Spending 4th of July weekend with my hipster dad 

We went to Animal for brunch at around 12pm during the hottest hour. So we hung out there and hid from the sun for a very good while. Really really enjoyed our coffee and food though! We even shared some pretty brilliant ideas.

We shared an appetizer: chicken liver toast. Nom nom nom…

My dad got the pastrami reuben benedict on rye toast with sauerkraut, hollandaise and island sauce, with a soft egg and I got the foie gras, biscuit with maple sausage gravy. As much as I love savory sweet, I think the gravy is a bit too sweet for me but the foie gras is cooked to perfection. After our relaxing brunch, we headed to Abbot Kinney. Yup not a good idea because it was still very hot and sunny, but I did pile on layers of sunblock! And we had a great time walking around leisurely. (I hid from one shade to another)

IDV is such a cute store. I would move in if I could! I mean… You can tell I’m obsessed. I didn’t even mind that it’s an outdoor store without AC.

And look at this awesome mural. LOVE!
