    I did my shopping today for the week at the Hollywood Farmer's market on Fairfax. Picked up a fine looking grass-fed tri-tip and center cut chops from the meat markets and some other goodies from Monsieur Marcel like olive oil and pasta.

    Anyway, I believe there is a Mendocino Farms just across the street next to Trader Joe's. I'll give it a try!

    How was the steak? It's the only thing I've had there that was somewhat of a disappointment. Still, what a fantastic restaurant.

    Oh, and the Shrimp Po' Boy? Killer. It's got candied jalapenos, which are incredible.

    The Steak BLT was incredible. The bleu cheese crumbles added a ton of flavor to it.

    Anything Mendocino Farms does is fucking great. They have this duck confit sandwich every so often that is like the nectar of the gods.

    I walk by that place on my way to the subway. Already seen a few unfortunate clods stumbling out of there.

    Is that street food fest going to be super packed with hour lines at every vendor? That's what happened to the one that was near downtown a year ago. Was not fun at all.

    I'm not sure I could put away $15 of Hite. Bump up to that $20 option instead. I know I can put away $20 of Newcastle or Blue Moon.

    LA Food and Wine Festival is coming up soon. Good line up this year

    Looks like I am in for one of those Zimmern events already. Swine and Wine (pig with pinot) looks good too!

    It's also practically next door to a venue he's been to before.

    For some reason I thought it was much closer to the Bootleg. Never mind. it's just "in the neighborhood."

    Yeah, the Bootleg is a half mile in the opposite direction from my place. Both walking distance though.

    I realized this when I saw the MacArthur Park sign as I was driving away, haha. I get so turned around in that area. Which is dumb, because it's very straight-forward.

    WANT.PASTRAMI.NOW! Looks good TG- Love Langers! I've always thought The Hat had decent pastrami too. And Johnnies down in SM.

    I ate at Stone Brewery on the way back up from SD last night. Rather disappointed with the food experience. We had Boar's Ribs, Cesar Salad and a Hummus plate. The ribs and salad were just ok. The ribs had a cinnamon twang to them and were tender but not spectacular enough to justify the price. The hummus was so bland we sent it back- very rare for me to do something like that but it was warranted.

    On the upside, the landscaping there cannot be beat. Perfect night in the beer garden. And, of course, the beer! I got a growler filled up with Saison du Buff. I also had a pint of High Water Brewing's Hop Riot IPA on tap. Happy times!

    The Hat and Johnnies are both awesome. Any Pastrami fan needs to get to Oinkster in Eagle Rock. They smoke their meat a little longer, and it's got a really good rich flavor. They make great fries as well and have good beer on tap.

    The Hat is one of my favorite places to go for pastrami in LA; still haven't made it to the Oinkster, though, despite my semi-regular trips to Eagle Rock.

    Any suggestions around the Shrine for pre-dinner / drinks, or is the best bet starting at LA Live?

    You could do LA Live or there's a ton of great stuff around the 7th/metro area and just take the expo line from there. it's like a 10 minute ride to the Shrine.
