Vinoteca, a rock's throw down the street from my girlfriends digs, was the perfect early evening spot. Not to mention that it was happy hour from 4-7 and we had wine by the glass for around $6 and apps starting at $7.
We had the calamari and mozzarella caprese salad. So good!
I grew up in a small town in Ohio and experienced the type of enchanted childhood you only read about. I had family dinners every night with meals prepared by an amazing Betty Crocker esque mother and ( I )won 'Candy Making' at age 9 for 4-H in the Belmont County Fair. I have distinct memories of the moments I started to find my imagination. I began to see the world in a way I knew was different and special. When I was 20 years old I moved to Los Angeles and have been here ever since, living in my dreams.
Cheers to continuing my beautiful heritage of showing love through food, imagination through pictures, and adding a special twist (of lime..) on life.
