East meets West


I have never been a huge fan of Los Angeles. Last time I was there, I stayed for five days and saw the Hollywood sign only once due to the smog. The smog also had me washing my face several times a day. After sitting in traffic at 8pm at night the first two days, I wondered why the hell these people weren't at home yet. After visiting Zuma beach and telling my friend there was no way he was getting me in that brown water... I wondered why the hell people lived there.
As if earthquakes, forrest fires, and mud slides weren't enough signs from God.

Well 3 years later I am making my return to LA. With everything going on on the Right coast (hey I didn't make it right just look at a map), I need a vacation and why not spend it with my bestfriend who is relocating to LA to finish his PhD. Sooooo instead of punking out in ATL this Labor Day I will be in the land of stars.

  • Nonstop flight from Washington to LA .... check

  • Luxury accomodations at the Five Star, Five Diamond Beverly Wilshire Hotel, A Four Seasons property... check

  • One best friend to kick it with all weekend... check

  • Need for a getaway... double and triple check


August 29-Sept 3 East meets West

I'm so with you on LA. I was there for three months on a work related project. I had no idea why folks loved that place so much. I soooo don't like it. I think the Latino influences are interesting though. It's the only place where you can go to Subway and get cilantro on your sandwich.

I love LA and was actually thinking about going for Labor Day weekend myself, til a cabin trip won out.

I hope you enjoy yourself while there. And you can skip The Catch. I'm telling you now, that club is horrible.
