My husband and I just returned from a fun weekend in Los Angeles. We drove up to attend Jeff’s company party — a 70s theme celebration with a great band, delicious food in a cool LA loft. Everyone dressed in costume and boogied to great 70s tunes. All the men wore platform shoes (I’m sure their feet were aching today) and one gal arrived in roller skates (and spent most of the night cruising and dancing around in her skates). Of course, I was still hobbling around in my knee brace (staying clear of skater girl). Those opportunities “to dance the night away” don’t happen that often these days. I told Jeff he owes me a night of dancing — when my knee is completely rehabbed.
Can you believe we left our camera at home? I’ll post some pictures later when we get them from the party photographer. There were some very creative costumes!
I had forgotten how fun the disco music was from the 70s. It was great inspiration. I can see a 70s disco party at our home coming soon … maybe even a 70s block party this summer.
We stayed the night at the new JW Marriott at LA Live (across from the Nokia Theater and Staples Center). The hotel is beautiful and so convenient to many of the popular places in LA. The Mixing Room (pictured below) is “cocktail central” and has an incredible wall of colored glass behind the bar.
The guest rooms were nicely appointed. It’s so nice to stay in a brand new hotel! I could have easily stayed for a week.
We walked over to The Farm of Beverly Hills (next to the Nokia Theater) for breakfast. The LA Live restaurant is The Farm’s 3rd location. It’s a great American style restaurant with fresh, organic foods. Great breakfast!
