Beverly Hills Bat Mitzvah, by PBaruch (August 2019)
« on: September 05, 2019, 03:10:57 PM »
The celebration of a Bat Mitzvah is a milestone and we wanted to make our second kid's Bat Mitzvah special.  Since Bat Mitzvah girl's ("BMG") birthday fell during the summer, it was only natural to plan it around a family trip.  The centerpiece of the trip would be a celebratory dinner at Tierra Sur in Oxnard, California, where DW had been wanting to go for some time.  The rest of our itinerary would be somewhat flexible.  Other than a prearranged day trip to Universal Studios and Channel Islands National Park, the remainder of our trip would be dictated by whim and fancy.

Given the occasion and because I simply can't stand Y on long flights, we booked UA J from EWR to LAX.  For accommodations, we booked 10 nights at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills (to take advantage of the fifth night free resulting in two free nights).  My only out-of-pocket costs were the car rental (cheaper with cash than points), the $55 a day valet parking fee at the Waldorf, and food and attractions.

Many thanks to an LA based DDFer, who prefers to remain anonymous, for his help in recommendations for a laundromat, salon for the kids, and other general information.  Your help was greatly appreciated.

Part 1 - Flight to LA

At EWR, we visited the UA Pop Up Lounge.  The lounge was pretty lame but still better than sitting at the gate.

After landing at LAX, we picked up our rental car from National.  Once again, National came through with an awesome free upgrade to a Ford Expedition. 

Part 2 - Arrival at the Waldorf

Prior to our arrival at the Waldorf, the concierge asked if we were celebrating a special occasion.  I replied that it was my daughter's birthday and, upon arrival, there were birthday balloons, fruits, and a piece of cake waiting for BMG in our room:

I won't go into many additional details about the hotel or our room, as the Waldorf has already been discussed in several other trip reports. 

Part 3 - California Science Center and the La Brea Tar Pits

Since our little one loves space shuttles, we decided to visit the California Science Center, where the Space Shuttle Endeavour is on display.

The last flight-qualified external tank for the space shuttle in existence.  These tanks were not reusable and disintegrated after detaching from the space shuttle about 70 miles above earth.

In addition to the space shuttle, they had a myriad of other space related exhibits along with an interesting exhibit about kelp forests and marine life:

Afterwards, we visited the La Brea Tar Pits, where they excavate pits in the summer.  Cover your eyes if you are offended by old bones.  (DW's aunt, who lives in LA, was quite insistent that we shouldn't go there.)

Part 4 - Petersen Automotive Museum

For this particular day, DW and I split up.  DW took the older kids to Universal Studios, while I went swimming with our little one and then took him to the Petersen Automotive Museum.  Since DW had the rental car, I arranged for the Waldorf house car to drop me and little one off at Petersen.

Once we discovered the kids room, little one didn't want to leave:

Part 5 - Channel Islands National Park

Channel Islands National Park comprises eight islands, five of which can be visited on a day trip with Island Packers.  After much deliberation and due to scheduling issues, we chose to visit Santa Cruz, the largest of the islands, on a day trip.  Information about Island Packers can be found here:

https://islandpackers.com/

We saw a large pod of dolphins on the way to and back from Santa Cruz:

Approaching Santa Cruz:

During orientation by a park ranger, we were warned to keep a close watch on all food, and to secure unattended food in a "Fox Box" away from island foxes.  The island fox, a descendant of the mainland gray fox, is the largest of the Channel Islands' native mammals, and about the size of a house cat.  On Santa Cruz, the foxes hang out in the campground and near the picnic tables.  They are quite the opportunistic hunter and any unattended food is quickly snatched.

The "Fox Box":

While on Santa Cruz, DW and I took turns hiking as we landed a choice picnic table in the shade under a tree.  We didn't want to give up the spot.  Also, our little one got all prissy and decided he wasn't interested in hiking while our oldest decided to take a nap.  First I went hiking with BMG, and afterwards DW took off by herself for a while.

