photog - John G.

This photo was taken on the sand at Santa Monica Beach during what we later learned was the largest pier concert this beach has seen. Ever. Thanks to Khalid’s blissful contemporary sounds, we lived to see one of the most beautiful once-in-a-lifetime moments together. To all the local SaMos - you need to get your beach blankets and go to a pier concert. To all the visitors find out if there’s any gigs happening during your stay at

Our favorite places to eat are Bare Burger (cuz it’s GF), Holy Guacamole, Blue Plate Taco, and Cha Cha Chicken (BYOB). We’re likely avoiding The Promenade but The Misfit is a cool vibe. If you’re “eating clean” stop in to eat at Flower Child or Sweet Green.

If you workout while on vacation, I strongly suggest a boxing class at Gloveworx, spinning at Soul Cycle, and yoga at YogaWorks or Sweat (heated). After that go to Exhale Spa for a massage. Actually I strongly suggest going to Exhale under any condition.
