I’m visiting my boyfriend, Bryce, in Los Angeles for two weeks before I move here at the end of December.
I’ve been here for a few days already and we’ve been having a lot of fun. Check out my previous blog to see what we did my first few days here.
On Friday we stayed home most of the day and worked on our resumes. Getting all of my work experience onto one page is super difficult.
Friday night we went to Red Lion, the German restaurant Bryce had wanted to go to on Wednesday, with Bryce’s cousin Doug and his wife Dana. It turned out Red Lion was having a Krampusnacht, so it was really crowded and hard to get a table. We managed to snag one right before St. Nicholas walked in. He just walked around talking to people. However the Krampuses came in after him. We think there were five of them. They wore furry costumes with horns on their masks and bells on their butts and carried brooms that they spanked people with.
On Saturday we went to a gallery opening for Ron English at the Corey Helford Gallery. Miro Hirano also had work featured as part of the exhibition.
After the art show, we went to the Arts District Brewing Co. where we played skeeball. Bryce is very convinced I should like beer, so he got me a nut brown ale, which is not awful. I also did pretty well at skeeball.
On Sunday, Bryce’s cousin George wanted to go see the new Blade Runner movie. I haven’t seen the first one, so Bryce and I watched it in the afternoon before we went to see the new one at the theatre that evening.
Afterward we went to a taco truck called Taco Zone, where George told me to get mulitas de suadero. He didn’t know what kind of meat suadero is, so we looked it up. It is a delicious cut of beef.
