Short Weekend in LA

Daniel | Aug 11, 2004 05:49 PM

I have a business trip in LA next week, and I'll be staying thru the weekend. I'll be at a hotel downtown Fri and Sat night. I'm looking for ideas for things to do and places to eat. I'm leaving late morning on Sun.

Last time I was in LA, I visited the Getty Center and had dinner there. It was a very memorable experience. I also toured a couple of Frank Lloyd Wright homes and went to the Sunset Junction street fair. Any thoughts on things to do this time?

I was thinking of visiting the Santa Monica Pier and Pacific Park, probably on Friday afternoon. Is that lame or a good time? Any thoughts about places to have dinner around there? I'm looking for interesting cusine at a reasonable price.

I'd like to get to MOCA and possibly tour the new Disney Music Hall on Saturday. There's also an architecture museum that sounded cool. Is Pink's worth a visit for lunch on Sat?

Last year I had a good breakfast at the downtown restaurant of your former Mayor (I forget the name of the place). Any other downtown breakfast suggestions? I'm also looking for a cool restaurant for Sat night. I was thinking somewhere downtown or possibly in Silver Lake. I would appreciate any input.

If any of you have plans to visit Chicago, I'd be happy to pass along any information that would be helpful to you. Thanks in advance.
