In this epic love story to the city of Los Angeles and its colorful food scene, restaurant critic Jonathan Gold paints an intimate portrait of his hometown with a different kind of artist’s palette. By bringing to center stage the no-name, hole-in-the-wall spots that make LA’s culture so rich, Gold accomplishes what few have done in the past.

Will Rogers Highway

 

America’s “Mother Road,” stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, was the first of its kind in many respects. For starters, it was the first diagonal highway covering a long stretch of land in the 1920s. But more importantly, it was a pioneer in connecting small, rural towns in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas with larger, urban regions, which helped farmers ship their goods to the big cities. When it was officially commissioned in 1926, Route 66 included 2,448 miles of road. And even though only 800 of those miles were paved, it still served as the nation’s primary junction between the east and west.

Glamping on San Juan Island

by Foodista.com


Add this to your bucket list: Gourmet Glamping. If you’re wondering what “glamping” is, think camping but without actually roughing it. Sleep in a comfortable bed in a wood-floored canvas tent and eat really, really good food that you cook over an open fire with a guest chef as your guide. Food truly does taste better when it’s cooked outdoors, especially when paired with exceptional wines and an amazing group of people.

By Mar Yvette

Man vs. nature. Man vs. man. Man vs. self. These outer and inner conflicts inhabit every moment in “The Revenant,” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s cinematic tour de force. The title aptly refers to Leonardo DiCaprio’s character who quite literally comes back from near-death to seek revenge on the man (played by a remarkably villainous Tom Hardy) who abandoned him and killed his son.
