Sushi A Go Go – The smallest stall in the Farmers Market offers the best sashimi in town, according to Colby.

The Stinking Rose – This garlic paradise has two locations on the West Coast (Beverly Hills and San Francisco) both offering Californian-Italian fusion cuisine. Colby keeps it simple with the roasted garlic bulbs.

Tortilla Republic – If you like to drink your meals, Colby suggests this Mexican grill and its “tequilera,” servings some of the best margaritas around.

“Escondido Falls in Malibu is a fantastic hiking trail that gets you out of the city and ends with a 70-foot waterfall (but there’s only water during the spring)”

Where to Shop

While he is often seen sans clothing, Colby says Block Party WeHo is  great for underwear and tank tops.

Where to People Watch


St. Felix at Santa Monica and Robertson has a great happy hour and a patio that’s great for evening relaxation and people watching,” says Colby, who also praises West Street Beach in Laguna (above).
