Continental Art Supply and the Getty Museum

Today we started at Continental Art Supply and the Bead Shop next door; we had lunch at Mort’s Delicatessen, a good lunch spot in the valley. Then we drove down to the Getty Museum to see the exhibition “Heaven, Hell, and Dying Well: Images of Death in the Middle Ages” which was drawn from their […]

The Tim Burton show at LACMA

We went to LACMA to see the Tim Burton show before it left; the show was interesting, but packed – we had to wait 1 1/2 hours to go in, and even then it was hard to get close to objects. There were two rooms dedicated to film props and drawings, and then a few […]

Photos from Pasadena

We decided to bundle up the dogs and go to Pasadena – Aviva noticed a show up at a gallery we hadn’t heard of, she wanted a catalog and you could only get it there. Our first stop was Offramp Gallery, which has a show up of Lisa Adam’s new work, titled “Born This Way.” […]

Pictures from Hollywood

A few pictures from Hollywood yesterday along with a picture of a really good food truck I tried on Wednesday. We first stopped at Wacko, a great fun store and gallery. We also had a great meal at Il Capriccio on Vermont; Aviva’s pasta was clearly handmade, mine perhaps less clearly. Aviva had a squid […]

Solvang, California

We decided to drive out to Solvang, a small town in Santa Barbara county in California. We hoped it would be about 2 hours driving but, with traffic, it took about 3 each way (plus stops for the dogs to stretch, pee and for us to eat lunch). We took the scenic route up the […]

Alessio Bistro Italiano (restaurant review)

We found a new Italian restaurant in our neighborhood, and it’s good! Alessio Bistro Italiano is west of us in West Hills in a strip mall (like so much of this part of southern California) which we hadn’t found before. It’s a dark place inside with a huge bar and a lot of tables. The […]

Schipperke party 2011 (pics + video)

Yesterday was the yearly Los Angeles Schipperke party – last year there were 25 schipps in one backyard – we only stayed for about one and half hours, and we still got to meet a number of dogs, including a young puppy only 4 months old. We had a great time talking with people that […]
