Golden State and Baby Blues BBQ

As I gear up for my trip to France, I'm working overtime to cover a bunch of new restaurants cropping up in LA so my editor at has reviews to release while I'm away. On Friday night, a coterie of my young lady friends accompanied me to two new places called Golden State (on Fairfax) and the WeHo edition of Baby Blues BBQ (where I saw an old college friend!), and helped me evaluate the two very different restaurants. The reviews are still to come, but I wanted to share this photo of the condiment sauces at Baby Blues--the one on the left is called XXX "Porn" Sauce, and the one on the right is the hottest sauce this side of La Brea.

Meanwhile, below take a look at my little video outside Golden State where I explain why it's named so...
