California 2004 – LA

We went to LA with my brother, Bruce, and his wife, Jodi. It was Jodi’s first trip to CA, and Bruce’s first trip since he was 8-years-old.

Highlights:
Santa Monica Pier – saw dolphins
Universal Studios
Sitting in traffic
Pacific Coast Highway
Chinatown
Tar pits (remember seeing a guy with an NRA cap sitting on a bench “reading” Playboy)
Beverly Hills
Hollywood
Mulholland Drive

Ronald Reagan Presidential Library
San Simeon – Hearst castle

We went to Mr. Chow’s again. I remember the food this time, and it was fabulous. Jason Bateman was leaving as we arrived. The best part of the night was when Stevie Wonder and his family was seated next to us. It was everything I could do to keep my SIL from jumping over the table and accosting this poor man. We also saw Robert DeNiro and Denis Leary.
