Cirque du Soleil’s Toruk Comes to Ontario + GIVEAWAY

I love seeing live performance. Whether it’s a play, the opera, dance or a concert I want to go. At the top of my live performance wish list is Cirque du Soleil. For years I’ve heard of it’s breathtaking shows and I know several people who have been awed by the acrobatics. Yet, somehow I’ve […]

Visiting Rubel Castle

In my explorations I’ve come across many unique and interesting places. There are some that I enjoy but don’t need to see again. There are others that I fall in love with and return to over and over. And then there are a select few that I’m so smitten with that they instantly become one […]

Fall Desserts with Friends at Stacked

As you know, I recently completed an epic road trip around California. When traveling one of my favorite things to do is to collect local culinary treats for friends at home. It’s a ritual between me and my best buds. Each time one of us travels we pick up fun local things for the other […]

Visiting the Streetlight Museum

People often ask me how I find out about so many different places to visit in Southern California and the truth is I don’t often know myself. People tell me things, I see them online and I read about them in magazines. I just keep my eyes and ears open and anything unique I come across […]

Dinner at Oggi’s Sports|Brewhouse|Pizza

Ah the joys of a road trip – seeing beautiful sites, trying new things and a whole lot of adventure. It can also be pretty tiring as I found out when I recently returned from a week long adventure around California (which I can’t wait to share with you). Back home I didn’t want to […]

Pairing Angel City Beer with Lawless Jerky

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Angel City Brewery. I love visiting the public house and their beer’s not to shabby either. Every once in awhile I’m lucky enough to get a surprise package from them and recently I found one on my doorstep. I eagerly opened it and discovered two bottles […]

Visiting the Museum of Neon Art

A few years back I visited the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas and it was fascinating to view the gigantic neon signs that once lined the strip but it would have been even better to see them lit. I have only vague memories of Vegas in its neon heyday and could only imagine what some […]

Lunching at The Poke Shack

If pressed to name the latest food trend I would have to say poke. Dining spots featuring this fresh dish are opening up all over SoCal and you can find offerings in many local markets. I, for one, am delighted about this. I love poke and the more places I can find it the better. […]

As soon as August rolls around I start long for fall. I just want to put on a sweater, grab a hot cider and curl up with a good book. Well, today it’s finally here. It’s the first day of Autumn and while the weather may not be cooperating at least I’ve got the perfect […]
