One of my favourite cities on earth is LA. On our recent trip we hijacked a good friends home in Venice Beach for a month (bless you Kate). As is the way there were some stand out additions to the local scene since my last rodeo in the US of A. I am fortunate that my local buddies are always sharing the best places to shop, eat and where to some good old fashion maintenance. The good stuff that really needs to be found by word of mouth rather than google. So I’m passing on my hard earned research so the next time you jet in you can get your Venice on without breaking a “where to” sweat.
