The Diablo Made Me Do It

The TV Guide

After my EPIC 15 mile run on Saturday I vowed that my Sunday yesterday was going to be really low key. I spent the early part of my day working and the majority of my afternoon reading. Yesterday evening, tho, I met up with Emma and Josh at a new eater in Silverlake called Diablo Taco primarily because of the novel way they make micheladas. I had no doubt that the michelada drinks would be amazing but I was unprepared for how FANTASTIC the food would be. Long story short, we stayed at Diablo from about 5 until 9:30 and we ate almost everything on the menu. Trust me, it was an amazing Sunday evening/night. More »

Search & Discover

The TV Guide

Last night I got to spend some great quality time with my BFFs Emma and Josh. The happily marrieds live in Manhattan Beach, CA (which is, like, 45 years away from LA) so I haven’t been able to see them much lately. This week, tho, they are housesitting here in LA so their proximity makes hang sessions more available. We met up for a quick bite to eat at Food and then went to the Landmark Theater to see a documentary film titled Searching For Sugar Man (which, I have to say, is an AMAZING film … review forthcoming). We had an absolute blast! More »

Head For The Hills

The TV Guide

Yesterday was, for me, a very fun day with friends. I got to enjoy a fun brunch with new friends Tom and Ben and then I got to enjoy a totally chill (if extremely hot) pool party with Ollie and her friends in the Hills of Hollywood. Now, keep in mind, I like to stay out of the heat as much as possible when it gets scorching out but a nice day with my peeps was exactly what I needed. More »

Theater Review: ‘Streep Tease’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Darion, Loy, Sebastian and some of their friends for a night of theater, laughter and merriment in Hollywood and I am pleased to report that we enjoyed a very full night of the aforementioned. Darion suggested that we see a production titled Streep Tease, which is a show that features monologues from Meryl Streep films all performed by men. Obvs, I was very interested in seeing this brilliant show. Afterward, we made our way to St. Felix in Hollywood for some aftershow food and drink. Read on to hear what I think of Streep Tease.

Speedo Shopping With Besties

The TV Guide

Last night Darion invited some of us to go shopping with him to help him pick out outfits for an upcoming cruise that he is taking. Now, this wasn’t your usual shopping trip for clothes … he was in need of bathing suit apparel and, apparently, the smaller the better. Sebastian, Loy and I met up with him on his shopping excursion last night and shopping led to dinner which led to late night drinks — on a Wednesday night! I know, shocking! Click below to see some fun photos from last night. More »

BBQ With Gen

The TV Guide

Last night, after far too many delays, David and I finally got to spend some time with our good friend Genevieve. She and I have been talking about getting together for months now and, for various reasons, we haven’t been able to get it together. We committed ourselves to hanging out last night and SUCCESS, we had an amazing time together. I mean, it’s impossible not to have fun when Gen is around so, yeah, mission: accomplished. More »

Freestylin’

The TV Guide

In the fairly long history of epic concert events that I have attended in my life, I struggle to remember a night that was quite as epic as last night was for my friend Ollie and me. Last night, we attended the 8th annual Freestyle Festival at QC’s 2020 in Montebello, CA. What we got was a night of unbridled fun that we were hoping to experience. There were many things about last night’s concert that made me worry that the night would be a bust. Despite the amazing line-up of performers, the concert was held inside a banquet hall on a golf course. The entire concert venue was prolly the size of the venue when you had your senior prom. I am happy to report that not only was the venue adequate but it turned out to be THE perfect place for an amazing throwback event like this to take place. Click below to see some photos and watch VIDEO from the show last night. You must experience some of the fun that Ollie and I got to experience live last night. More »

Wizards & Cheerleaders

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last full day here in NYC this trip and it was a bizzy one. I decided to see 2 Broadway shows yesterday since I wouldn’t have time to see a show today (I fly back to LA early this afternoon). For my matinee show, I saw Potted Potter — a 2 man show that delivers all 7 Harry Potter books (and a full game of Quidditch) in 70 mins. For my evening show, I saw Bring It On: The Musical — a musical that revolves around the cut throat world of competitive cheerleading. Late last night, I got to enjoy a lovely dinner date with my friend Kanani … the perfect way to end a fun trip. More »

‘Sleep’ Walking With Shakespeare . . . And Shannon

The TV Guide

Last night was fun, y’all. It was my first official hang session with our amazing PITNB writer Shannon and we had an absolute blast. This trip is my first chance to hang out with Shannon socially so I tried to make sure we had a fun night. I took Shannon to see the amazing immersive theater production Sleep No More (it was my 8th visit) after a quick dinner date at El Centro for margaritas and Mexican food. A magical night was had, I can assure you. Click below to see some fun photos. More »

Coney Island Getaway

The TV Guide

So, yesterday was prolly one of the funnest days I’ve ever had EVER here in NY. My good friend Halli suggested that we spend some time at Coney Island since I’ve never been there before and I jumped at the chance to take her up on the offer. I can’t imagine any scenario where David would ever want to visit Coney Island (actually, when we’re here, he never wants to leave Manhattan) so off Halli and I went. We had A BLAST! We ate Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, we rode all of the rides (more than once), strolled on the boardwalk, ate lots of candy, took lots of photos … it was just fun fun fun! Check out some of the photos I snapped yesterday. More »
