The point about the pie

That I completely forgot to mention in my post about arriving in LA, is that Westin is four circular towers attached to a central atrium; this means that rooms in the towers are like Trivial Pursuit segments; our room has a seven-sided irregular polygon recess in the ceiling of a room shaped like a slice of pie. The hotel also has its own brewery with an outdoor terrace, where we huddled around the patio headers saying 'oooh, bit of a nip in the weather' and drinking the Blonde witbeer (Simon could say he had a blonde in each hand); similarly, when we arrived at Venice Beach to discover something of a howling gale, I commented that "Skegness is so bracing".

Point of information; either our English friend who moved to San Francisco last year now has the drinking capacity of an American or the Tanqueray martinis here are unusually lethal. Having seen them poured, I believe it's the latter.
