The LA Rising Festival is on July 30 and you could see Rage Against The Machine aka THE BEST Rock and Roll band IN HISTORY!

If you're in LA on the 30th, Nick, and don't attend, I'll hack your Axiom account and permanently change your moniker to PUSSY!

If you are a meat lover, eat here. My friend just went and loved it.

A bunch of friends are into what's called a Paleo diet, kind of a new version of Atkins but more sustainable. This restaurant qualifies.

Rage Against The Machine does have some good "tunes". Haven't listened to them in a while... But alas, I won't be there. I fly home on the 29th.

That is a crazy sample menu for the 'animal restaurant'...

My wife probably wouldn't like it, but I am looking for dining options too. Nothing too fancy (on a budget) and nothing too unusual. She loves pasta for example, neither of us like seafood.

I like that place, too, Ken.

Also, the Aquarium of the Pacific is pretty enjoyable. It's in Long Beach.

Nick, since you're going to Griffith Observatory, you'll probably take in a show at the Planetarium. Another thing to do is to go in the evening to have a look through their 12" refractor. There's about an hour of darkness before they close at 10:00.

That sounds interesting. I haven't been in a planetarium in a long time...

I did the planetarium show last time I was there (December 2010) which was pretty cool and I think that it is a new show now.

Every time I've been there, it is either cloudy or the telescope is closed for one reason or another. I will definitely try again.

As for the Aquarium of the Pacific, I heard that it was pretty small. Is it worth the $25 or so?

Dumb question, what is "9292 Bundy"??? I was thinking an address maybe, but google had no clue..


I probably got the numbers wrong. Maybe it was 9294??

Anyway, it was OJ's crime scene.

I was in LA shortly afterward for a conference and had students with me. As soon as we got into the rental car @ LAX, it was the first place they wanted to go.

And, of course, I was kidding. Nothing to see there, folks. Move along, move along.
