Little Dom's

A new fave for Chris and I is Little Dom's in Silverlake (yep related to Dominick's). This looks like one of those neighborhood bars / restaurants that's been their for decades but it's not. This place is new with an old feel. The decor is all recycled from various bars and restaurants. A little pricey for lunch at least for us it is but for cocktails and apps it's just right. This is usually a stop for us before a concert or a show. Get the rice balls they are totally amazing and try one of their cocktails - you will love 'em!

The first Sunday of every month is a Flea Market at Pasadena City College. Chris and I try to get there often and when we do we always leave with a cart full of fun stuff. This time we decided to bring the boy. Can he handle a Flea Market? This child is impatient like most 5 yr olds are and he can't really let you enjoy an hour or two of your favorite things so why would I torture myself?
We gave the boy his favorite shark made in China by way of Paris and told him we were going to a Flea Market. He seemed excited but "What's a Flea Market?" well Maxwell you will soon find out. Several cool things about this Flea Market are it's free and most of it is in a 4 story parking garage. So we started out at 10am straight to the parking garage and boy was he surprised. When you look at something you do often from a child's point of view you see things quite differently and suddenly there were toys everywhere! Funny how I'd never noticed them.

Chris in the $2 record bin and what does he find? My favorite album!

At the end of the day Maxwell spent $5, Chris spent $16 and I strangely enough spent $0.
