Catching Up With An Old Friend

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way out to Book Soup in West Hollywood to catch up with an old friend … who just so happened to be hosting a book reading and booksigning on her birthday. Actress/author Amber Benson and I go back a few years but it has been a long time since we’ve been able to hang out. We keep in touch via social media but I’m embarrassed to say that it’s been years since we’ve seen one another (I might have been blonde the last time I saw her). When I found out that she was doing a booksigning, I knew I had to head out to see and support her … which I did last night. More »

Día De Reyes

The TV Guide

Altho I just spent a really fun day with friends at Disneyland on Sunday, I had to return to the theme park yesterday to partake in the annual Dia de Reyes celebration that they do for guests because I’ve never experienced the celebration before in my life. Growing up in the Midwest, I missed out on a lot of culturally Mexican celebrations that I am now exposed to living here in Southern California. For some time now, I’ve heard about Dia de Reyes but I’ve never partaken in any of the celebrations before. I figure if Disneyland throws a party for the holiday, it might be worth checking out. I met up with my friend Elena at the park last night so that we could attend the parade/party together and we ended up having a blast together. More »

Birthday Drinks With Jeremy

The TV Guide

Last night was mostly a quiet night for me. I had intended on staying in the whole night but because my friend Jeremy wanted to get the jumpstart on celebrating his birthday with a get together on the night before his birthday, I decided to get out of the house so that I could celebrate with him. Jeremy is Tamar’s younger brother and he’s really a great guy. Tam’s family are all so special to me that it is always a pleasure to spend time with them in any capacity for any reason. Jeremy invited a group of friends to meet up with him at The Daily Pint in Santa Monica so that’s where we went to get the party started. More »

The First Visit Of 2015

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another trademark Sunday Funday for me and my friends in Anaheim — my first of the new year. Altho some of the more eager friends of mine have already been to Disney one or more times since January 1, yesterday was my first opportunity to get down to the theme parks for some fun. As I mentioned yesterday, Saturday was the one year anniversary of the founding of my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin so it was nice to be the parks with my friends kicking off our second year of existence. Needless today, we had a blast … as we tend do on any given Sunday. More »

The Sons Of Anakin Social Club Turns 1 Year Old

The TV Guide

Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of the official founding of he Disneyland social club that I belong to, Sons of Anakin. Altho the idea for the club was conceived by our founders Eddy and Andreas before the anniversary date yesterday, January 3 was the day that SOA made their first appearance in the Disneyland parks with vests and all. To celebrate the occasion, the members of the group who are in town right now got together at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA for a little anniversary fete. There was a lot of boozin’ and laughing and, naturally, too much fun. More »

Movie Review: ‘Big Eyes’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Courtney and Darion at Century City for a dinner/movie/hang sesh and we had a blast together. After we fought of the hordes of people in the very popular food court, we were able to all get caught up with one another since the three of us hadn’t hung out since October. Obvs I love Courtney and Darion individually but when the 3 of us get together, we have the best time ever. After we supped, we made our way over to the AMC Theater to see the Tim Burton film Big Eyes. I’ve been hearing really great things about the movie and I am so happy to relay that all the good things that people are saying are true! The movie is, IMHO, one of Tim Burton‘s best films in years.

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

The TV Guide

Welp, another year has come and gone. Last night I met up with Tamar at her place for a sweet hang before we met up with her friends Danielle and Andrea and then we all made our way to their friend Dane’s place for one last hurrah before the new year. While we had a lot of fun, I have to tell you … we were also kind of miserable all night long. The temps have been really cold all week long and last night was downright freezing. Try as we may to have fun at the party, we were all so cold that it really wasn’t the best time ever. To keep warm, I practically stood in the fire pit and drank as much whisky as possible to warm up my insides. Which means, obvs, that I’m not feeling so great today either. OY! More »

Movie Review: ‘Unbroken’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really great day. I got to spend time with my friends Monique and Jay, who introduced me to their adorable baby boy Teddy, in the afternoon and then I met up with Adriana for dinner and a movie last night. We saw Unbroken and while I knew the movie was going to be good, I wasn’t really prepared for how good it truly is. Adriana and I had a very nice time together last night and, well, it was a pretty great Tuesday all around, if I do say so myself. More »

Hustle Roses To Close Out 2014

The TV Guide

Last night I attended my last concert for 2014 and I’m so happy that it was a show by my beloved Hustle Roses. Hustle Roses (aka my friend Ollie) has been playing a string of shows at Ham & Eggs Tavern over the past few months and because her shows did so well, she was asked by the band Kissing Cousins to open for them at The Satellite last night. Hustle Roses performed a few of her greatest hits and also played new stuff from her upcoming new EP battleplanning. which will be released in early 2015. Her performance last night was quite excellent. After a string of great shows, last night’s performance was her best yet. More »

The Last Sunday Funday Of 2014

The TV Guide

Yesterday was the last Sunday of 2014 and, therefore, it was the last Sunday that I was able to spend with my friends at Disneyland. This year, as you are well aware, was the year that my Disneyland attendance number went WAY UP after I joined the Sons of Anakin social club. Since May, I’ve spent almost every Sunday with my friends at Dland and I had the time of my life. Altho some of our members are off on vacation or couldn’t make it to the parks yesterday, a nice core group of us got together to spend one last day of 2014 going on rides, playing in the snow and generally having as much fun as possible. It was another great Sunday Funday for the record books. More »
