No summer in Los Angeles is complete without going to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl and bringing a picnic to enjoy beforehand. This month we saw Glen Hansard, Iron and Wine, and The Head and the Heart the night after hosting another Supper Club (the first in our new place), and it was amazing. Glen wanted to keep singing, and we wish he could have!
Also, we've been walking to the beach, eating ice cream, scooping up tomatoes at the market, and generally enjoying our new routines. Here are a few of my favorite reads from around the web this month.
How to be a good dinner guest.
