Beverly Hills - A Different Take on LA

April 16, 2018

0 Comments


When I lived in San Diego, I would sometimes venture up to Los Angeles. Of course, it was always an adventure due to the traffic - no matter if we left late in the evening or early on a Sunday morning. In turn, my view of LA was that of a city so spread out that you needed a car and almost needed to commit to a neighborhood and stay there.

Recently, I got to spend some time in Beverly Hills. This time, I did not have a car and decided I would only Uber when needed to. This meant I was walking to get my morning coffee or walking to meetings or whenever time would allow me to walk to my destination.

The beauty of this was the ability to soak in a part of LA that I may had otherwise quickly by-passed. My favorite areas in LA are those by the ocean, including Santa Monica and Malibu.

Of course, walking also allowed me to soak in my surroundings, and it probably helped that when I was there, they were having unusually "cold" weather and was after a recent rain spell. That meant I had great weather and was was surrounded by lush green landscape.

In light of this trip, I wanted to share some highlights:

Aharon Coffee - this coffee house was started by Aharon Vaknin who is passionate about coffee, and it shows as soon as you meet him. They roast their beans in-house, and he advised I try a Hazelnut Iced Latte - it was delicious! They also roast their own hazelnuts, which they use for the lattes, and they make their own almond/hazelnut milk. Yum!

Momed - this restaurant is a must, as it seems to satisfy all palettes. To start, get the Momed Plate and be sure to include the avocado hummus. You can't go wrong with the salads or wraps and save room for dessert.

Take a Walk - from either of the above destinations, take a stroll down Rodeo Drive or Wilshire Blvd.. Take in the sites of the shops and get your Pretty Woman moment on. And, take a peek inside of the amazing hotels in the area, including The Beverly Hills Hotel.

Enjoy the walk, the palm trees, the homes and a different take on LA.

Living Way “Below” One’s Income

February 20, 2020

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.

The Museum of Modern Art: A $450 Million Upgrade

February 12, 2020 1 Comment

On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.

The Movie: Downton Abbey

February 05, 2020

On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”
