From my earlier blogs you may know that the first weekend in August was spent with the Immortal Marilyn fan club, as we honored the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death. I wasn’t able to attend every event due to my work schedule; one that I was disappointed to miss was a visit to the…

I’m not sure who comes up with these ideas, there seems to be a “day” or “month” for everything! In past blogs I’ve mentioned some of my favorite hot dog places with Carneys being at the top…

Whip it in WeHo

The first day of summer brought me to Whipp’d LA on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood. My Living Social voucher was about to expire and it would have been a shame not to use it. So I treated myself to a pineapple Dole Whip float which was: a base of fresh pineapple juice, with…

Summer Time Treats

It’s the first day of summer, hooray! Of course for me, the food lover, the arrival of summer means enjoying (more of) certain types of food.
