LOS ANGELES (KABC) --Eye on L.A. is always looking for great stuff that's made in L.A., and this time, they've found a fashion trend that's hot. We've got SpiritHoods, great art from the cardboard artist Calder Greenwood and from glassblowing extraordinaire Cheryl Saban, and yummy snacks from People's Jerky, Spread the Love Peanut Butter and Joy & Sweets.
We also hit up the Arts District Brewery & Skeeball for some fun, and stop by the latest Cavalia show in Irvine, Morongo Casino Resort and Hadley's Orchards for more!
We first heard about him in the documentary "The Cardboard Artist," whose studio is in Downtown L.A. From a giant spider to a wizard, you could run into his amazing pieces of art where and when you least expect it. wildlifecaldergreenwood.wordpress.com
Watch "The Cardboard Artist" documentary produced by Luka Fisher and directed by Matthew Kaundart at: vimeo.com/129654864
We stopped by Cheryl Saban's workspace to see how she creates gorgeous glass blown pieces and learned that she supports many foundations that focus on the betterment and empowerment of women and girls in Los Angeles.
You can stop by her shop on Nemo Street in West Hollywood to see and purchase her gorgeous creations: www.cherylsabandesigns.com or http://inlightii.com/inglas/
SPREAD THE LOVE PEANUT BUTTER
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes... peanut butter?! That's exactly how it happened for local couple Valerie and Zach Fishbain when their wedding favors became their calling card. Now they're making their all-natural peanut butter, which can be found in specialty stores and more. www.spreadthelovepb.com
JOY & SWEETS
Going gluten-free started an adventure into baking that took two local sisters Amanda and Emily Campbell from local farmers markets to their own bakery shop in Culver City. Now they have macarons, cupcakes and more. www.joyandsweets.com
MORONGO CASINO & HADLEY'S ORCHARDS
Hadley's has been around since 1931, and if you've ever driven to Palm Springs, you know exactly where they are. They just remodeled, but they still have all the delicious dried fruits, chocolates (non-GMO) and, of course, date shakes! But they also have fresh baked breads and a deli serving up yummy sandwiches. www.hadleyfruitorchards.com
We had to stop by and see our friends next door at Morongo Casino Resort & Spa while we were at Hadley's. Lucky for us, they showed us their new High Limit Room and we got a lesson in Macau Style Squeeze Bacarat. You can order from their specialty tea room or from their long list of high-end cognacs and brandies, and even order food to enjoy tableside while you play! www.morongocasinoresort.com
It's been seven years since the enchanting equestrian performers of Cavalia captivated L.A. audiences, but now they're back with a show that's more magical then ever! Odysseo is a must-see, playing now through March 13. Click here to learn more.
With one hot following, SpiritHoods are one wild fashion accessory - and they're made right here in L.A.
Oh, and lucky for you, new customers can get a 10 percent discount, just use the code "eyeonla" on their website: www.spirithoods.com
If you love to snack (and who doesn't?), you've got to try People's Jerky made in DTLA since 1929. peopleschoicebeefjerky.com
ARTS DISTRICT BREWERY
It's a brew pub with games and a full line of spirits and craft cocktails. They have ping pong and skeeball that's part of a national league running out of Brooklyn! Sounds like fun to us! Find them in the old Crazy Gideon's electronics store in DTLA. www.artsdistrictbrewing.com
