BOLD SUMMER in Beverly Hills

Yes, the daytime highs have been taking their toll.  Most days so far in July and August have been in the high 80’s, 90’s, and even some have topped out at over a 100.  However, there’s few things better than summer nights in Los Angeles. Once that sun dips down over the Santa Monica Mountain Range and drops lower on the horizon in the Pacific Ocean, it’s near perfect.  Plus, there’s no pesky bugs! One still has 2 more weeks to enjoy BOLD in Beverly Hills.  The annual event has businesses open with extended hours throughout the 90210.  Most of this event takes place on Rodeo Drive, but look for much more in the entire Golden Triangle of shopping and dining.

Tocaya Organica Restaurant Sunset Strip

Los Angeles has no shortage of great restaurants for Mexican cuisine. Around almost every corner there is a great sit down restaurant or a taco stand that has great food. We love our Taco Tuesday’s here so the demand is high! Even our taco places all have styles of their own. You can enjoy great Mexican cuisine in a fine dining setting, or find a hidden gem with a taco truck. Sometimes you just need something a little in between these settings – and Tocaya is definitely the place. Tocaya Organica Restaurant Sunset Strip was started in 2016, and now they have locations popping up all over the city – and for good reason! The casual restaurant allows you to
