cnnmoney.com says Hermosa Beach, California is the number one place to be rich and single, and it's a birthplace of beach volleyball; this past weekend home to the AVP tournament. Truly a scene of skin and sand. With the sun setting over palm trees, head towards Hollywood. Catch a screening of the classic Steve McQueen flick, Bullitt, hosted by Cinespia. Wait for the masses to leave and create jesudancing silhouettes.

A snack is a must, and why not hit a famed food truck…lines around the block and twitter updates to track one down.

Going back to the booze, Bigfoot West fresh out of their soft opening, has a bar designed with a replica set from the movie Yes Men and brings the home-brewed "Sasquatch" to the backwoods bourgeois. Signature cocktails and a list of bourbons that would make Bogart and Hemingway blush.

For brunch the next morning try the diner. It will impress. And most likely you'll see a prime example of the timeless American car.

Take a breather, cruise the strand and then don your Sunday best and hit the Hollywood Bowl for a picnic and a show. Roll the dice, it could be a night of the Los Angeles Philharmonic or Depeche Mode, and no matter what, you can't lose. Coast to sleep to the sound of beach waves; and dream of In N’ Out on the way to LAX on Monday morning.
