Doughboys Cafe & Bakery

10 Oct

Ventured out of Santa Monica today. Yep. All the way to West Hollywood! Breakfast’d at Doughboys Cafe & Bakery. Pretty tasty. There was a bit of a wait but it was worth it. Somehow ended up with the best seat in the house. The portions are comical… absolutely enormous+ I noticed just about everyone finished their meal with a baked good of some kind. Apparently the Red Velvet cake is the best around. Might be worth making a second visit…




PBR Art | Los Angeles Beer Fest 2010

11 Apr

The Verdict? A Success!

Yesterday’s LA Beer Fest was preeeetty fantastic. Went off without a hitch… aside from some mismanagement prior to getting into the venue. I.E: complete chaos waiting in ‘line’ to get our wrist-bands and 4 oz sampler mugs- you literally could have just said anyone’s name and been given a wristband, they weren’t even checking IDs…

Once inside Sony Studios, however, it was immediately apparent that everything was going to be alriiiight. Tons of people, food trucks, and beer vendors ready to pour!

Oh- and most importantly, I am now the proud owner of some awesome PBR Art. The PBR tent was handing out some great swag including posters with various PBR art prints.

Right onnn.

Blackboard Eats | Los Angeles

This week’s deal on BlackBoard Eats reminded me how awesome this site is. Weekly emails with really great deals at some really great restaurants around Los Angeles. This week, they’re offering a free wine flight at City Sip LA, a great little wine bar in Echo Park. Last week I took advantage of 30% off my lunch at french bistro, Church & State, in DTLA.
