to do

yesterday evening, in a lull between errands, i opened all the windows wide and sat down on the couch with the may issue of sunset. there must have been something about the balmy evening air or the fact that summer is oh-so-close, because flipping through the pages soon had me dreaming up all sorts of pleasant possibilities for the coming months. i took out my pretty little notepad from my purse, one i bought on a whim while i was in boston last month, and scribbled down notes and addresses in a happy frenzy. my findings were as follows. enjoy!

an article about exploring the l.a. river by bike included a blurb about l.a. bread, a bakery on los feliz blvd. i say skip the bike riding and head straight for those caramelized banana pancakes. priorities. please.

reading about the happy hours at a couple places downtown made me want to grab some friends and get all young/hip/urban on y’all. um, yeah. anyway:

the edison (thursdays, 5-7)

ciudad (monday-friday, 4-7)

i’m not much for wine, except for the dessert variety, so when i saw one on their list that was a blend including muscat: hello, pen on paper. and ten bucks, at that! it’s a house white from the magnificent wine company. i hope it’s good, so that i can realize the vision i have in my head of languishing beneath a shady tree with a glass of it in my hand, bowl of strawberries at my side.

a pretty pretty picture renewed my fascination with macarons and nudged me again towards paulette, a bakery a friend had gushed about months ago.
