Aug 13-14, 2014 Benihanas and Greystone Mansion

Last night, we went to Benihanas.  I had the lobster and steak.  I keep forgetting to take a picture of my food.  Although, I remembered at the last minute. #birthdaymonth

Today, I took my mom for a walk at Greystone mansion owned by oil tycoon, Edward L. Doheny.  I’ve never been there so I thought we’d go and take a look.  It was a big mansion but I thought it was okay.  I guess, I’m a little jaded cause I’ve seen better ones on set but it is nice. I’m sure if we got to go inside it would’ve been even nicer but we could only walk the perimeter.

Little fact, Edward’s son Edward Ned Doheny and his wife resided at this address after his father passed but was later shot to death in his home rumored to have been over the teapot dome scandal his father was involved in.   Later, Ned’s wife sold the property and it was used in numerous films.  In 1965, the city of Beverly Hills heard it was going to be demolished and bought the mansion turning it into a city park in 1971, opening it to the public.  It is still used in movies, today.

No picture taking.  So shhh..

Telling my mom to hurry and take my picture cause I’m trying to stay on the down low.  She took like 10 minutes!  She kept snapping cause she didn’t know how to use my phone.
