We lived in teh camarillo sunshine apartments for about 4 years - the 2 bedrooms are very spacious - great floor plan - the building is older but there are some plusses to that - the pool is pretty good and best of all they rent a bit below what the going rate is - management is good - the place has a real get to know your neighbor feel - we so enjoyed our time there.
PROS: spacious, good fireplaces
If you're a San Marino resident then you probably already know about this beautiful gem of a park - if not - i'll let you in on thier neighborhood secret - great big green park - tons of palm trees - 2 different trails/tracks for walking, running or biking - great playground for children, and a beautiful rose garden. If you are not a San Marino resident then you have to pay to get in the park on the weekends - entry is free to all on week days - and they have special events here all year long - our favorites are the fireman's pancake breakfast in May and winter in the park in January - they bring in snow for the kids - its' awesome
PROS: very clean, secure, gorgeous rose garden
We went to this park for the first time for a birthday party - it was totally tucked away from any highway - and very little street acces - though the only parking was street parking - it was a lovely park - with lots of trees and we had an absolutely wonderful time - we grilled burgers and played lawn games - the kids had a ball
PROS: great shade trees, secluded
CONS: hard to find street parking
As an actor - Showfax is an invaluable resource - most all agencies recommend them - when you have to get sides for an audition - this is the best place to go. They will fax or email them to you and you can pay per use or you can get a yearly membership. Truly a must for all working actors.
PROS: convenient - online access
If you're new to Hollywood and looking to try your hand in the movies or on TV - this is a great place to start - they cast extras and background performers for both - if you are consistently available when called on to work - you will work more often. They cast both non union and union actors - so even if you have no experience - you can still find yourself on a movie set.
This little shop on woodman has a great selection of yarns - but they really have a great array of needlepoint canvas - many hand painted - just beautiful - i only wish i had the time to actually do one - they offer classes here - and staff is very nice - again - beautiful needlepoint canvases.
PROS: hand painted needlepoint canvas
I love to knit scarfs - for holiday gifts - and this place has the best selection of yarns - really different stuff than you'll find at the bigger stores - my scarfs can be done in the most simple of knitting patterns and they look amazing because of the special yarns i get at the Stitch Cafe - staff is really nice here - would love to try out the classes some time.
My little 5 year old and I went here for a little mommy and me time - we found the cutest animal coffee mugs - we each painted one - had the best time doing so - not very expensive and returned in a few days to pick up our glazed and fired pieces - now our favorite thing to do is to each have a hot chocolate min our animal mugs that we painted ourselves. Thank you staff on Lankershim - you ladies were great!
Lisa Rina - from Day's of our Lives and Dancing with the stars - owns the store and I'm sure that's half the draw for customers to come in - but they do sell a lot of things that you usually have to go to the other side of the hill to find - we appreciate a local - in the valley spot that offers such hip attire and gifts and accesssories.
If you are looking for jeans - this place has them in spades - all the hottest hippest designers - my girlfriend sent me here and to say the least - i dropped a load of cash - but wow - i love my new true religion and 7 jeans - the staff was so nice and they just had so much inventory to choose from
