Red Carpet, Red Velvet in Hollywood

Just a few miles from Hollywood’s red carpet bonanza is the other side: my neighborhood of Silver Lake where you can eat fried food, wear shorts and be certain that no one cares about taking your photograph.  Is it a beautiful city, this Hollywood – east side or west?  Nope.  But it has pockets of style, cafe life, and cake shops.

Visit Lark Cake Shop on Sunset Boulevard and they will make you a Red Velvet Cake (or here’s a recipe) among many fine ones.  It’s right next to Heywood: A Gourmet Grilled Cheese Shop where all they sell are grilled cheese sandwiches and drinks to wash them down; and then there is Intelligentsia Coffee – don’t overthink it.
