Friday Night in Silver Lake

Friday Night in Silver Lake I spent Friday night in Silver Lake, Los Angeles with my pals Sean, Thuan and Carl. God, we ate a lot of freakin' fries that night which, although sat on me for a few days after, definitely complemented the tart ciders and hoppy beers we drank in abundance throughout that evening. Every weekend in summer, the Silver Lake neighborhood puts on a Night Market that showcases a variety of eclectic vintage and hipster vendors. We spent nearly forever at Tod's Camera Stop that offers an incredible collection of Super 8 film cameras, repeater filters for…

The 626 Night Market

The 626 Night Market There are always lots to do on a Friday night in Los Angeles. Folks usually attend one of the many events happening in and around the city - like listening to live street buskers at the Santa Monica Pier, watching a live comedy show at Laugh House in Hollywood or eat freekishly good foods at the 626 Night Market, which is where I ended up with my friends one Friday night.

The Marciano Art Foundation is a former Masonic Temple

Yesterday, I toured the Marciano Art Foundation located at 4357 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles. I discovered it a few weeks ago while on my evening run. I wanted to check out the Wilshire neighborhood located a few blocks north from mine in Koreatown, because I had heard it was full of history. I am still discovering of what history it comprises, but, I was surely impressed when I came upon this 1961 Masonic Temple turned private art museum. The building is a massive white rectangle with more than 100,000 sq. ft.. It stands out as a piece of unusual architecture at…

A walking tour of DTLA

I love feeling like a tourist in my own city. I love that everyday provides a new discovery, a new level of appreciation for my big ass backyard, a new means of meeting interesting folks and most of all just feeling excited about all that this place has to offer; I’m telling you, it’s really endless. I also finally feel like I’m developing a well rounded perspective of Los Angeles, on account I’ve done some mainstream touristy things, like my walking tour of DTLA about which I’m writing in this post, and the time I explored the working-class neighborhoods of…

A History of LA’s Chinatown

Hello, Human. Glad to have you here. In this post I'm going to talk about my time exploring Chinatown, Los Angeles, but, first, I want to ramble about my recent thoughts. Lately, I’ve been thinking romantically about our humanity. How did we get here? For what are we meant? What is the meaning of life? I’m not asking these questions out of concern, mind you, but out of romance, curiosity and the love I have for my life. The idea that we have no idea; I mean, it seems strange, because I somehow can’t help but feel that we are…

A Sony Pictures Studios Tour

This post isn’t one of my typical posts with fancy photos or multimedia; this is a post with simple iPhone photos that I took while touring Sony Pictures in Culver City, California (Westside LA). Nonetheless, I had a pretty interesting time learning about its history and rumors and decided to share it with you, despite it not being on par with my typical presentation. Here goes. The tours are usually $50 a head, but my husband and I got a sweet hookup from a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend who works at Sony in distribution and,…

Barelas’ Sacred Heart Church

Hello! How’s it going? A lot has been going on in my corner of the world. Los Angeles was recently hit with a heatwave that lasted two days. Doing anything in that kind of temperature made me feel lethargic. Yes, some of you are thinking "honeymoon stage is over” - haha! Well, in a way, you’re right. Everything I’ve been told that would happen, is, indeed, happening; traffic, heatwaves, dry spells, the list goes on. But, none of it compares to all of the fantastic people and new experiences I’ve had in my new home. I’ll say it again -…
