Southern Cali Fiesta (pt.1)
Yes, the time had come for the annual Deb (my most awesome sister-in-law) + her best friend, Canmore Karen girls’ weekend. Sans les enfants. That’s French for, “ain’t no kids included”. Where did they choose this year for their destination?! Los Angeles!!!! Woooot for me!!!! I love sharing the city I love to people who appreciate it!!!!
Yaaaaay!!!! The Canadian Mommy Tribe have arrived!!!! Karen to my right, Deb to my left. Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade behind us.
Jeff took a candid photo of the three of us watching the sunset from the front of their hotel, The Shore (ocean view, y’all!). Look how beautiful the sun deprived ladies look with the sunset lighting up their delighted, joyful + naturally gorgeous faces.
Yummy, velvety oysters for appies (Canadian for appetizers) at The Coast.
Food was over rated at The Coast, but go for the oysters at happy hour!!!!
After dinner, we stopped by Chez Jay for a drink, then made our way to Zanzibar for drinks + dancin’. No details need be revealed!!!! Kid Free Weekend, that’s all I need to say!!! The next day, a quick stop at The Eames House.
Of course, next is the mandatory jaunt to The Eames Office on Pico. Karen is a tall, cool glass of water for sure!!! And tan! And crazy stylish!!!! Don’t hate!!!
We had lunch at the hyped up, Gjelina. There was a wait, so I took the opportunity to style Jeff for a mini photo shoot.
Food was good, if not a bit salty. But their service was top notch!!!! A +++!!!!
El Cholo, on Wilshire for dinner. I’ve been eating there for years. I warned everyone about how strong the margaritas are at this beloved Mexican joint. This is how strong they are:
They are no joke, y’all!!!! Karen’s face says it all!!! Beware! Take care!!! There are still more adventures to be had, so stay tuned later in the week for more Southern California fun!!!!
