Just as I was finally getting used to writing 2022 down, the year is already coming to an end. 2020 and 2021 seemed to take forever, but the past year went by in an instant. It was an extremely busy time with a return to the workplace for many of us, along with in-person events and gatherings—just in time for the holidays!
If you’re feeling behind on your Christmas shopping, check out our holiday guide which highlights a variety of gifts that are perfect for everyone on your list. If you prefer experiences over material items, there’s nothing better than gifting a spa service to a loved one (or yourself) from our roundup of local spas and wellness studios across the Westside.
In our November/December issue we feature entrepreneur Janylle Radden, who suffered from nut allergies and decided to create MenuMD, a website and app that helps people with food allergies and dietary restrictions eat safely at restaurants. We also chatted with local musician Danny Lidgi (aka Mr. Opposite) about his new single and music video.
In addition, we highlight two local organizations that are working hard to preserve and highlight the history of Playa Vista and the surrounding area. One is the Playa Vista Institute, which recently debuted a historical documentary that goes through Playa Vista’s history back to the Native Americans who occupied the Ballona Wetlands before Spanish settlements. The Westchester/Playa Historical Society provides educational and research opportunities to the community through various exhibitions and events, and is holding a special raffle to win one of the historical candles of Westchester (winner to be announced on Dec. 5.)
Whether you’re traveling to spend time with family this year or staying cozy at home, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and an amazing New Year. See you in 2023!
