Around the corner. Makes me think about painting my house.
Rome, cars, Valley Girls, some bon voyage lunches, and More.
Charlieee! This is Charlie in his own house. Josh, Kelly, and Charlie were out here awhile ago and they, along with Nancy, put on a bbq festivo for Such a crowd. It was fab.
Today Nancy did another bbq and the food was OMG delicious. That good. Amazing. Some people just have the gourmet touch and Nancy is one of those people.
At LACMA. This was quite an exhibit – a huge huge body of work. Sooo much work. They said in several of the information panels that he simply works All the time, which seemed obvious. This was just a sampling of his efforts, mostly portraits, and he does know everyone who’s anyone in the art world.
It’s totally worth a visit whether you’re a fan or not. But then Nancy Artz shared her free tickets (thanks Nancy!) and free is almost always worth it.
Brigitte was the docent on Monday and led me on a tour around The Silver Strand, an area in Marina del Rey less than a mile from my mother and both my sisters and yet I had never been there.
We walked up and down the streets and gardens playing judge and jury to the taste of the locals. ‘Nice house but that paint…what Were they thinking?!’
Hey, it’s Jonathan back from Korea and Phil, one of his buddies that I met while I was there (click here to Check Them Out!), and Ben and Bonnie, the Dad and the Mom.
Jonathan and Phil biked up and down Koreatown to pick a restaurant and then Jonathan treated us all to a Korean Feast. What a guy.
Mori Sushi. Sigh. And Nancy treated! *Sigh* What Zagat says and it is 100% true:
“Indulge in the transcendental omakase at this sublime West LA Japanese and let perfectionist master chef Mori Onodera concoct an astounding array of fresh and delicate raw-fish creations, which he serves on ceramic plates he also makes; even in this minimalist setting, worshipers at the shrine of Mori-san (he’s “our hero”) swear it’s worth the splurge to dine at one of the best sushi bars in the city.”
Ljubi was in the hospital for a couple of days and now she’s out. We’re waiting for test results but the current thinking is that ‘a low salt diet’ does NOT mean ‘a no salt diet’ Especially during the summer when the temperature in the valley hovers around 100 on a good day and higher when I happen to be there.
