Cote in Brentwood


Guess where this is. A sun-room at a Malibu beach house or a den at a home on the Cape? 
How about a brand new fantastic nail salon in Brentwood!

The interior of the lovely flagship Cote in Brentwood

Cote offers a fun new approach to keeping your nails and toes looking great for summer. The wonderful bright and airy environment feels more like a beach cottage than a nail salon. All of the 109 shades of nail polish at Cote are completely natural. The polish is never tested on animals and is free of the toxins in most brands. That rare combination of  gorgeous and good for you. 
The colors are rich and unique.  Their polish goes on with a shine and lasts longer than most other brands on the market. Even the bottles are unique - made from Italian glass.  Cote offers manicures and pedicures and irresistible hot stone foot massages. They offer petit services for those with smaller hands and feet - children under twelve. 
Cote also sells wonderful products such as candles, scrubs, lotion and tote bags. Great gifts to stock up on or keep for yourself. Welcome to the neighborhood Cote! 
Pryor Events are definitely fans of Cote

Benefits of Cucumbers


Originally found in India, Cucumbers are now grown all around the world. We cannot guarantee this is all true but we certainly hope so as Cucumbers are delicious.

We hope Ellen was lucky enough to take these home.

Crossroads West Hollywood

I often hear people rave about restaurants only to try them and walk away disappointed with the food. Last night I had dinner at Crossroads Kitchen in West Hollywood. This wonderful restaurant did not disappoint. Chefs Tal Ronnen and Scot Jones are brilliant. 
I was impressed with the food which was seasonal and fresh and quite tasty. Each dish was appetizing and satisfying.

Crossroads specializes in Mediterranean small plates. They do wonders with vegetables. We began our meal with a velvety cauliflower bisque that was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the Mediterranean Vegetable pot pie which 
consisted of winter root vegetables and  porcini mushrooms topped with a delicious crust. Romanesco on a bed of sweet potatoes and black garlic pesto was loaded with flavor. The garlic had the perfect amount of spice. The artichoke puree with crispy oyster mushrooms, yellow tomato bearnaise and kelp caviar was quite tasty as well. Banana bread pudding was the perfect dessert to finish this most delicious meal. 

The drinks at Crossroads are colorful, varied and eclectic.
I am almost reluctant to mention that the entire menu is vegan as you could easily eat an entire meal here without realizing this.
Pryor Events are fans of Crossroads Kitchen.

Third and Fairfax

The original Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax is one of those places you can visit often and always find something new.
It is comprised of dozens of individual stalls selling original, mouth watering delicacies from around the world. 

The Farmers Market opened in 1934 and is a historic landmark.
The same family has owned the land since 1861 and they continue to operate The Farmers Market. 

Short Cake is one of our favorites. All of their baked goods are fantastic. Their opened faced "toasts" filled with farm fresh ingredients are perfect for any meal. The cheese fondue at Monsieur Marcel is wonderful on a chilly evening. Corned beef at Magees is a must. Magees has been at the market since the very beginning. The shrimp Po'boy and the seafood gumbo at The Gumbo Pot are worth the drive. If you like Mediterranean food then you will want to try Moishes. 

This is a photo of The Farmers Market from many years ago. With the exception of the clothes, this shot could have been taken today. There is something refreshing about a place that has kept its original charm all of these years - especially in a city like L A where so many things come and go. 
Pryor Events are big fans of The original Farmers Market.
