If you haven’t been keeping track of my pictures lately then you will notice right away I don’t dress myself very well. Who needs button up shirts or jeans when a nice, Ren & Stimpy t-shirt and loose jean shorts will do the job? So I don’t go out and shop very often unless its for entertainment purposes. But there is one place in LA that should be seen by all outsiders and that is The Grove. A sprawling shopping center that feels like something out of a scene in Paris rather than in the middle of a busy area of Los Angeles. It is also a place where countless celebrities are spotted so even the ‘well to do’ can’t help themselves coming here. Unfortunately there are no celebrities to be seen in this post (despite a ‘John Stamos Alert’ which will be discussed later). Even so The Grove is a pretty cool place that I would recommend anyone to come see. Here’s a taste of:
Yes, there is a trolley that can drive you around the center. I feel like that it is a mix of cool and awkwardness. Cause I love the old school design (like anything else here) but it begs the thought: ‘How out of shape are you that you need a trolley to drive you around something barely half a mile long?
Me, enjoying the fountain, was a douche the whole day wearing earbuds the whole visit
John Stamos Alert! So it looked like FOX was doing a promotional stunt involving Stamos new show Grandfathered. Sadly he was no where to be found as he was on the other side of the country doing something else. Weak.
Remember how in my previous post with the Grand Central Market that it didn’t feel like home? Specifically as a new place to eat ala Reading Terminal Market. Well my friends, back at home and in/around the Philadelphia area: I have found that place at last.
Independent restaurants and arts/crafts as far as the eye can see
A delicious apple fritter
My last view while walking back to the car. Didn’t even realize CBS was literally next door. It reminds me that I will need to cross off something else off my LA bucket list. One day soon Drew Carey….I’m gonna spin that wheel of yours and win that boat.
And that’s it! Can’t wait to get a girlfriend soon so I can literally see all my money get sucked away into a place like this.
