Like our trip in general, our first weekend in Los Angeles was stuffed full day and night. Saturday, we rented bikes at Venice beach and road along the boardwalk towards Santa Monica with stop at Muscle Beach and the Pier. We set up in Santa Monica and spent the afternoon picnicking with red wine & cola, treats and swimming before heading into Hollywood that night to catch ASSSCAT at the UCB Theatre. The show was great! If you're ever in the neighbourhood I would definitely recommend heading over, I'd be there on repeat if I lived in LA.
Sunday, my friend, Terra, took us on her insider tour of the city. We grabbed tacos at mixto in Silver Lake before heading to the hills for sight seeing at the Hollywood sign, Hollywood Reservoir, Silver Lake Reservoir and sneak peeks onto the Warner Brothers lot of the War of the Worlds set. (War of the Worlds?! seriously!? I don't know about you all but that's not a movie I am amped up about). In any case, it was pretty cool to see the lot and giant blue screen. That night we headed over to Meltdown to catch a taping of Harmontown with Dan Harmon, Jitlada for an amazing thai dinner and topped off the night at Oldfields for cocktails.
