Spirited Saturday

Jacquie at The Normandie Bakery
Our fun-filled weekend continued on Saturday.  Jacquie and I met up with the yarny ladies at the WeHo SnB, Original Farmers Market.  Larry and Bob visited the George Barris Custom Car Show in downtown Culver City.  We met back at the house around 12:30 and zoomed down to the Normandie Bakery for a lovely lunch.  It seems that the owner of the Normandie, Chef Josette LeBlonde, previously had an establishment in Las Vegas, so Jacquie and Bob were acquainted with her products.  
I just love the Normandie.  Josette has a satellite bakery in the Farmers Market, but at the original location, you can purchase wholesale baked goods, pate and more.  Josette also offers breakfast and lunch at a reasonable price.

 After lunch, we came back to the Miracle Mile to visit the L.A. County Museum of Art.   "Metropolis II" is a fabulous construction by Chris Burden.  Really.  You must see and HEAR it!

Burden also installed the vintage light poles that have become an iconic landmark along Wilshire Blvd. We stopped in to see "California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way."   I never tire of this exhibit.  It ends soon, so be sure to visit LACMA and check it out!

Later in the evening we suffered a bit of traffic on our way out to Highland Park for the North East L.A. Second Saturday Gallery Night.  We visited a few galleries, including Avenue 50 and Future Studio, with a stop at My Taco for a quick bite.

We had non-stop fun with our houseguests!  I do love touring Los Angeles.

Thank you for the detailed excursions with your visitors. I always make notes to places I could visit on a trip to LA.
Isn't it fun to have dear friends visit for the weekend?
