I love that bawdy redhead comedian Kathy Griffin and here's why. lol, because she starts all her stories in that fashion. I bought tickets months ago to her stand-up show on Saturday at Pechanga Casino in Temecula and have been excited to see her for some time now. I love her My Life on the D-List show on Bravo and my favorite DVD of hers is Allegedly, where she makes fun of the red carpet arrivals and talks about her visit to Kuwait to perform for the troops. If you haven't seen it, you have to NetFlix it. Anyway, we had really good seats and the hour and a half show flew by as she made fun of American Idol judges and shared her Paris Hilton story and her recent performance at a maximum state prison in Arizona. The thing about her comedy is that guys like her too and it's more like hearing crazy stories from a friend than it is a bunch of punch lines. While at the casino of course I had to hit the craps table but because dice games are illegal in Cali, it's done with cards, which is weird and the reason why I account for losing $80 playing ;). There buffett meanwhile is killer, I had prime rib and king crab legs before the show, yum.
The next day after getting in at 2 a.m. we were up early for a 9 a.m. hike in Malibu. Not much of a hiker, the 1.5 mile trek up was just difficult enough for me, but the views at the top made it worth it. You could see the Santa Monica Pier, the ocean, my office and downtown LA even. Raphael and I went with his cousin and his friend and 3-year-old. Here are some photos.
