunset Strip lease, they could simply pick up and move their business elsewhere.

Needless to say, the business is still around today and it has become quite the LA Landmark. In 1981 Carney’s decided to add another location on Ventura Blvd in Studio City.

Their menu is extensive, but people mainly come here for their burgers, dogs, and chili. Their hot dogs have won awards, and there’s a sign in the restaurant that says they won the title for “best hot dogs in LA 2007”. My friend and I ordered what I call the trifecta; cheeseburger, hot dog, and chili cheese fries. The familiar concert of fat, salt, and starch came together wonderfully and the lemonade was refreshing. Of all three, the burger was the most tasty. They also offer tacos and wraps. Check out their menu here.

Los Angeles is a culture of cars and landmarks, Carney’s is no exception to both. So, take a trip down to the Sunset strip and enjoy a classic burger or hot dog on a classic train.
