We've Got Movie Sign.

One other thing we've got to do while we're all together is have big ol' riff-fest. So far, both Saturday and Sunday evenings have been left open for that purpose, so as a group we decide when we want to do it.

But we also need to decide what to watch. One movie I'd like to throw into the ring is "Volcano," the turdfest that stars Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Heche, a lot of familiar L.A. sights, and tons of man-eating magma. It just seems right after we'll be spending our days touring the city. Does anybody else have any other suggestions? Let's hear 'em!

A Tentative Itinerary.

So, while you all are working on your traveling plans (you are doing that, right?), here is a tentative itinerary for two days of activities. I'm working under the assumption that folks will be using Friday, August 29, and Monday, Sept. 1, as travel days. If that's not the case, that's fine and we can adjust accordingly.

Saturday, August 30
Walking tour day! We'll be checking out downtown L.A. on foot. We'll start at Union Station (for those of you going for the suburb option for your accomodations, we can ride the Metrolink train into the city), visit Olvera Street, the old church, Chinatown, have lunch at Phillipe's, and maybe see a few other things, too.

Sunday, August 31
Driving tour day! We'll hit some other hot spots, including Hollywood (the Walk of Fame and the Chinese, Egyptian, El Kapitan and Kodak theaters) and Griffith Observatory, and maybe also the La Brea Tar Pits, the Sunset Strip, Melrose, Rodeo Drive or anything else in particular anyone is interested in seeing.

I've intentionally left the evenings free on both days so that we can use at least one of them for a big movie riffing session. If there's anything else you guys would like to do or see, let me know and I'll try to work it in.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Cashews?
