You can't complain about how hot it is on Facebook anymore because your Midwestern family's "witty" responses are leaving you feeling, well, heated; "at least you have the beach," "don't you have VIP access to a pool somewhere Mr. Hollywood?"
Any local Angeleno knows that traveling to the beach from Los Angeles proper is often more effort than it's worth. Not only does it take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to get there with traffic, once you arrive, you'll have to spend another hour or so scouring for free parking. If you finally make it to the sand before giving up altogether, you'll have to find that perfect area that is 1.close enough to the bathrooms, 2. far, far away from anyone under the age of 17, 3. near the water, but not too near-- you don't want to draw attention to your open (glass) container.
If you are past the age where sneaking in to private pools is acceptable, consider inviting friends over for a porch party instead. Below you'll find four *hot* items that will help you and your friends kick off the Summer of the Patio (and briefly take your minds off of the unyielding heat.) Call the store at 323-644-5590 to see if items below are still available.

Who can think at a time like this? Temperatures are tipping the scales and you have nearly run out of clothing articles to take off.

You don't want to add "public indecency" to your list of summer time problems.
