There must be something that removes us from time & place when we "set our faces" on food : Last week when we were traipsing around the non-tourist parts of (LA’s) Chinatown, we oggled the dairy cases and photo’s of food in front of a local diner for so long, that we forgot about our parking meter. Same result as stanpnepa : a $65.00 ticket, no food, and a ticked off driver (me).
Silver lining : since we were still hungry, we were induced to stop at the food court of a new mall near the old Hughes Corp airport in Culver City. I knew there was a Jody Maroni’s in the court. The gals got Chinese at a place next door, my son discovered a lobster wrap/burrito thing nearby, and I reveled in one of Maroni’s jumbo dogs, gathering ‘intel’ on their physical layout (for a friend who’s planning some quick-serve places here in Colorado).
Skip Cassell’s and go to the Apple Pan on Pico, though I kept getting tickets there to until I discovered they have a parking lot. Those meter maids are evil.
I will be in Beverly Hills (a work function) in mid-June. I’m thinking about cabbing it to Cassell’s for a burger.
Last time we were in L. A. we went to Cassell’s, well—we parked the car about a block away—filling the parking meter in front of a police officer. We then walked to Cassell’s and found out it was closed (4pm). Going back to the car, about a minute later, we found a $100 ticket on the windshield (parking in a restricted rush hour zone). Now you think this meter maid could have advised us against parking there for the sake of public safety or smoother rush hour traffic. No![}:)] She just wanted to trick us.
So, as you can see…Cassell’s cost us $100 last time with no burger. Should I lose my grudge and go back?
