What was the food highlight of your year?
I guess the food highlight of my year was discovering Guisados. It has become one of my favorite places in Los Angeles, the place I turn to whenever I’m running around and want something quick, cheap, and delicious. I love that they’ve taken something that everyone in LA is super familiar with, something you can find multiple times on just about every street here, unique and special. That’s an inspiration to me. I hope to achieve the same sort of thing with Donut Friend!
What was the music highlight of your year?
The musical highlight of my year was probably seeing both The Refused and The Faint at this year’s FYF. Both bands have been super important to me and kind of represent the two sides of my musical taste. To be able to see them both at the same festival was amazing. And I hate festivals!
