Just Back: L.A. Tackled
I'm in Reign, Keyshawn Johnson's restaurant in Los Angeles. I always order the roasted California chicken with mashed potatoes. Sometimes when I'm in L.A. I stop by Magic Johnson's theater to catch a movie or go to Skybar at the Mondrian. I really like the W hotel, on Hilgard Avenue near Wilshire. It's very contemporary, very relaxing — more like a house than a hotel. I like the atmosphere at the pool; there are all these cabanas with candles and couches. I also love to go to the club to play dominoes or watch the women -- L.A. can hold its own women-wise. TRAVEL TOYS: No matter where I go, I have to have my Palm VII. I use it to check flights on Expedia. GUILTY PLEASURE: I collect hotel robes. I have them from more than 20 hotels -- the Trump Plaza, the Broadmoor, the Four Seasons in New York. I like the one from the W a lot. It drapes well and it has texture; it feels kinda silky but it's just cotton. If the W is reading this, I didn't mean to take your robe -- hope you didn't charge me.
