Friday Night Date
Larry bought tickets for the first night of the California Noir Festival at LACMA on Friday. We'd seen the first movie several times ("Kiss Me Deadly"), but we hadn't seen the second of this double feature, "The Crimson Kimono."
Since the movie didn't start until 9:25, we had dinner first at Slow Fish on the Miracle Mile. We split everything we ordered: The Famous Fat Avo--avocado filled with seared and seasoned albacore; Ascon--asparagus wrapped in bacon; and Seafood Yaki Udon. Everything was delicious, served beautifully and promptly. We will definitely return.

We arrived at the Museum around 8:30 and took a walk through the permanent collection to visit some old favorites. LACMA was rather deserted on this foggy, almost summer night. It was a pleasure, strolling through the galleries.
While waiting for "The Crimson Kimono" to start, we saw friends, Amy and Billy. Always great running into like-minded L.A. fans! We LOVED the movie! It was shot all over Little Tokyo and other parts of Downtown L.A. and the Mid-Wilshire area, in 1959. Parker Center, L.A. City Hall, the streets of Little Tokyo and the Gaylord Hotel were locations prominently featured. James Shigeta and Glenn Corbett certainly were heart-throbs!
