Ever wonder who is actually from L.A.? Here at The Daily Truffle, we do not.
We all grew up here and can explain all the inside minutia from Jewish vs. Wasp country clubs to old timers vs. nouveau to Brentwood vs. Harvard-Westlake to Aspen vs. the Kahala for Christmas... Picture L.A. as you would any small town -- of course the local butcher is a studio head and the kids hanging out at the gas station have Range Rovers or parents on TV... but for us that's home. If I could pull up the lattice of L.A. people and L.A. families anywhere at any time, someone new to town (Sometimes we call them FOBs -- sorry!!) it might look something like the final scenes in Fight Club when everyone's in on the deal. Read on to see our who's who of kids from L.A.
