I got my period this morning so I get to have a few days off, yay! Boyfriend and I are watching Law & Order: SVU. We just got back from AYCE sushi at this place called Sakana. We had never been there before but it’s the sister restaurant of our favorite place Sushi Neko so the menu is the same and the interior was pretty similar too.
There were a lot of people there and like 3 different birthday celebrations. They turn the lights down and play this super loud music for birthdays, it startled me each time haha.
Let’s rewind to Saturday, boyfriend had work in the evening, I was going to go to work as well… so I ordered a poke bowl through Postmates. I never tried a poke bowl before and I wanted mixed greens but then I got a text that said they didn’t have any. I changed it to cabbage and cucumbers but they forgot the cucumbers and there was no sauce on it! I think it would’ve def been better if there were mixed greens and sauce on top of it… I also got a miso soup for my side. The tofu chunks tasted really weird (I usually love tofu).
When boyfriend came home it was late and I was hungry again. I also have an ugly pimple on my face that was making me insecure so I decided to just go out to eat/have a drink with boyfriend. We went to this bar called Starboard Tack.
They didn’t have that many food options on their menu but they did have a ton of different cocktails. I tried one that was super delicious… it had like cinnamon and grapefruit in it. I can’t remember the name though. Dang it.
Boyfriend just had a scotch on the rocks. For our appetizer, we shared empanadas stuffed with longaniza!! I had just learned about longaniza from Rossy super recently and I was surprised to see it on the menu! I was so excited to try it and so happy to see these empanadas were stuffed with this wonderful meat!! Super flavorful with so many different pops of spice. The pastry was also perfect.
Boyfriend ordered a Mongolian Beef hoagie with fries:
He said it was a bit too salty. I ordered a fried chicken sandwich:
It was yummm-o!! ❤ After that we went home and watched some TV together. We went to sleep kinda early because boyfriend had to work during the day on Sunday. He woke up around 9a and I woke up at the same time. All I did was read blogs on my phone and then, I started reading It Ain’t Me, Babe. Boyfriend got home around 4p and I wrote up my Recipe Reviews post while we smoked a blunt. We decided to try this “hot & new” ramen restaurant called Shinya Maru Ramen & Izakaya.
The place is right off The Strip.
Their “thick” noodles seemed pretty thin to me and I thought their ramen was just altogether disappointing. Boyfriend ordered the Miso with pork chashu and I had the Tonkatsu with chicken chashu.
We did really enjoy our chicken karaage appetizer though. The nuggets were so plump and juicy.
They had MACARON ICE CREAM SANDWICHES so of course, we ordered those for dessert. I got cappuccino and boyfriend got strawberry.
Too bad these were a bit disappointing as well. The cookies were hard as fuck. Way too frozen.
We came home after dinner and snuggled on the couch for TV time. I took a bubble bath before bed. It was so relaxing.
This morning I woke up at around noon. I had gotten an e-mail saying that the School of Rock Musical and On Your Feet Musical had put their tickets on sale. I didn’t wanna buy a ticket because I wanted to save money by buying a subscription (like I’ve talked about before). I called the box office to ask when the subscriptions would be available since on the website they weren’t yet and the kind man who answered the phone told me I could buy them through him at that very moment. Boyfriend had my debit card in his wallet so I had to call him and ask him to add a little money on there for me and to send me a picture of the card so I could purchase my subscription. He did all of the above for me but, when I called the box office again an old fucking cunt answered and told me the subscriptions weren’t available until next week. I was like “really? I just called and the man told me I could buy them through him right now.” She was like, “mmm, no…” and I was like “that’s really weird because he said I could!!” and I hung up on her. I called boyfriend again to complain and he ended up calling them for me. He got the guy when he called and was able to buy me the subscription!!!! I’m so excited. The tickets come in the mail in July. 😀 The first show is School of Rock in August. Also, we’re trying to go to the new Marilyn Monroe Musical that is opening up at the Paris Casino this month on the 23rd. I think I’m addicted to musicals now!!!!
After I got my confirmation e-mail, I was all relaxed but still kind of mad. I’m actually still wondering why the fuck she said I couldn’t purchase them today but the guy said I could and was *gasp* even able to process the transaction!?!
The entire time boyfriend was at work I was reading It Ain’t Me, Babe. I’m like 77% through now! I’m hoping to finish it tonight but it probably won’t happen until tomorrow while boyfriend’s at work again.
Hope you’ve all had a great start to your week. ❤
