WHAT DOES YOUR PERFECT DAY IN PLAYA VISTA LOOK LIKE? It would start with the Playa Vista Farmers’ Market on Saturday, then a hike on the LMU trail. I’d follow that with a coffee at Joliet Café & Bar, then a pizza for lunch at Ritrovo or a Chinese chicken salad at Gulp Restaurant & Brew Co. After lunch, I’d go for a game of tennis or pickleball or a hot yoga class at Sweat Yoga. I might get my hair done at Beauty Beach Lounge.
