Avanti Café Review

Posted on November 30, 2009 | 9:00am

Avanti Café is a vegetarian restaurant located on 17th and Westminster Street in Costa Mesa. It can be easy to miss as there are not many large signs that draw attention to this small eatery. My first impression walking in is the appearance isn’t what I would expect of a “café.”

The tables were primarily located inside and it felt more as if I were in a small Mom & Pop style deli with shelves of different food items ready to purchase, a case of prepared food that you can choose to either take home or eat there as well as many shelves of tea. Read More

Choo Madness

Posted on November 23, 2009 | 9:00am

Call me crazy, because yours truly was part of the madness at Jimmy Choo for H&M launch last Saturday.

And talk about exclusivity. H&M decided to only bring the Jimmy Choo collection to three SoCal locations: Beverly Center, West Hollywood and South Coast Plaza. You don’t need to be an econ major to figure out it’d cause major chaos!

I woke up early and got there at 7:30 a.m. to join the fun. After hours of waiting, playing with by Blackberry, stating longingly at the entrance door, more waiting, getting lucky in not getting shoved, and yet more waiting just to pay; I emerged tired by happy seven hours later.

(We were only given 10 minutes to grab shoes/accessories!)

Anyone else go?
