Venturing outside of our bubble

On weekends, we like to do brunch. It’s our opportunity to catch up. Often times, we eat at home, but there are times we go out to eat. We have a short list of eating establishments that we keep in heavy rotation- Armon’s in Eagle Rock, Foxy’s in Glendale, Marston’s in Pasadena, & the cheesiest Mimi’s Cafe in Los Feliz.

Today, Rob had to run an errand in Silver Lake. We decided to grab a bite to eat out there. This was risky proposition since it was around 11AM, brunch golden hour in L.A. NYC is the city that never sleeps. L.A. is the city that sleeps in. We considered well-known Silver Lake eateries such as Millie’s and EATWELL. Then, we stumbled upon Town and Country.

We sat outside. Our neighboring dining companion’s Dalmatian felt compelled to say hello every few minutes. Miko the dog was a cutie.

The food is delish. The coffee was rapidly flowing thanks to a very attentive wait staff. The owner of the restaurant, Anna, provided us with some cookies for trying out her restaurant. I ordered a Brie & Walnut Quesadilla served with a Mango Chutney. Rob had Sausage and Eggs. My breakfast was decadent. I loved it. Although, I’m sure my thighs will not.

The other part of our Saturday was spent with some of my friends and their husbands. Natalie who is part of monthly dinner group planned a Movie Night. It was not just any movie night; it was a movie at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Initially, the idea of a movie at the cemetery is a bit disconcerting. However, I have comforted myself with the idea that it is a fund raising effort to help with the cemetery’s upkeep. Many famous of Hollywood’s famous stars are laid to rest there.

hosts the events and screens old movies. This evening’s movie was Gold Diggers of 1933. A benefit to the experience is that you can picnic while watching the movie. The place was quite packed.

As always, I had a great time and am glad we decided to venture “outside of our bubble”.
