My brother Matt took a weeks vacation for his birthday last month, and on the last weekend of his vacation he came to LA to visit me! It was a short visit, he arrived Friday night and left Sunday morning…but we packed a lot of stuff into that time. It was his first time seeing my apartment so it was fun to visit and show him how I live. Saturday morning we went to do the Hollywood sign hike and I made sure to show him the bat cave too. I used my fitbit to track the hike but it only tracked the hike up and not the one down.
After the hike it was lunchtime so I took us to Wurstküche in the Arts District which was a big hit with Matt. He got to get a fancy sausage & beer and I got a weird vegetarian sausage that was made of potato and a peach soda. The Last Bookstore is nearby and that’s a favorite stop of mine so we went there as well and wandered around.
Later in the day we went to an Angel’s game. I wanted to take him to a Dodger’s game just so he could see their stadium and how crazy fancy it is, but they didn’t have a game there that day. The Angel’s stadium is really nice too though, it was my first time there. Whenever the home team gets a home run (there were two this night), fireworks go off!! I am also thinking I should be an Angel’s fan based on their store merchandise.
I didn’t buy anything from the store, but I did get my ice cream in a hat! I started to collect those little plastic hats they serve ice cream in at baseball games. I only have 3 so far; Dodgers, As, & Angels.
Since this was a birthday trip, I had to make sure he had a cake and candles to blow out too!
It wasn’t a long visit but we did a lot of fun stuff and it was nice to just catch up too. 🙂
