Johnny and I went to lunch last Saturday at The Beverly Hills Cafe, a local restaurant that specializes in sandwiches and salads. Here's a copy of the front of their menu. Notice the blue star with their name in the lower right hand corner.



They have artwork on the walls, and I took some pictures. I'll show some more on Saturday, but today, I have some blue to share. See the blue moon?


Here's a bit closer shot so that you can fully appreciate the blues in the picture.

This picture is on a back wall. Once again, the blue moon. Maybe they should rename their place to Blue Moon.

I like those paintings because they are modern, yet still have that old Hollywood vibe, like the restaurant's name.

Good morning Sally, I'm up early to try and visit before we are off on another photo shoot.

I would love to eat at the Beverly Hill's Cafe. The art is interesting and the blue moon is odd but fits the feeling of the art. I know you enjoyed a date with your hubby.

Hugs...Jeanne

Sally,
Just wanted to say thanks for hosting.
I did do a post, but decided not to link here as it is of a serious nature, and most of the time these are supposed to be fun.

Come by and visit if you like, and I'll try to post some fun things next week.

blessings,
Barbara Jean
