It's been a while since I've posted! Well, the past week or so have been a little crazy... but the long and short of it is that I've been working on a few new sites. Hopefully they'll be up soon.

On other interesting news, my brothers are turning 16 today! Their party over the weekend was actually snowed out in Oklahoma... Poor guys!

Back on the suggestions of what to in each of the places I've lived... let's get a few new ones out there that I've recently tried in L.A.:
1. The Second City - Wherever I'm living, I'm always a huge fan of SC. Currently, there's a cast doing their "313" show at the SC on Melrose that used to perform in Detroit when I lived there. I've always loved watching them, and they must be doing well in L.A. because I keep seeing them popping up on MTV and MadTV. With that, I'm going to go see them again on Saturday night... so looking forward to it!
2. The Disney Concert Hall - If you love music, you'll love this place. They have all sorts of concerts from one person playing folk music on the guitar to an entire sympony of classical musicians. I had the opportunity to visit the Disney Concert Hall last week for the second time and it was great. I saw a Grammy award winning violinist do his thing.
3. Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles - So... apparently this place is a must-try for most Angelinos. I was finally convinced to go recently and it wasn't bad. The waffles seem to have a lot of cinnamon in them (I'm convinced this is their secret ingrediant)... and the chicken is extra crispy. Personally, I do prefer the two for seperate meals, but they were still tasty. If I had to compare Roscoe's to a place, I think it would be like a combination of Raiford's in Memphis, Denny's, and KFC. For sure worth visiting though.
4. Diddy Reece - For $1, you cannot possibly turn down a homemade icecream sandwich - with the icecream and two cookies of your choice! At this UCLA land mark, my favorite is the butter pecan icecream and two snickerdoodle cookies. Just beware, there is a huge line that is usually wrapped out onto the sidewalk and down the street!

Well, I hope your week is going well... more to come from me soon!
