Just wanted to add my appreciation.  It takes so much effort and diligence to write and photograph and post...I hope it enhanced, and didn't detract from, your trip.  Thanks so much. Kol hacavod.

I have to say I played with the exposure on those pics, in real life it wasn't the same. If I have time I'll post the originals.  (somethingfishy, any thoughts? )

Wow, great pics and TR. Sorry about the sun burns; they're a really fun-killer. Glad the trip overall was a success! I hope things worked out (for food, etc) in LA.

Fun-killer is really an understatement. It still hurts.
LA was great. In a nutshell :

Ate breakfast at La Brea Bagel. Was very good. Cruised around Hollywood Blvd, wasn't in the mood of doing anything (second time in la). Went to Ralphs for shabbos food.

Shabbos was relaxing. I realized 5 minutes after the zman that my hotplate doesn't work. So we ate room temperature on Friday night. Bought a new book from former CIA Director /Secretary of Defense Leon Pennata, very interesting read. And that's all!

Went Motzei to Nagila pizza, had the spinach and vegetable pizza's. It's Ok. Nothing to write home about.
Then we went to Munchies for ice cream and to bring home for the kids. IC is not new York quality and of course not the rassel (how do you spell it?).

Sunday we had a late brunch at Cafe Elite. Greek and Cesar salads were delicious! But for some reason the person at the register decided not to tell me that the omelet comes with a salad of its own. Oh and they charged me for the coffee. I'm used to it being complimentary when you spend 40 on a breakfast.

We went to the Citadel Outlet Mall since we really wanted to shop, and we're used to Woodbury Commons prices. I really liked the place, and bought a few things.

I should mention a small jewish clothing store on the block next to cafe elite. Good stuff for great prices. Not sure of the name.

For dinner we went to Tipats. Awesome awesome food. Had the potato bleek soup, and the boneless rib-eye medium rare. Best onion rings I ever had. Fries and bread pudding was just ok (I'm not sure if we actually got bread pudding, might be they made a mistake. I didn't see where the name comes from).

I booked our Lax -  EWR tickets within the 24 hours. There was no economy seating open. When I spotted two seats I quickly booked it through my father's account, and figured I'll transfer him some UR once I'm back. Turns out he doesn't need it. Yay me

Great TR. Thanks again!

1. How was the Andaz?
2. You flew back on UA PS? If so, how does it compare to BusinessFirst on the 764?

Andaz is very hipster. Nothing special about it. Nice lobby but very busy.

Flew back economy plus. Flight was under 5 hours.

Btw I looked at first class. Same lie flat seats, just the cabin had a different formation.
