9/19/17 Taco (or whatever you want really if you look here) Tuesday

I live in L.A. I eat food. I'm literate. Check, check, checkmate. 

To call this article a handy resource understates it. It's a vital resource. It's an unbelievable resource. It's possibly the ultimate resource in all of human history (OK, now maybe I'm overstating it, but it's very very useful).

I would already suggest (in fact I have) using Eater.com to everyone (if you care about where to eat and what to eat and such, that is).


I do happen to care about those things so I find content like this exceptionally helpful. Of course one can, and should, explore beyond what is mentioned, but often it is necessary and useful to default to some default. And, if you're like me, which I am, this article provides some excellent defaults. So it may benefit you, i.e. me, to internalize this information, or at least some of it. Especially if you also live in L.A., check out this article. If you don't also live in L.A., and never come, but you're still interested in the L.A. food scene, here is the article as well. Or, if you're me..., well I already know about the article, but,... in a meta, multi-layered way, here is the article again me. 

Taco Tuesday 5/17/16

Speaking of things that help immerse into an environment, I use EaterLA constantly. It’s a little difficult to see me here I’m so immersed in LA. There’s an Eater particular to LA, but there are also numerous Eaters specific to many individual areas as well as an umbrella, national publication

I find the maps the most useful feature Eater provides. Two specifically, the Heat Map and Eater 38. Heat = Popular at the time (according to them), and 38 = a list of the best restaurants at the time (according to them). The maps show where each location exists within the city as a whole. Great for planning a trip around your usual town or your current town.

Sometimes Eater also publishes other relevant maps on a myriad of topics like, but not limited to, pizza slicescoffeequick serviceburgers… They’re incredibly useful and using them, like yesterday’s Eclectic 24, makes you seem cool. Just another way for you to squeeze into the cultural zeitgeist (At least you'll be able to squeeze into something after using Eater). So once you get hungry from all the head bobbing and toe-tapping you’ll know where to find the best food wherever you are (provided it’s a major metropolitan location that hosts a specific Eater website).
