If you have been following the blog for a few months, you’ll know that I am a Brand Ambassador for a Social City Guide + Travel App.  It’s been one of the most fun things I’ve gotten to do recently as it gives me one more excuse to exit my comfortable favorites and find the new. And finding what I’ve never experienced before is truly why my heart is held by travel.

HeyLet’s has spent the day with me in San Francisco, crossed the pond to London, and led me in the discovery of Gelato Pops in Italy.  This past week, the trusty piece of travel technology gave me a reason to venture into Downtown LA.  Here is what happened hanging out with HeyLets in DTLA.

2:00 pm

Left beach life just barely before the heinous traffic of Los Angeles really begins (I say really because we all know it’s always) to reach DTLA.

2:45 pm

Awkwardly chat with my friend Daynn’s neighbors while waiting for him outside his downtown apartment.  I really wish I stayed in the car two minutes longer. I have no idea what’s in-store.

3: 15 pm

Walk around Grand Central Market. Daynn tells me he’s crazy about Eggslut. ‘Portuguese Bun’ and ‘egg’ mean little to me.  This vegan doesn’t like eggs, but G & B Coffee is around the corner and I have an obsession to overpriced coffee and good latte art.  I decline Daynn’s offer to buy me a cup of goodness though. I think my energy level at the moment is already over-the-top.  He laughs in agreement.

3:30 pm

We walk over to Walt Disney Concert Hall. It looks so captivating in the shimmery Los Angeles sun. I’ve grown up in California and have lived in Hermosa Beach for seven years and I’ve never been here before.  It’s true that we all sometimes forget to explore our own backyards.  I need to remember the name of the architect. I’ve written articles about him.

5:30 pm

Daynn and I realize we got lost in the serenity of the garden.  Our parking has expired. We walk back towards the direction of the car.  This is when he mentions Dirt Dog.  What is this thing: Dirt Dog???

6:00 pm

After a thorough discussion of Dirt Dog, Chia Seed Pudding, and nothing in paticular, I am finally introduced to a street dog that has gone gourmet and corn-on-the-cob that has found itself a trendy name that doesn’t make one think, ‘I’m going to have pieces of corn strings hanging from my braces.’ It’s a cheap eat for LA. Good for any flight attendant or actor’s life.

7:00 pm

We arrive at Bottega Louie and I’m realizing that I should probably know what this place is as it seems like a big deal.  The macaroons in the case are a rainbow of color that make me exclaim that I like glitter and my brain is wandering to thoughts of unicorns. We get a few flavors to taste, along with a couple of Americanos that were actually accidental lattes.  That’s ok. I’ve learned the best adventures are sometimes found on accident.
