The Gove is a cool place in general, and the theater is no exception. Nice and automated, the ushers wear old-fashioned uniforms, but you can order your Twizzlers by computer.
Do not patronize on the weekends for movies that are opening. The dregs of society seem to come out and refuse to allow you to enjoy the film, which you paid $40 for you and your date to see, including a large popcorn and Dasani water.
This is a great store -- it has Gap, Gap Body, Gap Kids and Gap Maternity all rolled into one giant store. Very handy. Don't go on the weekends, though. Too many people and all-around bedlam.
Gap Kids and Baby Gap are two separate stores in this mall, which is lame when you have a child that straddles the clothing size divide. Selection only ok.
This Gap seems to be a perfunctory store front, almost like a mere advertisement for a Gap. The selection is dire and the color scheme appears to be perpetually chocolate brown. Would recommend you find a better stocked store for those ever-essential khakis.
The Fashion Square, where this Gap is located, is kind of snobby and pretentious in a palatable L.A. way, leading one to think the Gap would have a better selection. Unfortunately, that would be an incorrect assumption. If you are desperate for a pair of boot cuts, you're good. If you need 'em in a long size, go to the Promenade.
This Toys R Us creeps me out a little. It is like I stepped through a wormhole and ended up at the toy store of my youth. The building and fixtures look exactly as htey were 20+ years ago. But, hey, the toys inside are current, and I guess that's what counts.
There are not that many toy superstores in L.A., truth be told. I like this one best. It has a great selection and the building is not circa 1979. Worth traveling to.
Johnny Rockets and punk/alternative Melrose do not generally jibe, but hey, if you are out shopping for some vinyl pants, you may just get an inkling for some chili fries, in which case you are in luck.
This isn't the best Johnny Rockets I've ever been to, but it's good if you want to avoid the food court at the Media Center and get a milkshake. They don't sing or dance like the cool Johnny Rockets do, though.
