Hey, all! If you pay attention to my blog’s schedule at all; I should tell you that I switched the dates of my upcoming Sub Box Makeup Looks post with my Things I’d Do If I Were Braver post because I’ve only done one look so far and I need more time with that one.

Yesterday, we went out to eat at this new restaurant that opened up in the Palace Station Casino called b.B.d.’s – Beers, Burgers, & Desserts. I was super intrigued by their vegan menu that I saw online and impressed with the interior and decor when I walked in.

Sadly, the service was just terrible, the food was overpriced, and they didn’t have ANYTHING on their menu that I actually wanted available. When I ordered, the server made this ugly face and said “oooh, we actually don’t have that right now” then, I’d choose something else and he was like *ugly face* “ah, we’re out of that right now, too.”

So everything that I wanted for my entree was “out of stock” and the appetizer we wanted was, too. I was more than angry at this point. I told boyfriend to just order but did not let the server leave as I looked through the menu AGAIN because I wasn’t going to have him come back and tell me they didn’t have what I wanted.

Originally, I wanted to try the Vegan Nachos– boyfriend even agreed to try them with me! But, like everything else on their menu, they weren’t available, so we went for the Korean Fries. It was a bowl of curly fries, drenched in some type of extra salty sauce, kimchi, bokchoy, egg, and beef.

Boyfriend’s burger was the best part but, for the price, it did not meet our expectations!! We saw the employees cutting up their own meat like at a real butcher shop so we understand the pricing but, it wasn’t seasoned well at all! The little shoe string fries were a huge bust, too– so bland and soggy.

There was this delicious sounding salad filled with seeds and other goodies that I wanted but as you can prob guess by now, that was something that they didn’t have “at the moment”….. I asked if they at least had the Champagne Vinaigrette that came with it and the server was like “yeah, yeah we just don’t have the seeds and other stuff yet.” So I ordered the plain and simple House Salad with a piece of Woodfire Grilled Chicken and the Champagne Vinaigrette on the side and this is what the fuck I got:

A piece of dry, frozen ass chicken on top of Romaine lettuce (it was supposed to be MIXED GREENS), some red onions, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers with a side of RED WINE VINAIGRETTE.ย  The server was like “oh, our chef is making the Champagne Vinaigrette right now, I’ll bring it out to you when it’s done but for now, I brought you the Red Wine.” He never actually did bring out that Champagne Vinaigrette and I never finished my salad. The chicken was horrendous… like the pre-cooked salad chicken you get in a bag at the grocery store is better than this shit.

Seriously, I was so unhappy with our experience. Boyfriend told the server about my chicken and he ended up taking the whole salad off our tab but… I’m still mad.

After dinner, we went to the dispensary and Starbucks. I was going to go to work but, I ended up just playing with some new makeup and really didn’t feel like going anymore. ๐Ÿ˜›

I baked some Almond Butter cookies instead:

They turned out so good!!!! (I’ll include the recipe in my next Recipe Reviews post!). I topped half of them with chocolate chunks from my Endangered Species Dark Chocolate and Salted Peanuts bar. I regretted not topping them all after my first bite.

For the rest of the night, I just ate randomly, smoked blunts sporadically, and watched Love Island. We went to bed around 4 AM and I woke up today at nearly 4 PM. Before boyfriend left for work, he noticed our tire was flat?? He had to put the spare on before he left but, I’m annoyed. I don’t get how it became flat out of nowhere.

I took a shower right when I woke up, shaved, moisturized, and then I took some photos of the Influenster box I just received and some beauty products I recently bought before I hopped onto WordPress.

I never went to the eye appointment I set up for myself yesterday. I ended up just ordering some new contacts with the same prescription because I’m too lazy to go get the exam done, especially when my current one is not yet expired.

I should probably make myself something to eat now.

    1. RIGHT? If everything’s going to be overpriced, they at least need to make sure the service, atmosphere, and food make up for it!!!
      The annoying thing about it is, I did ask him to list what wasn’t available on their menu and he only mentioned like one or two things, right? So the second time he came, I ordered items he NEVER MENTIONED and he said those weren’t available either. When we finally put in our order and ordered those nachos, it was because he NEVER said they weren’t available the other two times either!!!!

  1. Wow, how is that place even in business?! If they keep operating like that, they will be closed soon enough. They clearly don’t know how to run a restaurant. I wouldn’t return to a place if half of their menu items were unavailable either.

