Rainy Mondays

Good Morning and Happy Martin Luther King Day,

Its a wet one here in Los Angeles, is actually supposed to rain all week. We had a wonderful weekend. Saturday I enjoyed a morning hike, then went downtown Los Angeles to the fashion district. We had a great time and ended up eating at Clifton's Cafeteria. If you have never eaten at Clifton's it is quite an experience and the food is pretty good. Cafeteria style, so it is fun to get a little of this and a little of that. The inside is decorated like the redwood forrest, complete with trees.

Saturday night, we went and met the Grilled Cheese Truck that we follow on Twitter. They are part of the food truck trend to hit Los Angeles and serve yummy comfort food. Grilled Cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, tater tots and all those yummy things. We met up with them on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile and enjoyed a grilled cheese sandwich, some yummy spicy macaroni and cheese and tater tots. This is just what the evening called for, everything was delicious and probably the best tater tots I have ever eaten. I am not sure what they do to make them so yummy, but they should keep it going. The crowd was fun also young and older hipsters. If you get a chance, do enjoy.

I have noticed a new wave of Basquiat like artwork which I am very excited about. Herea rea few examples.

I also noticed this piece on Saturday night while we were enjoying our Grilled Cheese Truck goodness.

Sunday morning I went on a hike with some friends in Griffith Park, it was a great hike with laughs and lots to see.

So, today I am off work and not sure what type of an adventure I will find. It is raining pretty hard, so we will see. Perhaps a baking adventure for today . . . . hmmmm (scratching head) . . . what sounds yummy?

I hope you are well, safe and warm. Best wishes . . . until we meet again.

The rain will make it an honest, true ADVENTURE! And, it's funny, because for the first time in days, it's not raining in Portland this morning. Hehehehe.
