Beavis and Butthead Documentary. When people don’t “get” Beavis and Butthead I can only explain, “You either went to school with those guys or you didn’t.” It’s fascinating to hear Mike Judge explain the ideas that inspired every character and their voices, plus it reminds you once again how funny they are. (Elise Thompson).
Dolls Kill. This store next door to Canter’s on Fairfax is geared towards the young counter culture. It’s laid out like a rock venue and kinda rave sparkly with a Disco atmosphere. They not only stock bad 70s clothes, but what would have been the future of bad 70s, had it been allowed to continue developing. Everything from gawd-awful Brady Bunch gear to super-human sequined platform space boots. Shop Dolls Kill. (Tequila Mockingbird).
Car Wash Burritos The real name of the taco truck on the corner of Sunset and Alvarado is El Flamin, but everyone calls it Carwash Burritos. Their pastor might be the best thing, but I like the suadero (brisket). A great stop after a night of seeing bands at The Echo and Echoplex. El Flamin.(Bob Lee).
Kinkaid’s My family always celebrated special occasions at restaurants on The Redondo Pier. Sadly, Cattlemen’s and Breaker’s Seafood were lost to flames and the sea in 1988, and Tony’s food has gone downhill, although their crows nest bar is still slingin’ Fire Chiefs. So it was nice to discover Kinkaid’s last week, an upscale white tablecloth joint with views of the water. Meals are pricy, but their steaks and seafood are first-rate, and plates are a bit more au courant than you might expect. It is a chain, but they promise that each location is “uniquely local.” Kinkaids.
