The secret is out: we've fallen in love with this elegant oasis in the center of town. We're going to sip, explore, and sip some more on a design-focused tour of fashionable Melrose Place. But first: coffee. Let's gather at quaint Alfred for a quick Hairbender, admiring the white subway tile, ebony trim, and reclaimed farmhouse floor. Next we buzz over to a store with zero inventory. Nordstrom Local is a fascinating experiment, and may be the future of retail. Come see what's happening at this chic spot where you can get your suit tailored, your nails manicured, and consult your own personal stylist. WaterWorks is Los Angeles’s premier bath and kitchen studio with a showroom full of design ideas. Come look at Philippe Starck faucets, plush thousand dollar towels, and a million-dollar shiny copper bathtub, perfect for filling with rare Serbian Donkey Milk. We'll check out Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen's luxury brand (pictured above) as we stroll over to the newly-renovated, always-exceptional Fig & Olive for Happy Hour Cocktails. We recommend the SoulFlower, made with Rosemary Honey, Lemon, AquaFaba Foam, and a Lavender Sprig to tantalize and refresh each of your six senses.

Want to explore new works but your friends are too busy texting? Come with us to the cultural hot spot Bergamot Station. Bergamot is a unique collection of fine art galleries nestled in Santa Monica, and has been named "the primary cultural destination on the Westside". Once a trolley stop in 1875, it returned to its Railway roots in 2016 with the opening of the Expo line. Why not leave the car and take the train? Let's jingle our senses like trolley bells with the vast array of artistic expression on display. And we have provisions for the journey! We're bringing wine, and Marina is baking a delicious homemade cake from scratch. We'll provide forks, napkins, not to mention stimulating discussion and great company. The fun begins at 3 pm in the parking lot of Bergamot in front of the Bergamot Cafe, located at exhibit A, where we shall gather and introduce ourselves. We'll wend our way through the different worlds of each gallery, beginning at exhibit A and finishing at exhibit T. Let's learn, relate, and connect to the art, and enjoy each other's perspectives on this journey. We'll cap off the trip in the picnic area to enjoy a glass of wine, a sweet slice of cake and in-depth conversation. Can't wait to see you at Bergamot! Toot toot!
