  • mm hmm.

  • Today we're at the Americana at Brand which is in Glendale California which is basically like Pasadena right?

  • Yeah, it's not far from Pasadena and it's north of like Central L.

  • A.

  • And the reason why it's called the Americana at brand is because we're on brand boulevard.

  • We decided to kind of do a post on this area because when we went to the Grobe, it seems like a couple of years ago already that post, it was pretty popular.

  • People are really interested in what stores are there, what the atmosphere was like.

  • So this location is actually like their sister.

  • Um it's owned by the same person who was Caruso Caruso.

  • And it's basically almost like especially the same but bigger here.

  • It is bigger at first I thought it was smaller but it's actually bigger because here they have over 80 stores.

  • And at the Grove they have about 50 stores.

  • So it's definitely bigger here.

  • Um and they have lots of restaurants.

  • Um you know, lots of Some unique places of stores and cafe they have here like the Amazon four stores stores.

  • So we want to kind of show you today like the stores that are unique here.

  • Of course they have like free people, anthropology Nordstrom.

  • Another thing that's different from this one um that they don't have the grove as they have luxury apartments here.

  • And also condos.

  • So there are people living on this property which I thought was interesting.

  • So when you drive into the parking structure, you'll see like, you know, they'll be parking spot prices for future residents.

  • Um and it's pet friendly just like the other one.

  • So um But just be mindful that there are no like ted weight stations.

  • So remember to bring your own uh waste bags.

  • So parking here they do have self parking garage but it is a little bit expensive.

  • It's $2 for the first hour.

  • And then after that it's $4 for like the next 25 minutes I think.

  • Yeah 75 minutes.

  • And then after that it's like a dollar for every 15 minutes which is pretty pricey.

  • Yeah and then $24 max you can get your parking validated at some select stores which was six.

  • Yeah as of now it's Nordstrom Anthropologie.

  • Apple three people, Barnes and nobles glass tables.

  • Yeah I forgot how to say that.

  • But it's like one of those kitchen gadget stores or if you spend $250 within your visit then the parking is free.

  • You just have to go to the concierge to give your receipts and then they'll validate it for you to have valet parking.

  • But it's obviously it's it's more expensive and that's $30 a day.

  • Also Candy said that there is a mall across the street called what is it called?

  • The Glendale galleria and it's an indoor mall has your typical express LTD like those types of stores or foot lockers.

  • And so don't get confused there parking garage actually you'll see it before americanas but you could park at theirs but I just be warned it's probably gonna be confusing where to exit and then to come over here, although outside it looks super simple but once you get in the structure it's a little confusing.

  • But I mean if you're gonna go to that place anyways, yeah, I mean just it's probably cheaper to park there too and then you can just walk right across the street so yeah.

  • Okay, well we're gonna do some shopping exploring.

  • Yeah, thank you.

  • Mm hmm.

  • I probably did this elevator.

  • Yeah, I was very much, yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh Oh it's so real.

  • This little gazebo is so cute.

  • That's right by the fountain that like styled like a sleeve.

  • That's adorable.

  • Uh huh.

  • You have some bananas.

  • Oh there's the baby bites which was gonna try.

  • Oh that's a hard decision.

  • But they it's not easy to get the let's do the banana bites if you're walking, those sort of small ones are good, but you're gonna sit down and eat it.

  • Right?

  • We got some brownie bites and look at how cute boxes we get excited about.

  • The simplest things.

  • I know.

  • Mhm.

  • Back to you now I'm about to apparently it's like very popular in L.

  • A.

  • Or California.

  • I'm not really sure about to make a big deal about katsuya and I like japanese food of course.

  • So when I tried out for lunch they actually made a reservation ahead of time when I got here.

  • Uh But let's say you don't really need it if they have opened.

  • I believe they open like a 1130 or something like that.

  • Maybe 12.

  • It's a weekday to it's a weekday but I don't actually kind of getting packed right now so yeah.

  • Hi I don't want to get here.

  • Look at the menu.

  • All right so we ended up getting a couple of sushi.

  • Well a sushi roll and Tamargo sushi?

  • And then I also got some fried chicken but we're kind of like um disappointed so far.

  • First the California roll came out and didn't even have the orange smell roll on top.

  • So candy have to ask for it.

  • Apparently I could say they don't do that.

  • Yes, it was nice of him.

  • He was like I can't have him put it on there for you.

  • So thank you.

  • Yeah, so he was very, very kind.

  • And then my time ago it's a store bought.

