Dr. Pookie's cousin Eric is in town (he of the minor contretemps in Laguna Beach fame) and this time we headed inland and took a brief walking tour of downtown. And yes we did one of those things that you only seem to do when you're showing people around, and never actually do yourself, even though you live here... we rode Angel's Flight.

Dinner was at Bottega Louie. The ambiance still reminds me of a packed high school cafeteria, but I still have no complaints about the food and drink. All excellent. From the duck prosciutto bruschetta, through the lasagna, and on to the kiwi sorbet. We talked of art and libraries, cabbages and kings.
