Los Angeles, CA


Having grown up on the north side of Madison, the city has held a lot of different meanings. From Lake View Elementary to UW, I took it all for granted until I left. Although I have lived in Los Angeles for the last 10 years, Madison is still home. Whether in the middle of summer or in the dead of winter, there are few places that bring me more excitement than making a trip back. Now, Madison-time means family-time. Most of it is spent visiting those I never see enough throughout the year, while revisiting all the old favorite locations and discovering new spots as it becomes painfully obvious how quickly “home” is growing without me.

Favorite Restaurant: The classics: Smoky Jon’s - No. 1 BBQ, for the BBQ. New Orleans Take-Out for the Po-Boys, and Culver’s for the Double Deluxe with the works, no onions! Cheese curds instead of fries.

Favorite Bar: Genna’s Cocktail Lounge

Favorite Coffee Spot: Manna Cafe & Bakery

Secret Madison Spot: The drive from the beltline toward downtown on John Nolan Drive is my favorite view of the city. Every time I’m back, I try to make that drive.
