The Long and Happy Weekend

Last weekend was the first long weekend in a while that the Octopus and I stayed local. And yay for that. On Saturday we took the LA Conservancy's walking tour of downtown's historic core. It was our first Conservancy walking tour and it was great. I highly recommend. We're planning on doing another one, probably of Broadway's historic theaters.

Another highlight of the weekend was seeing 27 Dresses. Can't remember the last time I saw a romantic comedy in the theater (does Knocked Up count?) If you're in the mood for a cute, funny and formulaic (and I don't necessarily mean that in a bad way) chick flick, this is for you.

We also caught the Murakami exhibit at the MoCA. His sculptures, painting, videos, and even his merchandise for Louis Vuitton. Probably the weirdest thing at the exhibit were these videos with Inochi, a bizarre, surreal, prepubescent Murakami character.
