Denny-Blaine vs. Venice Beach?

Marian: Venice is full of weirdos! And skaters! I'm all for it!

Lena: I'm a saltwater girl all the way. I mean, I'll jump in any water, but I grew up on Venice Beach—and the freaks, serial tanners, old surfers, and kooks alike, those are my people. Fresh water freaks me out.

Shana: Venice, because instead of hipsters it's full of freaks of all kinds. Roller-skating Rasta dude selling homemade reggae CDs for kids! Seagulls eating pizza! Camera crews standing around goofy looking babes! Psychics, caricature artists, sword swallowers, people making out, etc. And a beach!

Dick's vs. In-N-Out Burger?

Lena: In-N-Out animal style with hot peppers and mustard. But Dick's fries.

Marian: Dick's. Far superior. In-N-Out fries are a joke.

Shana: Dick's is better.

Easy Street Records vs. Amoeba?

Lena: Easy Street. Amoeba is just overwhelming to me. But if you're looking for a rare item, Amoeba is more likely to have it in its warehouse-size store.

Shana: I love Easy Street, but Amoeba is magic.

"Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle" by Nirvana (1993) vs. "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (1991)?

Lena: "Under the Bridge" was one of the first songs I learned on guitar. As a kid, I was more into RHCP. But as an adult, Nirvana all the way. Just way better songwriting.

Marian: It took years for me to unlearn the funk influence I inadvertently took from RHCP's drummer. Nirvana is where it's at.

Shana: Oh god, always Nirvana.

Lumberjack vs. Man Bun?

Lena: Gonna have to go with lumberjack. Man bun is a totally different guy. But I've also seen lumberjacks with man buns. Now what do you do with that?

Marian: Sigh. Lumberjack.

Shana: It just DEPENDS, man

Coffee vs. Smoothie?

Lena: Coffee, then smoothie, then grapefruit.

Marian: Coffee!

Shana: I'll have what Lena's having.

Olympic Peninsula vs. Joshua Tree?

Lena: That's a tie. These places are so different and both are incredibly magical, everyone should go to both.

Marian: Olympic Peninsula!!! Ineffably beautiful, and I grew up in the Northwest, so it holds a special place in my heart.

Shana: I think a few months ago I would have said Joshua Tree, but after several months of dry heat, the Olympic Peninsula sounds so refreshing.
