Jason's Activity

ALos Angeles: L.A. beach vacation - best areas and hotels to stay?

You'll definitely want to see Venice Beach. It's not the fanciest beach community in the LA area, but it's the most interesting and certainly the most storied. My favorite hotel in that area is Hotel Erwin​. That's also where we (at Google)... See More

AHow to best overcome jet lag?

I attempt to transition to my destination's time zone as early as possible. Doesn't have to be an immediate shift. Sometimes I'll limit my onboard sleep, waking up while the lights are still out, to improve the likelihood of being able to get to sleep that night.... See More

ALos Angeles: First time in LA! How do I experience it as a young local?

First off, don't bother with the Hollywood sign, Hollywood Boulevard, star maps, the "walk of fame", the sunset strip, Melrose, The Beverly Center, The Grove, or the chinese theater. There's really no reason to visit Hollywood at all unless you're really... See More

ALos Angeles: Eating alone in LA?

I work in Venice and live in Eagle Rock, so I feel your pain. Let's see if I can come up with anything. Eat at the bar at A-Frame​ in Culver City! The food is incredible, as are the drinks, and the bar staff is friendly as all get-out. Father's... See More

QZurich: Eating and drinking in Zurich

I'm in Zurich this week for business and will have my evenings largely to myself (and possibly a few coworkers). What great bars, restaurants and nighttime adventures await me? Budget's not much of a concern, but super-upscale might not be the level of fun we're... See More

ALos Angeles: Business meeting coffee place

If you're willing to venture a neighborhood or two over, you can go to two of the most lauded coffee shops in the state, if not the nation. Intelligentsia​'s Silver Lake​ outpost is hip, comfortable, and has enough (covered)... See More

ADowntown Los Angeles: any good sushi?

Sushi Gen​ might be the best sushi in Little Tokyo. It's a little loud and a little cramped and very authentic, so prepare yourself. Sit at the counter and don't put soy sauce on anything already served with sauce! See More

ASan Francisco: What breakfast spots are must-eat in SF?

I love love love the brunch buffet at Farmerbrown Restaurant​. It's right between Union Square​ and the Tenderloin​, so it's easy to get to (even if those neighborhoods aren't the greatest). If you're... See More

ALos Angeles: What's the trendiest new hotel in Los Angeles on the west side?

Hotel Erwin​ is relatively new to Venice and is located right on the boardwalk. There are lots of beach views and a fantastic rooftop bar. It's an easy walk from Erwin to both the Main Street and Abbot Kinney​ shopping areas. ... See More

QHawaii: Suggestions for a not-too-touristy Hawaiian vacation?

We're pretty flexible and can make our way to any island if properly motivated. What I'm keen to avoid is the Honolulu scene or any super-obvious resorts. See More
