Ladies’ Day at the Driving Range

Looking for an alternative way to spend time with your fit friends? I’m sharing the details from my fun girl’s date at a Los Angeles driving range.

When my husband has to work on the weekend, I make it a point to clock extra quality time with my gal pals. Since he’s been busy prepping for a big case, this weekend was a marathon of girl bonding.

Saturday was spent catching up with my friend Sara over some drool-worthy ceviche at the new hotspot Verlaine in Beverly Hills.

And Sunday was the ultimate girl’s day out — starting with a fabulous brunch at my favorite vegan restaurant Gracias Madre with a group of my favorite blogger babes, and ending with an afternoon at an LA driving range with my pal Rachael.
