Incredibly impassioned performance from The Mountain Goats!

Celebrate Black Friday with friends at Tuna Canyon Park

As someone who enjoys his occasional blatant consumerism, I spent this year’s favorite shopping day in much more serene surroundings.  After an incredible brunch with friends in Topanga Canyon, we journeyed on to Tuna Canyon Park.  The air was so clear we could see for miles, even all the way to downtown Los Angeles.  After the sun set, Sushi (and Sake).  What a wonderful day.
