Strung pennants blowing in the breeze, an Arden Ice Cream truck passing by and a Ford convertible parked at the curb provide a perfect backdrop for Los Angeles’ most playful architectural icon. The famous fast food stand is world class. There is no better place in the known universe to enjoy a hot dog.CLICK FOR MORE!

In the world of mid-century mod home décor, Modernica is a pillar of civilization. For the last 25-ish years, they have been manufacturing and handcrafting a wildly wide variety of no nonsense fabulous furnitureness. Most of it in SoCal, at their over the top facility in Vernon. And what a thrill it was to get a private tour of it.CLICK FOR MORE!
Everywhere I travel, I always ask, “What’s the local food here?” Seems every place has something edible they’re known for, and our beloved downtown LA is no exception.
Among the classic downtown foods we enjoy on my “Disneyland” tour of Downtown Los Angeles, delicious eggrolls at Hop Louis, since 1941, fantastic French Dip Sandwiches at Phillipe’s, since 1908, mouth-watering, fresh strawberry whipped cream cake from the Phoenix Bakery, since 1938, and tasty taquitos at Cielito Lindo, where they’ve been perfecting the recipe since 1934!
Welcome to the DAVID and GLADYS WRIGHT HOUSE in Scottsdale, AZ.
David’s daddy-O, Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the home for his son and daughter-in-law in 1952. It’s the new superstar in the galaxy of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterworks.
Thankfully, it was recently saved from the wrecking-ball (shocking, but true) and is currently being faithfully restored and readied for public tours, for the first time.
The Neon Boneyard is the heart and soul of Las Vegas.
To stroll thru this time-travel treasure trove of over-the-top, mostly mid-century, vintage Vegas signage and other extraordinary Sin City artifacts is like being transported to some sort of parallel universe, where you are thrilled to feel about 3 feet tall. The signs are way, way bigger than you thought, when you are standing right next to them.
The Latest Sweet Mess From The Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen Is Just In Time For Easter.
This Easter party agitator is a 4-layer, pastel-colored, rainbow cake sprinkled with tequila, filled with Peeps and smashed bits of chocolate Easter bunny. Then, it’s frosted and filled with chocolate fudge frosting, inside and out, and finished with foil wrapped chocolate eggs, malted milk ball eggs, jelly beans and skewered Peeps!
