The day in photos and commentary.
The day started early as I had to have my son at jury duty at 8:30am. I planned to only spend part of the day with him but as my interest grew in the antics of the court system I deceided to stay the remainder of the day.
Van Nuys courthouse at about 9:30am.
Those tamales came out of the big silver pot on the left.
Not a great lunch. Near the courthouse so they have something of a captive audience.
But ... when one is hungry you tend to eat just about anything.
First stop ... CB1 Gallery. This may be my favorite gallery in downtown Los Angeles.
Clyde Beswick, owner of CB1 Gallery, always has a smile waiting.
My thought in a place like this .... Natalie heaven.
The record store. My thought in a place like this - Jack heaven, Joe Bourdet heaven, Mr. Wayne heaven.
First band of the evening. Guitar player is the fellow on the right. We discussed his rig.
That is a 1968 Gibson ES-335 in the shot.
The upper dish is chicken parmigiana. The lower dish are very large grilled prawns (shrimp) with pasta and vegetables.
Side note ... I think I may have been the only person inside that was not carded :)
We were in time for the second band.
