Great link 8)

That is so cute that he takes lessons at the conservatory. I just imagine him in a private lesson room with a teacher like David Bowie. "Breathe through your stomach, Bret."

The Trashy Lingerie is too funny. I didn't know eyepatches were lingerie. :rolleyes:

I'll try to see some of these places when I get the chance. The Korean BBQ place looks delicious.

Oh man! At the 6/1 show, I think some employees from the Algeria place screamed out that they loved him. Anyways, he replied "Ooo yeah! They feed me crispy carnitas!" It was the greatest thing!

A lot of these places I've passed by!! My bro lives in Highland Park...next time I visit, I need to go to that soda place and stock up. I love finding odd carbonated drinks. Its an odd hobby of mine :P

It must have been made pretty recently because it talks about the guys having to leave to film the HBO show. And Bret talks about Largo having moved to La Cienega, which just happened in June, I think.


I always remember passing Trashy Lingerie when we used to go to the Beverly Center. Some things stay the same.

Thanks for the post, Pearl. :D

Now we know where his, quite frankly, amazing selection of animal sweaters comes from!

That is hilarious! I can't tell you how many birthday parties I had at Moonlight Rollerway when I was a little girl.

Those places sound awesome. Too bad he doesn't do a list of his favorite NY places.
