Ready to see some stars? Sleep through your alarm and grab late brunch at The Griddle Café on the corner of Sunset and Fairfax to satisfy your morning cravings. A hotspot for actors on hiatus, add your name to the list and run across the street to the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for a caramel latte while you wait for your table. Beware the malicious parking lot, brunch brings out the hawks in Angelenos, and the best way to score a spot is to roll down the windows, chat with folks leaving the restaurant and follow them politely to their car.
Fully caffeinated and carb-ated, head west on Sunset Boulevard to Sunset Plaza for some high fashion shopping. Need some new trendy specs? Pop into Oliver Peoples and get fitted for a hip pair of glasses. Nothing comes between me and my Oliver Peoples. Pick up some haute couture at Just Cavalli, and leave with bold print must-haves and Cavalli’s signature scent. Shopping for little ones? Look no further than Sunset Kids for the hottest designer looks for your little Suri or Shiloh. Take in the beautiful people while you browse, for Sunset Plaza is a magnet for aspiring models and striving actors.
An insider’s note, if you REALLY want to your favorite DWTS star or CW vixen, get a 1-day guest pass at Crunch Fitness on Sunset and Crescent Heights to get your sweat on in a Zumba or Pi-Yoga class.
Maxing out credit cards makes me hungry, you? Valet your ride and prepare for some good, old-fashioned Italian grub at Il Sole for lobster ravioli with a glass of pinot. Ask for patio seating to continue to people watch to your heart’s delight. Duck the paparazzi and stroll on over for a post-dinner cocktail at the swanky Chateau Marmont Bar. As the night is young, let’s head over to the Comedy Store or the Laugh Factory for some hearty guffaws. Don’t be surprised if Aziz Ansari or Chris Rock stop in for a surprise set to test drive their new jokes.
High on giggles, it’s time to shake your bootie at Trousdale Lounge. Gorgeous folks unite under the sounds of Hip Hop and late 80’s to 90’s remixes to dance the night away. If you’re STILL going strong at 2am, end your night at Mel’s Diner and order the chocolate milkshake and grilled cheese for a glorious end to your absolutely fabulous day.
