Favorite place for a girl’s night out:
CinéBistro Hyde Park. I love the quaint atmosphere. There are many choices to dine, either while watching the show or with the newer restaurants that have opened up. We can pick where to eat and have drinks and conversation before the movie and then zone out and enjoy a drink while watching the show!

Favorite date-night spot:
Our neighborhood bowling center, Pinarama. We have a blast getting a pitcher of beer and just having some good old fun!

Favorite boutique:
Kit’s on Swann. Yasmeen is my stylist and is amazing at picking clothes for my body type – the clothes are amazing.

Favorite spot for a healthy meal:
Village Health Market. I love the prepared foods and salad and soup bar for something healthy.

Favorite dive restaurant:
Big Ray’s Fish Camp. Hands down the best grouper sandwich and Parmesan fries I’ve eaten thus far!

Favorite Italian restaurant:
I’m half Italian, so I’m a huge fan of Donatello.

Best place for wings:
The Dog Saloon on Bay to Bay.

Favorite pizza:
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. I’m obsessed with the Paul & Young Ron, the little meatballs like my grandma used to make with the mix of ricotta cheese! Yum!

Favorite place for a craft cocktail:
Cru Cellars. I love the personalized treatment and choice of wines. The appetizers are delish, as well.

Favorite place to sit with a cup of coffee:
Buddy Brew Coffee in Hyde Park Village. I love sitting outside where the fountain is and enjoying a sugar-free almond milk latte!

Favorite place for a long walk:
From home to Bayshore. It is always so nice and entertaining.

Favorite exercise class or gym:
I enjoy working out at L.A. Fitness Signature Club. I normally do my own high-intensity resistance training workout, and there is always plenty of space. It’s a great facility to work out at.

Favorite park:
We love taking our 14-month-old to Curtis Hixon Park. The wide area for him to zoom around keeps him content and entertained, and then we can pick a place to eat and enjoy a nice relaxing dinner outside.
