Ahhh ... sunny day in a beer garden at Venice Beach.

I was soooo looking forward to this Saturday because the weather forecast was in the high 70's / low 80's and it was February!  I had brunch plans in Larchmont, but the moment it was over I trekked over to Venice Beach to join some friends who were enjoying the sunny weather at a beer garden.  Parking was crazy!  I guess everyone else in town had similar ideas to head to the beach!  Some of the little lots were going for as high as $12!  (crazy)  I admit I was quite cranky by the time I parked my car, but once I started walking along the beach and saw all the people jogging, sunbathing, hanging out ... I realized (once again) how lucky I am to live in LA.  I mean, it's the middle of winter!

Things only got better from here - I met up with my friends, drank some beers (sidenote - why, oh why, do people drink beers? you have to drink so much to even get a buzz, and by that time you are so bloated and bladder-challenged.

Me and a beer ... they didn't have hard liquor (sigh)
..)  - to be fair, this place had the best beers I've ever tried.  Quite refreshing, but I did miss my martinis.   :)  The pretzel, however, was a plus - huge, warm, soft on the inside ... mmmm...

The beer garden was super crowded, but for the most part people were friendly and chill.  Only a few people were grumpy including the guy who tried to steal sybil's chair - but no worries - we got the chair back!  i think people try to mess with us sometimes because we look so docile and sweet - boy, are they wrong!

the day at the beach ended with a beautiful sunset.  A group of people were on the sand waiting like us.  Also, lots of couples were out there, practicing for valentine's day, i guess.  :)
