Oh hey LA, it feels good to be back.

I spent an extended Labor Day in Los Angeles and it felt like I never left.

Polly picked me up Thursday from LAX and we went straight to Tatsu. Starving from work and a flight, I’d been craving my usual Hippie Ramen with extra corn. It hit the spot. After a little girl talk we passed out in prep for a looooong weekend.

Friday morning we worked at my favorite Abbott Kinney spot, Intelligentsia and scoped the usual crowd of models, actors, creatives and aspiring-somethings. We met my friend Leco at the skatepark to catch up and I spotted a few familiar faces. Venice Beach felt nostalgic, as I remembered my Horizon days. The house still looks like people smoke crack and shit in the driveway, so I guess some things don’t change…

A typical Friday in Venice Beach means a gathering a Guigo’s (and Alyssa’s too!) followed by drinks with friends at James Beach, so that’s what we did. I ran into a couple CrossFitters and Cougs, so deemed Friday night a success.

Saturday morning Polly taught piano, so I met a political friend Peter for brunch. He’s a fellow freedom fighter and supporter of AGE, so great to turn online connections into real world action.

Saturday afternoon meant six hours at the Olympic Spa with Val, followed by (another round of) Tatsu. This time I also ordered the Wagyu burger, because that’s what you do after a detox.

Saturday night Polly, Val and I met friends DTLA at King Eddy’s. Per LA fashion, we ran into other friends as well, and danced the night away.

No holiday weekend is complete without Rhonda. Look at the Facebook photos. Enough said.

Post-Rhonda we ate ramen. Yes, a third ramen trip. We tried another spot, Urban Ramen, which gave Tatsu a run for its money, then called it a night.

Monday morning Val and I hiked Runyon, ate acai bowls and beautified for Wavy. We Uber’d to Hotel Figueroa for one final hurray with friends from The Well and DimMak.

We wrapped an unforgettable weekend with eyelash extensions (Val is ah-maz-ing) and some animal style.

And just like that, I was in and out.

Thanks to all my LA friends who made this one for the record books. I miss you like cray and will be back again soon.
