So I had to be in LA for a Monday meeting and decided to make a weekend of it!
Early Saturday morning start:
At YUL airport!
Arrived LAX on the shuttle to the car rental:
Driving to the BHB it seemed like there were a lot of tourists this weekend:
Dropped into the Boutique to say hello!!!!
Yeah, I was away for Mother's Day, so I have a lot of making up to do
Spent the afternoon in Santa Monica:
3rd Street Promenade:
Monday after our meetings on the drive back to LA from Anaheim:
The 9th Floor view from my hotel looking North:
On the way to meet the "guys" in Manhattan Beach:
One with ketchup and one plain, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
L to R - Victor, Kia, & Farbod:
Jay & Kenny:
Now these guys know how to welcome a visiting Risti, the Bomb cake with candles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Group photo with (standing) Victor, Farbod, Kenny, & Kia, and seated L to R, Vic, Me, and Jay!
Kia and I comparing his ketchup flavored Bronzo and my plain one!!!!
I was really surprised when the restaurant allowed us to move to the patio to fire up some cigars and order more drinks as they were almost at closing time!!!!
Kia is setting up for our small table shot
Having some fun with a UV laser pointer......................
Another group shot with the camera set on 'timer'!!!!
I just want to take a moment to thank Victor and Kenny for pulling this together and to everyone who showed up. It's always great to see you all, and you guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tuesday morning view from the 17th floor restaurant.
