Sometimes your friends pick you up for a day trip to one of their favorite places, and then you realize you have food poisoning. And sometimes they manage to make it one of your favorite places, too, regardless. Marisa and Jorge have been retreating to Ojai for many years, and they've got it down. They know that the best fancy breakfast (and not-breakfast) sandwiches are at Knead. Some of the very best citrus is at the farmers market. Stops at Bart's Books and Old Creek Ranch Winery keep the vibe mellow, and Los Padres National Forest is the prettiest place to vomit.
