Places to wine, dine, kick back and unwind in Orange County and Los Angeles, CA.
When you live in a pretty bland area of Orange County where everyone’s lawn is nice and artificially green and every house looks the same but is a different color (the neighborhood in “Edward Scissorhands” comes to mind), the food choices are much the same: chain after chain after chain. Here, the Carl’s Jr seems […]
After spending the day walking around lush gardens of The Huntington Library (and nearly wanting to gouge out my eyeballs to stop the itching), my boyfriend and I worked up quite an appetite.

It had a “Coccoonish” feel, but sitting among the blue-haired folks didn’t bother […]
I attended an event on Tuesday at The Draft Bar and Grill in Studio City, CA. I’ve only been to a couple of bars in my life, but this one definitely made an impression. First, the service was great.
