[dropcap]I[/dropcap] am not a vegetarian! Occasionally I wish I were because it would make dining with most of my friends easier but I love steak. In a city obsessed with food culture I am no stranger to good food. I’ll say it, I’m a foodie and avid Yelp user. I’ll try any new restaurant that […]

NOT YOUR AVERAGE VEGETARIAN

NOT YOUR AVERAGE VEGETARIAN

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] was in West Hollywood for meetings so I did the usual drive around looking for a new lunch spot to blog about. I passed by Food Lab and the exterior looked appealing so I stopped in to grab a bite to eat. True to LA form, there were an eclectic group of hipsters, eccentric types and fit twenty somethings indulging on healthy salads […]

ALFRED'S PRETTY IN PINK TEA ROOM

I took a trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley for a quick 4 night getaway to checkout the Napa Valley Cab Fest which ended up being one of the best weekends I’ve had in awhile. If drinking wine all weekend wasn’t perfect enough, I discovered the best brunch I have ever had in my life in St. Helena, California North […]

BEST BRUNCH IN NAPA VALLEY

Okay, I know what you’re thinking… How is it possible this is my first time at In-N-Out Burger, and why am I blogging about it, right?! The truth, I can explain.