    1. They’ve just recently opened up but jeez, it wasn’t just yesterday that they did!! None of the employees knew what they were doing at all especially our server, he knew nothing about the menu. ๐Ÿ˜ก I hope they get their shit together very soon and maybe at least inform their guests what’s not available before we order!!!

  2. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ absolutely brilliant. There is nothing worse than a bad meal…!! I went out for dinner with my work colleagues the other night and was served floppy, wrinkled cucumbers that resembled an old mans testicles… why would you serve that to someone?? Clearly itโ€™s past itโ€™s date … stressful x

  3. Wow. Thanks so much about the review at Palace Station. They keep advertising on how they’ve changed how the casino looks and their restaurants are updated, but no, for a place like Las Vegas , and one of the Station Casinos, they gotta step up their game, even if they do cater mostly to locals. Definately let folks know what you experienced and I’ll betcha they’ll step it up.

    1. Yeah, their renovations are nice. The casino is bigger, more updated, and there are more restaurants but gosh, with service and food like that at the new restaurant?! I’d rather go to their old cafe lol.

  4. I am so inspire by how you layout your blog schedule! I feel like I could never stick to one because I work on it so unpredictably, but now that things are settling a bit maybe I could try to create one I canโ€™t wait to read both posts you mentioned!

    Oooooo a vegan menu- youโ€™ve got my attention!

    BUMMER. Service can destroy an experience as is, but the food not being available AND overpriced AND the food not being good?! I would have been sooo angry too at that salad- what is that?!?!? You can get a better one at McDonaldโ€™s haha. Remind me to never go there haha. You know how some people get road rage? I swear I get restaurant rage. Like eating out is my HIGHLIGHT of the week, it’s not cheap, and usually it’s the time for the hubs and I to connect.. so I get super testy when everything is off like that (oh and add the hanger to the equation haha). Sorry you had that experience!

    Thank goodness the cookies saved the day ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nothing sweets canโ€™t fix!

    Hope the next food spot yโ€™all hit up is better. Have a great weekend, love!

    1. Aw thanks, babe. ๐Ÿ™‚ So happy to have inspired you!! Some days I write a whole bunch of posts and schedule them and other days, I will write nothing at all. It’s pretty random for me, too, when I decide to write!

      Yeeeeah, I was excited to try their items on the vegan menu, too but none of it seemed to be available. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I totally agree that a McDonald’s salad looks much better than the one I got! & I feel you sooo much on the restaurant rage!!! That’s exactly how I feel!!! I am glad those cookies turned out well, I was definitely worried they wouldn’t lol. ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks, babe!!! โค Hope you have a great weekend, too!

  5. What the actual fuck, why are they even bothering with the menu is they donโ€™t have anything in stock, what kind of fucking restaurant is that? I mean seriously, the vegan menu sounds fab but they fucking ruined it with their โ€œwe donโ€™t have that right nowโ€. Itโ€™s a RESTAURANT! youโ€™re supposed to be fully stocked…..ok… anyway, sucks that it wasnโ€™t the best experience, I feel like thatโ€™s one of the reason Alex and I stick to the places we love because we know the service is good, the food is good and no funny tricks lol.
    I ended up drinking and smoking on Saturday because it was my neighbors bday. The weed we got was pretty potent. But again. Idk if I told you or not but we donโ€™t get the flowers. Alex gets a cartridge for this โ€œpensโ€ lol.
    And…..oh yeah those cookies look yummy!!

    1. I KNOW! They ruined everything… now we’ll probably never go back even when they do have everything in stock. I really wanted to try something from their vegan menu! ๐Ÿ˜ก

      Yeah, boyfriend’s the same way… he’s always wanting to go to places that we’ve been to before because it’s easier than having a bad experience!

      Oh I didn’t know that Alex only smoked cartridges! That’s really good so he’s not doing any harm to his lungs at all. I smoke blunts so I’m sure I’m smoking a bit of tobacco each time and the paper is probably harsh for me, too. I wish I could just smoke cartridges but, either they don’t get me high enough or they get me too high to the point I fall asleep right away lol!!

