Happy 2nd Blog-iversary to us!
We are so thankful that you have been faithfully following our journey through (and around) the 805 — which as far as we’re concerned, is the best-kept secret of Southern California, am I right?!
Don’t mind our moment of nostalgia, but here are five of our favorite events and happenings that we’ve taken part in over the past year! And now, in no particular order…
The Tasting Room at Four Seasons, Westlake Village hosted a fan-TASTIC wine + food pairing, featuring Syrah wines from four vineyards in Ballard Canyon.
Of course, Chef Jesse Hansen brought his A-Game, and we had so much fun mingling with the vintners and hearing their passion for wine.
We love a good play on words, a glass of wine, and a day all about relaxation — and when we heard about Unwine’d Wednesdays at THE SPA at Westlake Village Inn, we knew we had to try it out. Like ASAP.
Big hats, mint juleps, and betting on the ponies — just the tip of the iceberg of all the amazing things to experience at the newly-updated Santa Anita Racetracks! Worth the journey outside the 805, this is an outing that will please everyone!
Stay connected with their social media for fun events, like fashion contests, BBQ championships, beer festivals, and more!
4. Brunch + Bloodies
Where can you go for the most delicious brunch, have one-too-many mimosas, and then stay for the weekend at the most picturesque hotel? The Outpost at The Goodland Hotel, that’s where!
Don’t even get us started on their homemade Pop Tarts…
After this dinner, we all went home and dropped some MAJOR hints to our husbands to take us here for future date nights! We also learned some valuable lessons, like the fact that you can forage for food in our local mountains, and how much we love eating sea beans…
Thank you for indulging us 🙂 And, thanks so much for reaching out on social media with #LL805, sending us suggestions, and inviting us to find more gems in and around the 805! We are so lucky to live here, and are thankful for this incredible community!
xx, Your Team at LL805
