At the Art Gallery and Lunch in Chinatown with Nick

in-elevator-at-ago

I don’t want to be all Miss Braggedy Brag here, but I had the opportunity to see the David Bowie Exhibit at the Art Gallery on Ontario a second time last Thursday. My friend Meghan, who is a member at the gallery, thought this show was something that Nick would like to see too, so she arranged to take us during her lunch break from work. Since she had to get back to work she couldn’t stay long so we were on our own for much of it. This was the first time that he and I have ever been to the gallery together.

She was right and he did really like it, and I also enjoyed seeing it again and noticed so many things I had missed the first time. (The post about my first visit is here.)

↑ Here’s Nick wearing the headset that allows you to hear various parts of the show. Music, descriptions, interviews, and Bowie talking automatically come through as you enter different rooms or stand near the different parts, so you hear something that directly relates to what you’re looking at.

Since photos aren’t allowed in the exhibit, I took a few while we were walking around after, checking out some other parts of the gallery.

It is located at the edge of Chinatown so we decided to go for lunch in the area afterwards.

We went to a popular Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Hung and had some delicious noodles and spring rolls.
