Last night in Pittsburgh decided to go walk Hot Metal Bridge right across from the hotel. Its great how they turned part of an old bridge into a bike and pedestrian path with nice views of the city skyline.

+Nicole Tester​ i didn't know you used to live there. Seemed like a nice town, at least niw it does. There were a lot of areas that had been redeveloped with good restaurants and nightlife. I enjoyed :)
Of course, nothing like our weather. It wasn't hot but very humid.

Classic Hollywood evening: Musso, Pantages and Motown. Motown Records moved its headquarters to Hollywood in 1972.

+Dominick Galang​ our subway is not quite as crowded as they are on East Coast. Pictures were taken early in the morning. Also it still doesn't go many places so only people that live / work along the different lines take it.

So much for being the un-carrier... The will not add insurance to a brand new phone because you didn't buy it from them. Even Sprint would let you insure a phone so long as it is in working order. Pretty arbitrary and anti-competitive move T-Mobile!

This little cafe on Bloomingdale's 3rd floor in Fashion Square Mall is one of our favorite restaurants in LA. It may look strange to have a restaurant inside of a department store, but the quality of the food and service easily competes with many stand-alone restaurants in the LA. This past Sunday we started with their soup of the day which are always a treat. I had the cream of tomato with garlic croutons. It was hot, velvety smooth with lots of flavor and diced tomatoes. My friend had the chicken lentil soup which he also raved about. For the main dish, I had one of the daily specials which was the cheese melt with tomatoes and bacon. The cheddar cheese, bacon and tomatoes just melted in your mouth. The melt was freshly prepared and full of flavor. My friend had the turkey club which again was freshly made with crisply toasted whole wheat bread. We usually order their spicy mustard which is how all mustards should be, spicy! I don't know who they source their mustard from but its even tastier than the high end ones like Grey Poupon. They have many other entrees if you desire something a little heavier. We have been there many times over the past couple of years and never had a bad meal. Throughout the meal, the service was friendly and very attentive. Its a nice escape from many other other destination restaurants and of course the overcrowded food court. They are pretty busy on the weekends around 12:30pm or so. So if you don't want to wait, go earlier or after 1:30pm. You will not be dissapointed!

A little piece of Puerto Rico opened in LA recently in Atwater Village. We went there tonight for the first time. The service was very friendly, helpful and reasonably fast for a restaurant. Granted it was Monday night but there were 7 tables with people so it wasn't empty. The restaurant itself was very clean and comfortable. The food was very good. We had sopa de platanos (plantain soup), asopado de pollo (chicken stew), bacalaitos (cod fritters), mofongo relleno de mariscos (plantain ball stuffed with seafood) and pastelón (aka piñon) (Puerto Rican "lasagna" made with sweet plantains instead of pasta). Everything was delicious and authentic with maybe a few culinary alterations. For example, the pastelón had a tomato sauce over it which is not exactly the way my Mom made it but a good alteration nevertheless. We were too full to order desert so will have to wait until the next time :)

Made reservation easily the day before through OpenTable as a place to have brunch with some friends on Sunday. The valet team as well as the Maitre-D were very friendly and lead us promptly to the a nice table right on the edge of the balcony as we had requested via Open Table. The waitress came over right away for our drink orders. Our favorite here is the spicy bloody marys for the brunch sort of thing but they also have a full bar to meet your drinking desires. Location, Location, Location: Once you go past the Maitre-D station you are greeted by an expansive 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. The restaurant has nice garden with orchids below the restaurant deck as well as some gas firepits for the cooler evening weather. We like the sunny morning weather overlooking the ocean and all the paddle surfers and small boats floating below the overlook. The food: For starters we had the lump crab cakes which were moist and very tasty, specially with the chile and corn relish sauce. For entrees, we had the lobster quiche which was excellent and their seafood paella which was decent. Our friends had the crab benedicts which they really enjoyed. Overall, its a great place to relax, eat, drink and take in the ocean scenery. The staff were very attentive and made sure that we were taken care of. Food is on the pricey side of things ($15-20/entree) but worth it for the ambiance. All in all, a great experience for a special occasion, to take your out-of-town guests to enjoy Southern California or just to enjoy an epic Southern California weather-day.
