13 things to do

All Places United States California

Sherman Oaks Galleria

A good place to experience the natural habitat of the Valley Girl. While it is primarily a hangout and a melting pot for all the valley's youth, the Galleria also houses a popular multiplex (recently transformed into an ArcLight featuring over 21 theatres where drinks are allowed), a furniture store, a few clothing stores, and several restaurants. A perfect spot to grab dinner and a movie if you're in the area.


A store in the California chain specializing in novelty items, cards, and all sorts of other interesting junk. Worth a visit for collectors or fans of the weird. Their merchandise can either be a bargain or a ripoff, so think before buying.

Buffalo Exchange

A thrift store popular with the indie scene. A great stop if you've got some clothes to give up, or if you're looking for some cheap new threads. A second store opened up in Westwood rather recently.
