I bought three of these guides. Two are earmarked for gifts - the other I'm keeping for myself. Just a great idea, whether for a gift for yourself. Well laid out book, showing what's on, in and around L.A. - and it's all free. Why hasn't someone thought of this before?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
