The Gold Standard has been an annual event thrown together by the LA Weekly Magazine for the past four years. Since LA Weekly is my place of employment, I get to enjoy a complimentary admission and gorge on free food for a few hours. I’ve only gone twice. The first year of the event and then this year. This is an event for the purely hardcore foodies – it was a hot day and the place was extremely crowded.
We had to park three blocks away since the event parking was closed off when we got there (what the heck, guys). I do consider myself somewhat of a “foodie” but I would never actually pay the full price to attend the Gold Standard.
I just finished reading the first two books in The Harry Houdini Mysteries series. I’m a big fan of the mystery genre having been raised on Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. This series is in a similar vein with magic thrown into the mix.

On February 29, 2012, Disneyland decided to open the park for an entire 24 hours. Gizzy B and I are both annual pass holders and we didn’t want to pass up the chance to be at the park after hours. We thought it would be cool to hang out at the park at 2am in the morning and be able to say that we did it. We just didn’t anticipate the insanity of having every single Southern California Disney fan show up that day and night. Apparently, everyone had the same idea. It was insanity!
