Trip to Los Angeles

Last Saturday Tyler and I drove up to Los Angeles for the day. We started at the Norton Simon museum in Pasadena for his Art and World Religions classes, then spent the rest of the day shopping and eating! We parked at the Grove on Fairfax and walked up W. Third Street to find a cafe to eat at. We settled down at Doughboy's and we were not disappointed! There were so many options to choose from that it took us forever to pick. Tyler started with a Cafe au lait and ordered the Beefy Mac and Cheese, which was basically the best HaRemove Formatting from selectionmburger Helper you've ever had.

I got the spinach, goat cheese, and sun dried tomato pesto pizza which was delicious!

We then walked down Fairfax with full stomachs to Flight Club, a.k.a. Tyler's shoe heaven. It's an unmarked store that's wall-to-wall with the latest and rarest sneakers of every kind.

Tyler took some great pictures as always, showing how much we love Fairfax!

After shopping at the farmer's market, The Grove, Beverly Center, and Melrose, we went to the 8oz. Burger bar on Melrose to celebrate Tyler's 20th birthday. This place is AMAZING! The meat they use is all humanely raised and hormone-free, and they focus on using local and organic produce, always a plus! Here's my burger:

Fried mozzarella, house blend of sirloin, tri-tip, short rib, and chuck patty, house cured bacon, balsamic grilled red onions, and wild baby arugula. YUMMMMMM! Sweet potato chips w/ sea salt took my taste buds over the moon.
All in all, an amazing day. I love Los Angeles because we can always find something new and exciting there to do. Can't wait to go back!
