the girls and i had less than zero interest in sportsball sunday last week - not even for the commercials or halftime, which we knew we could catch online or on youtube or something later on. and with dining outdoor in l.a. county having just reopened, we decided to head out to universal city and browse through citywalk. it had been a long time since we'd been there, and we figured it'd make a nice change from our usual downtown disney.
with pretty much no traffic on the way, we got there just before 2pm.
one of the things that's kept us from hitting citywalk on a regular basis is the cost of parking, but during these covid times it's free. i tried to find a spot in the section that's typically the pricier VIP lot, where we spotted one of the trams for the backlot tour:
but we were deterred by the "reserved" signs and headed on into the regular parking structure. we found a pretty good spot in no time, and followed the many signs that pointed us to the temperature check station.
and magically we found ourselves smack dab in the center of citywalk - and in front of bubba gump, where we'd decided to grab a table and have a late lunch.
knowing that we were going to be there for at least a couple of hours, the old lady and i decided that it was safe to order at least one cocktail. she went with the georgia peach iced tea, made with sweet tea infused vodka, gin, peach schnapps and cranberry juice while i ordered a tried-and-true lava flow.
