Man Up

LA's top 5 spots to go with your bros


The new Arena League LA KISS are a welcome addition to the local (OK, Anaheim) sports scene, but come on, how are we supposed to cheer them on? Chant K-I-S-S?

Until an NFL team comes to LA, we're going to have to get creative about our bro time.

Here are the top 5 KISS-free activities for you and your fellow dudes.
5. Man Vs. Wild
First, get your blood flowing on a hike though these rugged mountains. Unlike your girlfriend, who will start asking for water and complain about a chipped manicure after 30 minutes, you won't have to worry about your man-companions staying with you step-for-step as you work your way towards the most breathtaking views of Los Angeles.
Los Liones. Los Liones Dr., Santa Monica
4. Geek Out
The performance space at the back of Meltdown Comics hosts comedy shows that have drawn the likes of Louis C.K., Jim Gaffigan, and Robin Williams. For an evening of geekoplectic entertainment, go on comic book release day (Wednesday, duh).
NerdMelt. 7522 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood

3. Taco Crawl
You, your crew, and tacos until you're not sure you can stand up and walk to the car — what could be better? Start in East L.A. with Los Cinco Puntos and Tacos Jeesy’s, then continue onto Boyle Heights with Guisados and Las Brisas.
Cinco Puntos. 3300 E. Cesar E Chavez Ave., East Los Angeles (323-261-4084)

2. Burn Rubber
Return to a time when girls still had cooties, and the only thing that mattered was high score on Space Invaders. Race gas-powered, Hoosier-tired drag racers of destruction. Don't worry about holding back or about red tape, these wheels of steel are fully bonded, licensed, and insured by the appropriate local authorities.
SpeedZone. 7871 Castleton St., City of Industry (626-913-9663)
1. Hey, Speed Racer
Now that you’ve got an appetite for acceleration, you and your co-pilot can rent a Gallardo from Vanity Exotics and shred down L.A.’s most rewarding roads.
$500 at Vanity Exotics. 1500 Rosecrans Ave., Manhattan Beach (800-699-0612)
