Discover Downtown LA
By: Brandy Black
I have rediscovered downtown LA and wanted to share some of our latest great finds.
God of Carnage at Ahmanson Theatre in downtown LA.
This cast is spectacular and the show is perfect, for parents especially. James Gandolfini, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis and Marcia Gay Harden.
Bottega Louie– for dinner before the show- The food is delicious and there is always a crowd, so be prepared for a wait at the cool bar that makes perfect Sidecars.
Fabulous Downtown Afternoon
Art in the Streets at the MOCA downtown. We were there for 2-plus hours with our 3-year-old. Although the kids want to touch everything and can touch almost nothing except the fabulous drums, guitar, and keyboards set for all the passersby to hear, it is still a fabulous experience for them and an enlightening look at graffiti and street art. It has been rather controversial, bringing a spike in graffiti and vandalism in the little Tokyo neighborhood where the museum is located.
Dinner at Senior Fish across the street from the exhibit. Outdoor tables with lanterns hanging above and live music blasting throughout the restaurant.
