I had the most authentic American Birthday dinner tonight, a mountain of meat at the Doctor Hogly Wogly Tyler Texas Barbeque. And I mean a MOUNTAIN of meat. Gen and Zee took me there as a birthday treat, and right now, I can hardly move I am so stuffed.
The food was terrific, the atmosphere extremely authentic and the service top notch with a bunch of middle aged, gum chewin’ women charming us all. They even came out and sang a short birthday song to me, Achapello style! It all felt like I had somehow slipped into a 1950’s Americano timewarp.
We were joined by one of Gen and Zee’s friends, a successful LA based producer of TV and features, and in true LA style, we ended up swiftly talking shop. That's what I love about LA, everyone is in the film or TV business and its always OK to talk about movies. Always!
Onwards and upwards!
