JM, Engagingly dull, 5.13.09
One of the shortest streets in LA also is one of my favorite street names. Is there another street shorter than Argonaut in Playa del Rey? Sleepier? More poetic? It's always gray in the morning, sunny in the afternoon, proximate to so many things that haven't changed (inside one right now that has changed without changing: Cafe Milan---was last here on Derby Day and marveled at all the incongruous photos of Laffit Pincay, Jr. on the west wall). So far away from elections, gangs, City Hall, peeling out, car alarms...la dolce vita at last. The ALS is hugging the south curb.
EARLIER: Argonaut (1.31.09)
