Having Lunch at The Apple Pan

It’s no secret that I love a good restaurant. I sure write about them enough. But there is one kind of restaurant that I prize above all others – the landmark restaurant. You know the kind…in business forever, revered throughout the area, serving up dishes just like the day it opened. One of my absolute […]

Taking a Class at Krav Maga Worldwide

Awhile back I mentioned a increased focus on wellness on this blog. Because of that my goal has been to take any and all fitness offer that I get. Whether or not I stuck to that goal can be debated (I’m not ready for a mud run! Not yet!). But when I got an offer […]

Dave and Buster’s Los Angeles Now Open

Last week the very first Dave and Buster’s Los Angeles opened. I know, right? I didn’t know it was the first one either. But it is and I recently got to check it out. Located at the The Promenade at Howard Hughes Center just off the 405 it’s a sleek modern showcase for all the […]

Last Remaining Seats 2014 Schedule

Since we’re on the subject of movie palaces today, I thought I’d share with you the 2014 schedule for the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Last Remaining Seats film series. I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It seems like just yesterday I was watching To Catch a Thief at the Orpheum. But in a […]

Touring The United Artists Theatre

When it comes to movie theatres they just don’t make them like they used to. Nowadays if we have stadium seating, movable armrests, and leather seats we think we’re in the lap of luxury. While I admit, I do enjoy these amenities there’s nothing special about the theatre itself. A dark square that’s the epitome […]

Touring the Downtown Women’s Center

So I’ve told you about the wonderful Made by DWC Cafe and Reseller Boutique but I haven’t really told you much about the organization behind it. Recently, I was able to take a tour of facilities of the Downtown Women’s Center and it is quite the organization. The Downtown Women’s Center is based on San […]

Viewing Becoming LA at the Natural History Museum

I love, love, love the Natural History Museum. It truly is one of my favorite places in Los Angeles. But you wouldn’t know it by this blog because it’s been over 2 years since I last wrote about it. And since that post so much has changed! On my last visit the museum was undergoing […]

2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show

full disclousre: I will be attending the boat show for free. All opinions are my own. Remember when I told you all about my harbor cruise at Strictly Sail Long Beach? Well, there’s another fun boating event coming up – the 2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show. It’s happening February 6-9 at the Los […]

Viewing Space Shuttle Endeavour

Well, I finally did it. I finally visited Endeavour. It had been on my list of things to do but I had no desire to make a reservation and wait in line to see it. Nothing against the ship…I’m just not a fan of crowds. So I waited…and waited. This past weekend I was headed […]

Enjoying a Hot Drink at Cafe Demitasse

Confession time. I really shouldn’t drink coffee. I’m no good with caffeine. Even the smallest doses will keep me up all night. But the thing is, I love coffee or, rather, coffee drinks – lattes, mochas, frappes…yum, yum, yum. And recently I discovered another fantastic coffee spot – Cafe Demitasse. Cafe Demitasse is located in […]
