Cruising through LA - 20

Chase Bank Drive-up ATM

LA Galaxy - as good as it gets

Who are LA Galaxy? 
The Los Angeles Galaxy are an American professional soccer team, based in the Los Angeles suburb of Carson, California, which competes in Major League Soccer (MLS). 
They have won the MLS Cup four times (2002, 2005, 2011, 2012). 
The club's current head coach is former US national team coach Bruce Arena.
In January 2007, the club made international headlines by signing English superstar David Beckham from Real Madrid, which was the highest-profile signing in the history of MLS.

Because it was St.Patty's Day and gotta love soccer with Irish people, we went to see LA Galaxy VS Chivas USA.
Location: Carson, California
Temperature: over 75 degrees (F)
My only cons: they didn't sell green beer, just the regular one. So no beer for my horses! :)

Welcome to Spring Allergy Season 2013

Spring is here with blooming flowers, chirping birds and warmer weather. Unfortunately, also spring brings itchy eyes, runny noses and the feeling that you're being punk'd. 
Or at least that's how I felt for the last few days. And it ain't no fun! I hate allergies!!!!!!
So Are you ready for the sneezing, sniffling, red itchy eyes season? Brrr....

Saturday brunch

Cafe Buna in Marina Del Rey. Along with 26 Beach Restaurant across the street, these are Marina Del Rey's best kept secrets. The weather was just wonderful, so we took the outdoor seating.
I got the Panini: chicken, bacon, pesto, pastrami and Gruyere cheese. With salad. And orange juice. 

My friend got the 2+2+2: pancakes, French Toast or waffle, eggs plus bacon. And a ton of coffee. :)

What is brunch? Here is the best explanation:

"Jacques: Meet me tomorrow for brunch.
Marge: What's brunch?
Jacques: You'd love it. It's not quite breakfast, it's not quite lunch but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end. You don't get completely what you would at breakfast but you get a good meal."
So says Jacques to Marge on the Simpsons as they go on a pseudo-date in Homer's absence. 

Spring going into Summer

March 1st: Just a beautiful day @ Santa Monica Beach
