Ice Skating and Other Wintry Delights in Santa Monica

November 22, 2013

SANTA MONICA, US – Los Angeles has been experiencing a cold snap this week (yes, that means it’s gotten down to the brisk 60s!), but certainly the city can’t claim much of a “real” winter. The lack of snow and ice, however, doesn’t stand in the way of Angelenos seeking… (more)

LOS ANGELES, USA — So you’ve got a weekend to spend in Los Angeles, but you’ve so “been there, done that” as far as seeing all the big Hollywood film landmarks. Perhaps you’d like another angle on this entertainment juggernaut? Then get ready to rock ‘n’ roll. A music industry… (more)

Ditching the young and the restless at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills

December 10, 2012

BEVERLY HILLS, USA – 40 may be the new 30, but in Tinseltown, youth still reigns supreme. Ageism is rampant in casting calls, and Young Hollywood just seems to get younger and younger as years pass. On the nightlife scene, one is often hard pressed to find a decent spot… (more)

SANTA MONICA, USA – Los Angeles prides itself on being dubbed “The Southland,” and to get any further south than its wide metropolitan radius (which seems to sweep Orange County and San Diego into its orbit too), you’d practically have to skip the border into Tijuana. But at South, a… (more)

Take a chill pill, Malibu style, at Moonshadows

October 1, 2012

MALIBU, USA – It’s hard to find a word that adequately captures the vibe of utter relaxation that pervades the Malibu dining/nightlife spot Moonshadows. First off, you’re in California, and secondly, you’re right on the waterfront of one of the state’s most beautiful sunny beaches, so laidback doesn’t even begin… (more)

LOS ANGELES, CA – Among Hollywood’s leading men, there are the pretty boys (no matter how hard he tries, Brad Pitt will never be gritty) and the quirky character actors (sorry, Jim Carrey, you’ll never be a heartthrob). Few strike the balance between hotness and believable eccentricity. The same might… (more)

WEST HOLLYWOOD, USA – The Formosa Café represents a lot of things in Los Angeles that no longer exist. For starters, it’s housed in a former trolley car (and LA’s legendary traffic is a testament to the fact that the trolley cars stopped running long ago). Its location near the… (more)

LOS ANGELES, USA – There’s a well-known rumor that the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, a re-done relic of 1920′s Tinseltown glamour, is haunted by Old Hollywood ghosts.

Seafarers meet starlets at the HMS Bounty

August 22, 2011

LOS ANGELES, US – Hollywood has long had a romance with tales on the sea, especially the kind that intertwine love and disaster (Titanic, anyone?). In Hollywood’s imagination, the ocean’s expanse is like the “Wild West,” uncharted territory where anything is possible and the rules on land don’t necessarily apply.… (more)
