Another furlough Monday!
Today, it was just me & Mr. Siegel, enjoying some much-needed mommy/daddy free time. We always try to think of something fun to do, that The Boy would hate. This is not difficult. LOL!
So today, after breakfast at Mimi's, we headed over the hill to Culver City, to a restaurant supply place we'd heard about called Surfas. I'm happy to say, it was even cooler than I'd imagined. It is FULL of restaurant equipment -- everything imaginable, from cocktail parasols to pizza stones to commercial-grade coffeemakers. But in addition to that, they have all manner of gourmet foodstuffs: sugars, salts, sauces, oils, vinegars, and chocolate. Need a giant drum of maraschino cherries? They've got it. Need a rack of boar ribs? They've got it. It's WILD. And FUN.
After that, we bopped over to the nearby landmark Johnnie's Pastrami. It's a nifty little diner that's been there for like half a century. As you'll see in the pix, we did not order the pastrami, which I understand to be some sort of food travesty.
Our final stop of the day was at Mr. Siegel's favorite record store, Record Surplus on Pico. We spent a LONG time here, perusing all the awesome inventory. If you're looking for ANY album, chances are very good you'll find it at this place.
