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...

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...

Downtown Dining: Clifton's Cafeteria

Downtown Dining: Clifton’s Cafeteria

This is a picture of Ray Harryhausen speaking at my college, when I was still just a wide-eyed art school kid in the Bay Area. (Okay, tired-eyed. That school kicked my ass. Because I actually worked my ass off.)┬áRay Harryhausen, THE father of stop-motion animation. As in, he’s legendary. Of course, being that we were...
DTLA Love: Eclipse Connection

DTLA Love: Eclipse Connection

I know you don’t have to ask if I’ve watched Eclipse already. The Riley character gets a noteworthy nod from me – it was the first time in a Twilight movie that I went, Oh, someone that is actually believable as a vampire, in a scary, but not cheesy, and kind of hot way. Right...
Third Time's A Charm

Third Time’s A Charm

I am hands down in love with anyone who is fervently and genuinely passionate about something. Whether it be for video games at last week’s E3, or film buffs who have slaved for months or even years to show their film at the current LA Film Festival (myself included, for a film I worked on...
