Error in Fodor's 2012 book on Los Angeles: location of MILK.

The ice cream store MILK is actually located at 7290 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles. The Fodor's 2012 book on Los Angeles, pg. 116, incorrectly gives the address as 7920 Beverly Blvd. The phone number in the book is correct: 323-939-6455.

Good ice cream!

It is better than giving everyone the wrong address for a MILF.

Try google, I hear it's the latest thing.

Always verify any guidebook, if you can, particularly for addresses.

It happened recently in Argentina. Fodor's missed the winery I wanted to go to by about 30 miles. Close, no cigar.

It will happen again.

Adu - bad boy!

Yes ice cream eaters are known to show up as blood thirty hordes and ransack and loot.

Haha 7920 Beverly Blvd comes up as the Goodwill store on Google. I doubt anyone will mistake that for ice cream.

I always love when the GPS sends you on a wild goose chase.

I typed up 3 single spaced pages of mistakes in the Puerto Vallarta guidebook(!!) and sent them in to Fodor's editors. Never heard a word in reply.

NObody appreciates being told they are wrong, suze. Especially here at Fodors.

For laughs, hold on to your list of corrections and see if any of them appear in the next edition.

Well shoot Suzie I thought they'd be fallin all over themselves, eternally greatful to me! I also made those same corrections right here on the website, going into the reviews section and posting the right information by making it part of a 'review'.

I think there is a business model here.

Dislickstick Ice Cream. You want vanilla, we give you chocolate.
