“My wife and I have taken frequent road trips in order to ensure our sanity during this tumultuous time,” said actor Gregg Daniel (“True Blood,” “Insecure,” “For Life”). “In all our trips, we wore masks and maintained social distancing. There are several places heading due north we love visiting, especially the coastal communities – Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara. I find it remarkable that not more than 90 miles from Los Angeles (where we reside), you can find yourself in an entirely different atmosphere.” Daniel is one of the stars of “7th and Union,” the boxing film that recently premiered at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.
