A New Place to Eat in LA

The LA Times has nice things to say about Church & State, a new French bistro that’s opened up in downtown Los Angeles, and which my high school classmate, the fabulous Yassmin Sarmadi, just happens to be a principal of (along with Steve Arroyo, who has apparently made a name for himself in the LA restaurant scene). If you’re in the LA area and are looking for some place new to try, why not check it out? And if you see Yassi there, tell her I said hello. I’ll be dropping by there myself the next time I’m in LA, which will be in November. I’m looking forward to it.

Have to write two articles, a column and finish a short story today, so guess what? No playtime for me until later this evening. But, look, I’ve left you Emmylou Harris, who sings better than I do. And is generally more awesome. It’s a fair trade. See you all later.