Afterwards, we went to the rocky beach to play and relax:

Part 6 - Walk of Fame and Touristy Hollywood

No visit to LA would be complete without seeing the walk of fame and Grauman's Chinese Theatre:

Afterwards we visited Madame Tussauds Hollywood and the Museum of Selfies, which were both a lot of fun:

Since it was Friday, we returned to the Waldorf to get ready for Shabbos.  The Jem Community Center, where we davened on Shabbos, was a short distance away from the Waldorf.  One of the Rabbi's sons invited our entire family for a Friday evening meal in his home.  On Shabbos day we ate at a kiddush in the shul at Jem. 

Since everything is electronic at the Waldorf and there is no access to the stairs, we had to arrange before Shabbos with the hotel for an escort each time we wanted to leave and return to our room.  Unlike our less than satisfactory experience at the dumpy Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu (adjacent to Chabad) where we stayed twice (never again), the staff at the Waldorf was more than happy to oblige.

The Waldorf owns several house cars, two of which are Rolls Royces, each costing approximately $550,000.  DW and our older kids were driven to Jem in the Rolls before Shabbos:

Since there is a minimum required age of eight to ride in the Rolls (they don't want car seats ruining the buttery supple leather), I walked with my little one to Jem.  Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity to be chauffeured in a $550,000 Rolls, DW and I later got a ride to Rodeo Drive:

Dorky shoes look great in a Rolls:

Part 7 - The Hollywood Hills

Another rite of passage for any trip to LA is seeing the Hollywood sign.  We drove up a winding path to Canyon Lake Drive for a view of the sign.  Despite the multitude of signs prohibiting parking under the threat of a tow, tons of cars were parked in the area.  My little one fell asleep in the car and, not being interested anyway, I babysat my little one and the car.  When DW and our older kids returned,  I went out to snap a quick picture:

Part 8 - Joshua Tree National Park

Since Los Angeles is the closest we would probably ever get to Joshua Tree National Park, we decided to drive there on a day trip (3 hour drive each way from Beverly Hills) and stay for sunset.

These cactuses are really prickly.  I had to "water" the desert and came back with a pin hole through my pants on one leg and a bunch of large black ants crawling up my other leg.  Not sure which one was more painful - the cactus prick or the ant bites.

Part 9 - Tierra Sur

In preparation for the Bat Mitzvah dinner at Tierra Sur, DW took the girls to have their hair and nails done:

Afterwards, we drove to Oxnard for dinner at Tierra Sur.  I had this vision of a restaurant with views of a vineyard.  Instead, I was disappointed to find a restaurant housed in a warehouse.  Although the menu was disappointingly sparse, the food was delicious. 

Spaghetti -  cherry tomato, tapenade, grilled broccolini, crispy bread, balsamic reduction:

Hamachi Crudo - melon, grape, kumquat, jalapeño gelée, taro root:

BLT salad with lil' gem lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, lamb bacon, tempura avocado, rye croutons, and bacon vinaigrette:

16 oz Boneless Ribeye (we divided it into two plates to share):

Sliders and fries for the little one because he simply wouldn't eat anything else:

Wood grilled salmon with citrus braised beets, cauliflower mash, swiss chard, and fennel chutney:

Part 10 - Malibu & Relaxing at the Waldorf

The following day, we again went swimming at the rooftop pool.  We then drove to Zuma Beach in Malibu.  After first stopping off at the Fish Grill, we spent several hours in the sand and surf:

After returning from Malibu, we relaxed at the Waldorf.  Since I had $500 worth of HH Diamond food and beverage credits to use, we spent some of it at the roof top bar, where I enjoyed a whiskey.  DW had a liquor while our oldest kid had a coke and tried to look all cool and grown up.

Part 11 - Our way home

The following day we again went swimming in the morning.  After checking out of the Waldorf, we stopped by Bibi's for brunch and some snacks.  We then made our way back to LAX, where we relaxed at the UA Lounge.  The UA Lounge at LAX is far better than the Pop Up Lounge at EWR:

The hotel owns two Rolls Royce cars along with a few Cadillac Escalades.  They will drive you and pick you up anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel subject to availability.
