Seems like the time search does not work with all cities.
I tried:

what's the time in beverly hills
google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...

what's the time in beverly hills, california
google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...

what's the time in Anaheim California
google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...

Lol results:
time in Anaheim California
google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...
"Local results for time near Anaheim, CA" it's a concept not a place you go to...lol.

I don't get any results, may it be because I am in Germany? But I tried also with a tunnel service to hide my german source place. Nothing.

I wonder why they've stopped the Whois feature. An issue with the hosting companies? It could have been very useful.

Done a German experiment. Pretty disappointing results:
