Weekend Shenanigans
Friday night, I had dinner at Comme Ca's on Melrose in West Hollywood. We shared a bottle of wine and the Seafood Plateau (oysters, clams, mussels and shrimp). After dinner, we walked over to Sweet Lady Jane's and picked-up a piece of Black Forest and Red Velvet to go. Saturday, I had a pretty easy day of sleeping in, a morning soy chai latte at Fix Coffee in Echo Park, lunch at Lamill Coffee Boutique in Silver lake, a nap, and dinner with girlfriends. Sunday, I spent all day at the Shrine Auditorium for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Los Angeles

This afternoon, I was out scouting venues for an upcoming event, and I decided to swing by Revival one my favorite vintage furniture stores in LA. - If you're in the neighborhood, St. Vincent de Paul thrift-store is another one of my faves.
