admrl u going to vanessa renwick @ MJT tomorrow perchance?

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Wednesday, 22 February 2012 22:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

No, I saw her show last night at CalArts and I think she is showing the same movies. I liked some of her work (Britton, SD is great) but there was quite a lot that didn't click for me.

Do y'all know any really great moving walkways in LA that are NOT at LAX?

Also here is something else we could potentially talk about:

I've had the Langer's and Philippe's sandwiches, both of which I enjoyed. I don't have much to add other than I probably should eat less sandwiches

i had a good south american-style banh mi from a food truck for lunch

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Friday, 24 February 2012 00:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

that sounds nice. What truck? Sorry if that's too personal a question

haven't really done the food truck thing in awhile but it was so so nice out today and i didn't bring lunch

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Friday, 24 February 2012 00:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

That does look nice. Isn't it beautiful today? So beautiful. I made lunch at home, sat on porch and looked at mountains. Los Angeles!

i've had both of these plus the godmother (bay cities deli).

bay cities is great but always crowded and too far away
also joan's on third sandwiches are always A+ imo (good celebrity stalking place too)

buzza, Friday, 24 February 2012 04:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

this is my local. it's not quite an east coast style italian sub shop, but they do a good sandwich. very limited hours, sadly.

larchmont village wine shop has my fav sandwiches. basic straightforward stuff but done really well. also the gals who make the sandwiches are sweet.

buzza, Friday, 24 February 2012 04:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

my favorite higher-end sandwiches are at the artisan cheese gallery:

the pickles they serve with the panini are to die for.

studio sub was never open whenever i walked by

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Friday, 24 February 2012 08:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

hat's the sandwich shop behind Intelligentsia in Silver Lake? Their sandwiches are pretty good I recall.

Can anyone ITT show me a great tamale?

Also - somewhere I can get good cornmeal pancakes.

Also - a bar that can reasonably be expected to be relatively quiet (no DJ, jukebox is fine so long as I can hear and get a seat/booth) on a weeknight around Downtown/Eastside. Tall order, I know!

A friend of mine recently took me to this place as she assumed it would be quiet and it was totally rammed:

http://www.yelp.com/biz/1642-beer-and-wine-los-angeles

It used to be a real dive when I lived in the neighborhood - my studio was just around the corner. Anyway, it would be great if there was any room. I reminded me of an SF-style bar, why don't we have more of those?

We went to Baco Mercat on Valentine's Day (completely unplanned, we were just walking by), and it is worth all the hype... Didn't get the sandwich, but the baco meatballs and the octopus salad were life-affirming.

My main local is http://www.mariosdeli.com/ but I like this place a lot too: http://www.mooresdeli.com/

Say Cheese in Silver Lake is sort of a mini Dean & Deluca and have great sandwiches: http://saycheeselosangeles.com/
Sweetsalt's BLT is tremendous too http://sweetsaltfood.com/

I like Westlake, it's a great hood.

i ate at that sandwich shop behind intelligentsia once, it was good

thread making me realize my sandwich intake has dropped off considerably since moving here :/

I...*think* everyone on the thread who's a regular got a birthday invite so remind me if you didn't but as y'all know, we'll be at Lou on Vine a week from tonight. Reminds me, though -- we need a place to hang out at in the area before Lou opens at six, since they don't take reservations. Any recommendations?

Ned Raggett, Friday, 24 February 2012 17:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also, Roky Erickson is playing the El Rey on Thursday... think tickets are still available.

They are, I was just looking at them!...I really don't like the most recent record, but I have passed up many chances to see him...

Also, what I am truly excited about is The Raincoats playing at Echo(plex?) next month

Buddy of mine got into the Louis CK secret show at the Improv last week. How'd he do that? Well he just showed up and paid the doorman $10. Got to meet Aziz Ansari and Elijah Wood afterwards.

my recommendation is to hang out in a different part of hollywood, because that stretch is a little desolate. either that or just drink at the bar until people arrive.

Dammit, all the podcasty shows I want to hit are sold out. Waiting in the airport for the flight down to Ontario now.
