Trend Rising Los Angeles French France Francophilia

This may seem obvious but it has to be said: Los Angeles loves France. The city and the country feel connected in a strange way, as if both have a similar headspace and unique approach to the world. If anything, we in California certainly look to cities like Paris as inspiration for what we can be. Why? Because the French way is a pretty great way of living. What does this mean?

Zinque West Hollywood Los Angeles 1

We’d been wanting to try the new West Hollywood Zinque for a long time. We had heard it was open and that they had a new oyster night—but we couldn’t quite get over to the place.

Los Angeles is a city full of billboards. Because our surroundings are a hybrid of highways and walkways, most of which is seen through a Hollywood lens, we’re constantly faced with advertising. This of course leads to visual bombardment and frequent assault by advertisers but, hey, this comes with the territory of our city. Can billboards change though? Especially on places like the Sunset Strip, where the billboards are iconic: how can they be innovated upon? Well, local firm Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects recently took a stab at this by creating a Dodger Blue slingshot to hold signage. It’s a simple, futuristic take on advertising.

Los Angeles River Day Trip 2

There are times when I want to get out of town, but the free time just ain’t there. On these occasions I look to a few tried and true spots, places that I know can provide me with a couple of sanity restoring hours, without taking up a whole day. For today’s respite, I’m setting out on a bike ride along the LA River.
