weekend in LA

We landed Friday and had an amazing sushi dinner with my dad.

Saturday I had lunch with some great old friends while Russ met up with some of his old roomies at the beach.  Then we met up, checked into the Georgian, got a snack at the Misfit and walked around the Promenade a bit.

cool old elevator

miss this beautiful place

We used to have 2 friends who worked here so we frequented this place.

The inside is super cool, with an old-school feel

he got a basil gimlet and i got a spiked rosemary lemonade

We went and walked around 3rd street promenade mall.  It has outdoor performers and tons of shops.  Too bad Russ did all the shopping and i sat on the bench and waited.  Weird role reversal!

We met up with one of our favorite couples and had a delicious dinner.  After dinner, we weren't ready to let them go since we see them so rarely, so we went out for some drinks.  We ended up playing a rousing game of quarters and then calling it a night.

We had dinner at Brick and Mortar.  Delicious pizza and baked brie!

Sunday we went back out to my dad's and spent the day loungin' by the pool and relaxing and then a great grilled steak and shrimp dinner.

finally gettin' some summer weather!

Tomorrow I have to drive to downtown LA to go to court.  I am a little nervous for my appearance tomorrow because I think it might end up being contentious and I don't like arguing! (I know I chose the wrong profession)!
