It's hard not to know about "Jersey Shore" these days, even if you've never seen the show. Snookie, Pauly D and the rest of their gel-loving posse has invaded the collective unconscious, via magazine covers in the grocery check-out line and web-circulating sound bites.
But for those of you who have thus far been left out of this odd, albeit amusing, cultural phenomenon, "Jersey Shore" is an MTV reality show about a group of big-haired, over-tanned, heavily-accented Jersey friends and all their gym-going, tan-bedding, laundry-obsessing antics.
And though Los Angeles life feels about as similar to this particular version of New Jersey as does, say, Instanbul, Citysearch has nevertheless created a feature (public service announcement?) about where to find "Jersey Shore Style in LA."
Making the cut: 24 Hour Fitness, U-Tan and Hollywood Laundry, all rounding out the GTL (gym, tan, laundry) triumvirate.
Use this as a guide, Shore-lovers. Or as a warning.
