HiddenLA had a get together at the Bounty last night. From the sounds emanating through the walls it seems they had a good crowd and a great time.
If you are looking for something to do in LA check out the HiddenLA website. A great source.

Gaylord passing...

Our beloved Susie, who owned and managed the sweet Cafe Mermaid passed away this morning. She worked tirelessly at her job, many hours and many morning cups of coffee served to the Gaylord residency. Once you got to know her she was a winner. We appreciate the time she was with us and Susie will certainly be missed. Our thoughts are with her, her family and co-workers. Bless you.

Classical Culture

Once again I went to listen to the Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra, this past Saturday night, in the mind blowing Walt Disney Concert Hall. This is only the 4th or 5th time I have done so since moving into the Gaylord just over 3 years ago. You have to remember it is so easy to get to Disney Concert Hall from the Gaylord and available tickets can be purchased for a very reasonable price on the night of the performance. The music I was able to appreciate on this evening was a program of Ginastera, Ravel and Stravinsky. Quite the intellectual mix which I am sure many Gaylord residents could appreciate. Take yourself sometime! It is a great night out. And don't forget to enjoy the gardens outside Disney Concert Hall during intermission. Enjoy!

If you love the Gaylord... will love one of my favorite places in all the LA area. The Huntington Library, Galleries and Botanical Gardens in San Marino (near Pasadena). I have been a member here for several years now and whenever a break is needed it is a great place to decompress. I find myself there a minimum of 2 times a month. Go and enjoy the beauty!

Do you have a favorite place to get away to? Let me know where it is and let's share.

Notable Resident from the Past

I am reading the old Gaylord Glimpses magazine from January 1928 and came across this wonderful tidbit under Social News;

" Miss Constance Talmadge entertained in her apartment with a dinner party for four on December 26th. The decorations were gorgeous red roses and her guests were Mr. and Mrs. Buster Keaton (Natalie Talmadge), and Buster Collier, Jr."

Buster Keaton being of course the great comedic silent film star. And the Talmadge sisters holding their own as impressive silent film stars along with their 3rd sister, Norma (the Talmadge apartment building, located at Wilshire Blvd & Berendo.) Buster Collier, Jr., another active actor & producer, was linked romantically to Constance. Constance may still have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6300 Hollywood Blvd.
Just imagine what fun those 4 had on that night of the 26th of December in the Gaylord! I wonder what apartment they were in?
