Proof that I have done things in Hollywood besides drink

I'm a blogging fool again today. Not to mention that I started a new blog covering my pub quizzes over at Moe's Pub Quiz. It either rains or pours here people.

Anyhow, here are some shots from this past weekend. Andy, Dave, Maggie and I went up to Hollywood to see Eddie Izzard in concert on Saturday night. While the show was awesome, it wasn't 4th row awesome and the full moon seemed to be reeking havoc on the group collectively. But the next day Andy and I went out to see a few things I've always wanted to see and it was a good time...until 9 o'clock that night when we got a call from Dave and Maggie saying they were in a car accident...but that's a story for another day (they are alright in case you were concerned).

The first place I've always wanted to see was the Hollywood Bowl. I'll give you a hint of why I've always wanted to see the Hollywood Bowl:

Recognize it? If you don't, then you were never a pre-teen girl in the 1980's. It's a scene from 'Some Kind of Wonderful' when Keith takes Amanda to the Hollywood Bowl to give her the diamond earrings. As you can see from the next picture (a.k.a. real life) movies are always better left in the movies. I was so bummed the big white balls were missing. (ha! big white balls)

Not to be deterred, the next place I wanted to go was Griffith Park to see the Griffith Observatory. You know why?

That's right. 'Rebel Without a Cause' bitches. Thankfully the Griffith Observatory did not disappoint. The views were gorgeous, the Observatory was Art Deco cool and best of all, it was all free.

I'm feeling rebel-y already.

Andy's favorite picture as it makes no sense. Right up his alley.

After all that sightseeing, Andy and I were tired and retired to the relaxation which is Saddle Ranch on Sunset where they have a mechanical bull in the middle of the bar and they aren't afraid to use it. Sorry, too dark to get a picture of the bull, but here was outside.

Alright kiddies, I think I've done enough blogging damage on this blog for today.


  1. nice pics, looks great.
    I'd love to check out Griffith, and not Andy Griffith

  2. It was a lot of fun. Wish I had brought our regular camera though. The iPhone just doesn't do it justice.

  3. BH above again. Like the pics by the way.
