Saddlerock Ranch and Malibu Wines

Saddlerock Ranch: The Malibu Wine Hike and Safari             Nestled in the hills of Malibu, just off of the canyon roads that will lead you west to the shoreline, is a beautiful property known as Saddlerock Ranch. The residence is home to a vineyard known as Malibu Wines. Built in the 70’s by Ron Semler, a man who made his family fortune in military communication, the sprawling vineyard and farmland is open to the public for dinners, hikes, and even an exotic animal safaris.             Recently, I had the privilege of visiting the property for a wine-tasting hike, with my girlfriend who had previously worked for the ranch in their animal care program— maintaining and training all of the animals

Los Angeles to Catalina Island

Catalina Island             Los Angeles is a city filled with world-renowned landmarks and hidden gems alike. In fact, as a five year resident of this enormous city, I’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to exploring all that it has to offer. While you could easily spend a lifetime experiencing the sights and sounds inside the city limits, there is one destination twenty-two miles off the coast of Southern California that is worth an experience all its own.             Santa Catalina Island, known as “Catalina” colloquially, is a seventy-five square mile island that features a combination of outdoor exploration activities, and resort style accommodations.  To the non-native, Catalina may ring a bell from the 2008 comedy film Stepbrothers, in

Looking for a Private Tour Company in Los Angeles?

Looking for a private tour company in Los Angeles? With the holidays over, and most locals back in town and back to work, there’s a few more cars on the streets, but famous landmarks are less-crowded.  January and February tend to be the slower tourism months in Los Angeles, before it all starts up again with Spring Break. This allows visitors a more relaxed environment when sightseeing, dining, and shopping.  We’ll start to see a staggered flow of increased business beginning the first few weeks in March, through the end of April. If you’re coming to Los Angeles for the first time, or never really had the opportunity to explore the area, let Glitterati Tours provide a first-class private sightseeing

Rose Bowl Welcomes Oregon and Wisconsin

Rose Bowl Welcomes Oregon and Wisconsin! On Wednesday, January 1st, the Oregon Ducks take on the Wisconsin Badgers at the 90K+ seat Rose Bowl in Pasadena.  Pre-game activities, including tailgating, start at 1PM. Of course this game takes place after the 131st Rose Parade takes their 5 ½ mile journey down Colorado Boulevard.  As always, look for marching bands, amazing floral floats, equestrian units, and celebrities.  This years Grand Marshal’s for the “Power of Hope” theme will be Rita Moreno, Gina Torres, and Laurie Hernandez. With hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets, avoid driving into the area.  Plus, parking will be a nightmare and very expensive.  Instead, look into the Metro Gold Line that can get you within

Rock of Ages at The Bourbon Room

Calling all Rock of Ages fans!  The musical set in 80’s Hollywood and featuring the rock music that defined the era, has decided to have their award-winning show in the heart of Hollywood for the next year.  The venue?  None other than a newly built and appropriately named theatre, “The Bourbon Room.” It’s a mystery as to why it’s taken so long for such a Hollywood appropriate show to make its full-time Hollywood appearance (limited runs at The Pantages Theatre), but better late than never!  This show is brought to Los Angeles from the creative team that produced and ran the show in New York on Broadway. With the time and detail put into literally building this theatre from the
