Theres lots of places I've been with friends this year and lots of places I've made my Dad take me when he's out here on business, but dates? Well, 2006 was a pretty dry year for this gal... So here are a few date places I've heard about through my friends who actually do things I guess here's my wishlist for 2007...

1. Chateau Marmont: I know, I know, what a cliche, but I think thats the draw right? If the date is going poorly you have a pretty good chance of spotting a celeb and being able to text your BFF about it, thats good enough for me.

2. Katsu-Ya: This sushi place located on Ventura is too good to be true- they have out of this world sushi and creative rolls with all kinds of combos- just make sure you don't go on a first date- big sushi bites and falling rice is the worst.

3. Hugo's: This healthy brunch spot on Santa Monica is a perfect morning after meal venue....

4. Real Food Daily: This is the place I dream of my hippy vegan guitar playing boyfriend who doesn't exist treating me to after his gig.

5. Cafe des Artistes: This is to feel French and Fancy on a night out in Hollywood.

6. Hirozen: A small sushi spot located in a shopping center on Beverly and Orlando with straight forward rolls. My friend saw Anthony Keidis there once. I love him. So I will frequent Hirozen until I see him myself and make him fall in love with me. Is that weird?

7. Amagi's Karaoke: This hole in the wall dive karaoke place (also in a strip mall) has cheap drinks, an ecclectic crowd, and a great songlist. I just want to go get silly with a date here... and sing some Air Supply of course.
