Beverly Hills California WATCH!

A big Bark Out for L'Ermitage Hotel.... one of the Beverly Hills most prestigious and comfortable home away from home retreats that features the best European services and staff. An incredible ambiance, set in the center of the city surrounded by lush green parks, rose gardens, art and sculpture, culinary delights, famous restaurants, Rodeo Drive every... fashionista's drop till you shop location and more.

The best part of this 5 paw hotel experience is they will love love love your pocket pooches, your rescue pups, any Heinz Variety is welcome... no size limit restrictions.

AND BREAKFAST IS HIS AND MY FAVORITE MEAL


Journey our adopted Labradorable boy just turned two and half years old. It was time for a celebration. WATCH!

Dinner Out

Journey was comfortably ensconced in our suite watching his favorite, The Disney Channel, when we made the great escape to dine at one of the best restaurants in the city, Livello.

Best part of Chef' Zack Gochin's cuisine is the immersion of fresh, local, organic ingredients from the Beverly Hills Farmers Market and other locations. Inspired by Italy and some of the freshest homemade pastas, we dined on a 5 course tasting menu served elegantly on narrow white porcelain, each dish prepared with the freshest vegetables free-range hormone- free meats and specially sourced seafood.

And if dinner wasn't enough of a treat, breakfast on the quiet outdoor patio surrounded by the sounds of the waterfall and lush green scenery made our stay so complete... to the point we booked a second night ( and we were lucky to get the same room) overlooking Burton Way and the city. The second night we took advantage of the patio and sat with Journey beside a burning fireplace getting a double feng shui affect. It's amazing how adaptable our pets are to city life when they can hear falling water and gaze into a fire.

Luxury comes in all shapes and dimensions The pool and terrace at L'Ermitage is the perfect size, so intimate and inviting. Unless you are a sunbather, many these days are not which means you might just score the entire place to yourself. I did. Room service will deliver anything your heart desires. You can even pay the concierge to fetch a corned beef on rye from Nate and Al's famous deli which is only a few blocks away. While I finished reading, a Los Angeles Sunday Times article about 33 1/3.. I became totally engrossed with Ally Grossman's editorial opinions, while Jim got a massage! Lucky dog!

"The E'rmitage Hotel is the Crown Jewel of Boutique Luxury Hotels in the heart of iconic Beverly Hills." James Chuda reflects on the beautiful and historic surrounds and pays homage to those whose imprints are ever lasting.

And when you feel like a walk in the park you're just steps away from one of the most beautiful journeys in all of Beverly Hills... as beautiful as the Tuileries in France.

OMG! Look who we ran into... Suzanne LaCock Browning...one of the most devoted animal activists in the city.

Editor's Notes:

And far away from the maddening crowds I returned home to write this article, looked out my window and found a couple of Journey's friends that want to go along for the ride next time we visit L'Ermitage a Viceroy Property in Beverly Hills.

Bacon Barrels Babes and Bushwacker Oh My!

Los Olivos California Saarloos and Sons Field

 

Bacon and Beer

Forget the BLT and hold the mayo and instead head to Los Olivos for one of the most successful festivals in the country. Bacon and Barrels is a tradition. If you're a fan of the crunch, snap, and zing that only bacon can bring to your palate then you will love love love this festival. And it's not just the bacon were talking about. The gents and the ladies mozy around popping samples of bacon; bathed, wrapped, skewered, soaked, glazed and yes distilled into dry martinis. It's a dirty trick but what the heck it sure adds great flavor. The babes on the other hand like their bacon slathered between two of Bob's Well Bread Bakery slices of bread with homemade dill pickles. And just in case your not into relishing the various barrels of micro brewed beer you might want to head for the aged bourbon. But if your gonna spend time on Saarloos Field in Los Olivos chasing babes you better watch out for the BULL It's been told that J. B. Mauney and Bushwacker are coming to town.
