Ebony, Michael and me in front of Glauman's Chinese Theatre (my head looks ginormous!)
My sister wanted to see celebrities so badly while she was there. I tried telling her we wouldn't find any at the tourist spots. We did end up going to a bar in Hollywood where shots were 10 bucks! A little rich for my blood. Next door was an S&M club where you got in free if you dressed in black.
Met up with a friend from high school, Akemie, and I hadn't seen her in 10 years!
We stayed at the bar for a while. It was fun and the first time all of us were of age. My brother was checking out girls. This made me want to vomit.
My brother and husband drunk
We also managed to go to some restaurants. On Saturday we went to Cinnamon. It's a Mexican restaurant. My brother and I ordered chickn fajitas. My husband, Era, ordered the mango "salmon" and my sister ordered hummus. Yes. Hummus in a Mexican restaurant.
My fajitas with black beans and rice
We dropped my brother and sister off on Sunday morning and went to eat at Vegan Village Cafe. They specialize in Mexican and Soul food. I will post a review tomorrow. SO GOOD.
The Soul Plate (greens, sweet potatoes, corn, fried chikn)
Era got the Sampler Plate (greens, sweet potatoes, bbq tofu, hot wingz, cajun shrimp)
We also did some shopping. Went to Locali and Figueroa Produce Market in search of Sheese. No luck! I did pick up some Dandies (ZOMG!), soya bleu, cashew spreads, and tamarind paste.
Raw Cashew Spreads
We had a fun weekend in LA and now I totally miss my family even more. Plus, it was awesome being in a city with something going on. Such a great way to begin my 27th year.
