Hot find: Los Angeles - Outfest, thru 7/16/17.  Wonderful films either by or about the LGBT community.  Check it out at the DGA in West Hollywood.  Some really inspiring, talented stories. (And a perpetual open bar in the reception area--can't beat that!) 

NYC - Cost of Living, Manhattan City Center Theatre thru 7/16/17.  NY Times Critics' Pick, a funny moving portrayal of the working and romantic relationships between two disabled people and their able-bodied caretakers. And it features my friend Victor Williams.

On being an author, working in Hollywood, having New York attitude in laid back Los Angeles, hiding a young adult mind in an adult body...and other things...

Past  finds: * - Switzer Falls, Angeles National Forest, LA. Great hike with a cool payoff at the end.

* -  Ricardo Steakhouse, Spanish Harlem NYC. Fun, tasty place to celebrate a birthday. 

* -  Awesome handmade goods.
