SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Everywhere I travel, I always ask, “What’s the local food here?” Seems every place has something edible they’re known for, and our beloved downtown LA is no exception.

Among the classic downtown foods we enjoy on my “Disneyland” tour of Downtown Los Angeles, delicious eggrolls at Hop Louis, since 1941, fantastic French Dip Sandwiches at Phillipe’s, since 1908, mouth-watering, fresh strawberry whipped cream cake from the Phoenix Bakery, since 1938, and tasty taquitos at Cielito Lindo, where they’ve been perfecting the recipe since 1934!

Yes, it was the perfect day to mosey through Keith McCormicks’s Collector Car Show or browse the Braniff Airline Exhibit, which featured vintage airline advertising and a collection of 14 vintage uniforms, most designed by Pucci and Halston.

The real fun, however, would come later in the evening, in the Riviera’s swanky Grand Ballroom with Charles Phoenix’s slideshow in full swing.
