Casey's Tavern

A friend recently invited me to join her for a drink at Casey’s Tavern. She told me there would be live jazz music and I love live music so it didn’t take much arm twisting to get me there. I was so surprised when I got there and saw these old guys playing. I’m told some of them were from Johnny Carson’s band on The Tonight Show. Totally believable! They were good – and the place was packed on a Thursday night! The well drinks were only $3. Calls were $6. Gotta love this place. It is Reseda-adjacent. Sherman Way just west of Topanga Blvd. Ran into some of the art crowd who had just finished shutting down the Canoga Art Walk for the summer. (Bring cash – no credit cards.)  I’ll be back!

Busy night at Casey's!

Here is a simple, easy to understand cartoon walking us through the new state insurance exchange system. It is being offered by the Kaiser Foundation.

Beautiful Walkway

This morning I decided to get out of the house and go for a walk. Too much time spent sitting behind the computer, studying for licensing renewals and new certifications, while avoiding the heat, was getting me down. I needed some sunshine – even if it came with 3 digit temperatures! Guess its been a while since I’ve walked around my block because I was very surprised to come upon this cool looking gate just north of Victory Blvd. on Corbin. I felt like I just discovered the Secret Garden! There was beautifully zeriscaped plants and solar powered lights and a lovely paved bike path!  I couldn’t resist, I had to explore…

The West Valley Library, in Reseda

I admit it. I am a regular library user. I enjoy going to our library in Reseda on Vanowen, just east of Tampa. A lot of others agree with me because the tables in there are always occupied.

New business in Loehmann's Plaza

From a distance, it looks like it could be a place for buying shaving kits…

But when you get inside, its a shave ice shop with a fabulous selection of flavorings for the ice!  I had passion fruit and guava ice over coconut ice cream - scrumptious!!!

Be sure to check this place out!   It’s a perfect treat to counter this hot weather we’re having.

I Heart Reseda

Just dropped off a bunch of I Love Reseda bumper stickers at Fab Hot Dogs in Loehmann’s Plaza. Go pick one up – they’re free!!!

Cool (well, Hot really) Job in Reseda

Here’s a cool job. I had the opportunity to photograph this glass blower at work. Who else has a cool job in Reseda that I can photograph?
