Every weekday morning as soon as I step out of my hotel, I’m have to walk by this quite-stinky fish-based store. Everything in there is a dried out part of an ocean-dweller and hoo-boy, does it stink. And here we have two buildings on my walk to work: Blissful Building and Wrong Design. Not sure …
Finally went to French-American Bistro on Hollywood Rd. (NOT named after the well-known Hollywood.) We both got the Eggs Florentine – clearly the best choice. Don’t ask how much it was – It was expensive because someone decided she needed two mimosas. Food was as good as it looks. I actually get annoyed by people …
Here’s a video of what my commute home would be every day, but the trams are always so packed I just walk. It’s only 10 minutes; maybe less. Hope it’s not too boring. I’m trying to think of cool videos to make. This is Ian from work. The other person is Phil Collins. I took …
They’ve got a huge notebook full of lunch menus at work and every day a group of them pick out a place to order from.
Around 2pm my hunger surpassed my procrastination and I headed to Hollywood Road for a late breakfast. I couldn’t resist the sign outside The Press Room.
Since most of my hunger comes from just not wanting to leave my hotel room, I finally went out and got: Wellcomes are all over the place. I purposefully got a bunch of their chinese stuff just to see if I like any of it. At about $1 per item, it’s not a huge risk. …
The guy I bought the Big Bus Tour asked me meet him for lunch Monday and we went to Lamma Island.
Pros: Right across the street. $3. Coffee was pretty darn good. Totally edible. Cons: That’s not toast. That’s not sausage. Slightly gross. (But I’d eat it again.)
I met with two soon-to-be-coworkers last night for a beer and I thought one of ’em said there’d be food, but no one ordered anything. I don’t know if it was hunger, some kind of coffee withdrawal, the humid weather or what, but I had the worst headache for those 3 hours. Finally made it …
Ok, this sandwich was pretty darn good. Especially for being in a box in the fridge all night. Thankful that supervisor-guy had some cash and had this sandwich on him.
Looking forward to meeting Marc Lucas for dinner tonight. Joe’s Shanghai is just a 10-minute walk from Lea’s apartment.
This morning I switched it up and got a breakfast burrito from 88 Orchard. Their bacon is the best – thick, dark red and chewy. This was $8 and every bit as good as it looks.
This $8 breakfast sandwich was worth every penny. I took this just after the other half got into my belly.
This time tomorrow we’ll be checkin’ out of ol’ Oceanside Beach Resort. Actually, they shouldn’t call it a “resort”. More like Oceanside Basic Motel. No more scallops salad and tuna tartar from the Gig Shack on Main St.: No more Beach Berlin:
I love visiting Evelyn because she goes out and gets BREAKFAST TACOS from Wheatsville Co-op. After breakfast we finally occupied (well, a-third-occupied) unit #2081 with everything I own. Then came back home to this sight:
Being Evelyn’s substitute for Taco Day turned out to be delicious!
One of the top 2 reasons to stay at a bed and breakfast.
