Today for lunch I tried Bru's Wiffle Place, a cute and unique place in Santa Monica on Wilshire near 24th Street.  They have all sorts of dishes with waffles, burgers, chicken, desserts, and serve alcohol, a yummy place. Not open for dinner though, and it does get crowded!

    Last night I went to one of my favorite clubs to see and hear live music, The Mint in West Los Angeles.  They had an interesting mix of up-and-coming musicians, including the bands Young Pandas, Ships Have Sailed, Bakkuda, Rosechild and Tiny Deaths.  Excellent sounds, a cozy and comfortable place to enjoy live music.  The Mint also serves food and a wide variety of drinks.  For more information, visit themintla.com.
