Before we headed back home we squeezed in some random places to see in LA. One of those random places we visited was the building from the tv show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Like most people I thought they filmed the show in Philadelphia and was surprised to hear that they mostly film in LA. If you’re a fan of the show I’m sure these pictures of Paddy’s Pub will look familiar to you. Unfortunately you aren’t able to go inside and the building isn’t a bar. Bummer……
Since we were in Downtown LA we decided to visit the “500 days of Summer Park” aka Angels Knoll. On our way to Angels Knoll we passed by the Bradbury Building, you know the building where Blade Runner and where Tom from 500 days of Summer goes for an interview. Here’s a random fact for you: The Bradbury building is the oldest commercial building remaining in LA. It truly an amazing building to see.
A few weeks back while visiting the fam fam we were trying to come up with things to do in LA while spending time with my mom. Ian had come across this video and really wanted to check out the place. When we told my mom about the idea she didn’t seem too keen about driving all the way to Highland Park just to visit a store with a bunch of different sodas. But man, did her opinion change once she set foot in that door. Her eyes lit up and she got soo excited, let me just say she literally looked like a kid in a candy shop.
If you are ever in LA I’d definitely recommend taking a trip to Galco’s Soda Pop Store. The amounts of soda stocked in this one store is amazing and the sodas are made with actual sugar (none of this corn syrup junk). The owner is super friendly and was able to give advice on which kinds of soda we might like. My favorites sodas so far have been: Mint Julip, Nesbitts Peach, and Bubble Up just to name a few.
Orla Kiley can do no wrong in my book. I love everything from their prints that you get on your bed sheets to the lovely bags they carry. This British label makes adorable dresses that I can only dream of wearing. Their new autumn/winter collection gives off a 60s vibe- which I can very much appreciate.

All this weekend I’ve had this song in my head. The melody is so infectious, I can’t help humming along to it. This song has a sort of mellow/Dr. Dog kind of feel to it (if that makes any sense). The entire album, Works on Paper seems to be influenced by a sort of 90s indie rock. I highly recommend giving the entire album a listen, trust me it’s pretty darn good.
