I was actually thinking, m'self, that the liquor store would be a great idea... I did a bit of googlin' and, apparently, it can be found on the corner of 7th Avenue & Main Street.

("apparently" = "according to this page")

And, yeah, I'm just bored enough to mapquest it, too... the best I could come up with was a map for W 7th Street & S Main Street.

I hope my extreme boredom can be of some use to ya!

Downtown LA (not sure what corner) is home to the Million Dollar Hotel, and the location of a few videos, I think. It's kind of derelict, but neat...that whole part of downtown is rather interesting actually.

Somewhere in San Francisco was the location of the Save The Yuppies gig, part of which appears on Rattle And Hum. Justin Herman Plaza or something like that. They never should've removed Bono's act of vandalism.

Someone who actually knows something about San Francisco could probably tell you about this one a whole lot better than I can.

Justin Hermann Plaza is right at the intersection of Embarcadero and Market, on the bay. You can't miss it - it's in the middle of all things Touristy in the city.

Hey there, the Jim Henson studios on La Brea in Hollywood is the old A&M Studios where Rattle 'N' Hum was recorded. If you drive a block North and turn left on Santa Monica Blvd. are all sorts of landmarks from the 'Desire' video and the previously stated Formosa Cafe. Further west is Barney's Beanery where I met them. Mann's Chinese theater is where U2 busked before going into the premiere of Rattle 'N' Hum. And you should visit Amoeba in both San Francisco & Hollywood. Hope this helps, ~tiny

i say while in LA go to a resturant called The Pantry. It's near the MDH area, and is pretty nice for where it's located, and is a 24/7 joint. A scene from the MDH movie was shot there. The food ain't bad either.
