I picked up a pair of slippers…

Around 7:45pm we headed over to Genghis Cohen, to see Angela perform!

FYI there’s a Chinese restaurant attached, where you can order food – I didn’t eat any but the vegetarian options did not get great reviews from my neighbors.

Wednesday got wacky…

…after acting class with Nick/Christy I ran a last-minute errand for Huffington Post Live.

Abe produced a segment about “The Right Way to Eat Meat” starring superstar butchers Lindy and Grundy and needed some “props” from their shop.

(I wasn’t sent because he’s a vegetarian – he had a dentist appointment.)

Little freebie thrown in – a Frog Hollow Farm Apricot – eaten en route to a coffee date with Tess.

We watched “Behind the Candelabra.” Did you know Liberace could cook…

The evening ended on a high – we drove around aimlessly, listening to the new Daft Punk Album

…which is also pretty sweet.

Magazine Trip

books - store

Had my annual eye exam this morning…

DSCN2759

…while waiting I was hoping to catch some Crazy Rich Asians coverage – the press thus far has been amazing – Oprah Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, Publisher’s Weekly, and what I thought was Travel + Leisure but was actually Conde Nast Traveler.

DSCN2755

I feel like I actually traveled to Southeast Asia afterwards!

DSCN2777

Stopped by Bangkok Market on Melrose…

DSCN2763

…filled with ALL KINDS of amazingness – some familiar

There’s also a butcher, and a produce section…

DSCN2773

…but alas, no melon! I had to stop by Pavillions to pick up my breakfast…

…and look what I found in the current issue of Vogue!!!
