Update: Caroline has informed me she does not wish for me to publish her list in its entirety. Legally, I can expert but not publish the whole list.

So I will only provide excepts.

Thanks Caroline.

Fellow Los Angeles blogger Caroline on Crack wrote a popular post titled 100 things to try in L.A. before you die. I won't lie, I was quite pleased with myself to discover just how many things on that list I have already experienced.

Then again, maybe it's not because we're in the know so much as we are avid followers of Thrillist and L.A. Weekly's Annual "Best of" issue, where a huge percentage of these random and obscure references obviously come from.

In the end, it doesn't matter whether or not these are the true gems of Los Angeles. What matters is that we had the chutzpah to go out and try them. So if anyone out there has a suggestion of a must-do in Los Angeles, I'm ready for it.
