I decided last minute to cook on New Year's Eve. So I rushed down to Santa Monica Seafood to buy lobster. In and out in 20 minutes even though it was mobbed. Lobster was heavenly of course. Picked up some salmon too, equally fabulous.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
