Carmel Carlton, Director of Merchandising
Where to escape to: Sausalito, California
What to do: "Go to Cronkhite Beach and watch the surfers, hike the Marin Headlands and walk along the Bay in Sausalito. Or you can drink rosé and play bocce ball at Bar Bocce along the Bay while watching boats and the occasional seal float by."
Where to eat and drink: "Sushi Ran has the best sushi outside of Japan! Drink an oyster shooter martini, because it's crazy—fish eggs, oyster and alcohol. Eat omakase sushi—the chef's choice. It's all good."
Samuel Ku, President and Creative Director
Where to escape to: Big Sur, California
What to do: "Stay at Post Ranch Inn, go for a hike and see McWay Falls. Drive along the coast on CA–1 for the most epic views in all of the U.S., and stop for a picture on Bixby Bridge."
Where to eat and drink: "Breakfast, lunch and dinner at Big Sur Bakery. It's that good."
Jessica Debreceni, PR Manager
Where to escape to: Venice, California
What to do: "Go spend the day at the beach and boardwalk, then make your way to Abbot Kinney Blvd., where there are great shops and dining."
Where to eat and drink: "My absolute favorite restaurant Gjelina is on Abbot Kinney. I'm a bit of a pizza snob, and I have to say their pizza is one of the best! Tehn for dessert, walk down the block to Salt & Straw. It's a Portland–based ice cream shop. They have the most interesting flavor combinations that are rich and creamy and will satisfy anyone's sweet tooth. They have vegan options, too!"
