Before having kids, Kim and I used to go to the historic Old Town Bar (which has been around since 1892) for a drink from time to time. However, we didn’t realize that they served food back then. And when we did find out, we didn’t know that it was supposed to be really good.

On the way to the Pacific, the Michael W Travels family had a long layover in Los Angeles. During our time we had to deal with . The Most Expensive Luggage Storage Ever
