Happy 4/20, friends!! 🙂
Last time I wrote, it was Thursday night and I was about to get ready for work. I did my hair and makeup, then, boyfriend and I headed out for some drinks together. I got to work around 11 PM and it stayed pretty slow until 2 AM! I’m lucky that I waited around instead of going home early. 😛
Yesterday, we went to the Fashion Show Mall to try Sugar Factory for dinner. The place is so hyped up but, we had never gotten around to trying it together. My sister and I did when she visited last spring but, she ordered a simple Jolly Rancher martini… what I’m SUPER interested in is their milkshakes!!! Most people (including big name celebs) visit to try their HUGE fish bowl sized drinks though.
When we asked for a table, the hostess was all like “did you guys have a reservation?” as if they were packed and super exclusive. We said “no” yet, were immediately seated.
We were tempted by the big Appetizer Sampler Platter photo on the first page so, we started with one to share.
It included Mac’n’Cheese Balls, Hot Wings, Onion Rings, and Chicken Tenders. Everything was pretty good except the balls… they didn’t really even taste like cheese to me– I took one bite and spit it out. I really think $30 was waaaay too overpriced for such simple, deep-fried snacks.
Boyfriend chose one of their monstrous burgers!! I can’t even remember what was in it and their online menu won’t load so I can’t check. 😦 I know bacon, bleu cheese, and onion strings were def included.
I had one big bite and thought it was extremely flavorful with perfectly cooked meat. I’m not the biggest fan of bleu cheese on burgers though. 😛
I had the NY Steak Sandwich served on an awesome French baguette. ❤ I could’ve sworn the menu said it would be served with an Onion Broth on the side but… I didn’t get any and when I asked, she said it wasn’t included? Maybe I was reading something else…
I could only finish half of my sandwich and we had quite a bit of the appetizers leftover, too. We asked our waitress for two boxes but, she only came back with one. Now, I’m not exaggerating when I say this; I had to ask her FIVE times to get me my second box. I don’t know where the fuck her mind was at. She even tried to ask if we “needed the change” when we paid our tab. If we answered “no” she was going to get OVER 20% in a tip?? Hell no. I told her to absolutely give us our change… so she comes back with all these big bills that I can’t even split to give her her 20% so we had to wait around AGAIN for her to get our change. Why did we still give her 20% in the end??? I have no stinkin’ clue. Why does it feel wrong not to even when THEY SUCK AT THEIR JOB?!
I had a pretty bad headache again because of the drinking but, after we finished eating we went to Starbucks for our espressos and it immediately went away when I took my first sip. I used to be able to just sleep off the hangover but… now I need coffee? Is this an “I’m getting old” moment?
When we got home, we just lounged around for awhile. Boyfriend was playing The Sims 4 on his XBOX. We got EA Access awhile ago and they have it to download for free (just without any expansions, stuff, or game packs). I was so jealous that I couldn’t open up my game and spend the whole night playing, lol.
Instead, I wrote up my Boxycharm post, checked my notifications, and then I got ready for work. We went to the bar for a drink beforehand and I got in around 11 PM again. There weren’t many customers at all and I just don’t understand why not! It’s springtime and there are so many tourists out and about. I can’t complain with the amount I came home with but, still. It’s really annoying how work isn’t as fast-paced as it used to be but, y’know what? Maybe it’s me.
Today, I woke up around 3 PM. Boyfriend was already gone and off to work. I had the other half of my Sugar Factory sandwich for dinner and watched the newest episodes of Star and The Village. Now, here we are, in the present time. 🙂
I’ll probably sing on the Smule app (LOL) until boyfriend texts me that he’s on his way home then, I’ll get ready for work. I am lucky to not be dealing with a headache today, but… I’m still thinking about having a drink tonight… what in the world is wrong with me?!
I just can’t wait for tomorrow. I’m calling it Sushi & Sims Sunday. 😀 Enjoy the rest of your weekend, you lovely lot!!
