Chillin with Mickey Mouse on the walk o' fame

Wake up to find that my cheek is surprisingly only a little swollen and hardly bruised- thanks to Nurse Phoebe's cold beer can compress :)

We wake up too late to get the Hostels free morning pancakes and decide to see a few sights before hitting the beach

Made it to the Chinese Theatre for a couple action shots, some star searching, a photobooth photoshoot, and some walk of fame photos

Afterwards we travel out to Santa Monica for lunch at what becomes known as our "regular place" thanks to the great food (Yankee Doodles).

Towel buying places turn out to be scarce but we manage to find a pricey place where we get the usual touristy towels (recommend packing one for the next trip, though i now seem to be making a collection of them).

Hostel Pub Crawl @ this awesome club that used to be a hair salon
The walk to the beach is very awkwardly set up- you have to cross a long, high overpass footbridge after an even more awkward step-path and end it with a long beach walk but it turns out to be worth it, the water's beautiful and the sands clean.

We check out the pier scene shortly, and then head back for that nights planned hostel event- hollywood pub crawl (did i mention this was a general sight-seeing party trip?) :)

The pub crawl turns out to be as much, if not more, fun than the Limo night! We go to 2 different bars (The Piano Bar and BigWangs) and then two clubs (one hair salon turned night club with the dryers still in it and the other more upscale one whose name escapes me ha). This night I ended without (thankfully) falling on my face :D

Next time you go by the Chinese theater make sure to visit the Hollywood Roosevelt that is nearby. Lots of celebs hangout there, Marilyn Monroe lived there. Lots of history and great architecture.
