    ZZZzzz...

    I thought about it. Then I realized it was going to be mainly crusty older women and loads of kids.

    edit: I used to own a photolab there at Fashion Island and went every year, food good, crowds bad

    Looks like fun, maybe I will stop by!

    So with the price of the tickets we get to eat the food or do we have to pay extra for whatever we want to try?

    Seems worth it enough :)

    What can I expect to pay for food though? I might be bringing some fellow broke college friends with me...

    I was at Fashion Island (in the Mondial) ~ 10:30 this morning, headed to the Apple store. I got a kick out of watching this guy in a yellow Mera (308 fake bodied Fiero) blow by me on Macarthur, then speed in and out of the parking lot at Fashion Island.

    When I left, there was a black 430 coupe in valet.

    Kinda sucked. Jan and Dean were ok. We left just as Hootie was getting started. The sound system was pretty bad, there were about 5,000 people between us and the stage, we were stuffed, and it was just Hootie and the Blowfish after all, so we bugged out. If the idea is to get people into the restaurants after sampling the food here, they really need to improve the way they prepare and serve the stuff here. Good, but not enough to get me hooked.

    Nice to see you and the family Armen.

    Emil, were you driving the 355? Was that you we heard winding it out when we left? Sounded SWEEET! Nice to see you and the missus again.

    Jordan, don't forget to take the creme brulees out of the backseat.
