We’re trying to find my brother something here. And Marko steals Alex’s underwear. I don’t always. I’m accused of it. We do laundry together; they get mixed up. Thank you. Throw me under the bus, Carrie. What’s up guys? Welcome back to Vagabrothers Right now we are in Venice Beach, California on Abbot Kinney Street. What are we up to today? Well we’re here with Carrie Rad. Hello My lovely girlfriend. Hey guys. And we’re going to go try to find some shop. We’re doing a shopping challenge. The goal is we’re each going to have 50 bucks, and we’ll see who can buy the coolest things for each other with 50 bucks on Abbott Kinney, which is not easy because there’s a lot of high price shops here. We’re going to start off with lunch at a our favorite restaurant, Gjelina. Always a line here, so it’s smart to make a reservation, and they can text you in 20 minutes when it’s ready. Going to go for the Japanese sweet potato with jalapeno yogurt and scallions. OK. The charred brussels sprouts and the tuna salad. The main course we have is roasted chicken with a little sauce. The pizzas here are great. We got the mushroom truffle goat cheese which is just like a trifecta of my favorite things. Everything looks absolutely amazing. The pizzas here, like Marko said, are incredible, but anything with truffle oil and goat cheese is like a guaranteed, winning combination. Lunch was great, but now we’ve come up with the formula for what’s going to happen. What’s going to happen ? Basically we’ve got 45 minutes each. We’ve got 50 bucks, which is not a lot..a stretch on Abbott Kinney. We’re all going to get gifts for each other. We thought this out; you’ve drawn up a diagram. Want to see my diagram? Diagrams help. We pretty much want to buy each other things. So I guess I’m up first. I’m shopping for Carrie, my girlfriend. I have a pretty good plan of what I want to do, and I know that there’s this cool little shop down the street that might have exactly what I’m looking for. Let’s go. What’s this? Brazilian bum bum cream. Helps posteriors look and feel and feel their smoothest. Do you know how much this bum bum cream is? So I have purchased a gift, comes in a big bag, but it’s small and carry -on approved. Got the Malin-Goetz fruit facial cleanser, bergamont bodywash vitamin B body moisture, peppermint shampoo and cilantro hair conditioner $32. After tax, I have seventeen dollars and thirty cents left in my pocket. I’m going to head over to this garden shop and see if I can’t get her a little succulent because Carrie loves miniature things. I did that one last night. That’s beautiful. Seven dollars, a great piece of artwork done. 50 bucks on the spot…on the dot. Thank you. Have a good afternoon. We didn’t know the story behind Venice. Originally, this place was built to be like Venice, Italy. This street here was a canal, as were many here in Venice. It got filled in later in the ‘ 40s , I think . Abbott Kinney has gone through a lot of evolution, from kind of a seedy place in the ’70s , to now one of the most trendy spots. All these stores are super expensive. So the challenge is really going to be to find something affordable. We are at Intelligentsia on Abbott Kinney, one of the better coffee shops in Venice. There’s quite a few. Carrie’s favorite. Intelligentsia is amazing all over L.A., started in Chicago so good. My shopping or Carrie has been completed. Now Carrie and I are going to take off and shop for Marko. Good luck. What’s the plan? Where are we going? What do you think? You’re his brother. You’ve know him for 30 years. No, you’ve know him for 28. Where are we going? Almost 29. We’re getting up there. Let’s do this. There’s a book shop down there that I think would be good I don’t know . I feel like he’s such a book guy, but don’t you feel he has so many books? What does your brother use right now for a wallet? It’s bad. The wallet situation is old…yeah, it was cool. Actually I’m using the same one. We got it at Buffer Festival two years ago I’m so excited right now. We just found a gift that we can initial. And it took 10 minutes. Also has a lifetime guarantee, too. Awesome. Perfect. What are the initials? M.R.A. So good. One more time. I was expecting an ice cream truck, but… Salt and Straw. It’s got some incredible gelato. The lavander…so good. Lavender and honey, isn’t it? Honestly, the hardest thing here is choosing a flavor. Luckily, they let you sample pretty much every single one, and then after you ask really politely, they usually give you a gigantic scoop. Not official company policy. Peace out. Now it’s time for you. Bye. Ahhhhh. Ok. Let’s go. I really think we should take a look at Scotch and Soda because we know he likes that store a lot. We’ll be able to find something around that he might possibly like. I think that’s a good idea. We just got the gift for Alex. it’s a sweet little shirt; went for one gift instead of many. I think he’ll be happy, and now we’re going to go over and get a little drink of beer here at the sushi bar Fifty dollars on Abbot Kinney, as we have found out, does not go as far as we thought it would, but it can. It can go far; you have to be strategic. I got you a beautiful little succulent purple….. these are the purple species, dark purple. His name is Succulentist Purpolonus Magenta. I got you a bookmark that is hand-drawn ; it’s a piece of art and it was hand drawn by some very colorful friendly locals. Very cool. You’re welcome. And last but not least, I got you this Swedish made…[penis enlarger]…Swedish made… Swedish made….. No. I got you this really nice Swedish beauty kit. It’s all carry-on approved, one ounce. And if you just saw our video on essential packing list, this is actually a good alternative to the triumph and disaster kit that we said. All right, Marko. Now it is your turn. We went to Will Leather Goods. I have seen this shop in Nolita, in New York and really thought it was cool, but I’ve not… Comes in a little box. I’ll allow you to open it. Great things come in little boxes. 3-2-1 Reveal. Oh yes, yes. This is what I was hoping for. Look inside, Bro. Inside? M.R.A. Wow my initials. I had heard about this… that they do custom engraving when you buy it. That’s so cool Final gift is my gift to my brother, Alex. We went to a number of places. We know that your’re a particular person when it comes to gifts. You know what you like; you know what you don’t like. Oh very nice. This took up the whole budget, but I didn’t want to get you something a little extra , which I thought you might like. I appreciate it. This is from right next door. It’ s Stag. I got you scotch-whiskey soaked toothpicks because Alex always likes toothpicks. I do love my toothpicks. I know it’s only five bucks, but I thought this could almost outweigh the shirt in some ways. This is great. Thank you guys. I appreciate it, Brother. Hopefully you guys had some ideas on where to shop in Abbott Kinney. We’ll leave links to all the stores we went to the info box, and hopefully that will help you find a gift for under 50 bucks. Good luck.. apart from that, guys ..if you enjoyed this video, you know what to do: give it a thumbs-up, share it with your friends, and subscribe to Carrie, if you have not already. Thanks, guys. She’s pretty rad. Stay curious, keep exploring, and we’ll see you guys on the road. Peace.
