What does LES mean?

Excuse me for a probably dumb question, but what does LES mean? I know what LFS means but have seen LES in some members posts and was just wondering.

Don't feel dumb just because you are from a generation which did not mind actually using words! When you only type with your thumbs you have to take shortcuts to prove how good you are at things.

I feel like I should honestly call myself a New Yorker.... I was born in NY and I've been around a lot while growing up...

You arent a new yorker until youve sat in traffic, been involved with a crime (or witnessed one), and tasted shwarma or something that resembles it!

Speaking of which... we should meet up soon for Shwarma or something that resembles it real soon! The Olive tree on macdougal (off west fourth st) in the village is a nice spot.
