For reals. My goodness. Brussel sprouts, burgers, pizza, kale salad, s’mores and more. Are you joking? Great vegan food in a beautiful old theater. The bathrooms are rad too, by the way. So if you’re in the neighborhood (or not! We drove there at dinner time and it took about 90 minutes!) go eat some vegan goodness at Mohawk Bend on Sunset in Echo Park, Los Angeles!

I’ve seen Tori Amos on every tour since Little Earthquakes. And 2012 marks the 20th anniversary of that album. So when I heard Tori was playing her Night of Hunters tour in Seattle (I live in Portland) in the middle of December I knew I had to go. But it meant driving from Portland to Seattle in December. ugh. I was worried but bought the tickets any way and arranged to go with one of my sisters. As the day approached I freaked out about the weather, overnighted the tickets to my sis and gave up on seeing her this time out. Cue heartbreak.

The following weekend we just happened to be in southern California and so did Tori! But tickets had been sold out for months. Husband spent time on craiglist trying to find tickets that were reasonable prices and decent seats which proved challenging. Again, I gave up. Then my genius husband decides to check ticketmaster just in case and guess what? We got thirteenth row 4 hours before show time. SO cool. Off we went to dinner at Cafe Gratitude and a memorable show. Her voice is still incredible and I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish. SO grateful!
