If coming to the greater Los Angeles area to attend a Wheel of Fortune taping, you'll get to enjoy Culver City, which has hosted the long running TV game show with Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Tickets are FREE as always. Tapings are on the Sony Studios lot and usually last a few hours including wait time for security and to be seated . Leave cameras...more
....and how cute Alex Trebek is in person. Ah, I have always had a thing for that fine ol' witty, sophisticated Canadian game show host. Jeporady is a classic TV hit I particularly cherish being a trivia buff. I doubt my skills enough to not venture being on the show but I would love to be in the audience to watch others as contestants. For tickets...more
Culver City can rightfully boast of big and small screen heritage. It is home to Sony Pictures Studio where live movies and shows still are being filmed. Here is a Hollywood West. On the website below, see times for Pacific Theares ( at 9500 Culver Blvd, 310-855-7519) in Culver City as well as other nearby theaters for showtimes! I tell you, there...more
More and more American towns are reshaping their "downtown" or centralized area. It is no different in Culver City. Cobblestone streets and freshly painted buildings are common of downtown features and CC has these, but there is also an art deco look that makes this downtown special. More pics to come!more

This casual wine bar absolutely rocks! Fun, laid back place perfect for happy hour or a chill, mellow dinner. Awesome wine list, beer list, and great appetizers. Hip music and a friendly waitstaff complement the experience. ~The dates are amazing!~Grilled cheese with truffle butter! yum!more
I saw this place open up in my neighborhood a while back and decided to check it out. I'm generally not a big fan of chili, but one taste and I was hooked (I've been back three times in the last month). There are seven different types of chili available - steak, port, turkey, chicken, and vegetarian to name a few. Each has its own character and is...more
Tender Greens is a cute spot located in the bustling restaurant/ bar scene on Culver Blvd by Main Street in Culver City. The concept is cool: you order at a counter and wait while gourmet plates of food are prepared and assembled while you wait in line. Then, you take it to your seat either in the main restaurant or the outdoor patio.The prices are...more
Tito's Tacos is a very popular taqueria of the greater L.A area- so much so that daily, people wait several minutes just to make an order. I'll never understand completely the enormous hype about this place though it's worth a visit if you want simple and good Mex. It is highly recommended that you come here early (it opens at 9am) or come during...more
Cinco De Mayo is not just a one-day affair, rather, can be celebrated everyday of the year, 24/7. This Culver City taco joint is a local favorite , easily found at a corner of Washington Pl (just yards away from the busy Washington Blvd), and Sepulveda Blvd. Despite the high visibility, it does get passed up by the insanely popular Tito's Tacos ,...more
Its hard to imagine why the food is soooo good here. I guess its because theres not alot of choices and the food is very very simple. So how can you mess that up? On any given day or night, anyday of the week, theres ALWAYS a line to order at this place. If you are alittle afraid of Mexican food Titos Tacos is a great place to start. The tacos are...more
Tito's Tacos is one of the best known restaurants in the West Los Angeles area. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. Most of the time during open hours, there is a crowd in front waiting to order. There is a place inside to order during inclement weather. I enjoy the meat burrito with rice and cheese. The meat is tender and overall...more
I've been to Petrelli's numerous times and everytime we dine there, we always get blood rushing to our faces hehe Yep, it's all from the juicy red meat. Sorry no vegan here. It's very dark in the steakhouse but nice comfy and roomy. There's the pub area and there's the dining area, the pub area has the pub of course the tv on and much more relaxed...more
Well.. they're not really Greek, the owner is Egyptian. This little shop is located at the corner of Sepulveda and Sawtelle. Now most of you who live around here will probably say Sepulveda and Sawtelle are parallel with other and don't cross, yes they do! They're located nearby the shopping place where Toys R Us, Pier 1 Import etc. It's a small...more
What a fantastic concert. You always here the phrase "you just can't improve upon perfection," however Sony Holland just gets better and better each time I hear her sing. She totally blew me away the other night at Culver's jazz club. She didn't just sing, she performed. Her band, The Theo Saunders Quartet who just happens to consist of some of the...more
Here is a very nice, subdued venue with great vibes. The Jazz Bakery is a 7 night jazz club, featuring renouned jazz cats. Check out the website for updated scheldule. It is noted as the only non-profit LA area jazz venue that plays each day. So, know that you will get quality and tremednously help out the arts community thrive in Culver City.Call...more
The Expo Line is the newest addition to rail travel in greater Los Angeles. In 30 minutes' time, one can go is from downtown L.A to Culver City, at the CC stop*. The same trip by car in some freeway traffic is not much shorter or longer given the typical freeway L.A. traffic. Expo Line ridership is steadily building, not generally very crowded like...more
Bussing it from LAX to Culver City is convenient. From the lower level arrivals at the airport:-Catch a free LAX "G" shuttle bus (stand under the clearly marked shuttle area) and head to the LAX City Bus Center or to the Green Line Aviation Station, both about a mile or less away. Exit whichever destination option and wait for the Culver City 6...more

I really like this store because it always has great shoes at affordable prices. I bought 2 pairs of boots, that I get compliments on all the time, for $93...not bad!
