With our sandy beaches and over 300 days of sunshine, Santa Monica is not often confused for anywhere in England. And perhaps that’s why our beautiful shores are like a tractor beam for many UK expats — in fact, Santa Monica is known for having one of the largest British expat communities in the country...

I've always followed a rule my dad taught me that you should eat oysters in the months that have the letter "r." And so each year, as summer winds down and the leaves start to fall, I think about oysters. Salty and succulent, nothing tastes more like the place where they came from. Fortunately, I'm spoiled for choice when it comes to oyster haunts in and...
