From the makers of global blockbusters; Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers, Marvel is bringing in a new team to town to save the day–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure that is sure to marvel audiences everywhere. With stars such as Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, and Zoe Saldana it was a no brainer to attend the junket and learn more about all the fun and hard work that went into making this film. Disney and Marvel hosted the press junket for Guardians of the Galaxy. Director James Gunn and actors Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Vin Diesel (Groot), Benicio del Toro (The Collector), and Michael Rooker (Yondu), answered our burning questions.

A New Menu at an American Favorite: Hard Rock Cafe! #ThisIsHardRock

A New Menu at an American Favorite: Hard Rock Cafe!

By Erin

A few short weeks ago I made the trek up to Hollywood in rush hour traffic. Now I wouldn’t make this drive up for just anything, but when you get an invite to an American favorite like the Hard Rock Cafe to check out their new menu, you just can’t say no to that! With other fellow bloggers, press, and staff we went on a royal foodie adventure that would leave us all stuffed and content by the end of the night. I don’t know about anyone else, but I felt like I had to literally roll on out I was so filled to the brim with all of the wonderful offerings we tasted. Take a little look here for yourself! Which ones would you love to try? Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood

Sunday Funday at Sonny’s Hideaway #SummerAtSonnys

By Erin

If you are looking for a new place to try for a wonderful Sunday Brunch; then have I found a place for you! I am always on the lookout for tasty new places for a nice Sunday Brunch, so when I heard from Sonny’s Hideaway in Highland Park to come in and try their new Brunch Menu, I just could not resist. Brunch is happening on Sundays from 11 AM-3 PM; making it a great option for daytime eats and drinks.

With a new chef on board at Sonny’s Hideaway comes a new brunch menu. Chef Alexander Abdel-Monem has added a number of fancy summer dishes to the mix, including ricotta fritters with hazelnut and chocolate, passionfruit custard, chickpea pancakes with tomato, eggplant, swiss chard, cumin and parmesan and bone marrow hash with sriracha. These options happily join other brunch classics like Brioche French toast with cinnamon creme fraiche and fried chicken with poached eggs. Whatever you choose, you are bound to have one delicious meal!Sonnys Hideaway

Chef Alexander Abdel-Monem, the cocktail list for the Sunday Brunch, and also the fun Tiki Tuesday’s that Sonny’s offer! :) Yum!

Cocktail offerings for Sunday Brunch include some spicy Bloody Marys, Hurricanes, The Naughty Professor, and the classic Mimosa, which should all go nicely with any of the sweet or savory dishes.