  • I can tell because I love to Margo and there's only like certain rest japanese restaurants that make it from scratch handmade.

  • And this is definitely not it?

  • I'm sure it tastes fine but I don't know.

  • Just a little disappointed because this is supposed to be like the japanese restaurant so it's like so much hype about this place.

  • Yeah, we thought it was gonna be pretty authentic but so we're not too impressed.

  • Yeah.

  • So how is it?

  • It's good.

  • I'm glad you but I think it's coming.

  • It's not going japanese but it's really crunchy and that's what I really like about the California rolled.

  • But you kind of mind do you get it here?

  • Doesn't actually come with time but the price was good.

  • I like it.

  • Okay, lisa rice is good I guess.

  • Okay so we what's up?

  • Is that you want something to they actually did give you a place setting.

  • How is the time ago?

  • Okay.

  • It was about okay.

  • All right.

  • I don't know.

  • It's not impressed with this place.

  • So this karaoke game, it's called chicken ginger Kadaga.

  • This is actually really good.

  • I like this out of everything that we order.

  • This is my favorite.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • I'm right.

  • Here is are we?

  • Uh huh.

  • You know what numbers?

  • You know?

  • No, a bad guy.

  • That's always getting attention over there.

  • She always gets attention somewhere.

  • And I guess that's what heroes do.

  • Yeah, Jesse Charles are really good.

  • I do have some good books and this amazon store.

  • It's for it's for stars.

  • Yeah, At least four stars.

  • What's in this amazon store?

  • So we're asking the guys like since ratings change all the time.

  • The store updates to the ratings.

  • Yeah.

  • Getting attention.

  • Okay.

  • She loves that.

  • Do you remember when grandpa used to make ice cream in the basement?

  • This is what it was like a real wooden bucket.

  • It wasn't like this fake thing.

  • Remember a big big Yeah.

  • And then you put lots of salt and chunks of salt.

  • Of course the air fryer that both me and candy gave up with after a couple tries.

  • Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of there were not a huge fans.

  • They do have a lot of kitchen stuff.

  • I actually have these.

  • Yeah, I like the officer gripped.

  • Oh, good up organizing your teeth Kennedy's them.

  • Gosh, I didn't eat at a certain point, but I got rid of all of them.

  • Don't drink it.

  • Yes.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Yeah, I think there's some cute ones.

  • They always take my ears itch.

  • Yeah, I can't get just regular hearings.

  • Those are interesting.

  • Mhm.

  • You see it matches your face mask, It's cute.

  • I like it too.

  • If I'm gonna get a bracelet, I'd like to block 200 points.

  • Yeah.

  • Hi Zoe is so tired.

  • She's out.

  • We're almost done baby.

  • We just finds no longer.

  • So we had a good time at the Americana at brand.

  • We stayed there for about four hours total.

  • We couldn't stay a little bit longer, but since we have Zoe the dog with us, we had to keep it a little bit shorter because she was getting hot and the concrete was getting hot so just be aware of that if you're going with your dogs in the summer.

  • Um but yeah, we had some really cool experiences at stores.

  • Um the Samsung one was pretty cool to me just because I'm getting some new Samsung products, so I'm interested in how like all those interconnect and also I love their new flip phone, which is so cool, so he was demonstrating to us how it works.

  • Um some other things that we did were, you know, we checked out some clothing stores, like free people and anthropologie.

  • The first thing we did was we got some vineyards to start off the morning.

  • Yeah, it was so good.

  • The vineyards were awesome.

  • I definitely gotta have more, they deep fry it right there right when you order it so it's fresh, crispy warm.

  • It was delicious.

  • So I really really enjoyed that.

  • Probably would have been even better if I had a cup of coffee with it.

  • Oh yeah sure disappointed with Katsuya, their sushi in particular wasn't great at all and but they're they're chicken was really good.

  • I really like their chicken but little overpriced for what they give.

  • Um I don't know I think it's overhyped to me to us anyway we also went to the Amazon four star store.

  • That's actually a pretty interesting store where they have all the popular items um that's four star, that's rated four stars and above.

  • So if you're looking for some cool gadgets or some um cool gifts, that's like a really cool store to go to.

  • And we did go to one of the stores where they validated our ticket for us.

  • Even with the validation from the store it was still $7 for parking which is pretty expensive when you think that you know anything about like, well I'm just going there for shopping but I still have to pay for parking but I guess that's just like big city life but overall it's a really great place to relax, have fun um You know entertain and it's great for all ages to because we saw families, we saw couples, we saw um people like us with their dogs.
