We just got home from the theater. West Side Story. We have been going quite a bit (since Fran discovered a half price ticket site), we haven't been sitting in her favorite spot (7th row center) and she keep apologizing for the seats, but they are fine!

In the last six weeks, we have spent the last four Wednesdays at the theater! We have been dining beforehand at this lovely (cheap) little joint on the corner of Hollywood and Vine and in the same block as the Pantages. Tonight, she sent me to get a table while she picked up the tickets at Will Call and the place was CLOSED! Evidently we got in there before Beauty and the Beast and then the place shut down.

As a result the place we ended up for dinner cost us about $100 instead of the normal $50 or less at the Pub that we would spend. That included a couple entrees and drinks, maybe even an appetizer. This place tonight, while good, was very pricey Fran's chicken and waffles were $16, my flat iron steak was $23, I got a charcuterie appetizer for $13 and who knows what her soup cost and the bread pudding, not to mention my Martini and glass of wine.

The show was good but sad, since the leading man died.

Sounds like you're having a wonderful weekly Wednesday night!


WOW! That's a pricey dinner; even by Aussie standards for 2 people. Hope it was good. Otherwise, I guess you're looking for a new establishment next week.

We don't have tickets again until June, but Fran keeps looking up this half price ticket site. We weren't planning on seeing West Side story, two weeks ago, but she got the half price tickets so all of a sudden we were going!

I'm hoping that they just had some kind of plumbing nightmare, or a resolvable liquor license snafu. This was a GREAT pre theater restaurant, the week that we were running severely late, we told the waitress that we had tickets for the 8PM show, it was like 7:10 and our food arrived within five minutes, before our drinks! Granted it was a burger and onion rings and Fish and chips, but hey! It was fast and we were out of there in time for our show.

We were there two other times on a more leisurely schedule, in fact we ate there two weeks ago before Beauty and Beast and they were just great. I guess they shut down just after that. I hope they reopen because it's like Denny's prices but really good food and drinks. In fact we were hoping to host our band banquet there next October. I don't want to have to spend money like we did tonight before shows!

Otherwise I will be bringing my own BYOW in Mtn Dew bottles like I used to do on planes when we flew cattle class before the whole 911 thing. There are some other restaurants without bars around, but I like being able to get my glass of wine without having to bring it along. This pub gave us that luxury along with an affordable dinner. All the other really close places serve pretentious menus with prices according. We want our cheap pub back.

Hope your restaurant is opened next time you go.


We headed out for dinner tonight with some friends. I didn't take the camera but the food was porn worthy.

Might be a long time before we head out again. Need to start squirrelling extra cash for September!

Sounds like you could use a massage, enjoy your weekend!

Agree! Even Sizzler is expensive now unless you are really big eaters.

Late night last night with people two houses down deciding to throw a party - at 10pm! At 11.30 I closed the house up and put the aircon on to muffle the noise Up early at 5am today to make an international call at 6am and now I'm tired.

Sorting and clearing out my study to get rid of current desk and bookshelf and bring in new cupboard for me stuff to make better use of space. Plus I'm cooking dinner and dis-ing as the same time

Have a great night everyone

Sounds like your being very productive.



I just ordered a bunch of our toiletry and flea stuff for the dogs on-line. Time for me to call it a night.
