🦞 Jeff Goldblum is a regular at this restaurant...

Creatives coffee mixer, Malibu pier dinner, & collage club

👋 OH HEY 👋

Mads here! Hope everyone had an ideal LDW. I did a few fun things:

  • 🌳 Went to The Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens FOR. THE. FIRST. TIME. I knew it was gorgeous from photos, but come on. My inner child was healed there. Treat yourself to a visit.

  • 🕺 Had myself an Echo Park / Silver Lake GNO! We tried to go to Donna’s, but the wait was 2 hours (yikes), so we went to one of my favorite spots around the corner: The Lonely Oyster. Then, we checked out the oh-so-cool Fluffy McCloud’s, popped into El Cid, and then ended the night at The Friend (the best place to dance in the city IMO).

  • 🧘 On the other side of town, I spent Labor Day on the westside! A yoga class at Open (get a free class here!), a cuh-lassic brunch at Great White (shout-out to Cameron who works there and hooked me up with a table during rush hour), and then worked at Little Lunch with my fave Coco Cold Brew.

Okay, now on to the coolest things happening this week.

  • Silver Springs, West Hollywood 🧘 Apparently everyone is going to this pilates studio these days. I’m trying it out this week, so I’ll report back.

  • Little Joy, Echo Park 🍸 This cool kids cocktail bar is the sister business to The Lonely Oyster. I checked it out this weekend, and it was indeed cool. And they have a pool table.

  • Connie & Ted’s, West Hollywood 🦞 Okay I went to Connie & Ted’s for the first time the other night, and wow. They know their seafood sh*t over there. The lobster roll is a must. Oh, and Jeff Goldblum was there, and I fangirled HARD. Apparently he’s a regular, so…

  • Petit Trois, Sherman Oaks 🇫🇷 I finally made it to Petit Trois in the Valley this past weekend, and the weird-ass rainy weather was the perfect backdrop to this meal. I got french onion soup and a side of fries.
