ANSWER:Naturally, you'll see stars there--it's the entrance to the Griffith Observatory and Planetarium high atop the Los Feliz Hills. That big dome in the background should've been a cinch clue
KNOW YOUR CITY, NO.11--You can see more stars here than at any Hollywood premiere because it's one of the best night spots in town. No liquor served, but you get that high feeling. Just for fun, can you guess what it is? Answer on Page 8, Part 2.
