The Madison, final Zagat meal #3 is situated in a splendid old bank building in downtown Long Beach across the street from L’Opera, another Zagat restaurant itself housed in a beautiful room which is The Madison’s sibling restaurant.
Driving down from Santa Monica, The Monster watches the Goodyear Blimp unsteadily rise into the air above the 405 freeway which is at a standstill (shocking). And the unsettling thought goes through The Monster’s head that this blimp, which doesn’t appear to be finding its groove, could easily crash down and obliterate The Monster. In fact, this very idea seems a certainty and not only won’t the Zagat adventure be completed so close to the end but The Monster will of course be dead. Which you might think is worse is open for debate.
