Trip Downtown L.A. Christmas Eve 1998

Philip Stevens, Amy Fisher and I all went downtown on Christmas Eve of 1998. We had decided we wanted to go, and I told Philip that we'd go "sometime before Christmas." We barely made it!

We rode the subway, went to the Bonaventure Hotel, and rode their glass elevators. We also saw the Downtown Library. Then we walked through the Biltmore Hotel to Pershing Square. There, they had an ice skating rink set up.

We also visited the MacArthur Park subway exit, and tried some of the delicacies at a local Mexican restaurant. We then went through Olvera Street to Phillipe's French Dipped Sandwitches, where we ate lunch. We the headed back to Union Station, and rode the Red line to the Blue Line, to the Green Line, to Norwalk Station, where my car was, and drove home.
