Taco Truck Confessions

Everyone loves tacos. That’s just a fact of life. So it makes sense that the best place to find the largest cross-section of interesting people would be a taco spot at night. It’s with this in mind that L.A. Taco presents a unique look at Los Angeles through interviews with people waiting to get their delicious food.

Love in an Elevator on the Way to Your Bachelor Pad

la-bachelor-pad

Imagine driving a car—your car—to the end of a cul de sac in the Hollywood Hills where you park it inside of a garage carved into a hill. Upon exiting the vehicle, you and your date walk through a gated tunnel to a private elevator where you’re whisked up 6 stories to the top of a Tuscan tower. After stuffing everything back into place, you and your date arrive at your front door high above Hollywood BLVD. You remark “this is where David Copperfield used to live” and now my friend, this is where you live, and you’re the one with the magical powers. Featuring hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, and excellent views from the terrace, this one bedroom apartment is a sun-filled world away from that old studio you used to rent in the city that never sleeps. So sleep in, and look forward to many more elevator rides to your new heaven.

“One of my favorite places to venture out and grab some nourishment during downtime is The Black Cat on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, or Silver Lake to be exact. It’s in the neighborhood of the studio and has a chill tailored atmosphere for lunch or a night out. Los Angeles has a lot of unique pockets and Silver Lake richly nurtures its creative residents. This establishment is located in Sunset Junction across the street from Intelligencia coffee and Café Stella, which are both excellent refueling stops as well.
