LA puzzles

There are certain things I just don't get about L.A.

Like why do restaurants close so early? Some close at 4 p.m., others at either 7 p.m. or 9 p.m. And this even on a Saturday. Is there just too many restaurants? Do people in L.A. really eat dinner that early? Or do they skip dinner and just go straight to bars and night clubs? This is true even in Koreatown, where restaurants close at 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. In NYC, Korean restaurants don't close until midnight -- quite a few are open 24 hours a day.

And what's with the curbs? Every time I get out of the passenger side of a car, I have to make sure there's enough room for the door to open. About 40% of the time, the curb is way too high for the door. What's with that?

And where are all those missing dots over the "i"s? Angelenos, have you noticed that many of the street signs are missing the dots over the "i"s? And there's no pattern. Like the signs for Pico. One sign will have the dot, while the sign a block away doesn't have one. So what gives?
