Continuing the doorway theme from last Friday’s post, this doorway is attached to California Pizza Kitchen in Chino Hills, California. I had never experienced the food at California Pizza Kitchen until very recently, always fearful that a restaurant famous for BBQ chicken pizza could not get pizza right, after all, I always knew that pizza was not pizza if it did not have tomato sauce and pepperoni as at least two of its components. I was however pleasantly surprised last year when I enjoyed a pizza in the designer pizza genre featuring leaks courtesy of Wolfgang Puck. Based on this experience we decided to give California Pizza Kitchen a try recently. Judy opted for tradition with a pepperoni and sausage pizza, I chose the wild mushroom pie, it came with three kinds of fresh mushrooms (never, ever soil a pizza with canned mushrooms), fontina cheese and a hint of garlic, on a thin crust. That pizza was Heavenly, the crust was light but had a good chew on it, the mushrooms were luscious and complimented by the melted cheese and the garlic. We washed our pizzas down with a bottle of ice cold Riesling, and have added California Pizza Kitchen to our rotation.

This is the California Museum of Photography in Riverside, California. The museum that is operated by the University of California Riverside fronts on the Main Street pedestrian mall. I have not done any research in to the sculpture that stands in front of the museum, but what I see in it is a human eye looking through a camera view finder, or is it a bowling ball coming through a television screen?
