This come see me trope gets short shrift in an era of disposal, ephemeral selfies on ubiquitous digital platforms. What might be considered a more measured, more artistic variation of the theme becomes exponentially more monumental the moment you appreciate their old school function as a visual diary.
In Los Angeles, fall is best of all. It's because cocktails concocted from the flavorful ingredients of the season are now appearing at many of the finer establishments in town.

When was the last time Kobe Bryant was still Kobe Bryant? It's a difficult and, for some, painful question to ask. As much as he tries, and dear god is he trying, Kobe isn't Kobe this year. Not even close.
