Ice Cream, the quintessential summer treat that stirs up fond childhood memories of Dairy Queen and time spent with my dad. Ice cream is an amazing desert that is both simple and complex. Something as simple as cream, eggs, sugar and vanilla can give way to scientific concoctions with sophisticated flavor profiles and ingredients that read like a potion.
If the upswing of people at my gym in the morning tells me anything, it’s that summer is right around the corner. For many people, this signals lazy beach days, outdoor concerts, al fresco dining and vacations on the horizon. . For me, the impending season means the return of one of my favorite Southern California past times…outdoor cinema!
JamiePNation has waited almost 29 years for this day. Finally, it’s here! The Dodgers are in the World Series! Unfortunately, it’s probably time to face up to the sad fact that you don’t have an extra $3,000 lying around to buy yourself a seat next to Mary Hart behind home plate.
Scorching heat has given way to the tell-tale signs of fall—cooler mornings, earlier sunsets, pumpkin spice, and shrines to my favorite holiday, Halloween! For some, the holiday is nothing more than a visit to a pumpkin patch, costumed cuteness, and massive amounts of candy consumption.For others, like me, there are masquerade parties, elaborate regalia, complex decorations months in the making, and themed events all over our city.
“If it were not for art, I would have killed myself a long time ago.”
Pragmatic words from the art world’s most prolific darling. Establishing herself as the world’s most popular artist in 2014 (based on museum attendance), Yayoi Kusama has been creating art for over three quarters of a century.
“Buying a home should be an exciting event, but sadly an email and money-wiring scam is underway targeting consumers’ sensitive financial information. We’re working with the Federal Trade Commission to shine a bright light on that criminal activity and help protect prospective homeowners.”

“I’ve been hacked!”
Blame it on Pearl Jam! While looking for a substitute venue during the band’s dispute with Ticketmaster, Indio’s Empire Polo Field became the host not only to 25,000 grunge fans, but also the birth of an idea for a US music festival to rival those in Europe. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has grown considerably from the original October 1999 date with approximately 40,000 attendees to the current 198,000 per day juggernaut. We spoke with our veteran Coachella Nationites and have put together a simple list of pro-tips to make your desert experience memorable for all the right reasons. Although Coachella specific, many of these hacks carry over to any multi-day music event.
For years, the Los Angeles food scene could best be described like a drive through the desert…a desolate barren wasteland. Sure, we had great Mexican food and a few standouts, but for a metropolis of our size, those gems had to be searched for. Luckily our fair city has not only caught up with the rest of the country, but is now one of the most exciting and diverse. From Michelin Stars to celebrity chefs to food trucks turned brick and mortar, the Los Angeles foodscape is constantly evolving into an effulgent array of deliciousness!
While most of the country is cold, angry and has just one weekend to get excited about, we Angelinos are stuffing new adventures into this strangely spelled month; a month that is mostly known for Ground Hogs Day and a Hallmark made up holiday. Okay, maybe I am the only one who thinks it's spelled strangely.
Let me go ahead and state the obvious: the temperature in Los Angeles makes it one of the best places to live in the United States. But, in addition to the weather, Los Angeles has something equally as wonderful…location! While there is plenty to see and explore within our fair city, sometimes it’s great just to get away.
