Beverly Hills... that's where I want to be!

"They call Los Angeles the City of Angels. I didn't find it to be that exactly,
but I'll allow as there are some nice folks there."
- The Stranger, The Big Lebowski

Los Angeles is a very interesting city to visit - there is a lot going on, it is very hilly, celebrities live there, and it's hip, hip, hip. We got into L.A. Sunday night, and crashed at our friend Bobbie's place in West Hollywood. Monday was spent touring West Hollywood - we had brunch at Toast (brunch is the new lunch), walked down Robertson Avenue, and had a few drinks at Barney's Beanery, where (apparently) Janis Joplin's car was parked the night she died. Rock and roll history, folks.

Monday evening we met up with old friends Megan and Jared, and everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner at Miceli's in Hollywood.

We spent the night at Megan's place up in "Old Hollywood." Check out her view of the Hollywood sign!

Tuesday morning we hopped in a cab and took it right to the VIP entrance at CBS studios (thanks, Bobbie!) and were treated to a live taping of "The Price is Right"! Neither of us got called up as contestants, but our seats were front and center behind contestant's row (check us out... the show airs October 9th)!

The whole Hollywood crew met up again for dinner (and networking... so LA...) at Lucky Devil, and after some goodbyes, we made our way to Jared's apartment to spend our last night in Los Angeles.
