Loving Angelenic's Twitter: Blogger harrassed at Mother Road

The Downtown L.A. blog Angelenic has switched mostly to Twitter for now, since I think he needs to focus on actual work. But Rich has some good 140-character stuff: Blogger Sinosoul (TonyC) tried Mother Road, which I wrote about the other day (although I haven't been there myself) and was hassled for taking pictures and told he should have identified himself as a blogger first.
This restaurant needs more than an updated website -- it needs an attitude makeover!
I have rarely been told I can't take pictures -- only by Joan's on Third years ago, and more recently I saw Alain Giraud ask another photographer not to take pictures at Anisette -- but I'd say that in this business climate, a restaurant has nothing to gain and possibly a lot to lose by worrying about people taking photos instead of making good food, customer service and marketing.

I have yet to be asked to stop taking photos, but I have been asked the reasons for my shutterbug ways.

Once I explain, however, the service actually gets better!

Alain almost tackled me taking pics at Anisette the first week it opened. "Are you a blogger?" he asked. He watches that place like a hawk.
