|steak and eggs|
I know, I know, I travel far too much on the weekends, but I like to have fun. This past weekend was no different and I headed up to Los Angeles for the day. I started out my morning at easily the best brunch spot I have ever had - Eggslut.

Next we went to Stumptown Coffee, you might remember it from my Portland report. This LA one has a VERY different vibe, is totally LA hipster, and totally a place you go for the "scene." It was still great coffee but quite pricey.
For dinner I met a girlfriend for my birthday (its the beginning of my birth month) at Gusto in West LA. It was a cute Italian spot full of families, couples, and groups of friends. The vibe was really nice, and the wait staff was extremely attentive. The food was really good. Everything we had was shared plates and homemade Italian plates. I don't know what the bill was, but the menu was well priced for what I thought. It was a little "Beverly Hills" feeling for me but I would definitely come back here for a date or special event.
Now I need to stop eating food for a while...