It is situated at the bottom level of the Fox Hills Mall (Westfield) in Culver City. It was just renovated and Target, Best Buy and H&M were just added. Certainly another reason to shop in this mall.
Westfield Shopping malls are scattered throughout the greater L.A. area. They often are, in typical corporate fashion, undistinguishable. Each one usually has 3-4 major dept stores, carved with some specialty clothing, shoe and gift shops and of course, the colorful fattening food court...yada ...yada... yada...
Making several trips here throughout the years, I have enjoyed the particular cultural color here at the Culver City Westfeld (well, no one says " Culver City Westfeld", rather call it as it was known classically, Fox Hills Mall). Just a few miles from LAX, many travelers may encounter this mall first in the LA area.
Despite Wesfeld's corporate approach lessening the "urban chic" factor somewhat over the years with the closing of small shops and eateries, FHM is a spot to go for those who love ethnically-targeted merchandise, particularly to black and latino consumers. FHM has been referred especially as the "black mall", catering to cultural tastes of several Black Americans residing in Culver City and in surrounding south L.A. areas and there is a significant black presence in mall store employment. At major mall anchor Macy's, some clothing styles and accessories like dress hats are designed and marketed particularly targeted to black buyers. Carol's Daughter, a leading African-American skin care, beauty line business is exclusively located at FHM.
Of course, the mall has something for everyone, providing universal appeal and has been transformed inside-out. It was, like so many shopping malls, exclusively all- indoors. However, new stores attached to the old mall have benn added over the years, including Target.
Address: 6000 Sepulveda Boulevard
FHM is off the 405 & 90 fwys, near the intersection of Sepulveda and Slauson.
From LAX, take the convenient Culver City 6 bus to arrive here starting from the Green Line-Aviation stop)
Pay attention as always when walking on and crossing the streets , but pay close care when arriving at one particular point downtown Culver City, where Main St and Washington Blvd meet with Culver Blvd- pictured here. I was crossing here on Culver with great caution, as motorists driving from the south on Washington were merging on Main St were a bit anxious in yielding.
for a high-end rug or plush velvet chaise!Helms Bakery District is a beautifully landscaped center that caters particularly to locals, considering it is mainly a home furnishings center but added eateries, nearby galleries and outdoor charm will please outsiders coming to this part of Culver City. If you appreciate the finer things, you'll be...more
Though on the major Jefferson Blvd which runs through the city, the Star Eco Station is a little hidden treasure. The wildlife rescue haven is worth checking out, especially for bird enthusiasts or for those who travel with the kids. I happen to come here for the annual African-American Arts Festival held just outside the building. There are very...more
Along both Washington Blvd and La Cienega Blvd in Culver is a growing art central of greater Los Angeles. Galleries galore featuring various styles in contemporary art. More commentary and pictures of this as I make a special arts tour of Culver City.http://www.ccgalleryguide.com/more
