Walking around downtown LA was super inspiring. We stopped in Clifton's Cafeteria which is the last remaining cafeteria from its era. We heard an older lady telling the manager that the first time she came to Clifton's was in 1941. The interior is decorated to resemble something like Yosemite. Natural wood fixtures, fake wildlife, a giant wall that looks like a forest - and then there's the upstairs dining room with the most gaudy wallpaper anyone could wish for. I didn't have a chance to try the food but I'm glad we stopped in. It is a must visit when downtown LA.

Oh god! It's so heartening to know Clifton's still exists in the bland corporate shitscape has that become this country.

I hope you didn't eat there though, cause that food is nas-tay!
