an electric corner | diet coke in a glass bottle | a production of Rent in la habra | fence decorations in los feliz | pho cafe | glass bottle collection | old-fashioned candy | tomato-mozz-basil sandwich | zucchini bread from broome street general store 

I had a friend from new york city in town this weekend so there was a lot of go-go-go-discover-go-go-go! I wanted to show her all my favorite restaurants and all my favorite other secret Los Angeles gems as well.  We ate at the best sushi you'll ever have in your life, R23, in downtown, L.A., went for this really beautiful hike in Malibu, checked out Contagion at the vintage Vista Theater, had some margaritas and celebrated a friend's birthday at El Chavo in Silverlake, checked out the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, hauled in to La Habra to see one of my actor's performances of Rent (I'm addicted, I admit it!) and finished the weekend of with a delicious burger from Umami (have you been there yet? If not ... go...NOW!)

I feel like I got a lot accomplished as far as sight-seeing goes but now it's back to the grind of the work week. I hope everyone had a great weekend. It's supposed to be 20 degrees cooler than last week in L.A. Maybe fall is coming our way after all.


  1. Beautiful pictures. I love diet coke out of a bottle, why is it so much better?

  2. I love when friends come to visit and you make the most of your hometown, cramming in favorite sights and bites. Looks like it was a great time!
