Per usual, we’ve been having some hot and cold weather here in Los Angeles.
Brandon and I had just finished having brunch: some homemade shit and tamales from the tamale man on my street. We were working up a sweat from the heat inside my apartment and were looking up places on Yelp. After quite a bit of scrolling, we came across Cold Rush. I ordered the Matcha Special (shave ice, matcha, adzuki [or adzuki] bean, and ice cream), and Brandon ordered the Yuzu & Mint Mojito. Just as a heads up: Marukai will validate parking with a minimum purchase of $20, and unfortunately, Cold Rush does not validate parking. You might be better off looking for a space at a meter.
The gentleman who prepared our desserts was nice enough to bring out our order to us (instead of us going back inside to get it). Brandon and I said we’d come here again. Shortly after we said that to each other, the dude who helped us brought a punch card to where we were sitting outside. The two gentlemen there were quite friendly, so we gotta go back and that punch card filleddd!
Twenty-six came and went. Here’s to another year of life.
Plenty has happened since my last birthday: a new job, new apartment, and other new opportunities. I’m not going to get all sappy and cheesy, but here’s to being blessed with another year and wishes for many more!

I finally made my way to Zinc Café in the Arts District.
I’ve been eying this place for a while now. Tiffany and I decided to grab a quick bite where I ordered the gluten-free Blanco Pizza with Greens. Tiff ordered a cup of chili and a cup of hot chocolate (because it was a little chilly). There was a bit of a delay on her hot chocolate because they were out of whipped cream and had to make more. Aside from the delay on that, I would come here again to experiment more of the menu
Check it out for yourself. It’s just off Matteo and Willow.
