My dad when I finally got off the family cell phone plan
Vegas for the 30th tomorrow.
Without Farley Elliott there would be no Comrades and no Manifesto Show! Jen and I are sad to see our co-host, brilliant teammate and best friend go however we don’t get sappy with Farley, we get even…which in this case is booking an entire show with some of his favorite teams, performers and putting him up with whoever wins the lottery slot. This is going to be a wonderful night celebrating one of our absolute favorite people. There is no Comrade like Farlizzle!

Saturday night shit.
If you follow @RidingshotgunLA on Twitter, you may have noticed Roy Choi being a little more ornery than usual recently. For a few days, the Kogi king was prodding back at a New York Times piece that lauds the Big Apple’s taco scene. The opening line — “New York has great tacos, tacos that can go mano a mano with the best of Los Angeles” — was more than enough to get Choi fired up. Now it’s our turn.
Those tried-and-true bicoastal food topics (Pizza in L.A.? Pshaw!) never cease to draw a crowd of angry commenters looking to defend their turf. But what if we took the conversation up a notch, and pulled in every corner of the Union? What foods does Los Angeles do better than the entire rest of the United States? Tacos, obviously — better luck next time, Borough dwellers — but also certain street foods, American classics and lots of delicious pitstops in between.
Here are ten culinary delights that Los Angeles does better than anywhere else in America, with a few local examples to help drive the point home.
It’s a safe bet that you didn’t grow up with your mom making galbi jjim at home. What a bummer. The Korean short rib soul food dish is as hearty and life affirming as they come. Eating a long-braised bowl of the stuff is like working your way through a steamy bowl of fresh hugs, one chopstick bite at a time.
