1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I finally tried out Republique on Sunday. I had the dry-aged burger and the caramelized white chocolate sabayon. I really enjoyed my lunch (as did my wife), and will definitely be back. The line was insane though, but it was Sunday afternoon, so understandable.

    Needed new heels for a pair of shoes with Danite heels and soles.

    One of the few (maybe the only) place around here that has Danite heels is Willie's Shoe Service, 1174 South La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles 90019.

    Picked up the shoes today.

    $54.00, which you pay in advance when you drop off the shoes.

    It took about two weeks. The shoes were ready exactly when they said they would be ready and the sent me an email telling me they were ready.

    They also offer a vast array of other services, like cleaning your shoes, restoring your shoes to like new condition, or making your shoes better than new.

    They are very busy doing all sorts of custom work. There's an incredible amount of stuff to look at (like the wall of lasts from custom shoes they have made I am standing in front of) and all sorts of other shoe related stuff.

    There is also a big robot in the window of Grey Goose next door to Willie's Shoe Service.

    If anyone remembers that Cajun/Creole restaurant that used to be on 3rd in the Arts District (next to Umami), it's becoming a Phillip Lim.

    Which location? I've been to the SM location twice since it's walking distance from my work and they don't execute as well. They do have a nice weekday daily $6 burger at the bar deal (a different burger each day) from 11a-4p.

    I enjoy the Sawtelle location much more but haven't been to the one Downtown or on Fairfax.

    On Thursday, went to the new Allen-Edmonds store in the Century City mall that opened earlier in the day.

    [​IMG]

    It's on the north side of the "remodeled" mall. All the men's stores are going to be on the north side of the mall.

    There were lots of shoes and other A-E product there.

    My friend who is visiting from out of town wanted to go to the IMAX-VR place at 157 South Fairfax (across from the Farmer's Market), so we went there last week. (It's the blue place.)

    [​IMG]

    It's an incredible value at $10.00 for approximately an hour of Virtual Reality experience.

    Here's my friend about to begin her VR experience.

    [​IMG]

    Have no idea how this place makes enough money to stay open, since an employee is with you during your entire VR experience (as well as putting the VR gear on you and taking it off afterwards), several employees work at the check in area, and they have to pay rent and other normal business expenses.
