Some people have trouble with washing dishes; others do not. Take a careful look at these two groups of people. Their work patterns show some subtle differences.

Navigating downtown is - there's no getting around it - tough. Even though I work there, I can never remember which one-way streets go which way. You can turn a corner and suddenly find yourself in the middle of Downtown Art Walk, with sidewalks teeming with thousands of pedestrians, or just as easily find yourself on a deserted avenue, shops closed up tight. The scene switches moods - active, lonely, thriving, haunted - from block to block and street to street. One very alive stretch is Main Street in the Old Bank District.

Wanted: a restaurant perfect for dinner for two. It could be a first date, blind even. Or a night out without the kids. Or an evening spent taking a friendship or love affair to another level over a marquee chef's tasting menu. We've all been in that tight spot, casting about for the right restaurant to suit the anticipated evening. Acabar Acabar (the former Dar Maghreb) could be the most romantic restaurant in L.A., a sleek fantasy of Morocco complete with intricately carved bar and lounge.

It doesn't matter how sunny it might be right now, it takes a month or so of that much heat to get most tomatoes to that perfect, juice-dripping ripeness we all crave. But until then, look for little grape or cherry tomatoes. They're smaller, so they ripen earlier and they are bred to be high in sugar. Late-summer flavor without a long wait. How to choose: Tomatoes should be vibrantly colored with taut, shiny skin. There should be no soft or wrinkly spots. How to store: Never refrigerate tomatoes -- it kills the flavor.
