With Manhattanite Andy Cohen in Los Angeles for a week-long Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen takeover of the Palace Theatre, the host sat down to reflect on some important things other New Yorkers really need to know when visiting L.A. (clip above). Because — as most New Yorkers would be quick to assert — it's a whole different world.
Here's his take on the top intel for New Yorkers' next trip to the foreign land on the opposite coast:
1. The weather is confusing.
Unlike in NYC, where hot summer days typically also translate to hot nights, Andy notes L.A. is different. "Bring a sweater," he warns. "It's cool at night, even though it seems hot" during the day.
2. Ditch the car.
New Yorkers who are accustomed to sauntering down to the bar down the street and then stumbling home will be pleased to know that, thanks to ridesharing, in recent years, L.A. too makes that practice similarly easy and spontaneous. "Make sure you take Uber or Lyft, because you should never drink and drive." Real talk and excellent advice, Andy.
3. Spot celebs. (It's so easy.)
Yes, the stereotypes are true: Los Angeles really is a place where celebs are just like us — they go to the gym! They shop at Gelson's! They hike Runyon Canyon! So Andy's last tip for New Yorkers visiting L.A. is, "Keep your eyes open because there are stars everywhere!"
