Royfest 2007: Day 4

I got to work today and the boss said, "I thought you were supposed to be off today." I told her I'd go home if she wanted me to, but alas, I stayed. Roy was alone again. Lord knows what trouble he caused...

I didn't eat lunch today, so I was starving when I got home. We couldn't decided what we wanted to eat but Roy was pretty adamant about one thing--"no more chili." Hmmm...Chicken? But will it be Roscoe's or Zankou? We flipped a nickel. Jefferson meant Roscoe's; Montecello meant Zankou. And the winner is...

I hadn't been there for a while, but it hasn't changed since last time. We were greeted at the door by a voice made for the blues and shown to a table in the corner. We both ordered the same thing--fried chicken and waffles.

I ordered a side of grits. Mmm, buttery goodness.


It was delicious. Roy was a happy and well-fed nephew.
Both of us too full to do much else, we settled in for a movie--one of my favorites--Leon.
"Dis is from...Mathilda."

DUDE!!! You went to the HOLLYWOOD Roscoe's?! That's not even real. Everyone knows the Roscoe's on Pico (at La Brea) is the only Roscoe's that matters!!! Sheeesh. I'm embarrassed for you. You posted your fox paw for all the world to see.

You are sooooo Hollywood! Roscoe's, Carney's. Since you're concentrating on the area, you must go to Musso & Frank's for a martini. The food is just OK, but the martinis are killer!

Monkeygurrrrrl--I LIKE the Hollywood Roscoe's and I'm not afraid to say it. I also (gasp) go to the Oki-Dog on Fairfax. So there!

Ellen--I was thinking of Musso & Frank's, but I'm kind of intimidated by it.
