Bar Mitzvathon 2012

So here we are in Los Angeles… cloudy, chilly, sprinkly Los Angeles. Seriously, that sucks!

I’m typing from my friend’s office in the pool house. There’s no heat. I could really use some heat right now!

I dropped Helaine off at Stef’s place in Hollywood. They are now shopping at The Grove, adjacent to the Farmer’s Market and CBS Television City.

We are in California for a Bar Mitzvah. If you think of Bar Mitzvah at all you probably think of a Saturday morning religious service then a party at night. It usually doesn’t work that way with out-of-town guests.

Last night there was a nice dinner at a local Italian restaurant. Late this afternoon we’ll attend the service at a synagogue just off Mullholland Drive in Bel Air with the reception to follow.

Nope–not done yet!

Tomorrow morning there’s a brunch for the out-of-towners at a local hotel.

This is the same way we did Stef’s Bat Mitzvah around 12 years ago. It’s amazing the organizational skill necessary to pull it all together.

In between scheduled events we’ve got our own plans. That includes dinner in Malibu tomorrow. Clicky will be attending. We’re scheduled for sunset–if it’s even visible.

If I tried to live this lifestyle on a regular basis I’d be broke before the end of the month!

By the time our Monday flight rolls around we’ll limp onto the plane then sleep to JFK.

    My aunt and uncle lived in Chatsworth For a while and we lived in northern California. I can picture the CBS building and we loved going to the Farmers Market when we would visit. Oh the memories! Have fun!

    We’re heading to a Bar Mitzvah/Bat Mitzvahthon ourselves at the end of April for TRIPLETS! All new to us, so I consulted with my top Jews for what to give for gifts. Really looking forward to it!
