Dupar's and a walk in the park
On this beautiful and 80 degree Wednesday, I met up with Jo and baby Sydney for breakfast at Dupar's in the Farmer's Market. I have had my eye on this diner for some time, so the minute she suggested it I jumped at the chance.
I was not disappointed.
After the most amazing pancakes, I would have preferred to nap but instead we took a pass through Pan Pacific Park. Who knew such a great park could be found right in the middle of Hollywood? It's perfect for walking, strollering, or picnicking.
I'm surprised at the number of people out and about during the day? Do none of you people have jobs? It makes LA feel like a major metropolis, when the stores and restaurants are packed midweek. Yet it does make one worry about the weekend and wonder if you should even attempt to venture out.
I almost forgot, I do have some bad news...
After swimming yesterday, the baby wanted fast food. I don't eat fast food. So right there on Glendale Boulevard we made a little compromise. I would drive him to Burger King and but he would have to at least try the new veggie burger. He negotiated for fries and a shake, that wily one, I cannot imagine what we are in for once he can actually talk.
Longish story short, the veggie burger sucked. It tasted terrible. All the condiments and accessories in the world could not save it. As most staunch vegetarians are probably aware, the thing is even thrown on the grill right next to the meat. You would think that would give it some extra flavor just by association. Moral of the story: should have gone to In & Out... oh yeah, and baby does not (yet) know best...
Where do you think it went wrong?
