Not very typical for us, but we enjoyed ourselves.
We enjoyed it so much, we did almost the same thing Sunday! This time we skipped the movie, and brought Jack along for the fun.

It's a great place to people-watch, as the clientele includes affluent over-dressed power-wives, rich teenagers in hot cars, arrogant "industry" executives taking their weekend leisure with their badly spoiled kids, and the occasional B-list celebrity.
And their dogs.....it's very dog-friendly. All the restaurants have outdoor dining areas where well-behaved dogs are welcome. Jack received many compliments, and was given a little paper dish of water when we sat down for lunch.
There's also a rambling stream with statues, arched bridges and fountains, stocked predictably with koi and also, totally unpredictably, with turtles. Dozens and dozens of turtles. Pretty cool!
