More food for fodder: Fall Colors Month. When we visited LA two weeks ago, we were taken to dinner at MiniBar Lounge, a trendy little hotspot outside Studio City. We looked for stars. Wine was served in tiny little tumblers. And the decor was far out. The two main walls were black with white discs mounted, creating a powerful graphic effect that made your eyes swim after a few drinks.
On the other walls were some very trippy paintings by Margaret Keane, who was a 70's art star with her "big eyes" paintings (but is a very long story with dramatic intrigue).
