The Bat Man

Date night yesterday at L.A. Live: The Hobbit movie* and pizza at Wolfgang Puck. Then, as we were walking back to the car, we noticed a father and his son dressed in Batman t-shirts.

“Oh, yeah,” I said to Tim. “There’s that free Batman exhibit on the roof of the parking lot. Can we check it out for a few minutes?” After all, how good could any exhibit be inside a tent on the roof of L.A. Live’s parking lot?

Well, it was fabulous: Batman artwork, costumes, props, and, of course, the various cars. We were in Bat-heaven. See for yourself.

*P.S. Despite a lukewarm review in the L.A. Times, we couldn’t stay away from seeing The Hobbit on opening day. Don’t believe everything you read—the movie is absolutely wonderful! From the first frame I felt like I was among old friends. If you loved The Lord of the Rings movies, you’ll love The Hobbit. I can’t wait to see it again.
