It’s hard not to like a magazine that’s turned pot shots at pop culture into a business while putting out some of the funniest, shocking and most memorable writing as well as introducing the world to such great photographers who would otherwise be underground like Ryan McGinley and the incredible Terry Richardson. Check the The 2009 Vice Photo Show for some of the most interesting photography out there today. One of the best affordable Vietnamese restaurants in the city, Nha Trang is right near the downtown courthouse, making it a high volume place. Despite that, the food is great and the Pho (rice noodle soup) dishes are $5 and under. Named after William S. Burroughs novel, Naked Lunch is a cool and comfortable bar where local artists usually gather. No shooting up though! One of the best taqueria’s in the city, the Mexican food at La Esquina is authentic and to die for. While tacos will set you back $3, plates are in the $6 to $7.25 range.
