Posts Tagged ‘Vermont Blvd. Los Angeles’

So…before I get back to tying flies again, I have to put up a few more posts about traveling down South to spend time with family and friends over the holidays. Kind of a repository if any of those guys want to snatch a look at this time period. As usual, the festivities begin with FOOD:

A snazzy joint on Vermont, in Los Feliz, for brunch – Atrium

50’s Post Modern…

The watering pond…

The family came from all over Southern California and these guys were the first to arrive…

Green stuff…potatoes & meat…

Next arrivals…Michael and Aimee…

Somebody went basic…

More great stuff…

The late arrivals…Nick & Ally…

…and while we are eating, Miles hips us to the fact that one of the chicks he follows, slid into a table nearby…kid don’t miss a beat (Halsey)…

More food ….

…and berries…

After brunch, Michael and Ally lay some LOVE on their nephew…

Ally ready for a walk…

So we visited some shops on this strip of Vermont Blvd.

Michael attuned…

After our walk, we headed a few blocks away to pick up the van that Michael and Aimee used for their tour of Death Valley…

Somebody picked a favorite spot in the upper reaches of the van hoping to stowaway…

The following morning (Monday)…Nadia, Lil’ Moo and I headed to downtown Los Angeles and the Grand Central Market for lunch and to pick up Xmas goodies…

Oh yeah, Horse Thief BBQ

Lil’ Moo was fascinated by a bunch of guys from the L.A.P.D. Bomb Squad who sat nearby for lunch – dripping in black, with Glocks in leg holsters…I figured it might a good idea to NOT photograph them…

Cruising the Grand Central Market…

One could spend an entire day here…

Wait !…I think we have found Nirvana for Lil’ Moo…

“I’ll take that and some of those…ummm, those too and that over there…”

“Did we go down this aisle ???”…

Off to Moskatel’s for more XMAS gifts…this place is unreal…

Miles, trying to twist some fat guy’s arm…

Miles…making out like a bandit on art supplies…

Santa City…

Lil’ Moo being photobombed…

With his buds…

Ready for his close up on the way to Pasadena…

Santa’s helper at The Congregation Ale House in Pasadena…or as Miles calls it  – The Church of the Burger…

One greasy brat on a bun with onions…

Calling it a day on Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA…
