Thanks for putting it all into a nice, compact form for me. I was born in Alhambra, raised in Burbank, lived in the Valley as an adult and moved away at 32, to follow love. (my mistake). Someday, I’ll be back: in the meantime, I come back for visits to get my Valley-Burbank-L.A.-beach-all of it fix. I now live in a small western Washington state town and what do I miss most, besides the abundance of great cultural fairs and celebrations? The amazing restaurants - the mom-and-pop storefronts, the food trucks, the little out of the way places where people put their heart and soul into the food, along with all that great, fresh California produce.
