Three day weekend, also spells family time. We went to the coolest Downtown LA spot, Bottega Louie. With its open airy feel you can see all three separate kitchens--one for pizza, pastries, and meats. Yum! Yes all 3 Kitchens were put to the test. On the third day and In this heat, pilling up your bike in your car and heading to the closest pier--like the Santa Monica Pier (which just turned 100 this week) is a must, just like having a hot dog on a stick!
To put a bow on a dreamy weekend, we visited "El Padrino" aka my boys Godfather and celebrated by having dinner at Bandera in Brentwood. Their Tuna Poke, out of this world! Got distracted by the monkeying around of the three rowdy boys--picture include :)
