Favorite things about living in Venice Beach: The air quality, the fact that the temperature is always cooler than rest of LA, being able to walk and bike everywhere, and most of all the beach!
Favorite place to eat: Wallflower for Dinner, and Gjusta or the Butchers Daughter for lunch and breakfast
Best place for a cocktail: Roosterfish but it just closed down! We are all devastated about this. It was the best! I think my next favorite would be Cock and Bull on Lincoln blvd. They host fun game nights, have pool, darts its just a very mellow place to spend quality drinking time.
Best souvenir someone could bring back from Venice: Anything from Tortoise. They have some of the most unique gifts in all of LA.
Most unexpected thing about the neighborhood: We are desperately seeking some nightlife!
