Ukelele Photo (1 of 1).jpgHello and welcome to The Perfect LA Saturday! My goal is to share my love and passion for Los Angeles with you. Whether you’re born and raised in LA, a recent transplant, or if you’re just visiting our lovely city for a weekend, I’d love for you to join me in enjoying the many experiences that this beautiful city has to offer.

Here’s a little bit about myself. My name is Arinjay. I was born in Pennsylvania but moved to Southern California as a toddler. I lived in the suburbs of Los Angeles until I started my undergrad years at USC. My hobbies include photography, hiking, exercising, reading, writing, watching movies and hanging out with friends (if you count this as a hobby). I also love to travel and explore the hidden gems of every city I visit. Some of my favorite cities that I’ve visited recently are Mexico City, Tokyo, Tallinn and Riga.

During my time at USC, I began to truly understand and appreciate how much there is to do in Los Angeles. While my passion for exploring this city started during college, it really ramped up after I finished school and moved back to the suburbs nearly four years ago. I now find myself in the different neighborhoods of Los Angeles nearly every weekend looking to find something interesting and fun to do.

As you can imagine, living in La La Land means there are an overwhelming number of things to do every day all across the spectrum. You can walk the streets of Hollywood Blvd. and marvel at the stars. You can visit The Museum of Jurassic Technology and learn what it means to experience confusion and fascination simultaneously. You can dress up in your fanciest clothes and visit the Edison and sip on absinthe in a converted power plant. Or you can try, what are in my opinion, the best sausages (vegetarian for me) in Los Angeles at Wurstküche in the Arts District. I could go on and on. Trying to decide what to do on any given day can be intimidating.

My desire for this endeavor is simple: I want to merge my love of Los Angeles and growing love of photography and share it with you.

Now here’s how this is going to work. Once a month, I’ll share a calendar of events that I have planned or places that I’m going to visit for a Saturday two weeks from that date. If you’re the adventurous type and want to explore with me, send me an email at ThePerfectLASaturday@gmail.com and tell me a little bit about yourself and what you love about Los Angeles. I’ll then add you to the mailing list of people who I’ll be sending the calendar of events to. Even if you can only make it out to a part of the day’s activities, it would be great to meet you! If you have ideas for any new adventures, please feel free to email me or share in the comments.

I’m really looking forward to meeting all of you and exploring this amazing city together.

Your friend,
