Brunch at 26 Beach, Venice CA

Hi guys,

If you follow me on Instagram (@courtneyyquinn), you may have noticed that I have been posting at the restaurant 26 Beach lately. It is a restaurant in Venice that I am obsessed with. My first time going there was only about a month ago, but I’ve been there so many times since!

I heard about this place through friends at school. Everyone loves it and always talks about it! Although I’ve been to Sunny Spot for Sunday brunch across the street (highly recommend), I just never made my way over to 26 Beach.

Over the weekend I went again with my two roommates. Their menu offers up to TWENTY different kinds of french toast! How awesome is that! I ordered the S’mores, while my two friends got the Lemon Curd and the Very Berry.

With french toast choices ranging from the “Tiramisu” to “Caramel Macchiato,” this place is an amazing spot for brunch. Oh, did I mention how cute it is inside too? Everything is pink and fashion themed!

Last week I attended a Tom Petty concert at the Hollywood Bowl. He told the audience that it was his last show of a long tour, and there was no better place to end it than in beautiful Los Angeles. Continue reading “Attending Tom Petty’s Last Concert… EVER?!”

On the Hunt for Coffee

Hiiiii friends!

Back to school means getting back on that homework grind. I can never just sit in the library at school because when I look out the window over the bluff, all I want to do is go explore LA! So, I compromise by finding cute and trendy coffee shops around the city to get that sh*t done. And thankfully, one just opened up down the street from my campus! It’s called Blue Bottle — it’s one of my favorite coffee shops on Abbot Kinney and now it’s even closer! Continue reading “On the Hunt for Coffee”

My First Time Working the Red Carpet

Hi everyone,

I hope you had a great weekend 🙂 My weekend was pretty exciting because it was my first time working at a press event. I have been to these kinds of events before, but always as a guest and never as someone running it.

A little back story: over the summer I am working at a celebrity and event PR firm in Beverly Hills. On Thursday, I got to take some of our clients down the red carpet at an event in support of breast cancer called “Babes for Boobs.” It was hosted by two of the stars of the reality show “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ and Sharon Osbourne presented her daughter, Kelly Osbourne, with an award.
