Akemi is loving this hotel more than I am, although she’s disappointed that, for a dog-friendly hotel, she’s hasn’t seen one dog. She’s a big fun of the rustic motif. I find the neighborhood somewhat lacklustre – outside of a nearby Shake Shack.
To this point, this has been a trip told in burgers. Of the four meals I’ve had so far, three have included burgers. First up was the Impossible Burger (unavailable in Canada). As far as non-meat alternates go, this was the best I’ve ever had. Having said that, I still prefer beef.
The best dessert so far was this nutella and cherry hazelnut crumble at the hotel. I had this at 2:00 p.m. and then practically slept through dinner four hours later.
Shake Shack! I had the double cheeseburger and a milkshake that could only be eaten with one of their all too bendy spoons. Akemi had a plain burger and crinkle fries. Weird Al Yankovic was enjoying lunch at the next table.
One of my first meetings was at the “House of Lanterns”. I’m a big fan. Hoping this project we have in the works ultimately pans out.
Doesn’t look particularly safe to me, but what do I know?
It doesn’t get any more L.A. than Danny Trejo’s donut shop.
Hey, look who’s also in town! It’s former Dark Matter line producer Robbie David!

Two pitches tomorrow and a general meeting tomorrow. We’re eyeing Friday for a visit to the pug shelter.
