Fast Food Restaurant

“Café meets bar meets coffee shop. We love this place and the family that owns it is just amazing. Plus, it’s across the street! Try the Doc’s Choice an amazing hot turkey sandwich on a pretzel bun and the omelet bar on the weekends! It’s a great spot to hang out and do some work or to listen to live music on the weekends. Getting there: From the drive way turn right (west) on Almeria. Make a left onto 3rd Ave. Walk one block. Cross McDowell at the light. Hob Nobs is on the corner of McDowell and 3rd Ave. on the left.”

Grocery Store

“Aaah, Whole Paycheck! You know you love to shop here (just as much as I do.). Go on and give JB the rest of your money (you get Prime Video free; it's worth it) so he can chase hot LA reporters in his Gulfstream 650 jet. On a hot summer's day, there is no better place to enjoy the Earth destroying chemicals and petro wasting phenomenon known as Air Conditioning. And God bless it. Why the hell do you think we live in the desert? The smoothies suck . . . into your straw so . . . smoothly. ”
