Glamorous Glendale

This may be one of those only-in-L.A phenomena that makes this city great (or terrifying, depending on your perspective). The latest outdoor "mall" from infamous developer Rick Caruso puts his first project, the Grove, to shame. First off, there are the stores: Juicy Couture, Anthropologie, Martin + Osa, Kira Plastinina, H & M, Stuart Weitzman, Tiffany--it's practically retail heaven. Then there's the food, from fine dining (yummy Katsuya and Frida) to casual fare (Pinkberry and the retro-fabulous Jewel City Diner). And let's not forget the oversized Pacific Theatres, with 18 screens and stadium seating, and the roped-in playground replete with slides and a central water fountain. Play on, Angelenos!
