It's raining men

O.G. loves meat. So we went to her favorite, Lawry's, which is a Los Angeles institution...for meat. Prime rib to be exact. This is a carnivore's dream. The meat comes rolling by in a cart and is hand carved at your table. All the waitresses are dressed in old skool uniforms and toss the 'spinning' salad next to your table, like in the old days. People who are not from Los Angeles, will probably know Lawry's best from their line of seasoned salts.

Since it is the holidays, the place is decked out with all the college football flags, because it is tradition for the two competing teams who play in the Rose Bowl, to go to Lawry's and eat before the big game, rightly named...The Beef Bowl. We had our own Beef Bowl, as I watched O.G. pound down a big ol' slab of rare prime rib, in no time. Nasty. The best part of Lawry's, and a big hit with the kids, is the free appetizers that are laid out in the waiting area. Saucy meatballs and freshly made potato chips. Mmm, just the thing to get your started before you giant meal of meat and potatoes. Which leads us to...

Gift Ideas for Guys:

1. Lawry's VIP Club - Lawry's Prime Rib of Beverly Hills $25
This thing pays for itself. You earn points when you eat there and earn $25 gift certificates. You get a $25 one right off the bat, so in essence, the 'membership' is free. The best part? Personalized seasoned salt. That's right. It doesn't get any more PIMP than that.

2. Film Fest snacks - Dean & Deluca $35
Movies and snacks, one goes in hand with the other. Dean and Deluca offers this perfectly salty/sweet assortment of treats to go along with whatever your viewing pleasure. Even if it's holiday porn.

3. Boba Fett USB
If there is awesomer packaging for a usb someone tell me. Sure the Leia one's cute, but Boba Fett is hardcore, baby. However the Han looks eerily like that blowup captain from Airplane!, does anyone else see that??

4. The Wire & Deadwood first seasons - amazon $40
Seriously, there isn't a man alive who doesn't love these shows. Is it the violence? The cursing? Who knows. I did like watching Deadwood, even though I covered my eyes at the gore, but I worked my way through it just to see cutie Timothy Olyphant. My favorite sportscaster, ever.

5. Charging station - Bed Bath & Beyond $19.99
This isn't just for guys, I, uh...bought it for myself. Hey I have two phones and two cameras and Ipod, sue me. I have seen these everywhere, and they are asking for an insane amount of money, $75 and up. Screw that. I bought mine at Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99 PLUS 20% off. Take that suckas.

6. Personalized Team Jersey - East Bay $45
Now you too can pretend to be a team player. East Bay is a great company, I made jerseys for the kids and they are insanely cute. I'm sure the grown sports fan in your life would like them just the same.

Jenn's Guys pick:

Sampler pack of pistachios - Santa Barbara Pistachios $20
I love nuts. And I don't mean these kind. These pistachios are the most flavorful that I've come across. They have plain too, but why you gotta be like that? Onion-Garlic is where it's at, baby. I buy these everytime I go to the Farmer's Market, but you can get them online too.

There's the guys. Tomorrow, Gift Ideas for Women.
