With coronavirus-prompted distance learning, teens cope with social isolation, new stressors

A cluster of friends high-fived and chatted at the entrance to Reseda Charter High on Wednesday morning, standing rather close to one another at a time when public health officials caution against breaching 6 feet with anyone outside your household. They stood in a line that snaked around the block to pick up school-issued laptops for remote instruction. It’s been nearly two weeks since schools in Southern California and across the nation shuttered, hoping to hamper spread of the coronavirus pan...

Watch Warriors' Klay Thompson drain long shot on outdoor Clippers hoop

The Warriors star, who has missed the entirety of the regular season while he rehabs his torn ACL, posted a video on his Instagram story Tuesday of him nailing a shot from just inside half-court ... on an outdoor court that might or might not have been NBA-regulation length. Thompson didn't geo-tag the video, but the Los Angeles Clippers logo on the hoop would seem to give away that he is in Southern California. Of course, had this happened a year ago, the then-pending free agent surely wou...

The Original Hells Angels: Amazing Photographs Capture Daily Life Of A Notorious Biker Gang In California In The 1960s

LIFE photographer Bill Ray spent several weeks in Southern California, photographing and traveling with the San Bernardino chapter of a gang that would soon become notorious for its hedonistic, lawless swagger.

While the second weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Country Music Festival happen a week apart from one another on the Empire Polo Club grounds in Indio, the settings and experiences are very different. Here are some of the notable ways the two festivals differ (and some ways they’re the same). The layout...

Coachella 2019: How the festival survived and thrived to reach its 20th year

As the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival marks its 20th anniversary this weekend, it’s easy to forget what a rare and unexpected surprise the very first fest was in 1999. First of all, most of you weren’t there – only 20,000 or so fans “filled” the Empire Polo Field to hear artists such as the Chemical Brothers and Beck, Rage Against the Machine and Tool. Second, those few who were there had never seen anything like it. Crisp green grass instead of asphalt or dirt. Reasonable prices at the ...

A ‘Clean’ Chinese Food Restaurant in New York Is the Latest Flashpoint in a Debate Over Cultural Appropriation

For the third time in the last six months, an Asian restaurant created by white owners with the word “Lucky” in its name has drawn criticism for cultural appropriation or insensitivity. Gordon Ramsay’s Lucky Cat came under fire for describing itself as “authentic Asian” food. Andrew Zimmern apologized after describing other Midwest Chinese restaurants as “horses - - t restaurants” while promoting his own chain, Lucky Cricket. And now joining them is Lucky Lee’s in New Yo...

Casinos deal in fancy cocktails: Mixologists offer upscale drinks for the age of Instagram

Just as ubiquitous as slot machines inside Southern California casinos are the bars with fancy displays of liquor bottles, sleek furnishings and perhaps most importantly, an array of cocktails. But behind a perfectly poured and garnished Instagram-ready cocktail is a process. Mixology is the practice of crafting drinks with a variety of ingredients the same way a chef crafts a dish. Many resorts, including Pechanga Resort & Casino, Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa, Harrah’s Resort Southern Californi...

Pearl District is a New American culinary gem in Sherman Oaks

At one time, the large space at 14015 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks was home to a casual eatery called Café Cordiale. Then, it was taken over by the folks from the nearby Boneyard Bistro, and turned into a more elegant spot called SOCA. Which after a year and a half was replaced by a Mexican concept called Boneyard Cantina. Which you may have missed if you blinked; it didn’t last very long at all. Now, the space is a branch of the very popular Westlake Village New American called Pearl District....

Aggressive Instagramming is ruining Southern California's super bloom

People trampled California's poppies for the 'gram, and ruined it for the rest of us. Fields of fiery "super bloom" poppies are lighting up the hills of Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, a city about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Thanks to uncommonly heavy rains this winter, much of Southern California is seeing a massive burst of wildflower blooms across the state. The poppies in Walker Canyon are so lush, they can be seen from space. > Superbloom visible from space - Califor...

16-year-old Patrick Turner committed suicide one year ago. What’s changed since then?

Some say suicide is best discussed behind closed doors. But they are wrong. One year ago in Southern California, four teenagers within just three weeks, took their lives. The first and youngest was Emma Pangelinan, a softball phenom, who killed herself in a park at age 13. The second was Patrick Turner, who died in darkness on an empty baseball field. But before ending his life, the high school sophomore wrote four remarkable letters calling for less pressure on teens and more inclusivity. Like ...

Most Instagrammed places in the US

The more jaded travelers among us might say nobody travels anymore; they just go places to collect content for their Instagrams. Which, for a large segment of the population, is probably true. Such is travel in 2019, where the popularity of both people and places is largely gauged on the ‘gram. While we’re not going to pass judgment on any national park, sandy beach, or mouse-eared theme park based on the number of hashtags it got in 2018, Play Picks is happy to do so.
