Restaurant Review: Terroni at Spring Street in DTLA

Truffle, lamb ragu, linguine
  • In traditional Italian fashion, Terroni is a gem in the crowded space of all of the Italian restaurants in town. Opening in DTLA last year, I have been a bit of a lazy babe and have passed on the dining spot for quite some time but fail no more, this past week I was treated to a birthday dinner at Terroni in DTLA. 

    In the semi-formal sense it is a fun place. Like all too many of LA’s dining venues the atmosphere is always mixed with a multitude of styles so dinner can be whatever you want it to be - casual, formal, cocktail, you name it. Terroni is no different even on a Saturday night. I opted for a floral cocktail dress just in case you are wondering. It is the one I wore to the Coco Laurent wine tasting so you can see it here.

Cards Against Humanity @ Wolf & Crane

If you are in DTLA on a Wednesday Night and want to walk on the other side for a little bit, Wolf & Crane is a good place to start. A few Wednesday nights ago, I enjoyed the MC, Hipster Satan and some ridiculously good cheap snacks while playing Cards Against Humanity for the very first time. You don’t need to be tipsy to let go for this game. The cards alone will intrigue and stimulate your mind enough to come up with some insanely crazy phrases. Some of them really made me blush. 

Each team won some great prizes. Yes, a Neil Diamond CD was one of them. I thought it would have been appropriate to have the DJ pop it in so we could do a jig but everyone else was opposed to that gesture. I ended up Urkeling out by myself but at least I burned off all of the chips and pretzels.   

Wolf & Crane is very unique in its name and presence in the Little Tokyo district. It bridges the contrast between the glitz bars emerging in surrounding districts and the neighboring eateries. if the name doesn’t immediately infer proper cultural reference to you; “Wolf” is in reference to the Honshu Wolf and “Crane” is referenced to the Red-Crowned Crane. 

Wolf & Crane hosts Happy Hour Monday - Friday from 5-7pm and all day Sunday with specials running throughout the week. Cards Against Humanity is every Wednesday 9-11pm. Whatever you do, don’t fall for Satan. He’s a looker ;)

The Best Asymmetrical Twist Skirt I've Found So Far!

I have several high/low skirts and a few versions of the asymmetrical twist skirt but this one is really comfortable and just has an overall nice draping to it that can go from being really dressed up and very casual depending on what you pair it with. In this video I have on a simple tank top. I wasn't planning on doing this video but after receiving so many compliments on the skirt, I decided to run a quick review for you guys and include some photos too!

Organic Groceries At Your Door -Kale Cart in DTLA

You have probably only heard of Kale Cart if you live in DTLA. It is a healthy, environmentally friendly concept that falls right in line with the ever growing movement of doing business local. KaleCart delivers weekly bags of organic groceries to your door. For most people this sounds like an extreme luxury that you only get to experience in a place like Los Angeles or the Upper East Side of New York City but services like this have really gotten affordable for most apartment dwellers too busy to take care of daily errands and tasks - nevermind eating. As more entrepreneurs become increasing clever about opportunities to provide services such as shopping and delivering groceries, they are also becoming more environmentally friendly. KaleCart delivers their customers groceries on a bike. If you are old enough to remember going to the store on your bike to get a quart of milk for your mother than you can kind of wrap your head around a service that not only curates your weekly grocery options but also delivers them to your door - on a bike.  Now, I’m going to make you really jealous, KaleCart is exclusive to DTLA but I think Amazon Fresh should watch their back. Judging from my attendance at KaleCart’s Springtime Celebration last week, services like this are likely to start booming considering the low startup costs and easy exit strategy - eat the food, sell the bikes! Seeing this kind of trend reminds me of the doggie daycare boom. It is here to stay!
