Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Good curry, but the coconut rice. To die for. Yum.

Done but not over...

I’ll keep posting to this from time to time, but I think for now I want my focus off of things like eating out!

Johnnie's Pastrami

If you are fond of pastrami, or of 50’s era diners, check it out. Takes only cash—no plastic, no checks. All the fixtures are original, and rumor has it that some of the waitresses are, too.

It’s a tiny little place on Sepulveda in Culver City. It isn’t health food, but it is delicious. Hours are generous: 10 am to at least 1 am every day; on Friday and Saturday it’s open until 3 am.

4017 Sepulveda Blvd
Culver City, CA 90230

The good stuff. New York style. Slice of cheese for just $2.35. They also have great salads(mixed fresh for you), sandwiches, soups, and pasta.

Located on west Wilshire between Fairfax and La Jolla, on the North side.

KJ’s diner at 8731 Lincoln Blvd (near the intersection with Manchester) has great diner food, friendly staff, and a bowling alley attached to it! The AMF El Dorado Bowl adds an additional dimension to the diner atmosphere.

KJ’s is quite friendly about substitutions, if you are on a diet. They seem to be friendly about everything.

Farmers' Market Falafel

I don’t know the name of the kiosk with Falafel and other Middle Eastern goodies at the Farmers’ Market (by the Grove) but I heartily recommend it. If you want to close your eyes and be in Jerusalem, I don’t know of a better place!

I have just moved here and I have a thing for breakfast on Sundays, so my first entry will be on a breakfast joint. LeRoy’s is in Monrovia, right off the 210 on Huntington. Exit Huntington Dr and go east. It is on the left after a couple of blocks. You will pass a Trader Joes on your right.

LeRoy’s is inexpensive, and serves up big breakfast. They have a counter you can sit at if you are on your own. They call you ‘Hon’ and is all American Breakfast should be!

Vinoteca is a new beer and wine bar on Hillhurst Ave. in Los Feliz that opened in late 2005. Started (I believe) by the folks at Farfalla (on the same block), Vinoteca offers dining options from Tropicalia, the Brazilian restaurant next door. The empanadas are bigger than my fist, and I’ve enjoyed each of the entrées I’ve had there. Ideal dining for two, since the space severely limits the number of tables. They offer dozens of wines by the glass, ranging between $7 and $12. Vinoteca has definitely seen an uptick in popularity—we used to be able to stroll in and take our pick of tables. Our last two visits we’ve had to wait for seating. But I would still definitely recommend it.

Mao's Kitchen

Mao’s Kitchen in Venice is, I think, the best Chinese restaurant I’ve eaten at in LA. It’s on Pacific, near the corner of Windward. It’s a pretty small place, but we’ve been able to get tables (some of them are long communal tables, to fit with the name and communist propaganda on the walls) quickly on Saturday nights with no problem.

Indian Food.

My all-time favorite indian restaurant in the history of the world and time is on Westwood Blvd. New India Cafe. Across from the Borders. About $14 an entree. So good.
