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!
The spaghetti of our lives! My fave is served at Vince's in my hometown of Ontario, CA. Vince's is the world's largest spaghetti restaurant. Homespun and family run, since 1945. Talk about hometown pride! I've been enjoying the spaghetti dining experience there for as long as I can remember.CLICK FOR MORE!
