Going to California ... help!

Dear Cyber Friends,
     Most of you are likely other food bloggers, happily eating, photographing and writing about food somewhere on this planet. Isn't it nice that as far away as we might be we can still be friends? I am sure you like to travel. I am sure you have been to California. Maybe you live there. Please give me some insider advice.
    First, I need to know where to eat. I will be staying in Santa Monica but working in Malibu, but I have a car and am willing to travel for good grub. Anyone know of any cool underground supper clubs or fun speakeasy type bars to find a perfect cocktail after a long hard shoot? Best Mexican joint? Best pizza? Some fancy higher end places, too since I can expense a few meals here and there.
    I also need to know what to do. I hate touristy things. I like the great outdoors, hiking and fun active things. I love farmer's markets and to do things just a regular person in California would do. Besides drive all around and look hot. Hopefully, I get it together. ;-)
    Any advice would be a great help! And if you are ever in New York, you know who to ask.
Your friend,
Jen

We all know you're going to In-N-Out Burger, so quit pretending with all this foodie talk.

I want advice! Not E-coli! I had theee worst in-and-out burger experience ever. Undercooked meat and all the girls had no shoes on. Ugh!!!

Lunnidi e martidi nun ti partiri.
Mercuri e Joveri nun ti moviri.
Sabbatu d'unni a jhiri si Duminica a viniri?
Monday and Tuesday do not leave.
Wednesday and Thursday do not move.
Where do you want to go an Saturday if you must return on Sunday?
An old Sicilian say that is emblematic old the old fear of any change.

Ewwwww LA! The only good pizza I could find was at Abbot's Pizza in Venice, but Scott just came from from a west coast excursion- he's the guy to ask (http://blog.scottspizzatours.com/).

Have a blast!
