Weekend Shenanigans – LA Adventuring

Why hello there! I have missed you my friends. It was another busy weekend with my college friend Brittan and her sister Megan. One thing that I love about Brittan is that she never tires. She is always going, going, going. Now I understand how she ran a half marathon with only training 3 miles beforehand. We both are shopaholics and the weekend started with Pre-Black Friday shopping down in San Diego.  We scored some awesome deals at the Carlsbad outlets.

Love my new Kate Spade!

I have lived in Los Angeles for almost 5 years, but I have yet to explore the nightlife here. In a effort to see what LA is all about, Brittan and I went to The Edison, which is a very cool jazzy roaring 20s lounge in downtown. They have the most amazing snacks too. We munched on mac and cheese and fries. Not very healthy but delicious! The Edison didn’t disappoint with a beautiful aerial performance.

We also tried out a few clubs in LA but weren’t satisfied. People don’t dance as much in LA as they do in Vegas. However, Brittan and I did discovered that GU Energy gives the perfect boost while dancing the night away.

I know you love the awesome blue glow I have got going on in this picture above.

The rest of the weekend Brittan and I spent exploring Westwood and West Hollywood. Both areas are beautiful but we especially loved West Hollywood. It’s a manicured neighborhood and the locals are the friendliest!

We stopped to eat at Tender Greens and Urth Caffe. I was happy to discover that both of which have locations in Pasadena. Score!image

After a very late lunch (more like dinner) the sun was starting to set, so we drove up Sunset Blvd to take pictures of the sun setting among the mansions. We parked along the steep winding road and then sprinted up the hill after we were done with pictures.

After the sun set, we went to The Grove for some more shopping. We were so impressed with the holiday decorations. They even had fake snow!

After shopping, we sprinted up 8 flights of stairs back to the parked car. Brittan has a way of making me do sprints!

Question(s): Do you enjoy Black Friday shopping? What do you think about Pre-Black Friday shopping?

    • I should have talked to you before we went out. Oh well… now we know what to expect. The Edison and Wellesbourne were both really cool though!

  1. LA is one of those places that I have yet to visit; although, I’ve been dying to go there. I have a few friends and a cousin who live out there. It sounds like such a blast! I didn’t buy anything on Black Friday or the entire weekend for that matter. Justin was certainly happy about that; although, he doesn’t know it yet, but my mom and I are going shopping this coming weekend! ;-)
