Night on the Sunset Strip

Bad iphone picture of Skybar
My friend Jen was in town from New York so we met up for dinner and drinks on the Sunset Strip, convenient to the London Hotel, where she was staying (and highly recommends, as opposed to the new W in Hollywood where she had a terrible stay the night before).  We started out with dinner at Il Sole on Sunset.  It was a nice quiet place to catch up, though the food was nothing special, I had the lobster ravioli (didn't seem like fresh lobster) and we had a bottle of montepulciano / syrah that was fine, though not particularly noteworthy.  We then headed over to Skybar for a couple of drinks.  Even though its been a couple of years since I've been there, it hasn't changed a bit.  The bouncers are still unnecessarily obnoxious and the crowd is the same; there was this random exhibitionist, but that's LA for you!  Still, we enjoyed ourselves; the outdoor view over LA cannot be beat, the dj was pretty good and it was nice to hang out and catch up with old friends.
