Saw Mann's Chinese Theatre, but couldn't get to the famous cement hand and footprints because they were setting up for the premiere of Mission Impossible 3 at 7PM. Elvis was nice enough to be out and mingle with the crowd.
Venice Beach is known world wide for its strange residents who set up shop along the walkway and also for the vintage surf shops. Muscle Beach is at the end of Venice Beach, although no one was currently working out on the equipment when we were there.
Met up with Judy, Victoria's friend and we headed to Santa Monica Pier for dinner. Ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant. Our waiter was Jordan and he kept us very entertained for the 2 hours of so we were there. Food was very good and the atmosphere is extremely fun.
After dinner, we strolled along the pier and played a few arcade games. Drove Judy to her car and headed to the hotel in Burbank.
