Brits in LA Pub Quiz is Back!


Meet A Member: Michelle MosczinskyJuly 14, 2017 6:52 pm· Meet Michelle Mosczinsky from Glasgow, Scotland who moved to LA 23 years ago to pursue “a more fabulous life” Was there a particular reason you chose LA? I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I went to primary and part of secondary school there. Growing up we also lived in Spain, Germany, and Jersey in the Channel Islands. From a young age I was quite worldly. Growing up in the era of American TV shows like Dallas, Dynasty, Knotts Landing, etc. America seemed like a glamorous playground of the rich and famous. At the time, the original Beverly Hills 90210 aired on British TV and I watched the show for the first time. I was mesmerized that people actually lived in a place called Beverly Hills. All that sunshine and palm trees. I had just started at Offshore Trust Bank in Jersey and was all set for a career in banking, but honestly, I was bored stiff.  Next thing – a friend of the family offered me a PA position in her Los Angeles office…


Just one Cornetto, give it to me…!
So, yes… this summer ice cream is a thing! I know I know, every summer ice-cream is a thing. But this year, there are more and more parlours opening up in and around LA with flavors that you could never have imagined…until now. So I thought it only fair (and in the name of research, of course) that I go and visit a few of them for you.
Salt & Straw. This place looks to be LA’s hottest ice cream destination right now, if instagram is anything to go by. Located at 829 E 3rd St in Los Angeles with a sister location at 1357 Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice. They have an array of unusual flavors from “Black Olive Brittle” to “Toasted Strawberry”; however my favorite here was just the plain ol’ vanilla. Definitely worth checking out!Carmela Ice Cream, 7920 W 3rd St, Los Angeles. These great purveyors of icy deliciousness are kind enough to sell their wares at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market on Sundays, so I’m able to stock up without traveling too far. My favor…
