Slaters 50/50: Most Eclectic Hamburgers You Will Ever Eat

Slater’s 50 / 50 has come highly recommended to me by at least half a dozen people.

Amoeba Music in Hollywood: LA’s Iconic Record Store

When it comes to record stores I am like a kid in a candy shop. I love to just browse the aisles and see what gems I can stumble on. For me Amoeba is the perfect place to do this. Amoeba Records has been able to do what many stores have tried unsuccessfully to do […]

1000 Steps Beach in Laguna Beach

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the plethora of beaches all within an hour drive from my house. There are beaches for surfing, camping, swimming and even shopping.

The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in Redlands

Like many others, I started this new year out with a diet; however, like all good diets, it had to eventually end. For me that end was Tuesday and the one thing I had been craving during the entire month of nothing but veggies was a nice slice of pizza. Enter The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in […]
