Last night my bff, work bestie and I went to Hollywood for an evening of Django Unchained related entertainment. First we had dinner at Toi on Sunset, this hip little Thai place we’ve been going to for years that’s famously awesome. I had forgotten but there’s a poster for the Pulp Fiction soundtrack that’s signed by Quentin Tarantino from their “best customer” and we ended up sitting under so that kicked everything off appropriately. Then we went across the street to Meltdown Comics and I was finally able to get a copy of both issues of the Django Unchained comics that are out so far.
Afterwards we went to the New Beverly Cinema, a great revival theater that QT became the landlord of a couple of years ago to prevent it from being turned into a Chipotle. They had a double feature of Django paired with Buck and the Preacher, a Western directed by Sidney Pointer and starring him, Harry Belafonte and Ruby Dee. It was a good movie that showcased a lovely 19th century Black love story, like Django does.
We also got some bomb milkshakes at a place called MILK across the street from the theater and took them into the movie because the New Bev is cool like that. Still bought some concessions though because that’s how theaters stay alive.
This was my first chance to wear my new red dress from Domino Dollhouse. It’s a few days late but I felt very Valentines-y.
