Thanks to a dear friend, I was whisked away on a quick, though utterly grand, LA adventure this past weekend.
Here’s what I discovered:
— The Houdini Estate is just as awesome as it sounds;
— The pillows at The Standard hotel in WeHo are divine. In fact, I bought two to replace my ancient flat ones;
— The front desk at said hotel will call your room if a lobby full of drunk Santas are chanting your name;
— From the plane, you can see the massive, scary clouds from the Ventura fire;
— Last (and certainly not least), the participatory storytelling show called 49 Boxes is one for the books. I’ve been to my fair share of immersive events and this one is definitely one of the best. Color me impressed.
If you get a chance to experience it, please do. There are no scheduled shows right now but I will definitely let you know when tickets go on sale again.
