a visit to L.A. + some epic karaoke moments

February 23, 2010

I went for a quick trip to L.A. a few weeks ago to have one last hurrah with dear friend and “road-dawg” Cory, before he moved to New York. Our days in L.A. were quiet, and our nights long…

The boys, minus one...

We managed to choose one of 3 weekends a year that it rains to be in Los Angeles, but no biggy. Most of our time was spent in a car or a mall or a bar, naturally.

At the food court in one of many Westfield Shopping centers. Riveting, isn't it?

We spent our first evening at Roger’s Exciting Tattle Tale Room in Culver City, which hosted an excellent karaoke night. I arrived thinking it would be full of annoyingly hip kids (like us) fighting over who gets to sing the week’s latest ironic classic rock song but was surprised to find that it was a genuine dive bar with genuinely dive-y customers. We had all our favorite ironic hits to ourselves.

none of us know who that girl is

We ate. We drank. We karaoke’d. And then we karaoke’d some more. More unflattering pictures here.

In Oakland a week before it was more of the same story. Everyone at home was eager to spend some quality time with Cory before his departure, and massive partying ensued.

Here’s me really showin’ ’em who’s boss with a little Rod Stewart at one of Rhett’s awesome parties in a West Oakland church-turned-loft. Sadly, one of the last.

So goodbye for now to Cory. Next stop: New York!
