Monday sets the tone for the entire week, which is why I like to kickstart it with a good sweat. My go-to spot for an intense, fun, and competitive workout session is CrossFit Chalk. They put together the toughest workouts in town!
Who doesn’t love Taco Tuesday? Sol Cocina is the place to be to grab some cheap tacos with friends, people watch, and enjoy the live music playing all night long. If you’re on that low carb, keto lifestyle like me, be sure to give the Hot and Raw Tropical Ceviche a try.
As a startup founder, I can pretty much work from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. Kit Coffee in Westcliff Plaza is my new spot for a change of scenery to get outside of the home office. Their green tea matcha is great for stimulating creativity, boosting energy, and improving focus.
There is no better place for a business lunch than Cafe R+D in Fashion Island. It’s the perfect combination of classy and casual, offering a range of healthy yet filling menu choices.
Whether it is date night or happy hour with friends, you can’t go wrong with The Cannery Restaurant. Their sushi is always fresh and delicious and you can’t beat the HH prices. My favorites are the Sashimi Chirashi Bowl on a bed of seaweed salad, the Kung Pao with calamari, and shishito peppers.
I enjoy making the most of my weekends by waking up early and getting in a hot yoga session. I alternate between Villa Pilates and Ra Yoga. Both offer a variety of classes ranging from relaxing to challenging, so I can choose the one that best fits the way I’m feeling.
My “secret” brunch spot, Zinqué, in the recently redeveloped Lido Village is the perfect setting to drink and dine while enjoying the majestic view of Newport Harbor.
