CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’

It’s been a few weeks since my trip out west, and I’m still day dreaming about sunny beach days and amazing meals. The trip consisted of a week in Vegas for work followed by two days in San Diego and four days in LA. I was lucky enough to have great friends in both places to put me up and show me around town.
The Vegas leg of the trip was spent mostly inside a convention center , and the Bellagio was by far the highlight.

That Thursday morning I took a 7am flight out-of-town and headed to San Diego. We started with brunch at Snooze, followed by a morning hike at Torrey Pines with beautiful views ,
had amazing tacos at Oscars, and did a little sightseeing around San Diego.

Friday was spent on a cliff side beach with pups running around having the time of their lives ( and me starting to miss my fur ball).The ocean there had a much stronger pull than what I’m used to on the east coast, and  I was also nerding out on the seaweed.

Saturday morning we made the short drive to LA and started the day off with drinks and ping-pong at The Standard. That night we went to The Line Hotel to browse the Poketo store, have drinks at The Commissary and dinner at Roy Choi’s POT. Three spots I would definitely recommend hitting up if you are in LA.

Sunday we spent the day at Venice Beach and enjoyed a beautiful lunch at Gjelina . Their pizza’s were unique and ridiculously good. They now haunt me and make me sad when I realize just how far away they are from my belly…
