Weekend in LA - Santa Monica
We love LA! Mike is from LA, and it's a quick and easy flight for us! The city is vibrant and full of life, the sun is always shining, the food is incredible, the beach is a definite plus, and it's just one of our favorite places. That said, we did a quick get-away weekend for Mike's birthday!
We stayed at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica and decided to really relax and enjoy the beach, hotel, and the Santa Monica area. We rented complimentary bikes from the hotel and biked along the beach to Malibu in perfect weather. We walked the beach and did some shopping (I discovered these amazing Beyond Yoga Spacedye pants that I basically want to live in.)
We got a super neat reservation at Nozawa Bar at Sugarfish - a private, 10-seat omakase bar with amazing 20-course sushi plates, and an "encore", choose your favorites to try again at the end for Mike's Birthday Dinner! Happy 28th! We also checked out Tar and Roses, and Coast, 1 Pico, and The Living Room at Shutters.
