A few months ago the “SoCal Corgi Beach Day” group held their annual summer event in Long Beach. While not owning a Corgi myself I decided to go down to Long Beach and cover the event. What I didn’t realize is that the group decides to do the same event TWICE a year. This time the Fall portion of the event took place way down south of LA in Huntington Beach. So while most of you are handling the start of the cold spell in your region I will personally go to see some dogs frolics on the beach. So enjoy me “winning” with the highlights:
The neighborhood of Culver City is very proud of its own arts district. Driving down Washington Blvd you will see many galleries and studios showcasing today’s generation of artists. Once a year Culver City decides to highlight their arts district with an official “ArtWalk”. If you happened to be at Washington Blvd on October 8th (between Helms and La Cienega Blvd) then you could witness some truly fine pieces of art in Los Angeles.
I’ve been living in Culver City for about a year and a half now. It has been a great neighborhood to get my footing in Los Angeles and enjoy my new life out in the West Coast. I’ve had my share of adventures in Culver City but I did not realize it was gonna have its own, very special anniversary in 2016. About 100 years ago a man by the name of Harry Culver had his dreams come true with the formation of Culver City. Now, if you look at the history books he did this in 1917…which is NOT a hundred years. Irregardless of this “slight” oversight the town has decided to celebrated and I decided to go downtown Culver to see what all the hubbub would be. Continue reading
If there is one thing Los Angeles is known for it’s…Well “movies”. But another form of media the city loves to consume is comedy. Some of the country’s greatest comedians got their start here in LA and, in one form or another, gone on to great success. It was surprising to me that I have not gone to one of the more famous stand up venues in the city. Luckily that all changed when a certain podcast group in New York City came to town.
A little over a year ago I went to my first Dodgers game. (You can find the post here so I won’t bore you with another tour of the facilities.) Dodgers Stadium itself is pretty damn gorgeous and on this Saturday jaunt it was an absolutely perfect day to play baseball. But what makes a perfect day of baseball even better is to be with friends. So a few of my pals from Rowan University came together to what ended up being a fun day for all. Here are some highlights below:
If there is one thing you should know about me it is that I am not much of a drinker. I dabble in Hard Cider’s or Hard Soda’s, but overall alcohol and me do not get along. But we live in an age where loving beer is at an all time high or, more specifically, the love of CRAFTING beer is at an all time high. There are breweries all around this great country of ours but recently I decided to partake in a brewery down South LA.
You may have noticed that I haven’t updated my blog regularly the last couple of weeks. Well there is a reason for that and it is a good reason:
I got a new job!
I won’t get into specifics but now that I am with a new company I need to take some time to get into their system. Also, with a new job comes money and I must be honest in that money has been a little tight as of late. So going all around Los Angeles and anywhere else in the West side of the country is gonna have to be put on hold for a while. But don’t worry! You’ll still see some postings here or there until I get a handle on what my schedule is like. I know for a fact in August and September there is at least ONE event I’m going to and it can definitely change in the future.
Don’t be too upset if you miss any future content! If you go to any of the tabs up above you will see a bevy of content from the last 1 1/2 years. It has been a wild ride since moving out here in LA and things will only get crazier as time moves on. I want to thank everyone who has visited my blog regularly for this long and expect bigger things to come down the pipe!
