Treat for the Kids

photo collage of the Bob Baker Marionette TheaterSince 1964 the Bob Baker Marionette Theater has been entertaining children (and the young at heart) here in Los Angeles with wildly imaginative shows, costumes and performances.  Even today, in a world of Wii and high technology, old school storytelling with masterful puppetry still enthralls and delights our children (and us).

Current Show – Fiesta!
One of the theater’s most requested productions, “Fiesta” is a south of the border marionette extravaganza featuring everything from skating sombreros to dancing cacti. It was first presented in the theater in 1964, becoming an instant favorite.

If you are sightseeing with your children and touring Hollywood and Los Angeles, plan a late morning stop for them at the theater before lunch.  Your kids will love you even more.

Old Place, New Food

 

The oldest restaurant still grilling steaks and pouring martinis in Hollywood is Musso and Frank Grill on Hollywood Boulevard.  Anywhere you sit in the restaurant you can conjure images of world famous celebrity butts having been in that exact seat sometime in the past 95 years, enjoying fine grilled meats and seafood and mouthwatering cocktails.  Sure, the cigarette smoke is gone, and the glamour is somewhat patinaed, and yes, the waitstaff has aged, but this is a restaurant for the ages and a must see whenever you tour Los Angeles and Hollywood.
