One of the best parts of the Christmas holidays is catching up with old friends.
Last night I caught up with one of my very best friends over drinks at The Cat & Fiddle, a Hollywood pub. Part of Casablanca was filmed there, so it was an appropriate place to go with Grant--who I met when he was in film school.
In downtown Los Angeles, years ago, we met while working as editorial assistants at the Los Angeles Times. Today, we're still young, thirsty female journalists, on various paths of life (Chau in Silver Lake and Leslie in Brooklyn), here to deliver our best finds from this city and beyond, via the BEAT of young los angeles. Get comfortable and stay a while. Check back often!
