Dude, Like, I'm in California

Okay, so I'm on the road this week. I thought we were going to leave today, but we decided to go to Vegas so we didn't have to drive for twelve straight hours.

Plus, I love Las Vegas, so there's that too.

If you happen to find yourself near the San Diego area, I'd love to meet you at one of my events! I'll be at Mysterious Galaxy on Wednesday night at 7 PM. Then, on Thursday, I'll be at the Oceanside Barnes & Noble at 6 PM. Full addresses are available on my "Appearances" page.

Both events are with the lovely and amazing Jessi Kirby (MOONGLASS), Kirsten Hubbard (LIKE MANDARIN), and John Corey Whaley (WHERE THINGS COME BACK).

Because of this epicness, I won't be blogging this week. Hope you have a good one!

So, are you a big Vegas fan? Or California? Where do I need to eat and/or visit while I'm here?

Sorry, but I've never been to Vegas. Have an awesome trip. Wish I loved there so I could go.

Mary Lindsey said...

Sounds like a blast. What a great group. Have fun.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hope it's a successful trip! I like Vegas but not a fan of California. Too many people.

Kittie Howard said...

Enjoy your events! Hope there's a huge turnout. I haven't been to Vegas in a while - but fondly remember the breakfast buffet at Caesar's.

Miranda Hardy said...

Never been to Vegas or California. Would love to go to both one day. Hope you have a fantastic time out there this week.

Dang. I'm going to be in San Diego meeting Shannon and Andrew and others in two weeks. What a shame I'll miss meeting you.

One day.

Have a great time! :)

I have some friends that live in Vegas, but sadly I've never visited yet. I need to though.

Ps. I emailed you those pictures from this weekend:)

Have another great book signing week!

Can't wait to see you in my neck of the woods!

I've never been to Vegas. I know. I'm lame. But I hear it's a wild and crazy place that everyone should visit at least once. I like California. I'd skated a few marathons in that state. Nice...Long Beach was fun.

I'll stick to the desert for now. The nice fall weather is rolling in so it's beautiful here. Come on over, any time. :)

People will tell you In'n'Out Burger, and if you like fast food burgers, that's the place. But if you want the best burgers in the world, find a place called Hodad's in San Diego. It'll be worth it.

K.T. Hanna said...

Have fun! I wish I lived close enough to come take part in the events!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Have the BEST time EVER!!! I hope you enjoy every second of it, my friend! :-)

Slamdunk said...

Enjoy the warm sunshine there Elana. I was born in Cali, but have not been back in many years.

Leigh Ann said...

*jealous* (It's chilly here.)

Have so much fun, good luck!

Patti said...

Have a great trip. Wish I was in California, it would be a lot warmer than here.

Emily said...

Wish you were coming to northern California, I'd come see you in a heartbeat. Have fun! If you ever come to northern Cali, I'll take you out to dinner!

Sarah Allen said...

OMG, ok, if you're in vegas you HAVE to stop at Serendipity3 outside Caesar's Palace and get a fried oreo shake. I know, I know, its a heart attack in a glass, but get it to share and just have one bite. It is SOOOO WORTH IT!!

Have a great time Elana!

Have a great, fantastic time!

Buffets in Vegas!

Don't know what the weather's like in San Diego, but it's been hot up near LA. If you must do one thing in California, it is eat at In-n-Out! :)

Abby said...

I WISH I was in the San Diego area. Still... I am glad that I got to meet you this weekend in Logan. You are TOO cute and TOO sweet! Loved every minute of it. New cover is fabulous! Have a fun trip!

Martha Ramirez said...

LOVE Vegas! Hope you have a blast. Must visit the Bellagio and Venetian:)

I wish I was closer to SD. I'm 7 hrs away. It would have been great to meet you!

Holly L'Oiseau said...

I've always wanted to go to Vegas! Have fun!

Angie said...

I love Las Vegas! I went to high school there, got married there, and had my last child there--though that one was by accident. I hope your trip is fantastic!

Jemi Fraser said...

So much fun!!! I hope you have a fabulous time! I haven't been to either place - too far away for me! :)

Jessie Humphries said...

Dude! You were in Vegas. My turf. I am totally going to Huntington Beach Thursday, but you are down the coast in Oceanside. That is a good hour away or I'd come. Look at us passing in the night...like ships:). Have fun at your signings. You're a rockstar.

ali cross said...

Hurray for road trips! Hope the fans in CA take advantage of your visit there! Safe travels!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Vegas is so much fun...funny, I can't remember much of it?????

Have a great time on your tour. How cool is that? Your tour!

Jimmy Buffet's place is fun... and on the strip.

Amy Richardson said...

I don't have any recommendations for places to eat but I'm so excited for you! Have fun!!!

Heather said...

Have fun! I love Northern California, the mountains and trees are beautiful. The rest of it, not so much, too many people. Unless I'm taking in a Raiders game... Take pictures for us!

Theresa Milstein said...

Have fun! Can't wait to hear all about it.

I've never been to California, so I can't make any recommendations. Sorry!

Carolyn V said...

Aw! I hope you are having a great time!

Stacy Henrie said...

I love California! Run in the sand and take a big swiff of salty air for me. :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

Fun! I love the San Diego area. If you have a chance you have to do the Zoo. Amazing!

Jen Daiker said...

I AM SO SO JEALOUS of all those in California. If you're ever in Houston PLEASE let me know. We must meet. Cuz I like you that much. Like a lot a lot.

Megan said...

I admit, I know very little about Vegas. Or about California. But I do know that there's supposedly a hotel that has a roller coaster inside. And you should definitely just eat while watching that. Because no matter how it ends, that'll be a good story.

Chris said...

I read that The Heart Attack Grill just relocated to Las Vegas, Freemont St., I believe. Dr. Jon had to close the AZ location due to pressure from the community. Looks like a fun place to visit once in your life.

I hope you're having fun!

Dawn Kurtagich said...

Would love to visit Vegas!

Leslie Rose said...

Vegas is like real-time theatre of the absurd. I can't get enough of it. Plus, I'm addicted to the LORD OF THE RINGS slots.
