Located two blocks from Venice Beach’s iconic boardwalk, Venice Beach Station assembles a fleet of rental bicycles and skateboards with which to cruise along the shore in style. Once equipped with a mount and protective equipment, customers can explore the 2.5-mile pedestrian-only promenade, where scores of artists and performers entice riders to stop and take in the vibrant culture mixed with solemn remembrance of fellow mimes crushed by invisible pianos.
From Atlanta to LA, Park 'N Fly keeps cars safe inside their secured quarters just a quick shuttle ride away from the nearest airport. To make taking a trip more convenient for travelers, they offer 24-hour shuttles that arrive every five minutes, valet parking, and luggage assistance, beyond giving their vehicles a safe place to stay. Their lots are gated, well lit, and monitored.
All Star Parking’s safe and secure lot resides a mere half-block up Century Boulevard from Los Angeles International Airport, allowing commuters to drop off their cars and get to their gates in a timely fashion. Drivers simply steer their vehicles into the lot at any time—it’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, like the best wide receivers. Then, they wait for the courtesy shuttle to pick them up directly at their parking space and whisk them to the airport curb. Once owners and cars have said their teary goodbyes, the courteous and friendly staff takes over car-sitting duties, keeping a close watch on the lot to ward off intruders and prevent mishaps.
Airport Center tucks cars safely into more than 4,000 parking spots spanning three secured structures, allowing their drivers to board flights at Los Angeles International Airport worry-free. Customers can self-park jalopies into lots patrolled by 24-hour security. A lemon-yellow and burgundy shuttle bus traverses the one block between the garage and the airport about every 10 minutes, helping customers stay on time for flights or rendezvouses with their secret second car.
Park Air Express’s staff eases transitions from automobile to airplane with fast and courteous shuttle services. Guests drop off their vehicles for a short or long stay at Park Air's indoor covered parking facility before being whisked off to their LAX terminal in one of the company's distinctive green and yellow shuttles. The shuttles await passengers upon their arrival, ready to transport them back and forth 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For an additional fee, the staff will wash and detail trusty gas-powered steeds, so they can greet their owner’s return free of grime or evidence of splashing through mud puddles while they were gone.
Every 5–10 minutes, complimentary shuttles embark on the brief jaunt from Fox Auto Parks to Los Angeles International Airport and vice versa. Before jet-setting or anxiously herding geese off the runway at LAX, located just 1.5 miles away, passengers steer their own autos into spots or pass off the duty to valet attendants free of charge. Guests depart serenely, knowing security employees, video surveillance, and a secured gate will keep a watchful eye on vehicles.
Since the parking lots stay open 24/7, customers arriving back at LAX can call for a shuttle to their car at any hour, waiting only 10 minutes, roughly the amount of time it takes to build the bus. Fox Auto Parks ensures carefree homecomings by offering free battery jump-starts, tire fills, and AAA assistance for keys locked in cars.
Hamburger Hamlet has its roots in the original Hamburger Hamlet, an upscale burger joint opened in 1950 by actor Harry Lewis and his wife, Marilyn. Much like the studio system and rampant anti-Communist paranoia of that time, however, that Hamburger Hamlet is no more. In its place is a chain of restaurants that have retained the original's commitment to quality food, A-list service, and morose Act III soliloquies. The new Hamburger Hamlet's menu, overseen by executive chef Tony Zidar, updates much of the original Ham Ham fare while expanding upon the available eats. Still on the roster are burgers with beef, turkey, or veggie patties, such as the all-American classic cheeseburger ($9.95–$10.95) or the avocado-topped Marilyn Burger ($10.50–$10.95), all served with regular, mesquite, or garlic fries. On the new menu, however, are entrees such as a pan-roasted chicken served with spinach and garlic-parmesan fries ($16.95–$17.95), a barbecue meatloaf sandwich with garlic mashed potatoes on its arm ($10.95–$11.95), and a California market salad loaded with nuts, vegetables, chicken, cranberries, and goat cheese ($13.50–$13.95). Chocolateers and fudgeistadors will hit pay dirt with Hamburger Hamlet's ultimate hot-fudge cake ($8.95–$9.95), just one of the several rich desserts offered.
