About a year ago, @dpbuck
did a SoCal TR, and since then I've wanted to give it a go meself. Finally going to do it, leaving March 5 for a week. I need to be in San Diego for a couple of days, but I've scheduled 3 weekend nights in LA. Whole trip will be 7 nights. Gonna do it like dpbuck did, and prob spend a session at each of the biggies: Commerce, Bike, HG, and Hustler. I'll also play in Ocean's 11 while in SD.
I'll have a car, and I'd like to catch some sun while I'm in SoCal, since the sun is mostly a rumor during the winter in Vancouver. Even if it's not hot hot hot, it'll be better than what we've got up here, so at least one beach session is called for.
So I'm not wedded to staying near anywhere particular, just looking for suggestions. My style would prob be described as hippie. Doing the airbnb thing, paying for a night at one of the card rooms sounds fun in theory but not at $200+. Flying in and out of SD so I don't care about LAX.
I'm aiming for a write-up but haven't decided if it'll be a day by day TR or one big one once I'm back.
