I had a quick vacation to celebrate a friend's birthday in Los Angeles and it was also filled with my favorite things: art and food!


Seeing full walls filled with images like this reminds me of some of our Honolulu neighborhoods!


I do my best to only visit a restaurant once because there are so many to dine at and only so many days on vacation somewhere new!


The Los Angeles Food and Wine fest was setting up nearby where I was staying in Downtown LA as I was roaming the streets and later, I made it to LACMA for their "Van Gogh to Kandinsky" exhibit!:
