This is the place you could go with or without friends, with or without a mobile phone or a computer, with or without any point at all, and you will totally feel Home.

As I am typing this, I am really craving one of those delicious cheese rolls that my friend introduced me to when I first came over here! Along with many other things I fell in love with, I decided to stay in Glendale and call it Home. Don't be put off with the line of people through the door though, just say hello to a stranger, but be cautious as you can easily end up paying for their order and become lifelong friends! This is Glendale!

Drinks & Nightlife
I have seen people lined up in front of this night club every time i walk my dog up and down the Brand. I assume there are some wild parties, but they don't allow dinosaurs so as you can imagine, I have never been inside this place and for now I have no intention to. I have had enough of wild clubs at my doorstep over in London so i have temporarily retired myself from this luxury!

This is the place to visit if you are a fan of a Neon Art. Neon lighting consists of brightly glowing, electrified glass tubes or bulbs that contain rarefied neon or other gases. They don't have these kind of museum in many countries, so I suggest that art lovers take advantage of this learning resource. They have an exhibition called "She Bends" up until Feb 2018. Naughty boys - stay away!

Shopping
This is the fourth largest shopping mall in the entire Los Angeles County. If you walk around the vibrant department stores, little shops, cafes and restaurants spread across the 3 storeys and you still haven't found what you were looking for, you're in trouble! If however you found everything you needed, you are going to need some extra hands to carry massive bags to your car! I normally call Uber even though I am only 5 min walk away. Oh sorry, I actually call Uber XXL.

You would find different boutique stores, little shops, cafes and restaurants scattered along The Brand. It's one of the cleanest and most vibrant boulevards in the Los Angeles county. It has so much to offer that you would want to simply take a stroll up and down this street to experience the real Glendale and its beauty. If you happen to pass by In-N-Out Burger and Red Benson happens to be playing and singing his guitar, make sure you drop a dollar for him and say hello from me. His music and voice will take your breath away, he is a Vietnam Vet! If you cross the street to Americana and see Pietro Nicassio and his son Michael playing beautiful cello, Smile, it's more than a dollar!

This is the nearest grocery store, a few minutes walk from our flat. It is owned by Armenians from Iran so every time I visited them for errands like groceries or laundry, Marley had to be tied outside. Dogs are considered as dirty animals in the Muslim religion, where many Christian Armenians were raised and it doesn't matter if Marley looked white, he still couldn't go in so I always used to do my shopping super quick here! Pool little doggie has since passed away in May 2018. They have some healthy food and drinks choices, many of them imported from Armenia and people are very nice and friendly.

They don't have great reviews on Google, but they are the nearest dry clean, a few min walk from us. I don't really do any dry cleaning because of all the chemicals they use, but this is a quick fix for your laundry & cleaning needs in case my washing machine doesn't do a good enough job for you. Make sure you show them the label though, because some items are for specialist dry clean and it's impossible to fix things once the damage is done to your vintage Prada suite let's say!

If you like shopping for groceries from a classic American supermarket, Trader Joe's is the place to go. About 7-10 min walk from our flat. It was founded by an American entrepreneur Joe Coulombe in 1967. They have a wide selection of wines, food and drinks and it's a great spot for some last minute shopping.

If you are staying at my flat for over a week or two, have some friends or family to host for a BBQ or if you just wish to get a few items in bulk, Costco is a good place to go. They require a membership card which is about $50 for a basic membership and about $100 for an executive one but it could be well worth it since you could use that card to shop at Costcos throughout the States and worldwide as well as take advantage of some great online deals. If you plan a holiday to African Safari or Disneyland let's say, you might want to check out Costco Travel. You'd be surprised at how much you can save and they will even send you rebates annually!

If you happen to be an avid chess player, I have a small chess board with figures at the flat, however, you might wish to pay a visit to this small chess park to compete with like-minded players. Armenians in the area happen to be excellent at chess so they have set up this park with stone tables and chairs to welcome players from all walks of life and encourage community interaction.

There are also multiple pet stations. Neighbours from the surrounding areas get together in this mini park with their kids, friends, family and pets to chill out, socialise, play and relax.
