Los Feliz is the place I'd live if I wasn't such a beach lover. It's the Malasaña/Grünerløkka of LA, with a really relaxed vibe, and small sidewalk shops and restaurants full of cool people dressing like rockstars. Just look at their movietheatre... Gotta love it.
We had dinner in this little Italian place, and when we couldn't finish our bottle of wine they wrapped it up in a brown paper bag for us to take home. Sweet! Also, a girl passed by screaming "Excuse me, I loooove your outfit". Small things that make me happy;)
