Los Angeles, You’re Awesome

April 21, 2013


Just a little snapshot of our first four days in California. It’s been foggy then sunny, and all the while elating.

Ben and I stayed in Downtown LA, which was surprisingly awesome, and then moved on to West Hollywood, which was unsurprisingly awesome. Then we headed out to Santa Monica, where we checked out Venice Beach and consumed many delicious beverages.

I’ll be back with recommendations for all the tasty eats we encountered, yes indeed, but right now I’m  busy living it up at Coachella. I’ve crafted a flower crown and no doubt I’ll be drinking coconut water and stalking Alt-J like it’s my full-time job.

    Big bummer that I have been busy and MIA, or I would have known that you were in my neighborhood (Venice Beach!) and would haven’t taken you guys out for a drink (always fun to meet awesome people)! But now you are in my old hood– SF, and I see that you are hangin’ at the best spots (Tartine, etc…).

    Be sure to have brunch at ZUNI Cafe (el best) and drop by my Friend Brett’s restaurant in Noe Valley– Contigo (Brett had a blog ages ago, before they were so popular (In Praise of Sardines) and practically started his restaurant on it). You would have tons to talk about.

    Best , Lisa

    And don’t forget the weird yummy scoops of ice cream at Humphrey Slocumb!

      Oh lucky you – Venice! We might be back there before we head off, if we’re lucky. I had a solo dinner in 2011 at Zuni but not brunch – noted!! & Contigo was actually on my list to visit, snap! (In Praise of Sardines – best name). Oh & yes, I adored Humphrey Slocombe last time, blew my mind!! Cannot wait to visit. Thanks for the recommendations, lovely! x
