I woke up to this view out of my sliding glass door and knew it was going to be a great day.
After hanging out, we got ready for brunch and enjoyed the sunshine.
We pulled up to the Parker Hotel and I couldn’t control my picture-taking self. This looked like a postcard.
The lobby is a vintage decor lover’s dream.
When we sat down at the one of the hotel’s restaurants, Norma’s, our waiter presented us with this beautiful bottle of champagne that one of Dynasti’s friends sent her as a present. I was so excited!!
They served fresh squeezed orange juice and peach nectar with the champagne. I mixed the two together for a sunset mimosa. We started with Norma’s fresh donuts, which were served with lemon curd and blueberry jam. They were hot and amazing! I also had the heuvos rancheros that were served on top of a cheese quesadilla. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm with a slight breeze.
The best part of the meal was the company. And two more of Dynasti’s friends joined us for the weekend at the restaurant.
After a long and leisurely brunch, we headed back to the house for an afternoon by the pool. Driving back from brunch, I noticed fruit trees on the property – a lime tree and an orange tree. I had to pick some of each to make some juice and cocktails. It would be so nice to have these at home!
Then it was time to get ready for our night out on the town.
The first stop was the Tonga Hut and Tiki Bar for some Pi Yi’s, which are pineapples hollowed out and filled with rum and tropical juices. Then we headed to dinner at Jake’s. I had a Hendricks Cooler, a wedge salad, and the tuna poké. The final stop was the Ace Hotel to dance the night away.
