    I Want More
    Hot Stuff is a needed spot here. The E. Broadway location is excellent. The store is next to the Star of Siam Thai Cuisine, and two spots up is Hot Java. As you can see, practically everything here is "hot." The only thing missing in Hot Stuff is the high end goodies, like those you see in Luna.

    A Destination Before the Beach
    The service is usually friendly; it all depends on the counter personnel. Food is okay. Coffee is excellent. Hot chocolate is amazing. The crowd is usually gorgeous.

    Fun w/ the Bears
    This is an iconic place. No less than 5 stars should be included.

    Here to Study?
    Tasty or sweet desserts, men included of course, at least on certain days. To each his own, however.

    The Only Gay Bar in South County
    It's not the "Boom" but can't really say anything bad about Main St. since it's the only gay bar in South County. It's not surprising because online "dating" destroyed the bar scene. And oh, Main St. is only a "tucked away bar" if you're a tourist; it's been here for decades, FCOL. If you're planning to do your latest dance move, skip it since it's a tiny spot. Go to Long Beach for that. Unlike the '80s and '90s, Laguna is no longer known as a gay party town. Sad but true. And gays are back in the closet here. It's time to bring the "Boom" back.
