Chateau Marmont Los Angeles California
The A-list actress – fresh from a break-up – is lunching with a new beau at the next table. Within hours, photos (snapped from a bush over my left shoulder!) break the story on the Web. Just a day in the life of Chateau Marmont. Jean Harlow and Clark Gable carried on a torrid affair here (during Harlow’s honeymoon).
Hotel Casa Del Mar a California beach club
The Hotel Casa Del Mar is tucked into a discrete cul-de-sac, away from the boardwalk and embraced by Santa Monica Bay, lies the classic splendor that is Hotel Casa del Mar. Once an exclusive beach club in the 1920’s, the lobby’s original soaring ceiling and dramatic windows remain, overlooking the surf.
The sweet side of Los Angeles
In Los Angeles, there are many specialty shops for cakes, candies, and other sweet treats. Around town lines are often out the door for items such as gourmet ice cream sandwiches and unique twists on classic pastries. This might be surprising given the reputation the famed city has for fit and health-conscious locals. But let’s be honest: We Angelenos know how to indulge.
