Today, Joe and I visited the Americana at Brand in Glendale, which just opened this week. Whew! Talk about a madhouse. Half of the San Fernando Valley showed up. The Americana, which is incredibly reminiscent of The Grove, is actually quite impressive, with a park-like atmosphere and lovely architectural details. I don’t know if I would want to live there (they have both luxury apartments and condos), but it now houses the closest H&M. So, I’ll definitely be back… just on a weekday.
