Buffyfest in Los "Angelus" with a guest appearance by Brian Lynch

LA from the Griffith Observatory, where they filmed the Angel episode "Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been?"

As you may or may not know, I've been in LA for the past week visiting Michelle. Yesterday, Bitsy flew in to meet us and Buffyfest was together again..."Gee, it's good to be together again!"(Really couldn't help that "Muppets Take Manhattan" moment right there.) After catching up, we decided in honor of Angel's 10th anniversary to have a full on Angel themed day. We started by checking out Angel's Mansion on Crawford Street, aka the Ennis House. Then we moved on to Angelus Ave. (Angel only lives over there when he's gone evil.) Next, we went to the Hyperion Hotel for a little visit in the courtyard. I'd been there before but never inside. It's so beautiful and felt rich with Whedonverse history on this momentous day. Finally, we caught up with Angel writer extraordinaire Brian Lynch for dinner in Santa Monica. We talked about LA, favorite Angel episodes (his is Waiting in the Wings,) food allergies, and a lot more. Overall it was a fabulous day and a great way to pay homage to one of our favorite shows. Check out the photos below.

ps, we did think about stalking David Boreanaz ONLY because we felt obligated to do so, but between the police and his swine flu, we decided against it.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: I'm just on the wrong damn side of the planet.

Yay on you for baskin' in the Angel(us) love.
