Breakfast at Metro Diner – LA (March 2010)

Photobucket
If you don’t hear from me again after this post publishes, it’s because Alan has murdered my ass. You see, Metro Diner is Alan’s favorite breakfast/brunch spot in LA and it is kind of a secret. Whoops, NOT ANYMORE. Now that I have published it in my blog, everyone knows! By everyone I mean approximately seven more people know!

So yeah, at this point I was still in LA. I think this is the day after the Arcadia soup dumplings meh-ness. We went out and got drunk right after that at this swanky speak easy style bar somewhere in West Hollywood. I forgot what it’s called but it was crazy. My drink was this cucumber martini thing which I suspect was just cucumber juice and like Georgie vodka (kidding!) but it was like forty five bucks a glass. I’m exaggerating. It was more like forty four. Anyways there were a bunch of celebrities there too like some cast member from Always Sunny, and Aziz Ansari. I also totally had a brain fart moment that night and made a complete fool of myself in front of them “important” peeps but that’s a story for another day.

ANYWAY, we got hammered blah blah so brunch was fo sho’ in order the next day. So we went to Metro Diner.

Okay. Yes. I suck. I am lazy.

I have an out-of-town friendslashblogreader, probably the only one who still does at this point (YO SKY!), who every few months sends me scolding text messages about the lack of activity on this blog. I met him when I was still so pumped about this thing and now as you can see, I am one big take out container full of LAZY. So here we go, I need to get rid of my backlog so the next few posts will be brief and just full of pictures and random commentary. And no spell or grammar check HAHAHHA good luck you guys.

This set is from my last trip to LA, which was jesusgoddamnchrist almost a year ago! You guys know how I’m super obsessed with the soup dumplings at Joe’s, right? Well on my LA trip we drove like an hour out of the city to Arcadia to Din Tai Fung, this big Chinese joint that supposedly has pretty rockin’ soup dumplings.
