California Dreamin' - Part Two

CALI 2624

After stuffing ourselves silly at CLIFTON'S CAFETERIA, we headed to the outskirts of CHINATOWN to do a bit of browsing and shopping at the Los Angeles version of the RENEGADE CRAFT FAIR...the dusty dirt parking lot was packed and we were doubtful that we would find a parking space. In the middle of this unremarkable little park were all these tents, teeming with people looking for unique handmade goodies...

Our friends BECKY & AITOR had a booth there, representing for THE SWEETIE PIE PRESS and THE MISANTHROPE SPECIALTY COMPANY...Aitor was in the middle of working on one of his world-famous UNFLATTERING PORTRAITS. They gave away free KETCHUP PACKETS at their table...

After Renegade, Cynthia and I headed out to see our friend Tate at the hospital...we passed by NICKELODEON STUDIOS and the mighty AMOEBA RECORDS on our way there. We also passed by a place called "BIG WANGS"...Cynthia said they sold buffalo wings, but I guess it could be a Chinese take-out place owned by a chinese dude named "Wang"...I guess it could easily be a the name of a gay bar as well...

We spent about three hours visiting our friend in the hospital...on our way out we saw this awesome MOBILE hanging in the hotel lobby...outside, the sun was setting and the weather started to cool down considerably. I forgot how cold it can get at night in LA, especially since the city is so close to the ocean...
