The Dime

The Dime is the ultimate Fairfax dive bar. Good drinks, friendly staff, a DJ playing old school hip hop, and a colorful group of locals willing to share a drink with you. Shanna and I stopped by, despite the rain, ordered whiskey-gingers and danced to Snoop. The photos on the walls portray perfect Los Angeles culture […]

Carrot Dogs from Fritzi Dog

There’s a restaurant inside The Farmer’s Market that has a interesting take on the veggie dog- using a singular veggie in place of meat. A giant carrot, grilled just like a normal hot dog, and served in a pretzel or original bun with different fix-ins from their veggie menu. I went to Fritzi Dog after […]

This little shop has every herb and flower you could hope to brew into water. Since YouTube star Kota is one of biggest girly girls I […]

He insisted we join him at Darkroom and I couldn’t say no. Darkroom is one of my favorite bars in L.A.; Friendly bartenders, cult classics playing on […]

The Kibitz Room

After Alexandria and I had dinner at Canter’s, we dipped next door to The Kibitz Room to grab a drink. I always like to try house cocktails so I picked the craziest one I saw on the menu- The Chocolate Martini. Alexandria is more Old Fashioned, and ordered just that. The bar was divey, with […]
