Orange County board PLEASE?

Would you please post an Orange County board separate from LA? It could be Orange County/San Diego. Thank you!

  1. I wouldn't want that -- many more people in Orange County go to LA than San Diego on a regular basis.

    1. Kaisgraham, I really don't like long drives in traffic - GO OC! Please start and OC Board. Thanks!

      1. I disagree. There is so much overlap between LA and OC users that it would just make it harder to locate things. How often does someone ask for the "best X" and get responses for both LA and OC. I can't tell you how many times I've learned about OC places in response to one of those threads and, months later, while driving through OC, have remembered something I read. I would never have learned about those places under normal circumstances because I would not normally go to an OC board.

          Besides, once it reopens, how else will we lure you LA money types to Orange County if we can't flaunt Thai Nakorn in front of your faces??

            I agree - If people would just put the area(s) they are reporting on or looking for in the subject line it would help alot.

          2. I agree. As an L.A.-centric reader, I find the huge volume of OC posts on the L.A. board helps keep the signal/noise close to intolerable. And the average L.A. user ventures to OC about as often as the Manhattan user goes to New Jersey, although OC posters may venture into Los Angeles more often than that.

            1. Agreed! Even though Orange County is not known for it's cuisine, we do have things to talk about. I would venture to say that LA is anti OC and vice versa.

              When I first signed up I started posting in "California" because I thought L.A. would be such a stretch for my friendly neighborhood OC restos. But then I noticed "California" means San Diego.

              Then again, I'm the first to suggest that you get a passport to visit L.A., it's so darned far.
