A good weekend. We didn't make it to the High Desert Test Sites as originally planned, but we made up for it with other activities.
Friday: Taco Night with H, T, and J.
Sat. : Stopped by ACME to see the Monique Prieto show. I always love taking a peek in the back office, too: Pics 1,2-- Matt Merkel Hess ceramic trashcans (he'll be closing out the year with a solo show at ACME--very excited about this one), a gorgeous Caitlin Lonegan painting with hydrangeas.
Saw Bryan Ferry at the Greek. Love that man.
The way to go to the Greek & avoid nasty stacked parking: Park your car on Hillhurst or thereabouts, get an outdoor table at Little Dom's (not as noisy), and walk up to the Greek after dinner. Easy peasy.
Sun: Yoga, errands, cleaning, reading, & dinner with good friends at brand new Highland Park Restaurant Maximiliano (3rd pic). Finally! A good, casual, affordable Italian Place in our hood. Brought to you by the same folks as the Oinkster.
We tried a lot of different things- all good. Especially Recommended: Spaghetti and Meatballs, Tagliatelle with Bolognese Sauce, any of the pizzas, Olive Oil Ice Cream with Sea Salt Caramel.
