WeHo Gay Nightlife

West Hollywood’s best dive bar? WeHo’s best sushi restaurant? Our city’s best barbershop, pet boarding place, Pilates studio?

We published the results in West Hollywood Magazine, our quarterly print publication, which was out last week and which you can find in news racks, restaurants and shops around the city.

Brought to the table by first-year council member John D’Amico at the last regular meeting of 2011, he raised constituents’ and visitors’ concerns about Pride’s lack of relevance to them.

“I think there is a serious disconnect for a lot of people on that event,” about which he has heard much criticism since his March election. He said he heard from people who called the event “lame” and unbecoming the film capital of the world, “especially with so many creative people living in it.”
