Thanksgiving in LA

Or more specifically, West Covina, as thats where Oscars family lives. Since I got canned from my job we decided that there was no reason not to go there for a visit. So thats just what we did. It was a lot of fun too!

We flew in on Thanksgiving day, and as you saw in a previous post, we went straight to King Taco. If you've never been there you should go immediately!! If you are able to of course. Its so good!! After that we just visited with family before heading to dinner.

All of Oscars family was there, about 50 people. There were 3 turkeys, 2 hams, rice, tamales, and basically just tons of food. There was also a lot of alcohol.

Me and Oscar before dinner. I'm wearing the My Baby Jo dress I got at the Rhythm Rocker, with my Forever 21 cardigan.

Oscars sisters Kacey and Giselle.

After dinner they turned the dining room into a disco. I'm not exagerating either. There were disco lights, a fog machine and a DJ.

It was funny too because mostly it was the older people that were dancing. Oscar and I were so tired from our flight that we spent most of the even ing in the living room.

Friday or saturday, I forget which, we went to a show at Spikes. I don't remember the names of the bands. I do remember they were really good and there were 3 DJ's. A lot of people showed up too, so it was a lot of fun. Here are some random pictures from the night.

After the show we stopped at In and Out Burger. Have to say I'm not a fan. It was just ok IMO.

The next day we met up with my friend Cara who now lives in Echo Park. We went to the Dresdin Room for drinks, which was Oscars hangout when he lived in LA. If it sounds familiar its because it was one of the bars the guys went to in the movie Swingers.

 Later we went to dinner with his family.

I wish I would've taken better outfit pics. I got this sweater at a flea market in San Francisco.

The trip was a lot of fun and it was good to spend some time with his family.
