Did you see the free library picture? How cool is that! We had heard about this secret garden with a Wizard of Oz theme in the hills, so we googled it and found the address. Another reason to love google! Oh well, we will return and hopefully the magical place will be open. One of a number of Secret Stairs in Beachwood Canyon.
This one was right off Beachwood Dr. I had a moment where I thought I was falling backward…Whew! But that moment of terror was replaced when I made it to the top and felt like I was in a tree house! My eye caught the sight of the staircase. I was driving and found a parking spot along Beachwood Drive.

The stone stair case, nestled in the lush hillside among the gorgeous homes made me feel like I was in Europe. Hike or ride horse back up, up, up to the Hollywood Sign.

On your way you get a great shot of Burbank, Forest Lawn and the east Valley. Full of cool shops, eateries, a small theater and possibly the best people watching this side of Highland! A dream come true! The shops and restaurants in Franklin Village are very eclectic and fun. Great clothes and jewelry and a savvy very friendly owner. Teri bought a great dress and we had a cold beer. How can you beat that. They also have another location in Eagle Rock. Interesting people along the way. Did you see the shot of the two girls sitting drinking young coconut one recovering from a nose job …so LA.
Last stop was the Best Western Hotel on Franklin, where we at at the Coffee Shop and admired the mid century vibe.
There is easy parking off Carmen Ave. See the Marilyn shot. The restaurant itself was in the film Swingers and the food was delicious! They also serve IPA craft beers and some interesting wine. Related Video Shorts 0 Upload your video.

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I can't even describe how terrible this book was. The main character, who is also the author, has just gotten out of surgery and is in a drug induced haze in the recovery room where he has this strange stream of conscious thinking. The writer even writes in this strange stream of thought way. The book made no sense.

I don't even know if it was fiction or non-fiction based on the fact that the main character was the author and there were many randomly sprinkled political history facts from the early 's. He kept talking about some person named Hollywood Syd, who apparently was the only Rightie in a very liberal Los Angeles. I'm not sure if any of this was real or just his drugged thinking.
He also told random stories about when he was young. I'm glad this was a freebie because it made no sense, the writing was barely ok, and there just was no plotline to a story I don't often say this but this book was just unreadable and a waste of my time. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. It's rare for me to fail to finish a book, but I found this one unreadable.
It jumped about all over the place for no apparent reason. It followed a character who didn't evoke empathy. The trouble with books about people leading boring pointless lives is that they can also seem boring and pointless. If you are a fan of Jack Kerouac then you might like this, but I have to confess I didn't like "on the Road" either. I have to agree with Pat here, the book was all over the place and I certainly did not find anything funny in the half I managed to read.
The only review with an Amazon Verified Purchase is the one star review. One of the reviewers is also an author who has had her books reviewed by the other reviewers! Amazon I am tired of being conned into book purchases. Culver's memoir is not just an autobiography.
Kiss and Tell: Scotty Bowers' Scandalous Sex Tales of Gay Hollywood
Yellow Days also gives a close to perfect description of life in LA. The bouncing back to his early years in the mountains above San Francisco really provides an interesting contrast of setting - however the boy remains the same lonely and wandering boy. Although grown up and living in a very different environment that seems to have enough character to drive most people slightly or not so slightly crazy, Culver constantly thirsts for something more. He ends up finding that that which brings him contentment actually has nothing to do with the city he loves, and loves to hate.
This is a wonderful coming of age story that will make you think and also provide an array of emotions about this unique city. Caution, you may be left wondering what Andrew Culver has that you don't that allows him to meet so many interesting people. Most autobiographies are written late in life. There's nothing in the definition that requires it. The writing is savvy and intelligent and there is a real talent present for seeing the bigger picture. I look forward to reading more by this author.
This is a funny book by a guy who fortunately is able to laugh at the ups and downs of going from a beloved whacky kid to a loved and loving but still whacky young man. He's really funny and the book is a kick. It's a great quick read for the beach or when you just want to curl up and lose yourself for a while. Already Andrew Culver has had more adventures than most people twice his age.
Yellow Days: Adventures in the Hollywood Underbelly
You can't believe what he's been through already, his crazy family, his demanding school, his unusual jobs. Too much fun to read about. Can't wait to hear more from this author. A great coming of age story, witty, entertaining, fast paced read. A very well written with story that kept me reading long into the night.
I highly recommend this book.