      1. I would have loved to see what kind of stuff is in their vegan menu too ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe you could find an actual vegan restaurant? do they have those? LOL I will have to try to find one here in Portland. It’d be a shame not to honestly lol.
        YES! Cartridges, thank you! The word escaped my mind when I needed it the most XD But yes, technically he still smokes the actual buds when he runs out BUT because we have a kiddo, sometimes he ends up smelling like smoke and well, the little one likes running up to him to hug him. Or attack him, why lie lol jk. But yes, funny that you mention it, him and I were just talking about the paper containing traces of tobacco etc. And how it truly is kind of bad for you. I honestly like the cartridges too because it doesn’t irritate my throat the way smoke does. ๐Ÿ™‚ But yeah that makes sense, I do remember hitting it a bit too much when I first tried it but I guess it’s one of those things that you just get used to over time? You could also try matching the THC content to the buds that you already get, but honestly I haven’t experimented with it to see if it’s the same or less. Me personally, whatever strain I smoke, the THC needs to kind of match the CBD as close as possible because too much THC makes me a little paranoid and anxious, so it’s nice to have the calming effects of the CBD to combat that ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Yeah, there are actually a few vegan restaurants but no way would my boyfriend ever go to one with me haha. My vegetarian aunts and sis are coming here (whoa tomorrow!) and if I do end up seeing them, I will be going to a vegan restaurant with them, I think!! I’ll be sure to take photos of the menu & food of course. ๐Ÿ˜€

          Yeah, I mean I’ve only quit smoking cigarettes earlier this year and I still do when I’m at work so I’m not too worried about the little traces of tobacco in my blunts but they do make blunt wraps now where the papers are made out of CBD & not pre-rolled with tobacco & contain no harmful chemicals/ingredients at all– they’re a bit harder to roll though.

          But to be honest, I’m addicted to the smoking part of it all. Smoking the pens doesn’t give my lungs that full feeling. It’s not as satisfying and the high is bit too clean for my liking? Like I know I’m high but, I like my brain to be more clouded, if that makes sense?

          I don’t really know how to pay attention to the percentages though the budtenders always talk about it lol, I just know that I like Indica only or Indica-dominant strains with a high THC level and I can’t smoke any type of Sativa strain because they make me so paranoid and anxious, too. ๐Ÿ˜›

            1. I will def share about it if I do meet up with them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure I really want to, though, if I’m being honest! Hahah what a coincidence my sis JUST texted me that they just landed.

              Oh okay okay, I wanted to tell you; I told my boyfriend what you said about matching the CBD % to the THC % to avoid panic & paranoia– he told me that’s impossible. The CBD is always way lower and sometimes even 0 %.
              Babe, don’t pay attention to all that. Just make sure you are not smoking Sativa strains or Sativa-Dominant Hybrids & you shouldn’t get anxiety, I promise. Always ask for Indica!! โค

              1. Lol that’s so hilarious! I get what you mean though, sometimes I don’t like being around my family either lol.

                It won’t be an exact match, I know that, but for me it has to have SOME* CBD … AND…. I can’t smoke too much lol. AND, I’m the opposite of you haha I can’t smoke indica, it HAS to be sativa. I prefer a brain high because it allows me to still be active, a body high gives me so much anxiety lol. Thanks doll!

                1. Ah, I probably should see them… they’re leaving Sunday morning but I just don’t want to. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It does make me feel better to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t always enjoy being around family…

                  Hmm that’s really weird… indicas are meant to be relaxing and calming but, hey I know everyone is different! I looked at our weed jars and the CBD level is always at like .06% or so and the THC is around 30%! IDK what that means really?? lol.

                  1. It’s okay if you don’t want to see them. Don’t feel bad about that lol. Sometimes it’s better to take sole time for yourself instead of forcing yourself to be around people.
                    I’ll have to go and check out the shop where I’m at. Because obviously, everyone wants the more potent ones. So the more people purchase those strains, the less theyll have ones with less potency if that makes any sense lol. Cause even too much THC can cause anxiety or paranoia for me lol.

                    1. Yeah, I decided not to even bother going to see them. If I don’t feel like it, then it would be a bad encounter anyways, I feel like? Oh well, they left today! Wheew!

                      Yeah that’s true! Too much THC of any strain can be bad for some people!

  6. That restaurant sounds like the worst experience!! My goodness, if they can’t keep most of their items stocked, maybe they shouldn’t be in business! Especially when it’s not like a holiday or anything. That’s so dumb!
