"What is the Grilled Cheese Invitational?" you ask. Quite simply, it's a celebration of this adored sammich. Perhaps you snacked on them during schoolyard days, smashed in Ziploc bags. Or packed them for lunch alongside a thermos of canned tomato soup before heading off to work. Either way, there is... Continue reading

Olvera Street is in the oldest part of Downtown Los Angeles and has been designated as a California State Historical Landmark. Truth be told, I never really took the time to explore this center. Bear in mind that Downtown Los Angeles has seen a revival of sorts just within the past five years; I was busy attending college in Chicago to really take notice until now. My focus was never directed at the downtown area, mostly due to the fact that it was largely a developing neighborhood. Continue reading

It’s passing strange that I can mark certain milestones in my life with the evolutionary trajectory of the video game industry. Like a lot of video game enthusiasts, I was weaned on consoles at an early age. I was five-years-old when I was first introduced to Nintendo and played Super Mario Bros. 3. (I’m still a fan of the Tanooki suit!) Slowly, it evolved from there. Super Nintendo succumbed to SEGA Genesis. SEGA Genesis gave way to Nintendo 64. Don’t misunderstand me. Super Mario World is still on my all-time favorites list; few have come close to dethroning the mighty 16-bit game. But the real kicker came with the unveiling of the PlayStation. Sony changed the landscape for me. It was a life defining moment. The industry had grown up. As sentimental as it sounds, I witnessed the industry mature into the behemoth it is today.
