Starz Channel Must-Watch: POWER
Not quite sure why Starz Channel’s original series Power has been so off people’s radar, but I hadn’t heard of it until I read an article comparing it to FOX’s Empire.  Obviously, anything being compared to my favorite show of the moment is going to spark my interest. Lucky for me, my brother had just […]

Nic’s Pick for LA Foodies: Open Air Kitchen
I’m convinced brunch isn’t really a “thing” in Los Angeles the way it is in New York. But really, who doesn’t love brunch? Since I love a good dining experience, I don’t think it’s fair to keep this kind of valuable info away from y’all! I recently made my way over to Open Air Kitchen […]
