My friends and I always wanted to try out the new Latin American restaurant that opened up in March. In March, right around the week it opened, we tried going but the wait time was around two hours. We waited a few months, hence June, and was able to get int. Something cool? This restaurant has the largest privately owned jellyfish tank IN THE WORLD. Zany, right?
We ate in the restaurant part and explored the upstairs after dinner. There's a tapas bar too, for those who just want appetizers. After we explored, we went to the place where the desserts were located (that's separate too). There was so many yummy desserts to pick from, so I chose the bubblegum gelato.
Trying this restaurant was one of the things on my '28 Before 28' list. Check.
Some of my friends and I had a girl's night at one of the local bars near our houses. It was pretty low key, and I will spare the stories of the night of what happened. A lot of it is... "you would have to be there" moments. We took a couple of dozen pictures throughout the night (and every night we hang out), so I'll only show a few. Personally, I don't feel comfortable posting tons and tons of pictures of my friends on my blog; maybe a few here and there. Every weekend I do something and take pictures, but I'm just not going to post them, you know what I mean? (I'll just leave them on facebook).
Between Monday and Thursday (June 11-13):
1. One of our news stations always posts a FB question around 4am to be answered on the news at sunrise (4:30am-7am. the question is usually answered between 5am to 5:30am). You answer the question via FB, and they will pick 2-3 comments to feature on the air. On Monday, my response was picked. They also said my name right, which is a win-win. There's another accomplishment marked off for the '28 Before 28'.
Here's the question: "Summer travel is finally upon us, and though we all love our smartphones and tablets... one type of vacation asks us to leave all that technology behind. Unplugged vacations allow travelers to disconnect from their devices, and really get away from it all. This morning we want to know if you could survive an unplugged vacation. Could you go a week without technology?"
2. I found the camera I bought my husband (then boyfriend) about three years ago. it is perfect to put in my purse and to take out on the weekends. my dslr is too bulky and professional that i would look ridiculous if i brought it to the bar, or even just to my friend's house. I mean, my iPhone 5 camera is good, but the other camera is so much better.
3. I did a mini-Goodwill haul. I didn't nearly look at anything. I was helping a friend out. If I had looked at everything, I would've have been tempted to buy probably at least $150+. It's a good thing I didn't (I only spent around $55). I'll detail the haul in tomorrow's post.
Friday (June 14):
1. I went out to eat with my mom, uncle, and aunt at Malones. I got the usual and ate all of it: 16 oz. ribeye, country green beans, and steak fries. No regrets.
2. My uncle had heart surgery earlier this week. We ordered the Apple Crisp for dessert and the waiter said it was on the house.
Saturday and Sunday (June 15-16):
1. I went to a cookout at friend's house. I went at 7pm and didn't get home until 5:30am the next morning. Around 2:30am, I drove one of my friends back home, and then stopped by Hardee's for breakfast. They didn't start serving it, until 4am. #firstworldproblems. I went back to my friend's house and stayed some, before getting back home at 5:30am.
2. Several of us went and watched "Superman Man of Steel."
This looks like it is going to be another eventful week. No sarcasm here. This summer is turning out to be the best ever!
