The [hand]Writing’s On The Wall {Brown & Co. Designs}

As avid DIY-ers, we have been loooving the new emergence of local artisans offering workshops on how to get crafty + creative in their own specialty.

One such artisan, Heather Brown from Brown & Co. Designs, has been offering brush lettering workshops that seem to sell out within hours of announcing a new one!

Lucky for us, we snagged two seats at her latest one, held at MadeWest Brewery in Ventura.  Even on a Tuesday night, this workshop …

Why yes… YES we did.

The Club Everyone’s Been Waiting For {& how you can JOIN NOW}

True story: 98{fd7f0a6624fbd2224f3c60e3404acbd2207eb416c38268e7e97265ebe361b912} of the time I buy wine, I look for the prettiest label.

Sure, I’d love to actually know what I’m buying, where it’s from, and hey, if I’d actually even like how it tastes.  But, as I peruse the wine aisle for the 437th time, I can’t help but go back to my old habits.

But, what if — just what if — there was a wine club that only sourced local wines from the Santa Barbara/Paso Robles area, delivered specialty-curated shipments directly to your door, promising ultra-premium, limited-production wines that you can’t find in grocery stores, at the lowest winery-direct pricing, that also …

ESPN LA: The Jeff Fisher Show {Westlake Village Inn}

Guess who’s back… The Los Angeles Rams!!

For people that are clueless when it comes to football (liiiike myself…), LA has an NFL team for the first time since 1994.  Why should you care?  Because their practice fields and facilities are in our own backyard, at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks!

This means more than just catching glimpses of NFL players at your local Trader Joe’s.  With the move of the Rams comes some fun events — case in point, ESPN LA’s radio show, The Jeff Fisher Show, which broadcasts from the Westlake Village Inn every Monday during football season!

Oysters + Martinis = the Happiest of Hours {The Gallery Restaurant, Westlake}

Most of the time, happy hour means cheap, fried food and a decent bottle of domestic beer — you leave feeling somewhat satisfied, but mostly a little tipsy and a lot bloated. This is definitely not the case at The Gallery Restaurant, located at The Shoppes at Westlake. The Gallery is a casual, yet elegant restaurant that boasts specialty cocktails and a gourmet menu which will leave you feeling more than content.The Gallery Restaurant - Westlake - Shoppes at Westlake - bar - happy hour - LocalLove805 The Gallery Restaurant …

A Budget-Friendly Romantic Date Night in Malibu Canyon {it does exist}

I know, I know — Saddle Peak Lodge is hardly aligning with our mission statement of “ballin’ on a budget” …or is it, actually?

IMG_9009IMG_9009

This is a place that I’ve always wanted to go [once my “money tree” started bearing fruit].  But, good news, guys — they’ve got HAPPY HOUR and a Supper Special!

Last year, Brett + I decided to have a late Valentine’s Day celebration.  We made resos on Open Table for 5pm, so we could make sure not to miss the sunset.  We both …
