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.

Chimera Exotics' fleet of luxury cars beckons drivers to move between destinations with style and speed. In a 24-hour joyride, the Lamborghini Gallardo will coast through streets and highways with the grace of a dolphin ridden by a ballerina. The fully equipped car's e-gear transmission allows drivers to leisurely cruise with automatic transmission or kick it into gear with manual transmission at their discretion. Over the course of the day rental, motorists have a window of 70 miles to explore the city or voguishly check the mailbox several times a day; additional miles clock in at $3 each.
Monalisa Limousine's prompt, professional chauffeurs whisk passengers to and from LAX in luxury Town Cars. Airport-bound travelers can settle back and admire the roadster's plush interior, which is adorned with soft leather trim and satin nickel accents, as their affable driver boldly navigates traffic and never forgets to use the blinker. Customers purchasing the one-way option can choose to reserve a ride to or from LAX, whereas round-trip recipients will be greeted by a courteous driver at their pickup location and will find a chauffeur waiting to return them home after they're done exploring the airport.
From sedans with comfy leather interiors to spacious stretch limos with wraparound seats and full bars, each vehicle in On Time Limo's fleet transports passengers to and fro in style. Since 1999, the company's drivers have promptly picked up and dropped off clients all around California, from Beverly Hills and Santa Monica to the hidden city beneath the Hollywood sign. When the chauffeurs aren't whisking high-profile celebs and CEOs around town, they escort travelers to LAX in Lincoln Town Cars, lead private tours in stretch Hummers, and make sure guests get to weddings, proms, and bar mitzvahs with the proper pomp and circumstance.
