My love affair with Ireland began long before I set foot on the emerald shores – growing up in an almost “Quiet Man” fantasy world of the love a country I had only heard about from my family – I even acquired the love of the Notre Dame Irish football team, U2 and Irish Spring soap.

Hey, I’m Getting Romantic Here, I’m Getting Romantic Here

Not to start out all sappy and chick-flick-like, but I really never cared if my wife and I went to an island in the middle of nowhere, with lapping waves and a cabana boy named Coco or got a room at a motel in Bakersfield, as long as we made it romantic, it would not matter where we spent our honeymoon. Ok, Bakersfield may not be the answer, but you get my romantic point. Continue reading

Catching the Wave of SUP Yoga in Los Angeles

By Jeff Game

SUP Yoga in Los Angeles

Brand New Day

When I was asked to check out a demo class with other journalists on SUP Yoga in Los Angeles last week with the designer of the Indo Yoga Board, Hunter Joslin, I surprised myself by jumping at the chance to try this new form of yoga that is creeping its way into fitness centers throughout Los Angles.

Challenging myself to get out of my comfort zone is not always one of my strongest qualities, however when I get out of my own skin and try something new, I usually wonder what I was whining about in the first place. At the same time I love discovering new and cool things to do in L.A., even if it involves working out. I must be evolving?!

Let’s just say I am not the strongest yoga player on the team and I have taken only a handful of classes in my life. However, I do regularly workout to a yoga video with my wife on our Amazon Prime with Bob Harper from America’s Biggest Loser fame. The workouts videos are fast and decently easy to do for this aging dude who was once upon a time an average athlete.

The New Culver City Is Ready For A Close-Up

New Culver City

Los Angeles is a massive, diverse and sprawling city that is ever evolving, even for a lifelong Angeleno as myself, and it is extra cool when you discover a new and revamped area of the city like the new Culver City.

Culver City is rapidly ushering back the spirit of “Old Hollywood Chic.” Longtime tenant and prominent filmmaker MGM (now Sony Studios) helped resurrect the town’s image as a cool stomping ground, bustling with trendy restaurants and hip hot spots.

Harry Culver’s initial concept that “all roads lead to Culver City” may finally be realized, as its location is accessible by all points around the greater Los Angeles area. As attainable as it is, Culver City has managed to tuck away some of the most unique hangouts that even the most active L.A. local may not know exist.

Honeymoon in Paris: Baguette’s, Walks in the Rain and Jim Morrison

By Jeff GameHoneymoon in Paris

Travel to Paris with myself, and my new bride in a three part series of articles on one of the most romantic cities in the world, as we honeymoon in Paris.

Honeymoon in Paris

 

Renting an Apartment

You descend the one flight of the creaky, wooden staircase, past the clanging bottles of the bar below and out into damp streets to walk a block for a jambon et fromage (ham & cheese sandwich) for breakfast. The smells of roasted coffee, freshly baked croissants and the morning rain dominate the air. All around you hear the hustle and bustle of a typical Parisian morning and languages that are foreign to your tongue. Renting an apartment in Paris on a vacation is a great way to submerse yourself into the culture and discover another world off the beaten path of Paris.

Honeymoon in Paris

 

My wife and I like to say, do things in a different way, and that included taking our honeymoon a couple weeks before our actual wedding. Either way, we still had an amazing honeymoon in Paris and what cooler way to do that than to rent a cozy apartment in Paris.

The new 2.0 Disney experience has cocktails, leather seats and umbrellas in your liquid escape away from the endless long lines, the mass tourists that line Main Street U.S.A., the noise and the crush that is a typical day in the house that the mouse built.
