Random Heart

Some images from the couple of days after the Run for the Color, when we returned to the park for our regularly scheduled morning walk/jog.

Does anyone else see a heart in that tire track in the middle of the color leftover from the starting line of the 5K?

After the Dance

After the dance

Louise and I saw a wonderful performance of Bollywood and regional Indian dance given by Karmagraphy at the L.A. Central Library last Sunday.


This is a snippet of one of the dances. So energetic and fun! Made me want to go back  to Zumba.

The whole audience was up and dancing at the end when they showed us a few moves.

Clifton’s Downtown LA Lives!

We took a lunch break while in downtown L.A. for the March for Science to check out Clifton’s cafeteria, which has a long and storied history.  (Click on the link to read more.) The family that owned this place gave away a lot of food from the back of this restaurant during the depression.

I love how they salvaged what they could of the old mosaic floors. Smart!

The decor in the serving line is considerably jazzed up since before the renovation. And so are the prices.  Still, you can get a good sized side of their famous macaroni and cheese for $4.99, which is exactly what I did.

Desserts. Yes. I had pie. Pecan pie.  And limeade.  SO good.

We sat at a nice old dining room table in a little alcove all our own on the second floor, tucked under the stairs.  We could see most of the first floor dining area from there.

Three story high faux tree which houses a fireplace.  Do you need more convincing?

Next time I will sit in this chair. I did sit in several of the chairs made from big slabs of trees.

And yes, there is taxidermy.  There’s a whole buffalo under glass on the second floor. This guy and some others are on the third floor, which is mostly open just for private events.

This place is an L.A. classic.  It’s a three-block walk from the Pershing Square stop on the Metro Red Line.  Want to meet for lunch?
