We have the technology!

Turkey Day has come and gone and so have the leftovers. We had a nice, if hectic, holiday weekend and now it is back to a Christmas tinged reality. Andrew and Jodi were down for the Holiday in OC and were our first official multi-night house-guests at Verive's Hollywood. We had a wonderful time and it was REALLY great to see a couple of friends from up north having missed the whole lot of them pretty darn bad during the first few months of this new life-phase... (I absolutely must plan a Santa Cruz/Valley/Bay Area trip for early 2004!)

Out with our guests on Friday night we finally ventured into a bar that has been on my list for a while: Daddy's on Vine St (all of a block from Julie's place-of-work.) It is described on Digital City as "Hollywood's coolest bar," and as having a "James Dean-meets-Frank Sinatra atmosphere," which pretty much sounds like heaven with booze to me. It turned out to be a pretty darn cool place with ample booths and plush seating, a large well-manned bar, and a kick ass juke box. We will defiantly be returning, especially since it is within that all-important walking radius from our beds! After a few drinks we decided we needed food badly and set out for places unknown. I have often remarked that you cannot throw rock without hitting a Thai place in Hollywood (there is one LITERALLY on every block. Usually both sides of the street to boot,) but I think it would be hard to beat Toi on Sunset, a rock-n-roll themed place open till 4am. The food was GOOD and the atmosphere really rockin' (and did I mention that it is open 'till 4?)
