Free Summer Concerts at the Pier

Each summer, Snapchat hosts a series of concerts on the Santa Monica Pier each Thursday.  The best part? The event is completely free to all, and if you don’t make it early enough to enter the venue you can always hear it from the rest of the pier or the beach.  The first concert took …

Larchmont Village: A Quaint Oasis in a Big City

Larchmont Village: A Quaint Oasis in a Big City

My favorite neighborhood in Los Angeles doesn’t exactly fit the “LA neighborhood” stereotype you probably have in your head if you haven’t lived here or barely visited.  Larchmont Village, located in Windsor Square between 3rd and Beverly on Larchmont Blvd., is a small but very cute street full of a plethora of shops and cafes, …

A Nature Oasis in the Middle of Hollywood?

While browsing the Los Angeles sub of Reddit one day I came across a picture that basically blew my mind.  It was of a beautiful lake in Hollywood that I had literally no idea existed.  I read the comments, many of which were also of stunned residents who had never heard of it either.  I …

Date Night under $20? I’m in!

Date Night under $20? I’m in!

These days it’s hard to find a movie theatre playing current movies for under 15 dollars or so.  That being said, they do exist if you do some digging and are willing to go outside your neighborhood.
