I celebrated my actual birthday with my husband, but the partying was observed a few days later at Hotel Erwin‘s High in Venice with friends and shared with other Taureans. To fully enjoy ourselves without the temptation of drinking and driving, we booked a suite and was rather pleased with the design. I have no clue as to why I didn’t bother scoping out the scene online, but I’m glad I didn’t because it was fun being surprised. This place is perfect if you like the non-fussiness of an upscale boutique hotel but still crave a place that feels hip. It’s reasonably priced and seamlessly brings together a funky, retro, urban stile.
This place also provides great food at their on-premise restaurant, Hash. I had a hangover breakfast of corned beef hash and eggs and the meat was as tender as a girl with a weak stomach can hope for. Evan indulged in the ‘Venice Benedict’ which subbed a breaded tomato in lieu of english muffin, thick crispy bacon in lieu of ham, and a creamier, lighter hollandaise. The basil pesto pizza the night before was also pretty delicious. Check out some pictures not taken by me.
This is basically what our suite looked like
This photo was taken by me. (I’m trying, I’m trying)
Weight-shaped lamp base. A salute to the nearby Muscle Beach, I’m sure.
Our event took place at night and I thoroughly enjoyed the 360 degree view.
Bonus points for the provided blankets.
I’m sure I was beyond my limit in which case excuses the funny face.
