@bulldogge, all this AK chatter reminded me: since you will be staying in Venice, if you/yours like pizza Abbot's Pizza on AK is pretty good.

We're staying right down the street from AK...so no skin off our teeth to swing by.

Assuming Blue Star is consistent with their PDX home location...I will eat too many donuts, next week. Peanut butter powdered, peppered berry jam filled...mmm.

If you are going to eat donuts, at least wash them down with Blue Bottle coffee. Also on Abbott Kinney. Intelligentsia is a cool space to hang out at, but Blue Bottle has better coffee.

Save your Blue Bottle experience for DTLA. They took over the ground floor of the Bradbury Building.

Downtown LA is so weird now.

Buldogge (Mark?), forgot to mention, if you do Gamble House and bits of Pasadena, you MUST drive through South Pasadena (most charming town in LA County) and San Marino (Blue Blood-Ville) to spend half a day at the Huntington Library and Gardens. No question, no argument, it is the loveliest place in all of Southern California.

That does look very pretty! If the weather cooperates, maybe we can fit it in.

Right now, looks like Thursday and Friday should be nice.

Do Chosun Galbee for the architecture. Avoid The Prince.

Or you could forget the reviews and "insider" recommendations and go here:

https://www.yelp.com/biz/moodaepo-ii-los-angeles

You'll see 21 year old Korean kids drive up in Lamborghinis and 21 year old Oaxacan busboys ride up on $50 MTBs. It's real LA.

Since it looks like rain: Peterson Auto Museum, Both Getty Museums, Queen Mary are worth visiting.

This may seem nuts but one of my best visits to Disneyland was on a rainy Thursday. Few people and almost zero lines.

No Disneyland for us.

We landed, finally got the rental ("sweet" upgrade to an Impala ), headed to Venice. Ended up grabbing some tacos and ceviche from a truck on Rose...La Isla Bonita...pretty decent stuff...excellent Buche and Carnitas...they were sold out of Al Pastor and Chicharrones, unfortunately!

Just chilling in the rental now...heading out in the rain for coffee shortly.

Probably had to LACMA and La Brea tomorrow, since it looks like more rain.

Trying to decide if I can fit Korean BBQ in my gut tonight.

Got reservations @ The Eames House Thursday morning.

Weather looks OK for Thurs and Fri.
