I had the pleasure of going on a double date not too long ago with the homies (fam at this point), Justin and Mariel, and of course, my home girl, MJ. We started the evening off with a huge (YUGE) dinner tasting at The Independence, and finished the night off with a cocktail tasting at Copa D’ Oro. Although it was my first time at The Independence, it surely didn’t disappoint (as you can see). Copa D’ Oro, on the other hand, had to have been visit number 1,000,000. At one point in my life, it was me and my hometown friends’ go-to bar in Santa Monica. In fact, I would argue that it still is for most of us. Till this day, I have no idea how we managed drive home on top of all the food and drinks we had, but I’m here to tell you that it was a dining experience to die for.

2.5 out of 3 FKs were given. 

Shout out to my White Oak fam for making this special evening happen!
