This Week’s Edition {eat. shop. play. explore.}

We still can’t believe it’s 2015 already, let alone that we are now halfway through January! This week’s edition is all about what we are looking forward to in 2015.  We are really excited to dive into more of the 805 this year and to share what we learn and experience on our blog.  There is so much to do and see in our community and we can’t wait to bring that to you!  As always, we would love to hear from you on what some of your favorite local vacation spots, restaurants, shops, activities, etc are so that we can check them out too!

There are so many new restaurants, coffee shops, wineries, and bars that are opening in the 805 and this has got us really jazzed.  Yes– jazzed!  We definitely love to eat, especially new places that feature local ingredients and seasonal menus.

TIFA Gelateria - LL805 approved

Tifa Gelato is about to open a second location at the Shoppes at Westlake, which just gives us more reason to stop in for a quick treat after another completely unnecessary trip to Target.

We are especially excited for Ragmuffin Coffee Roasters opening in Newbury Park- handcrafted, pour over coffee made and started by two locals. Like most dreams, Ragmuffin started in a garage (by married couple, Shawn & Sarah Pritchett) and then used a Kickstarter to help in the funding. Now they’re only 8 days from the grand opening!

We also love our wine, and lucky for us the 805 has some amazing local wineries.  Last year Four Seasons Westlake Village opened their own wine Tasting Room and we always love visiting local wine spots like Sip and Malibu Wines.  We are also looking forward to trying Rosenthal Wine Bar and The Ranch at Solstice Canyon (Lunch, Dinner & now offering brunch!) in Malibu off PCH.

We also don’t discriminate when it comes to drinking, so we enjoy our fair share of beer as well.  This year we are looking forward to Enegren Brewering Company’s grand opening of their new brewery and tasting room (happening next weekend! yay!).  We will definitely be there, and you should be, too.  On that same note, Figueroa Mountain Brewery will also be opening it’s new brewery and tasting room soon at the Shoppes at Westlake Village, which is definitely cause for celebration.

We’re big fans of ConejoDeals – they always offer a plethora of great, local deals. We are frequently buying them- finding awesome fitness, restaurant and hair deals!


This weekend, Nicole and her husband are so excited to try out The Spa at The Four Seasons Westlake Village!  There is a recurring deal on Travelzoo that we’ve been dying to try.  Do you have a favorite local spa or pamper routine?

The beautiful & newly renovated Agoura Hills Rec Center on over 7 acres opened to the public this week! Check out the brochure for more info on classes, camps, activities community events and more. What better way to get involved in the community?!


Big Sky Montana Vacation - LocalLove805

Meanwhile, Hayley and Tanisha are at their family cabin in Big Sky, Montana!  The snowboarding/skiing season is upon us, so don’t forget to access our (somewhat) local mountains, like Bear Mountain, Mountain High, Mt. Baldy, June Lake and Mammoth. What’s your fave local mountain?

Having grown up in the 805, there are still a number of local cities and destinations that we haven’t had the chance to fully explore. Some on the top of our wish list are Los Olivos, Ojai, Pismo, Avila Beach and Downtown Ventura!

That’s a wrap for this week’s edition! Let us know what you’re up to by tagging @LocalLove805 and #LL805.
