LA Trip: Friday

Better late than never, huh?

This past week has been crazy busy with tying up loose ends at school and moving my stuff out of my classroom. When I took one final look at my empty classroom, I felt a pang of emotion, but then it was over. That’s a good thing though, right? If I was crazy emotional, then that means maybe I made the wrong decision.

Anyway, I have SO many pictures from my LA trip that I decided to break each post up into days. I also tried to put as many pictures into collages as I could. Your brain will thank me.

So naturally an early morning layover in Denver calls for one of these:

I was too early for the restaurant to serve me alcohol right away, but the wait was worth it.

Once Archana and I both arrived in LA, we found each other and checked into our hotel, the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills.

Then we did what else? Hit up Rodeo Drive!

I marveled at all the shops I cannot afford.

And then we had lunch at the Luxe. Average cheese plate. Delicious Cobb salad.

After some more window shopping and mirror selfies…

We stopped at The Cheesecake Factory to use the restroom get some drinks and cheesecake.

Finally, before we headed back to the hotel, Arch bought herself something pretty from…

After a short nap, we prettied ourselves up and took a car downtown to meet Arch’s friend Sheena at MoChica. This place had amazing food and will be my first stop the next time I’m in the area.

We hung out for a bit at Sheena’s and then hit up The Standard rooftop.

Afterwards, we went to Library Bar, which I of course automatically loved.

After a few drinks, things got a little weird…

The last stop of the night was Seven Grand, a famous whiskey bar.

Afterwards, it was time for a car back to the hotel for some beauty rest for Saturday!

I mean, really, how could you not love this view?
