Afternoon tea is one of my favorite things to do but then when you add a Hello Kitty themed one it’s even better. I was really excited to try it because as a kid I loved Hello Kitty. The Hello Kitty Cafe is located at the Irvine Spectrum. When you walk in there is a small bakery in the front, the afternoon tea is held in The Bow Room which is located behind a cute pink door. The Bow Room is decorated in pink and gold and the bar is adorable it is a brightly lit silhouette of Hello Kitty’s head and famous bow. The Bow Room is so pretty, it’s a dream. The detail in everything is really impressive. I love that everything has the Hello Kitty theme without it being just for kids. This is a great place to come without kids. I highly recommend experiencing afternoon tea…

LA Food and Wine brings all the best chefs together for an exceptional culinary experience. I attended both days at the Lexus Grand Tasting that was held in the Barker Hanger.  Next year I will definitely be going to all events because the Downtown LA looked amazing.  If you…
