Avenue Q at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center

My first puppet musical...I know it sounds pretty cheesy and maybe even a bit childish. But this is not your ordinary sesame street puppet. This is more of the rated R sesame street puppets. I heard a lot of great things about the Avenue Q and so I jumped on the chance when it came to the Cerritos Performing Arts Center. I haven't been inside the CPAC since I was in high school, so it's been over 10 years. You can catch my review of CPAC on yelp.

I would suggest Avenue Q for people who just graduated college and have no idea what they want to do in life. That was ME! I completely fell in love with every single character in the play. I felt like they covered a wide array of different phases that one will go through in life. Just a fair warning...there will be puppet drinking and puppet sex! oh my!

So if your ever wondering whats your purpose in life...come watch Avenue Q and it will definitely give you a different presepective in life!! I loved it.

New Thing, Week 4: dineLA brings us to The Sky Room

I've never been to the Sky Room in Long Beach. This time my girlfriends and I took advantage LA dine week and the preset menus at the Sky Room.

Did you know that the Sky Room opened up in 1926? Which makes this fine establishment 84 years old! That just amazes me...now a days everything is closing down. So it's great to see survival in this harsh economy. Patrons of this dear restaurant are of the older generation. One lady I met in the elevator came with her family told us that she came to the Sky Room when it first open and she said it has changed a whole lot. Then she turned towards me and whispered, "it was better back then". She was so cute, it made my night more memorable because of her.

The Sky Room also has a rooftop bar that yields beautiful views of Long Beach. But you should really come here for excellent food and service. I will definitely come back for a special occasion.
