Okay, what is up with the parking at these malls in the Westside??? It’s as if Daedalus designed them. Finding parking seems like an adventure in and of itself and I’m not saying it’s a pleasant adventure. The Beverly Center is somewhat confusing but manageable. The Century City mall is damn confusing but having gone there enough times to satisfy my Panda Express cravings, I got used to it. It’s when I start parking in areas where I don’t usually park that I start to have trouble finding the exit. I think the worst of them all is the parking structure at Westside Pavilion. I have the hardest time finding ways to go to higher levels. So frustrating!
I always wonder why they couldn’t keep the structures simple; like those of the malls in Koreatown. And then I realized these Korean malls don’t accommodate the large crowds of these American malls. But then I thought about the parking structures at USC and how they accommodate way more than these malls do and they’re fairly simple too. What is it with the parking??
After finally making my way up to the roof level at Westside Pavilion, I parked and walked over to Hot Dog on a Stick. It’s a glorified, over-priced corn dog for which I have random cravings for. Turkey sausage on a stick dipped in that perfect corn batter and fried so it’s not too dry and not too moist. Freaking perfect. Have yourself some great lemonade with that and things can’t get any better than that. Okay, there probably are better things out there but I hope you get my point. I enjoy this stuff. $3 a corn dog is probably ridiculous when you can get it way cheaper at Wienerschnitzel but these are so much better. Or you can head on over to Montebello Town Center for the same corn dogs at $2.25.
And I’m sorry, not corn dog, but hot dog on a stick. Apparently, corn dogs imply that they’re frozen, so Hot Dog on a Stick doesn’t dare call them corn dogs. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the lemonade.
