I know, its a bit early...I'll be meeting some of the LA Arfcommers in a little while, but I thought I should at least post what happened so far....

So, class let out early I figured it was time to go on walkabout. What better place than:



Some VERY nice cars, this one in particular.






Looks like even the high end hotels have the same issues other businesses have



Of course I looked at all the high end name brands

Tiffany & Co




Gucchi




The other Gucci




and of course, Radio shack




Had a bite to eat (pizza by the slice for rich people tastes the same). Then went for a drive around Beverly Hills



Saw a lot of "starter homes"





All of which got me thinking. "Where is the Playboy Mansion?" So I began my quest. Looked up the mansion on my blackberry, no results except for the address to Playboy Studios in Santa Monica. Well, good enough, Lets go!

Nope, not quite it, but I marked the location for 1Gr



Almost, This would be the Larry Flynt Publications building





Well, I never found it. Passed by MGM, Paramount, Sony, etc etc etc, where Playboy was SUPPOSED to be, was a catholic school. Coincidence? I think not! Hippynik suggests that it may be a front. Anywhoo, with that letdown, time to go home. Traffic yet again sucked.




But was definately entertaining at times. Check out the lift on this bad boy:

If I were a rich bastard, I would tip the scab bellhops with $100's just to piss off the strikers and CavVet.

Here's what Google told me.

The address is 10236 Charing Cross Road, which is only five minutes drive from UCLA. Head east along West Sunset Boulevard, turn right into South Mapleton Drive and then make a left into Charing Cross Road.

So I went ot meet the Cali "crew".....at a pub up by UCLA. I'm standing out in front finishing my smoke and a guy walks up to me and says "does the phrase "get both" mean anything to you?".

Mall-ninja everybody!

well, he's the only one of the crew that decided to show up. had a good time BSing about BS in particular. Someday I'll meet the rest. He has been instructed to attend an LCR. We'll see. I'm sure he'd love to shoot an ar that doesn't have a horizontal tampon for a pistol grip.

Time to check out the hotel bar again. G'NIGHT folks!

I met Hef and about 8 of the girls at Halloween Haunt last year. Looked like somebody used a cookie cutter. All long blonde hair, all the same shade, all top heavy and all came up to about my shoulder in height.

But I would make the sacrifice if I had too.

I was going to say you need to go to the Griffith Observatory, but it's closed.
Have you made it to Venice Beach yet?
