Looking for expensive groceries and gourmet food items from Napa like fresh jams, nuts coated in fancy seasonings, and salted chocolates to take back in your suitcase? Then Oakville Grocery is the place for you. While Oakville Grocery is insanely priced, everything they sell is also insanely delicious and convinces me that yes I do … More Oakville Grocery

Gott’s Roadside

It is time, once again, to discuss burgers. Growing up in the Midwest, our options were either the very flat McDonald’s style burger, the thick pub style burger that you get in a sit down restaurant which requires a fork and knife to eat (plus it costs upwards of $20), or a freshly grilled backyard … More Gott’s Roadside

Napa Farmhouse Inn

Napa could definitely be considered one of the capitals of the hotel market. There are endless top rated hotels to choose from, all with their own inviting aesthetic, relaxing spas, and delicious restaurants. Even hough every year multiple new hotels continue to open, they all stay booked, busy, and expensive. Although almost every one of … More Napa Farmhouse Inn

Oxbow Market

I am always a sucker for a “cafeteria style” indoor market with a long line of food stalls, no matter how touristy it may seem. Napa’s Oxbow Public Market did not disappoint as it introduced me to one of the best beef sandwiches I have ever tried from the delicious Five Dot Ranch and Cookhouse’s … More Oxbow Market

Eveleigh

A farm to table restaurant on the Sunset Strip, an interesting combination! The Sunset Strip is more known for classic Hollywood clubs and dive bars also acting as late night music venues, but tucked away along this iconic street is the cozy and tasty restaurant Eveleigh. I am a huge fan of any place that … More Eveleigh

Atwater Village

Wedged in between Glendale and Los Feliz in LA, I passed Atwater Village a few times before finally taking the time to stop and explore the little town with colorful storefronts. Atwater Village’s main street is along Glendale Blvd, at the cross streets of Seneca Ave … More Atwater Village

Father’s Office

I would say burgers are one of my top indulgent foods (besides anything with sugar of course). Anytime I have a strong craving it is usually for a delicious burger. So, when Father’s Office, a little hole in the wall in Santa Monica, was listed on travel websites as having some of the best burgers … More Father’s Office

Hustlers

When I first saw the trailer for Hustlers, I honestly misjudged and wrote it off as looking corny and not worth $15 in theaters. I am so glad that it received so many positive reviews following its premiere, and that I was convinced to then see it this opening weekend. For anyone not on twitter … More Hustlers

World Central Kitchen

Following the most recent hurricane damage in the Bahamas due to hurricane Dorian, which is currently headed for Florida and other states along the south and east coast in the United States, I think this is a perfect time to highlight a not-for-profit organization, World Central Kitchen. While watching the news these days, it is … More World Central Kitchen
