After a long work week, this past Friday my friend Ana and I decided to do Happy Hour at Larsen's Grill at The Collection Riverpark in Oxnard. People are literally waiting outside of the restaurant 30 minutes prior to opening at 5 p.m., so I knew this would be a fun place to be at! [...]

Hot Spot: Cafe Nouveau

I absolutely love going to Cafe Nouveau for breakfast on a weekend, it is seriously one of the best breakfast spots in Ventura! The restaurant is hosted in a 1920s Spanish bungalow and even has an outdoor patio in a Mediterranean setting. It's so gorgeous, it's a must place to dine at! The restaurant does get [...]

Hot Spot: Lure Fish House

When my parents were in town a couple weeks ago, I wanted (ok, needed) to take them to Lure Fish House in Ventura for dinner. I absolutely adore coming here for their drinks and fresh seafood. The place is always packed, no matter what hour it is. It's that popular and the staff is always [...]

Know Your SoCal Cities and Explore

I have a question for born and raised Southern California residents that I just cannot figure out since I came here 7 years ago: Why don't you know where cities are in the region? I'm not saying you are all like this, but I feel like a majority of the people I talk to don't [...]

The Never Ending SoCal Jury Summons

I was recently summoned for jury duty. Again. This is my 4th year I have received a summons since I registered in the state in 2012. Yup, I am one of the lucky ones. After a 1 year period from the date you are summoned, you can possibly get called again. However, I have never served on [...]
