LA Marathon Expo
Packet pickup at LA Marathon Expo. Nothing too surprising or unique here, but the new LA Loyal program for repeat runners got some attention, Air France did their usual booth (business class seat demo!), and the legacy stuff in the back corner didn't get nearly the attention it deserved. Clif Bar also had some new flavors out (Ginger Ale and Salted Watermelon shot bloks were surprisingly good), not bad!
Made it to Poppy + Rose for lunch afterwards. Somehow I'd forgotten how big they are on fried chicken, from the absurd fried chicken bloody mary (delicious fried chicken, forgettable otherwise) to a pretty solid breakfast/brunch/lunch. Hash brown brick was good at first but I think I prefer traditional hash browns, ditto for the pork sausage. Not a bad option, just wish parking wasn't such a pain!
