Arts District Drinking & Griffith Park Runnin’

With last week being my return to a regular work schedule (and with no company holidays in sight until Memorial Day), it ended up feeling like a very long week.  This weekend ended up being a lot of fun, although I think I drank more beer than I should have?  This morning was certainly rougher than expected.

As for yesterday, we drove down into the Downtown LA Arts District, which is certainly a very “hip” neighborhood, with it having a ton of hipster bars and restaurants while also nestled up against one of the worst parts of town, Skid Row.  So edgy!  🙂  Anyway, we drove in over the Fourth St bridge and luckily found a parking spot in the lot, and proceeded to enjoy the Brewery offerings.  Of course I drank the beer while Larry just had to deal with me.  It was awesome to get to see the old crew all together again (sans Nicki & Brian though) and it just reminded both Larry & me that we have some fantastic friends – it’s just that we don’t get to see them daily.  🙁  Welcome to the 30s, Tawny!!!

This get-together had been an afternoon affair, so Larry & I ended up getting dinner back close to home at Jax.  The jazz was still fun to listen to, although it had vocals so I think Michancy would have hated it.  There was an amusing woman in front of us at the host desk who was absolutely PISSED that her wishes to be near the music were not conveyed in the reservation.  She demanded to know when she’d get a table and when the host finally guessed an hour after getting badgered by her for that answer, she immediately demanded to know why it would be an hour.  Bitch, STFU.  Anyway, Larry & I didn’t care about being next to the music and got her table.  Food wasn’t all that much to write home about, but it was good enough.

Finally, this morning, we did another Griffith Park run!  I explored a little and ran west initially and discovered the bike path doesn’t go that much further west just yet.  I do know that there are plans to make the path go the entire length of the river, but we’re not there yet.  Thanks again to Fitbit guilt for getting me out on that run.  Here’s hoping to continuing that trend and getting my health in check.
