... on the road early, in the rain (and they say it never rains in Southern California... right...)
We had an afternoon to kill before our evening flight so we headed towards the Art District of LA and more out of luck thank knowledge ended up on a really cool street full of really cool shops and graffitis..
In Guerilla Atelier we spied our first (and only) celebrity... Corbin Bernsen was buying a black cowboy hat.. (And this is where it's weird... I first 'met' him - in the loosest possible way - in 1988 when me and my American sister were in the crowd scenes of the first Major League movie filmed at the Milwaukee Brewers Stadium. I even got his autograph somewhere in a box).
He then followed us (of course) to lunch in Manuela, a fantastic restaurant we found ourselves in by chance. I had the most delicious BLT salad, and shared a squid dish and a brussels sprouts/fried potatoes/chilli thang with Mr M. Stuffed. Oh and drank my first kombucha pomegranate... very nice.
Poketo was another shop we visited, cute house wares/gifts/jewellery and a few clothes:
Mr M found a couple of really nice shirts in Apolis:
We had a fabulous ice-cream in Salt and Straw, because why not, right?
Bought coasters in Alchemy Works (you can see Mr M in action at the till) and finished the day drooling (oh my what a place... I might paint my whole house black....) in Hammer and Spears. Not even joking.
Yep, we got love.
Time to go home.
