The street, built exactly 100 feet wide in 1913 to allow a team of horses to turn around, will rumble with several hundred cattle hooves for the Western Stampede Cattle Drive — one of just a few in the country.
Afterward, visitors can stick around for three days of calf roping and barrel racing at the fairgrounds, a few blocks away.
Los Angeles expands its annual All-Star Chef Classic, featuring more than 25 of the world’s best chefs, including San Francisco’s Dominique Crenn (Atelier Crenn) and Daniel Patterson (Coi); Nancy Silverton (Mozza) and Suzanne Goin (Lucques) of Los Angeles; Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand) from Paris; and Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar) of New York.
The heart of the event is a series of Masters Dinners highlighting American, French and British cuisine.

Viewed from the backseat of the tiny Cessna 206 at 1,400 feet, the Japanese airstrip built on Peleliu Island in the 1930s — and not significantly improved since — looked more like a goat path through the jungle.
There are more than 700 species of coral, and ocean preservation group CEDAM named it one of the Seven Wonders of the Underwater World, comparable to the Blue Hole in Belize, the Galapagos and the Great Barrier Reef.
Which is how I came to be exploring the country by air, land and, yes, sea, to seek out the island culture, to kayak a UNESCO site, to witness the scars of World War II, to intentionally cavort with jellyfish, as well as to find other diversions that don’t involve strapping on dive tanks or dodging sharks.
Time, tides, wind and water ate away most of the exposed limestone, leaving the mushroom-shaped jungle-topped isles, some of which are home to Palau’s more than 70 marine lakes — the highest concentration anywhere on the planet, according to UNESCO.

The trouble with carrying a backpack while traveling is that it often makes you look like a backpacker, with locals viewing you as one step up from a vagrant.
The Solo Executive Leather Backpack is a stylish choice to use on the road for carrying your laptop and a day’s worth of stuff without looking out of place in a posh hotel lobby, restaurant or office.
The exterior body is made from durable leather, and the straps are quite solid.
Sturdy and stylish, with a good set of accessible, organized pouches.
When fully packed, it becomes kind of boxy and unwieldy, and its clean “executive” look precludes its flexibility for use as an adventure pack.
Ask most why they visit Big Sur, and you’ll hear about Esalen’s hot tubs or the Ambrosia Burger at Nepenthe, both sumptuous activities that come with a view of the big, beautiful Pacific.
 ask someone really in the know, and you might hear about hermits just social enough to offer a few rustic rooms for those needing to trade a hectic outer life for a quiet inner one.
The New Camaldoli Hermitage in Big Sur is three hours by car, but light-years away from the constant Internet buzz of the Bay Area.
Not your typical vacation spot, Camaldoli is a working monastery under a vow of silence that extends to its guests.

Each room comes complete with a vintage set of Boy Scout-style stacked tins, the kind that keeps the cold food cold and the hot food hot.

The food is mostly vegetarian and often comes from the monks’ own organic garden.
Keep it simple, people: sunset on the Pacific.
The towering redwoods have shredded most Internet connectivity, and the remainder has drowned in the Pacific.
