I’ve been on a major Acai bowl kick recently, and Juice Crafters serves up my absolute favorite. Their protein bowl with Maca is delicious, and a great way to start the work week feeling good.




Exercise is an essential part of my routine, and Tuesday is all about Pilates. It’s a rigorous full-body workout, and Monica Diederich at Equinox Marina Del Rey puts me through the paces.




Get over the hump with a stop at Caffe Luxxe. They make a quality cup of joe. Only a few locations on the Westside, but worth seeking out if you’re a coffee aficionado.




KCRW’s Summer Nights are free music events all over SoCal, including Thursday evenings at the Santa Monica Pier. The long running Twilight Concert Series through September at the pier seems to just gets better, and the Metro line to the beach makes it even easier to plan on it.




Luckson and Father’s Office at the Helms Bakery are two favorite eateries. Located near art galleries, book stores, and home decor shops, the Helms Bakery district and nearby Metro stop in Culver City always make for a leisurely afternoon walk.




Metropolis is my dance music mix show on 89.9 KCRW every Saturday night at 10 p.m., but it’s also a regular love letter to the nightlife in Los Angeles. Whether you’re out on the town, or having a dance party at home, I hope you’ll join me in Metropolis.

The Hollywood Bowl is an LA landmark, and on any given Sunday this summer you can find me enjoying KCRW’s World Festival series which includes Kraftwerk, Brian Wilson and Pet Sounds 50th, Kurt Vile, and more.
