Today marks the last day of service for a Los Angeles favorite in the heart of the Miracle Mile. After a 40 year run, the small chain restaurant is closing its doors due to higher rent (damn, Los Angeles).
The closing of my favorite brunch spot saddens me as I know that their closing isn’t due to bad business, but high rent. Something many Angelinos are facing, myself included. And their isn’t another place like this, let another restaurant of the same family chain, for 20 miles or so.
So I’m here with family and many other patrons sending off the restuarant and its warm staff, wishing them better endeavors.
And enjoying a heart meal… or two. After, they served one mean buffet style brunch.
Thanks you, Callendar’s for your wonderful food (they had a pretty good), friendly staff and convenient locations
Well, hello, my fellow hustlers. I came across this bit of information in my NextDoor app and thought I would share it with you. And for those of you that can benefit from this, much success. And if you can’t personally, maybe you know someone who can.
No seriously. I hate summer. Aside from the fact we get longer days with more light, I literally hate summer. I don’t go to the beach and if I do, it’s usually at night. I’m not a tank top and shorts kind of gal. Sadly, most of my wardrobe consists of slacks and decent blouses. So when it gets hot, then I get hot. Then I get irritable and I don’t want to do anything. Which makes it challenging to get the things I really need to do and the things i really want to do done.
But shouldn’t be my excuse, it is what it is. Same goes for being sick. Its hard to get anything done when you’re sick. Let alone take your ambitions to the next level.
I’ve been slowly reworking my theme days here on the Female, Single & Hustlin’ blog, trying to share as much experience on this journey of mine and whatever viable resources I come across. And as I go through this process, I’m learning more important aspects of what it means to hustle, especially as a single woman in Los Angeles. But also what my fellow hustlers may be experiencing and looking for too.
I want to experiment with “happy Fridays”. Sounds strange, I know. But it’s one of the first things I say every Friday I’m in the office. Despite the fact I don’t want to be there. Despite the fact I don’t like my job. Despite the fact I’m not exactly where I want to be in this wonderous life, I can still muster up a “Happy Friday” to a coworker. And with joy in my voice. No, really.
So every Friday I want to explore what it means to be happy or in the pursuit of happiness as I and hopefully you get closer to our dream careers, our dream lifestyle. Our dream –whatever. Yes, happy Friday because the weekend is here. But are we happy because it’s the weekend? I mean, those things come every week. A recurring two day break from killer work weeks cannot be the true reason we say “Happy Friday.”
What is making us happy? Have we found it, and if not, are we pursuing it? If not, why not? Don’t we all deserve to be happy? And not some happiness but as much as our lives can hold?
Now, granted, I’m all for taking time off to regroup, rejuvenate one’s self and definitely get away from that 9-5 that steals time from our personal pursuits and joys… but really? On a Wednesday? Is this like 2018’s idea of a joke?
I don’t know. But… as much as I wish this day was falling on a Monday or even better, a Friday, I will graciously enjoy this well deserved federal holiday off. As should you.
And to you all out there celebrating with friends and family, barbequing and fire-working, enjoy, be safe and have a good time!
