We started out 2009 the best way possible, by hitting the snooze button on the hotel alarm clock. After finally deciding it was probably a good thing to get up and moving, we met up with David and Amie to grab lunch at Poquito Mas, a great Mexican fast food restaurant when you want a good inexpensive Mexican meal. Afterwards we headed back to the Gibb’s apartment and spent most of the afternoon snoozing, playing Mario Kart and watching British mini-series (Amie and Kristen are big Jane Austen fans).  Though we didn’t go out and run around the city, it was very nice to relax and reenergize before our foray the next day into Anaheim and Disneyland.

Paradise Cove Beach Cafe

Paradise Cove Beach Cafe

 One of our favorite places to visit while in Los Angeles is the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe in Malibu.  My sister-in-law and her husband took us there for lunch on our first visit out to see them and we instantly fell in love with the place. (Granted that may have been because we saw Pam and Tommy Lee having lunch there that day)  The food is great and the views of the Pacific Ocean and the Malibu beach are second to none. 

Although the menu has a little bit of everything, I recommend ordering a Fried Calamari appetizer. It is large enough for four to share and is a great way to start off the meal.  As to beverages, a local favorite is to grab a bucket of beers or a bottle of bubbly and OJ for mimosas and then sit out on the deck chairs and let the day pass you by.
