Quick getaway in the nearby mountain communities of San Bernardino to spend Mom's birthday with Mom (!) and family. From downtown L.A., I'm always surprised it's a mere hour and a 1/2 drive. Though, since I rented a Mini Cooper through Flexcar, I could've driven to Canada...Had dinner at Finn McCool's in Twin Peaks to see Wake The Bard...(where I had 3 Smithwicks and 3 Irish Coffees and couldn't barely get a buzz--must've been the altitude)...
visited nearby Crestline and had lunch with some family at Rocky's in Sky Forest.

What a great way to spend a first date: dinner at Hollywood Thai in Thai Town followed by NYC-based Looker @ El Cid. Too bad their plane was delayed, meant they couldn't perform live on killradio.org's "Hear, Here"...but I'm glad that I was able to see them as well as get to better "know" my date (sorry, no photos of that) at this "authentic replica of a 16th Century tavern."
