Ventured out to Beverly Hills…thirsty. And what better place to stop for a drink and to watch the Heat lose. (Fingers crossed). I’ll start off by saying how amazing it is to have an attentive server/ bartender
Wanted to watch the last period of the LA Kings Playoff game, and eat, drink, and blog. We multitask. Taco Tuesday!! $2 tacos (Asada, Pastor, y pollo). We went with one of each, to test em all out.
Well, we had 21 minutes left on out meter, so we made it quality time, At Sharks Cove, a few steps from our previous entry. The lunch crowd seems to be as sparse as the bartender’s personality. Don’t pretend you want to have a conversation…or at least be able to fake it. I ordered a hoegarden (sp?) Him an LA water… Which was made correctly (after some research on their part). My beer was poured
Hennessey’s in Manhattan Beach Would you really expect us to start a week any other way? Hope you all had a fantastic long weekend. 10:30am : Blue Moon and Vodka w/Fresh Lemonade in our hands. The sun shining on our faces, our speedy little thumbs working our phones, making us look either too important or too pretentious. From the menu, where burgers are buy one get one free on Tuesdays, we opted for the Prime
Oh Bruce. I don’t usually use this blog for controversial topics, nor do I want to point fingers at the local establishments. But sometimes, like when it’s felt first hand, I have to put my word out there. Whether heard by 1 or 21 or 2001, I’ve been asked to leave establishments before. Be it too drunk, too loud, too not listening to the much wiser bartender. I get it, there are rules, and I
You know those places you walk into and may not be all thaaaat hungry. Until you see the food. Then you want everything on the menu. Service is good. Friendly, smiling, servers. Customers appear content. Full and smiling. Ordered the burger patty and eggs, my mister ordered the spicy fried chicken sandwich. Prices are reasonable. The food is tasty and filling. Burger patty was cooked perfectly, the potatoes crisp and flavorful. The fried chicken sandwich
You drive by 5 times a week, mention it maybe once every month, trying to remember the last time you went. And it’s that one time you’re driving by and randomly get the urge and shout out..”Sizzzler”??? It’s familiar, it’s homey, it’s not too spicy or too bland. It brings back memories…and stories. Today it’s a salad bar lunch and cheese bread! (Remember the cheese bread)? Our first round included alittle spaghetti with meatballs, carnitas,
Happy hour, is always a minor treat. (Well, more major than minor) BJ’s today. Wings, a pitcher of hef, and an LA Water ( I think we need an la water-Rama contest…no one gets it quite right .. And this la water has a strong 9). Ashley, who within 10 short minutes has become our favorite waitress of the week. She’s smiling, attentive, and quickly changed my man’s poking stool, with another. Thanks Ashley! So
Live blogging this morning from a random stop for breakfast. And the first entry into our Pastrami-Rama. (It appears to be a dark horse, but who knows). Spires, on the corner of 223rd and Wilmington, has a small but seemingly regular crowd this morning. Our hostess Lucy sat us almost immediately, with just enough of a smile to make her seem friendly. I ordered the Pastrami Melt (pastrami-rama entry #1). My partner and the keeper
Well, Sunday brunch is always fun. Especially a brunch with bottomless mimosas. I’ll start with the location….Redondo Beach Pier. We asked for a window booth and they sat us with a smile.
