Sunday at Fairfax and Melrose

I may live in Nashville full-time, but my heart is always in Los Angeles.  I actually used to live in the Fairfax neighborhood and it has so much to offer if you only have a day or two to explore. It’s filled with affordable and designer clothing shops , unique gift stores, countless street wear brands, and some of LA’s best restaurants.

HANG: Spend an easy Sunday at the Melrose Trading Post in the parking lot of Fairfax High School. For a $3 entry fee, you can take your pick of vintage t's and jackets, jewelry, refurbished mid century furniture and beautiful succulent arrangements. You are bound to come across something strange at the flea market- like tie-dyed pups.. 

BRUNCH: Stroll down Fairfax to Jon and Vinny's for a unique spin on Avocado Toast, and take a peek inside the wine cellar!

DINNER: Eat at the fabulous Mare, if you can find it! Hidden behind a grilled cheese restaurant on Melrose, this coastal European gem offers a year-round outdoor patio lit by candles and string lights with a tapas-style menu full of farm-to-table offerings, fresh seafood and carefully crafted cocktails to prepare the palette.
