We started out Friday night with a bang when we arrived at the hotel and they were hosting the Image Awards for the NAACP. We ride up in a rental and work clothes to find a red carpet and everyone in gowns! We immediately rushed out the door to meet our friend Torrie at one of our favorite LA eats: Cube on La Brea. We had a lovely time there as you can order wine now and the cheese menu continues to be off the hook. I had a truffle burger which was delicious. We saw Creepy Ethan from Lost there. Once I saw a celebrity I felt at home. Afterwards we had Torrie back to the hotel where Shawn and I and her decided it was time to take some ExtenZe. Warning: I took it and went to bed. False advertising.
Saturday was a rainy day in Hollywood but definitely not a slow one. We started the day with breakfast with Pam and Lev @ Tres, the hotel restaurant. Included in the gift certificate was $100 a day credit for food and boy did we ever stretch that dollar to the end. We dined on a swanky continental breakfast (both mornings) but I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise AIR. Yes, you heard that correctly. AIR. Molecular Gastronomy Light, Id say.
We finished the night with a drink at Ye Rustic Inn and called it a night! The next day was short and sweet. We hiked Runyon Canyon quickly and I made Shawn eat a Mos salad.
