mary invited gen and I over to her house in mccarthur park, where her parents were making us a filipino feast. fried limpia, sweet coconut bread, lumpia, fried noodles, baked pork, and white rice!
convened at victo’s house before halloween festivities.
headed to downtown LA for a party in a loft. very little details. we knew it was IN skid row. we knew to look for a gate, with beetle juice on it. we knew the secret password to say to the bouncer: froth. we knew we had to go up a freight elevator. we knew there would be techno music. in retrospect, these details should have dissuaded us. but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
left the loft, and headed over to echo park house party on edgeware. found a hole in my bag, lost my wallet and phone. after a frantic scene, i found them both, and a bag of pita chips in the process. good vibes. graham took off his shirt, wore roxy’s gaga wig, and megan’s red riding hood cape. he found a sword. taco zone ran out of food, so we ate at the taco truck on alvarado and sunset blvd. it had three tvs.
