Yes he did get repainted, by the same artist, maybe 3 or 4 years ago. After 30-plus years, the mural was getting very faded and was peeling. It faces south after all, so it always gets some sun.

It's Thursday, or as some co-workers of mine say, "Happy Friday Eve!" So tag along with my partner and me to dinner out yet again! I'm still slightly buzzed, so please bear with me. Food pics, with some random photos thrown in! ¡Ay!

Mexican restaurant time...

Chips and guacamole and salsas.

I had a cocktail called a Sleep Now In The Fire, which was Mezcal Espadin, tepache, lime, habanero shrub, and ginger beer. It was pretty good.

Photo by me

Three different kinds of tacos: Taco de arrachera (skirt steak) en chile verde, chicken mole taco, and a taco with pork in tomatillo sauce. All very tasty!

Photo by me

And then for "dessert," a Rémy Sidecar. So good. "Get me a Rémy Martin with a water back GODDAMNIT!! Thank you. I know THEY like it, and *I*, DO, TOO...."

Los Angeles is chaos. It's a funny place, and that's what I love about it.

A cocktail called a Diablito de Piña, which consisted of Dulce Vida silver tequila, pineapple simple syrup, Jarritos de piña, and chile and charred pineapple, served in a terra cotta drinking jug. It was pretty good.

Someone's car ate it.

Apparently it was a Subaru.

This non-descript little building in my opinion should be considered a historical landmark. Here, in Studio A of the Westlake Recording Studios, Michael Jackson recorded the "Thriller" album. Other artists who recorded at Westlake Studios include Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Quincy Jones, Billy Idol, Bruce Swedien, Gilberto Gil, Missy Elliott, Madonna, Marilyn Manson, Aaliyah and Justin Timberlake.

If anyone is familiar with standup comedian Tig Notaro, you would know her story about who she saw at the California Chicken Cafe. Apparently, another new one is going in.

The person was taking so long writing letters out, the other letters started to deform... "PEE?" Somebody paid money for THIS?
