It's only April, but it feels like a middle of summer already in Downtown LA. With tall buildings trapping the heat in the city, there's no mercy in the afternoons. To escape the heat, I stopped by one of my spots, Grand Central Market for lunch. There are so many cool things going on at Grand Central Market that all you need to do is find an empty table and watch. There are a bunch of great food vendors of all kinds including a craft beer vendor and Chinese food spot (my two of my favorites for lunch). There is also a farmer's market where you can get all kinds of locally-grown produce and vending machines that serve all kinds of drinks you've never heard of before.
While summer is my least-favorite season thanks to the heat, being able to go to cool spots like Grand Central Market to escape the heat make it a little bit better.
