I'm full

The weekend turned out to be quite eventful from start to finish.

Friday after much debate Dave and I along with Mike decide to try out a new Korean restaurant. Beverly Soon Tofu is not on Beverly but is quite nice. We all had tofu (surprise, surprise) along with many sides. After dinner we took in Thumbsucker. Excellent! Keanu Reeves acts as bad as ever and Vince Vaughn is surprisingly great. Definitely go see it if you have the chance.

Saturday I put in a solid 8 hour day at work, then Dave and I decided to try the other new restaurant that didn't make the cut of Friday. Guelaguetza is Oaxacan, authentic oaxacan. We had trouble deciphering the menu but ended up ordering in basic terms a tamale, a quesadilla and a plate of meat with shredded cheese and cactus. All of this cost us next to nothing and had serious flava. I have a feeling this will make it into our regular restaurant rotation.

Sunday... started out with some serious intellect. The Hammer museum was holding a panel discussion on Power & Architecture. And if that wasn't enough, the panel consisted of Rem Koolhaas (OMA founder), Mark Wigley (dean at Columbia), and Sylvia Lavin (chair at UCLA). After the discussion we headed to our old hood Venice for the Abbot Kinney street festival. We then dropped by our old favorite sushi place Canal Club, affectionately referred to as Crap Club, but only in our inner circle. THEN the big finale of the weekend, Ascension. A play showing at the Electric Lodge.

A trip to Venice and no mention of Thw Whaler, what gives?
