A Ride Down Hollywood Boulevard



One of the joys of our annual visit to Hollywood is that Pat and I have no set schedule. We just "go with the flow."  The one set thing we do (at my insistence) was attending a taping of "The Price is Right."  Which, by the way, we will appear (in the audience) on the May 2nd and 3rd show on TV.  Check your TV listings. 

This post features one of our rides around Hollywood one evening. During a previous visit we walked down Hollywood Boulevard to Hollywood and Vine.  Walking past the famous In and Out Burger, which I have yet to sample. Next year for sure!

This year, we didn't get a chance to walk down to Hollywood and Vine and mingle with the touristas but we did ride down there.  If you look closely you can see the Walk of Fame.  

As a matter of fact, we missed out a lot this year during our visit. For the second year in a row we didn't visit Oil Can Harry's gay bar.  We visited there the first year (remember when I fell on the disco ball glittering floor to "Ahhhs!"?)  I have yet to take any of the studio tours.  The Paramount studio is nearby where we stay.  Again, next year for sure.  But we did visit the new Ikea store in Burbank.

Well anyway folks, here are a couple of fun videos of our ride down the famous Hollywood Boulevard at night. Very interesting and always fun.  Next year we walk (or maybe skateboard).  Yeah, sure.

  1. Ron - I don't know if others would find our trips exciting - but they sure work for us.

    1. You're probably right Pat. These posts of mine about our trips probably bore to tears many of my blog readers but those trips sure do work for us!

  2. Ron, as you well know, I'm always interested (excited) to see your videos of Hollywood, because they evoke memories/nostalgia of when I lived there.
    I can't believe that Warner Chappell blocked your video due to "copyright" violations!!!!! What a rotten thing to happen!

    1. Jon,
      It's a shame you can't see the video of our nighttime ride. The music playing was on the car radio. Went perfectly with our ride.

  3. Ron,

    Ithe first video was short and basically staring at a traffic light. I looked forward to watching the longer, but as Pat noted in his comment, a Warner Chappell blocked it for some reason. Now I'm really curious. Is i the music playing? I have to look up this Warner Chapell to find out who or what he is, but I can't believe your little video would be some kind of threat to whomever's career.

  4. Ron,

    Oh, I see. Warner Chappell is a music publishing company. How dare you steal their intellectual property.
