Blast off!

I'll have a Moon Shot, pleaseI would like to live in The Encounter Restaurant and Bar at LAX. What an amazing restaurant and bar! It’s like the Jetsons opened a lounge. In fact, apparently the Jetsons cartoon was influenced by the building’s exterior. Ace Jackalope has an amazing photo journal and writeup.

I’ve seen it many times from the outside, while waiting for a ride, but I’ve never gone in. I’m tempted to visit L.A. just to see it in person.

The lone dark spot on this lovely venue is the hours: the kitchen closes at 9:30, the bar at 10. Such a crime.
