studio city hotspots

for the last couple of months I have been kickin it in the valley living in a purgatory awaiting my move to the heaven that is hollywood. in pure PR fashion, my fab publicist scored me a featured spot in a studio city publication as a studio city resident who is down on all the hotspots. it comes out next month. by that time I will be living la vida lacienega...
For some uber fashion and the latest fun trendy hot spots, forget Hollywood and Vine! Pedal over the hill and find out that Laurel and Ventura is where it is at!
The Valley boasts a lot of history, a lighter traffic flow then Hollywood, and the parking Nazis here are just a tad nicer. While the other side of the hill might be a bit less exciting then the big city, the pace is slower, and after shooting an episode of my show and working 14 hour days with the hot lights baking me like a stuffed potato, it’s nice to come home to a more sedate atmosphere.
For the Valley Virgins, here are just a few of my favorite Studio City haunts:

Yes, the Valley has it’s very own Coffee Bean which I’m at for an Iced Mocha Latte with No Sugar Added every morning (ADDRESS?) -

A five minute ride takes you to a beautiful morning hike in the canyon of Fryman

Trader Joe’s for dried pineapples and other yummy groceries, not to mention 2 buck chuck!

Sunday morning Farmers Market for fresh flowers, vegetables, and authentic tamales.

The 24 hour Ventura newsstand for the New York Times Sunday Edition (Style Section and Wedding Announcements) and yes, Studio City boasts the same selection of magazines that you can find at Borders! (Which we have, too!)

NEWS FLASH ALERT! PINKBERRY YOGURT is coming soon to the Studio City Plaza!!?!

For those of you who don’t know Pinkberry, get to know it.

La Perla has its merits, but IMHO, hands down, Faire Frou Frou is THE SPOT for fancy pants lingerie and undergarment type goodies.

Everybody who is anybody, gets down at Guy’s North. I especially like their Sunday Sopranos viewing party… and their martinis ain’t too shabby, either. Make sure to ask for Lisa Anne. She’s the best darn rum-slinger in the SC.

I’m a big fan of Lisa Rinna’s place Belle Gray on Ventura. I saw Kelly Ripa there once

For cool jazz on a hot Friday night, hit up The Baked Potato on Cahuenga. Not only do you get cool jazz, you get a baked potato!

Get the tastiest exotic teas and the out-of-this-world vegan green casserole at the classy Hugo’s on Coldwater and Riverside.
