Saturday


The Guillermo Del Toro exhibit, At Home With Monsters, is now on view at LACMA, but please keep in mind that this is a specially ticketed event.  You will have to purchase a ticket for this exhibit, which gives you access to other LACMA exhibits as well.  I suggest buying tickets online, as you will have to pick a date and a time slot, since it is very popular.  More info here.

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, with clear blue skies, but not hot at all.  The weather in L.A. was cooler than normal, but it was perfect.  It definitely felt like summer was ending, but I am so excited for fall.  We got in line for the Guillermo Del Toro exhibit, but the line moved quickly and we were in.  It was pretty crowded, but we managed to check out the entire exhibit.  There was a lot to see.  Below pictures are just a small taste of what you will find.  Also, there are way more creepier works, but you have to go see yourself to really see all the details, etc. Overall, I really enjoyed it.  



















We had lunch at the LACMA cafe.  It was delicious.  These were the lunch specials of the day.  Then we walked around to the other exhibits like contemporary artist Agnes Martin, checked out the Levitation rock, played with the spaghetti, and ended the day at the cafe (I had a Lemongrass Green Iced Tea, and my friend had a cappuccino).






It felt great to be about again.  This year has been a little weird for me.  I haven't really been out and enjoying life for various reasons.  But it did feel awesome to see my friend again and catch up and enjoy this beautiful weather and see lots of art.  I also really miss taking pictures and blogging so I hope you enjoyed this post.  Thanks for stopping by.

The beauty of my sun is setting





Busy summer.  At least I ate yummy food.  Currently listening to "Pentecost" by Kyle Craft.

Cruisin' around in my GTO


I don't know much about cars but I can definitely appreciate classic cars because they look so cinematic.  And I do love me some Cadillacs, Fords, particularly the T-birds and the Mustangs.  The Surfaris performed on the main stage, set included some of my faves like Walk Don't Run, Surfin' Bird, Sleepwalk, and, of course, their classic hit "Wipe Out".  It was a perfect summer evening.

Let's take life and slow it down incredibly slow






The Line Hotel used to be a Radisson Hotel.  Way back in the 90s when I was a teenager, my friends and I once hung out in the hotel lobby in hopes of meeting some Kpop singers that were in town for a concert in L.A.  We were lucky enough that they magically did appear and we got to hang out and take pictures and chat.  I am pretty old.  I even remember my outfit which consisted of a Nike windbreaker jacket and Adidas mini backpack.  So when I went to The Line Hotel to have lunch at Commissary, it brought back some old memories of my youth but it was refreshing to see the changes, it certainly is an upgrade.  I had the shrimp po' boy and it was absolutely delicious, I still dream about it.  The charred broccolini with quinoa was also amazing.  It's really a beautiful restaurant.  The cafe in the lobby also has quite tasty carbs and drinks.  Poketo can also be found in the lobby.  They have super cute giftable items.  If you are in town, you should check out this place.
