Downtown Dining: LudoBites 5.0

Downtown Dining: LudoBites 5.0

I did it. I scored the golden ressie to LudoBites at Gram & Papas last week. Of course my reservation for dinner was after almost narrowly missing a deadline on previously mentioned big and secret project, and I couldn’t eat half the things on the menu (no red meat for me, and it seems the...
Type Life

Type Life

I just got back from the opening night of TypeCon, a conference on yes, type, which is taking place here in L.A. this year. It featured an hour-long documentary on a man who made and cut letters for a living, from sketching them out on paper to carving them in miniature form on metal blocks,...
Waking Up in Vegas

Waking Up in Vegas

Two commercials, two websites, one identity system, one show package, and one very big and very secret design project. Work’s been kicking my ass since the beginning of summer, and I needed a vacation, stat. BF had some Priceline credits that we needed to use before the end of July, so we booked a quick...
F21 Fun

F21 Fun

A little late to the party with this one. (Pun!) It’s been a couple of years since I closed down my fashion-related blog, so it was cool to be included among the stylish L.A. bloggerati at last week’s Forever 21 party for the Brian Lichtenberg collection. All thanks to Fashion Intel, one of the nicest...
And then there were two.

And then there were two.

Soon to come - a new look for Love Angeles and more of this right here. Trying to get it done in between work and, you know, working on the weekends.
Downtown Dining: First and Hope

Downtown Dining: First and Hope

After the World of Color show, we walked over to First and Hope for dinner. I had heard about this place opening earlier this year, but had no expectations otherwise. And I was blown away. The decor is elegant and classic, but sleek and modern enough to excite and attract pretty young things. In other...
Downtown Discovery: World of Color

Downtown Discovery: World of Color

When our studio was researching businesses around downtown to work with, we discovered that the Disney Concert Hall was designed by Gehry to be able to project video images onto the swooping planes. To my dismay this idea never came to fruition, at least not to my knowledge, until recently when the Disney World of...
Downtown Dining: The Gorbals

Downtown Dining: The Gorbals

I have many people – and things? – to thank for this night. Ilan Hall and the Gorbals, for hooking it up with his delicious bacon-wrapped balls. I’m talking about the matzo balls. Don’t get nasty with me. Didn’t try the balls myself – my boyfriend was there – but heard good things from the...
Downtown Discovery: The Case of the Mystery GQ Wall

Downtown Discovery: The Case of the Mystery GQ Wall

Not knowing exactly where this wall was in downtown has been bothering me immensely. Because I KNOW I’ve seen it before. BF and I have even spent a few minutes driving around downtown in hopes of spotting it. Little Tokyo… Grand Ave… nothing. And then on the way back home late Friday night, I saw...
Downtown Dining: Babycakes & Bingo Nights

Downtown Dining: Babycakes & Bingo Nights

I never have to leave downtown for the best cupcakes, what with Big Man Bakes and Babycakes both in the neighborhood. We stopped by Babycakes last night for a cupcake only to come home with five more. Four I won from their Tuesday Bingo Nights! Every win gets you two cupcakes. That means I won...

Type Spotting: Another City is Possible

Stumbled across these when we were poking around Farmlab the last time. - Shot by BF and Artful Dodger -
Downtown Discovery: Goats on Angel's Knoll

Downtown Discovery: Goats on Angel’s Knoll

Was super excited to hear that the goats were coming back to munch on the weeds at Angel’s Knoll. I caught them on the tail-end – har har – of their work week here: these pictures were shot after they were moved to the area right below Angel’s Flight. And some Blackberry snaps on Angel’s...
