Pinks Hotdogs in Hollywood

We often talk about the many must-try restaurants in Los Angeles for foodies.  Of course this includes comfort food.  Always on the list, look into In N Out Burger, See’s Candies, Sprinkles Cupcakes, John Kelly Chocolates, and Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles. Since 1939, one of the most popular spots is Pinks Hotdogs in Hollywood. What started off as a tiny push cart, has grown into an institution near the corner of La Brea and Melrose.  Hotdogs back in the day were sold for 10 cents, and a coke was half of that.  Now hotdogs average about $5.  Currently, Pink’s sells over 2000 hotdogs a day. When at Pink’s, enjoy their wall of fame, which includes 100’s of famous actors

Visiting West Hollywood

Everyone has heard of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, but few people realize just how much is happening in West Hollywood.  We often say that Los Angeles is built with many cities within a city, and the City of West Hollywood is truly one of the many gems. Incorporated as its own city in 1984, West Hollywood, or WEHO, is known as “the creative city,” and is loaded with some of the most famous landmarks and restaurants in all of L.A.  Some of the most well-known streets in the area travel through the city, and they include Santa Monica Blvd, Melrose Avenue, Robertson, and of course, the world-famous Sunset Strip.  The city is bordered by the City of Beverly Hills on

Arrive Hotel Palm Springs

The tagline for Arrive Hotel Palm Springs is, “A Neighborhood Hotel.” It’s so true.  We’ve done a post on Arrive before, but wanted to update a new one.  First off, it’s one of our favorite getaways, and they’ve had some recent updates to their venue. The desert community of Palm Springs is about a 2-hour drive from the general Hollywood or Beverly Hills area. It’s always been the perfect weekend trip or 2nd home for celebrities escaping the city-life of Los Angeles.  So much so, that there’s even celebrity homes tours there, much like we’ve got here in Beverly Hills with Glitterati Tours. When we can, we head to Arrive Hotel Palm Springs for some much needed R & R.  Even if
