Spent a weekend with friends, surrounded by love and lots of fun. Friday night, I joined some friends at the Caffe Brass Monkey at Koreatown to sing our hearts out so our late friend, Lisa, could hear us from heaven. I ended the night a little early in order to get some rest after working a long shift from work. The following day we all had a picnic and managed to gather a load of delicious food! Missy made these amazing red velvet cake covered in dark chocolate with raspberry filling… in the shape of hearts!
It was amazing to see everyone and be able to laugh together. I also realized that I haven’t been at a picnic for a very long time. We managed to have Church’s chicken, empanadas and Lee’s Sandwiches out on our grassy feast. I love my friends. Speaking of, I love this photo I took of Gizzy and Missy together. My friends are beautiful!
At night, I joined my boyfriend at Taix French restaurant in Los Angeles to celebrate his cousin, Dave and Dave’s girlfriend, Irene’s birthdays.
The food was pretty good. I had the veal with mashed potatoes, some side veggies and then the chocolate mousse for dessert. The service at the place was awesome and I love the old timey feeling of the place. Felt super Victorian and it was a fun to dress up and have a nice dinner. I recommend it for a nice meal with those special people in your life. Oh! I was totally lucky enough to have a trade certificate for the restaurant, courtesy of work. Free meal made the food even better! We went to Busby’s to get our clubbing on after dinner and I am still recovering from all the partying.
