Hi Mintees,

I am coming to the USA for a holiday this March from Sydney Australia, this is my first time so im looking to add any great experiences that i can - cool bars, best street art, best food tips, art galleries & cool events

We will be in LA for March 7th - 11th and NY & Boston from 12th - 26th

If anyone can throw some suggestions down it would be appreciated, happy to return the favour for anyone coming down under :-)

    Hell yeah dude, I'll be in NY on the 13th I believe, are you going to be in the city?

    If you want a TRUE NY shitty American food experience, the Tik Tok diner at 2 AM is the place to be.

    Check out Crif Dog in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for some killer hotdogs and theres a "hidden
    " bar through the phone booth in there

    Go to Wacko's - 4633 Hollywood Blvd Hollywood, CA 90027

    They have awesome art and art books.
    Go to Figaro for breakfast - 1802 N Vermont Ave

    Go to Johnny Cupcakes store and stores around it.

    Bars: the standard hotel rooftop bar for a cool view, seven grand for a ridiculous whiskey selection and the best old fashioned around, the w hotel has jazz night on Sundays at 10 that makes you feel pretty classy. La Descarga is a sorta speakeasy vibe, a ton of good rum and a cigar room.

    I got a second to write a couple more entries:

    For NYC on Wednesdays is when all the galleries have openings in Chelsea (roughly 10th-11th avenue and 23rd-28th street).
    Also SoHo area has a lot of street art and so does Williamsburg/Bushwick has a lot of great street art and is a cool place to check out, they both have some really great bars as well. Theres a pizza place on the border of the two called Robertas that has some excellent pizza but it does get extremely busy although there is a few bars in their complex to help pass the time.
    Let me know if you have any specific questions or want to know some more stuff in a certain area and enjoy!

    In LA go to Roscoes Chicken and Waffles off of Sunset. Don't wait in line for Pinks hot dogs, they're not that great.

    seconded on both. pinks is way over hyped. it's a decent hot dog, but not worth waiting in line for by any means.
