And the Grammy Goes To…

October 2, 2011

in blogger meetup, fruit, music

It’s so nice to have a fellow food blogger in the neighborhood! This morning I met up with Angela (who you may have heard on APM’s “The Splendid Table“) and we hit the Larchmont Farmer’s Market

She picked through leaves, I picked up some flowers…

I tried jujubes this time! They taste very apple-esque and crisp – not too sweet

After parting ways, I headed downtown with Abe

(Can you believe the side of a major highway looks like the set of a high school play?)

We checked out the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live. No pix to share, unfortunately.

It’s a small museum but we had fun…the weekend’s a good time to go – it was pretty empty so all the recording booths were free. That’s right, we laid down some tracks!

But seriously, if you want to hear some music Abe and I did a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) check out our band’s ancient myspace page.

I use those sample cups like shot cups too. I haven’t done a shot since my 21st birthday and don’t plan on doing any more. But it’s funny to pretend…and they taste much better. :-)

I went to Nokia Live recently and saw some sort of (music related) museum but I’m not sure this was it.

Too bad you couldn’t take pictures, I would love to see the inside of it.

Oh man…I don’t think I can remember my log-in for my MySpace account anymore.

Farmers’ markets are so much fun! And going with someone who enjoys food (and photographing it) just as much as you is even more fun…

Glad you had fun recording at the museum!

Those flowers are so pretty that they don’t even look real!

Ancient is right. I don’t think I’ve seen the word “myspace” in 5 years. But it’s still rockin’ regardless :)

You make me miss Cali like WHOA…altho Korea has some street food…I haven’t found an amazing farmer’s market in Seoul yet! I’ll have to live bi-cariously through you and your Cali eats for the next few years….

Lynn, you are an awesome Farmer’s Market companion! Loved stopping at each of the stalls and enjoying all the fruit samples.Captured the day perfectly!

Larchmont Farmers Market is my favorite because I’m a sample monster!
