Medical School Reunion, UCLA School of Medicine
(before it was the David Geffen School of Medicine)
Class of '86, May 20-23, 2011
*apologies to anyone in L.A. I didn't have the chance to see..., and Merle didn't come along for this trip.
Had a chance to catch up with Prachit at Jerry's Deli in Marina Del Rey. They certainly have better Reuben sandwiches (samiches?) there than in Albany.
I had a chance also to hang out with Lisa A., here posing for the pic taken by the camera's timer.
After hanging out in Pacific Palisades for a little while, we picked up her daughter Wednesday, and helped nourish this young lassie by stopping at the taco truck.
Afterward, I had a chance to catch up with classmates Jon Zirn (JZ) and The Yig, at their hotel, the Fairmont in Santa Monica. Everyone looked older except for The Yig.
Had a chance the next day to visit with my dear mom, and we celebrated by both wearing blue shirts.
I got to skip the butterfly requirement.
While waiting for the dinner rendezvous on Saturday, I walked along the bluffs on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. Here with the SM Pier in the distant background, you can see that I was too distracted to even remove my own earphones.
We had our own reunion at dinner Saturday night dinner at Katsuya in Brentwood, a very trendy restaurant (we saw Christian Slater outside!!), that previously was a divey bar named Mom's...back in the day.
