Christmas in the City

In which we take in a slice of L.A. life

There's one thing that says "L.A." like nothing else. No, it's not "fake tits" or "broken dreams." It's the outdoor food stands that dot the city. If you really want to get to know L.A. and its variegated peoples, it helps to spend a little time now and then at the stands. Here, you'll find people from every walk, from t he bike messenger grabbing a quick lunch to the big-shot film auteur holding forth on his favorite shots in "Pulp Fiction" over a chili dog.

Everyone has a favorite. This is mine, on Vine between Hollywood and Sunset. Taken on the windy, lonely Christmas Eve of 2007.
