Thu May 06, 2004 1:28 pm

I am heading to LAX tomorrow, and need some decent spotting sites. Anyone have any tips?

I'll give my usual advice...head out on North Sepulveda and stop at In-n-Out burger. Eat a Double Double and spot from there.

I agree with Nanook. Grab a table outside at In-n-Out Burger, get a #1combo (with a chocolate shake) and you can't go wrong. If you can be there between 12:00pm and 2:00pm it will be even better with lot's of Jumbo's coming in from Asia and the early arrivals from Europe too.
Happy spotting!

I'll throw in a quick plug for the parking lot behind the Proud Bird Restaurant located at the corner of 111th Street and Aviation Blvd:
