Blah Blah Land

I’ve been taking quick trips to LA lately. That makes my seafood craving belly very, very happy. Let me walk you through my usual hang outs.

  • grab coffee at Dogtown
  • then a light breakfast at Cora’s 
  • hang at the pool bar at Le Meridien
  • stop by Venice Ale House for the best people watching
  • enjoy some decent deals Herringbone‘s happy hour (the Jale Berry is great)
  • rent a car and drive out to Topanga Canyon
  • hit up the Malibu beaches — El Matador State Beach has beautiful rock formations
  • sushi dinner at Sugarfish (gotta love the ‘trust me’ option)
  • or if you’re more in the mood for New England style seafood, give Blue Plate Oysterette a try
  • for dive bar lovers, check out Ye Olde King’s Head
  • and if you want to feel like you’re at a party straight out of Mad Men, get a drink at The Bungalow
  • rent bikes and go for a ride along the beach path (it’s 24 miles!)
  • ride the ferris wheel on Santa Monica Pier
  • always keep your eyes peeled–sure you might spot a celebrity or two, but the locals are some of the most entertaining folks you’ll every lay eyes on

I usually wear my gold tennis classics when I’m somewhere beach-y and warm like Santa Monica, but looks like it’s time to retire these bad boys.

Ever have a pair of sneakers you know you should let go of, but you just don’t want to say goodbye? I get attached to the sneakers that have traveled the world with me. Sentimental and silly, I know. Perhaps I’ll just make them my new “outdoor music festival shoes” so they can have a few more adventures.

If you have any future LA travel tips for me, let me know!

  1. Beautiful photos. I live in LA, and looking at your pix made me think I need to get out to the beach more often. If you ever get inland, you might want to spend some time checking out the architecture. There are lots of cool buildings. I just posted about a historic apartment complex in Silverlake that’s going through a rough period. Here’s the link if you want to check it out. https://goo.gl/dqtckc
