Saturday marked the last day of Summer and first day of Fall although it’s still 99+ in Los Angeles.  So in thee Fall spirit I went to the last STREET FOOD CINEMA event at the Los Angeles Historic Park to watch one of my all time favs SUPER BAD.  Ha Evan singing These Eyes had me rolling lol.  We ate unhealthy greasy food truck food, kicked up dust from the lot and laughed at Fogell’s crazy rants.

PS: don’t ever rock your LITA’s to the park… I almost fell twenty thousand times…
