Thanks folks.  Made it to both Sqirl and Woon yesterday -- Sqirl was good, but I wouldn't wait in line for it (there was a line out the door at 3PM in the drizzling rain (do people in LA not have jobs?)), and I really liked the noodles at Woon.

Sneak when are we getting the Vespertine post?


I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Lot of people in LA have downtime between auditions and performances.


Then that happened.

We’re in town August. If we were to get a babysitter, what would be a really nice place to go? Sushi would be especially interesting for us...

It's not sushi, but Bavel was one of the most enjoyable meals I had this year.  (You might have knowledge and experience leading you to call bullshit that I don't have, though.)

Michelin's California guide is crammed with one star sushi restaurants in LA. On the West Side, Mori is dependable.   https://la.eater.com...-stars-2019-map

If you want a less expensive but quality sushi experience, any of the outposts of Sugarfish are reliable.

Curiously, many LA sushi restaurants are owned by Koreans.  https://www.vice.com...r-than-japanese

The photos look really nice but middle eastern would be a hard sell after Easter.

In that case, in the same neighborhood, Wurstküche.  (Oh, I crack myself up.)

I just realised I never gave feedback here. What did we do? We ended up hanging out both days with old friends in Altadena. I bought wine from a nice store in Pasadena on the way, and dinner assembled from whole foods. Their place had a kidney shaped pool (incl. giant inflatable flamingo) and a bunch of cactus plants and is frequently visited by bears. I think we had the perfect LA experience TBH.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

The trip was in August so only a little too late.

I still haven't written up most of my trip in April.  (It weighs on me.)
