More from the State Theatre. The first three shots are from the basement, where a restaurant once operated in the #1920s . #dtla #historiccore #architecture #moviepalace
The Loew’s State Theatre from @official_lahtf ’s All About tour last month. Opened in 1921, the #StateTheatre has been off limits to the public for 20 years because it was leased to a church. The church has since vacated, opening the door for a new tenant and the possibility of restoration. #dtla #moviepalace #architecture #1920s #historiccore #bringingbackbroadway
Said goodbye to #DontheBeachcomber today. Rumor has it that the business will live on and move but the 60-year-old building is done for. The staff doesn't seem to know what's going on, but in just the hour or so we were there, workers had started taking down decorations. So clearly the place doesn't have much time left. A very sad end to a historic place rich in Polynesian theming. Glad I got to see it one more time. #SamsSeafood #tikibar #tiki
#fbf to the #EarlCarrollTheater tour with @official_lahtf last month. I can't wait to see what the new owners do with the place. #EarlCarroll #architecture #artdeco #hollywoodhistory
This motel was demolished today but luckily the sign is intact (for now). Hoping it and the other amazing historic #Reno signs that are threatened can be preserved. #vintageneon #vintagesigns #midcenturymodern #ElRayMotel
Unicorn spotted! #BMWZ1
My first time passing through #GuadalupeCA . What a cool little town. It was a surprise to see a Japanese name on the #SethThomas clock in the middle of town. The Katayama family ran a jewelry store in the 1920s. The clock remained even after they went out of business (guessing due to Japanese internment), and in 2016 it was restored to working condition. Very cool to see Japanese-American history being honored in this small town. #Highway1 #CabrilloHighway #SantaBarbaraCounty #architecture #vintagesigns #antiques

This is a cool car--not just a "cool for a Kia" car but a genuine object of desire. #KiaStingerGT
Thanks for the memories, 2017! #bestnine
Yesterday was fun. I created that mud tsunami 😁. #HungryValley #Gorman #Truckstuff
#Nissan went all in on #StarWars for this year's #LAautoshow . I didn't go to the show today so I didn't see the AT-M6 Titan. #LAAS2017 #LastJedi
On my way to level 2 adulthood.
My first #Tesla press conference was as exciting and exhausting as an entire day covering a major auto show. The flood of info was just non-stop. Hope you can deliver, Tesla. That #TeslaRoadster looks sweet. Also, it accelerates like an F1 car. #TeslaSemi #TeslaSemiTruck
