entertaining guests in LA - suggestions welcome

a good friend from new york is coming for a visit this weekend. when I have friends and family here from ny, I tend to over-plan, over-itininerize and generally become an overwrought, one-woman welcome wagon to this city. this time, we only have two things planned: a trip to the getty (in brentwood) and reservations at AOC on sat. my friend has been to LA before, but she hasnt been to either of those two places. I had suggested she bring clothes for hiking and yoga but the weather doesn't look likely to cooperate. so I'm asking readers for suggestions: where would you take friends visiting LA on rainy days? we're already holding off on pedicures until she gets here as a back-up rainy weather plan B. please email or post suggestions in the comments for cool things to do/places to see when the weather blows.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I had some friends in town from MI and it poured the whole time they were here. I took them to the Improv on a Saturday night, and they had the best time ever.

It probably won't rain as much as you think....

Dim Sum in Monterrey Park at NBC.

Ride the Gold Line from Union Station to Pasadena and walk around old town,

Go to the LA Arboreteum in Arcadia.

Take her wine tasting near Santa Barbara.

Shake up her cliches and show her that LA is not bounded by LaCienega and the Ocean.
