Hallelujah, Dunkin’ Donuts Is Here

Hot and Iced CoffeeOkay, not here, here. But close. The first LA-area Dunkin’ Donuts is scheduled to open at 5AM on September 2 in Santa Monica.

As part of the grand opening celebration, the first 100 people in line will receive a Dunkin’ Donuts tote bag filled with special items and the first person in line will be rewarded with free coffee for one year.

That is actually the kind of thing that the pre-child me would consider standing in line for. As for me now, well, even a new DD in town isn’t enough for me to leave the Bubble on a Tuesday morning (and finding parking there, GAWD) just to get some coffee. (And donuts. People keep talking about the donuts but true Dunkin’ lovers know what’s really important.)

Yeah yeah. Those are tasty, too.

Another cool thing about this opening is that they are giving $5,000 to the LA Food Bank. What a great way to celebrate.

So, anyway. In other news, Baskin Robbins is selling one-scoop ice cream cones for $1.31 on Sunday August 31. Because…heatwave and holiday weekend. Or…ice cream. Nuff said.

Glen Ivy Hot Springs charges admission – more than Magic Mountain – to let you in the gates of this wonderland spa, and while that might seem unusual, well…it is. But it’s worth it. Admission gets you into the Disneyland of spas – a maze of pools, palm trees, treatment rooms, and servers who bring […]

Rug, Reunited. COIT Rug Cleaning Review


Good as new! In 2004 I purchased a beautiful, enormous, and very expensive (to me) area rug for the living room in our house in Northridge. Our couches were red, the walls were a very light peach color, almost white, and the floor was parquet, installed by hand by my husband, in the days before […]

Gone Fishing


Agoura Hills Mom is still here, folks. I haven’t posted in quite a while because I whisked my children off to the East Coast for most of the month of July. Recovering took a while when we came back, but today is that Sunday that is muggy and overcast, and it feels just like New […]
