Tapena Verdejo is the Spanish answer to a less cirusy Sauvignong Blanc! If you like a light Sauvignon Blanc, but do not care for the citrusy flavors of the Australian Sauvignon Blanks, then here is an alternative solution to a more floral aromatic and less citrusy Sauvignon Blanc.    This is truly a great value for the money. You can buy any this bottle where from $8.99 to $12 a bottle. Robert Parker and his likes have praised this wine as an awesome value for the money. I am not a big White Wine Drinker, but this I must say is worth every dollar or should I say penny for the drop.   This is pale yellow hued wine and has a vibrant nose with an array of aromas of tropical fruits over a backdrop of ripe peaches. Not your average grassy Sauvignon Blanc.   This wine is a Verdejo i.e.: the ...

M-TV Awards 2013 in Culver City, CA Sony Studios is the home of the M-TV Awards!   I was just returning home from a showing in Century City. I love to take the fast  and easy short cut to Marina Del Rey, CA. If you are a local you know I am referring to Culver Blvd. It is better than taking the Freeway.   Needless to say this took my by Sony Studios in Culver City. I was wondering why where there so many young under 20 some people in line that went around two three sides of the Studio?

Outdoor Ice Skating during the winter in Culver City, CA 90230 I have written many a blog posts that there are Four Seasons in California for those non believers and the misinformedJ.  Here is one to refresh your memories (   http://actvra.in/LvV  )     Needless to say I felt that it was time for everyone to see with their own eyes. This winter has been particularly cold for us here in the Greater Los Angeles area. No we did not get too many cold day warnings, never the less there were a few times when the Weather Reporters suggested we bring in our outdoor plants and our pets for the night. I am amazed that people would need to have their pets outdoors, but that is another blog post from your Pet Friendly Realtor. As I was heading to Trader Joe’s in Culver City I saw children and adult...

Culver City has many redevelopment projects scheduled for the coming three years. Most are "mixed use" Retail with Residential above, located on East Washington Boulevard near the new Metro Project. The city plans to address the parking issues for the surrounding Hayden Trac, Blackwelder and other projects by implimenting a Shuttle service to connect the surrounding Business Districts with the Metro. This, along with new parking projects including a :"robotic type" parking system should ease current parking strains. The city wishes to encourage walking and biking rather then car travel in the city. Although Culver City has some of the best downtown parking around (low cost and convenient) we still do not have enough for the growing demand. New Restaurants are slated to join West Culver ...
