You’re hardly gonna believe how bad our luck is when I tell you this.
On Friday, after I published my Journal Entry, I texted boyfriend and asked him if everything was alright because it was later than usual and he hadn’t told me he was on his way home yet. Welp, he couldn’t freakin’ get our car started and it wasn’t because of a dead battery. We have no clue what the heck is wrong with it because everything seems absolutely fine. It’s not even at home, either. It’s at boyfriend’s work. We have no idea what to do or where to start.
That night, after trying everything to fix the car, he ended up just calling an Uber to drive him home. I was way too depressed to call one to bring me to work even though I definitely should have went since we’ll probably need to spend a fortune to get our car towed and fixed.
I finished watching Jennifer 8 and 3/4 of Julie & Julia before we went to bed a little past 2 AM. Boyfriend had an early shift yesterday. He had to call an Uber to bring him there and he tried a couple other things to fix the car before he started but, still nothing.
When he got off, he tried a few other tricks I found online that I thought might work but, nope. He wasted two hours for no reason. He ended up getting an Uber to bring him home again.
When he arrived, he quickly rolled a blunt and we smoked it on our walk to Starbucks. It was such a nice and peaceful stroll, I didn’t even mind not having a car at the time.
After getting our espressos, we went to the ATM, and decided to eat at Lindo Michoacan, a Mexican restaurant we passed on the way home.
We had been one time before but, couldn’t remember anything we ordered and/or if we liked the food!
It was (and always is) PACKED with people. We were surprised that there was no wait for us to get seated.
Other than the bean dip and salsa with chips, we also got a noodle soup, complimentary, to start. 🙂 I loved it all!
For my main, I chose the Carne Asada Mexican Sandwich. The lettuce was a bit much but after taking a glob of it off, it was much better.
Boyfriend got the Chicken & Steak Fajitas. It came with flour tortillas on the side but they arrived after I took the photos– which obviously weren’t turning out that great in the lighting anyways, lol. I loved the rice but, to me, the meat needed more seasoning. Boyfriend disagreed and thoroughly enjoyed it, which is all that matters since it was his dish… not mine. 😛
When we finished eating, we walked back home and smoked a blunt. I watched a tiny bit of Love Island Season 05. I am SO excited to see it’s on Hulu now!!! I wish I could have watched more but, I only got to meet the first three gals in the Villa before we finished the blunt and I needed to get ready for work.
I had one shot of Patron in the freezer so I took it with a little pineapple juice before I called my Uber. He was annoying, asking when he could see me at my job, and drove terribly but, at least, safely got me to work.
It was a really nice night for me after I got off stage and this awesome client grabbed me. 😀 I didn’t drink anymore until I was done working and about to go home. Then, I accepted two and made a little more money before checking out. My Uber driver that brought me home was pretty cool but kept calling me “baby”… ugh.
Today, we didn’t wake up until 04:30 PM. We were exhausted from all the stress and walking in the heat. We needed a good and big dinner so I scoped the Restaurant Week website for a place to try.
Last year, I went to a ton of different ones so I’m not interested in that many this year. PLUS, we’re out of a car so I can’t be doing much. I was grateful and excited to be able to go to Elephant Bar today though.
I took a shower then, we smoked a blunt, and walked to the Smoke Shop to get wraps for later. We called an Uber to pick us up from there and he was the slowest driver, ever. We were relieved to finally make it to the restaurant around 6:30 PM.
I can’t believe we had never been here before. Yelp has never suggested them to us so I’m glad that they participated in Restaurant Week for us to discover. 🙂
I was having trouble getting photos of the interior but, ^ here’s a taste LOL. It was romantic-casual.
I mistakenly peeked at their menu, just to see what else they had to offer apart from the three-course meal options. I spied Pan Seared Ahi Tuna and couldn’t get it out of my mind so of course, I had to add it to our order.
It was really tasty and totally worth it. I loved the crust and the arugula salad on the side was perfectly bitter with just the right kind of sour dressing and crunchy wonton strips.
Boyfriend’s first course was the Parmesan Crusted Green Beans with a Thai Aioli sauce. They were so crisp and fun to eat but, the breading definitely could have used some more seasoning.
My first course was the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. The chicken mix was lovely but both of the sauces were a bit sweet. The peanut one needed to be much more peanut buttery and I don’t even know what the other one was– it was green, sticky, and tasted like melted sugar.
The Top Sirloin with Coconut Shrimp, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Spiced Butter, and Grilled Veg was boyfriend’s main. I would’ve needed some A1 if it was mine (I always do), but he says that drowns out the flavor of the meat…
I had the Jambalaya with brown rice and it came with the most tempting garlic bread. It was a bit tomatoey with a prominent hint of spice. The chicken was a little dry but, the shrimps, surprisingly, weren’t. I only ate half because I was full from the apps and I knew that I wanted to eat my dessert.
The beautiful Butter Cake. Mmm, mmm… I don’t even know how to explain the taste. Boyfriend said it reminded him of his grandma’s French Toast bake. It was warm, melt in your mouth, delicious. Along with the vanilla ice cream, it was THE ultimate bite. I was sad to leave about 1/4 of it because my stomach just couldn’t handle anymore– especially with the black coffee I also had.
Boyfriend’s cheesecake was a little disappointing. There was a weird lemon pudding on top and the cheese part just wasn’t the best. I also hated the artificial strawberry jam spread on the bottom but, that Oreo crust always wins my heart.
We called an Uber to pick us up and had him drop us off at Ross so we could make another stop at the ATM. I had to run in the bathroom before we could continue our journey though LOL, thank you, dairy. We also stopped at the dispensary then, finally, we made it home.
I started typing this pretty much right away, after I checked my notifications. Now, I need to run to the bathroom again and then, I’ll probably spend the rest of my night playing Sims 4 and/or watching Love Island. I’m gonna have to go to work tomorrow but, I’ll be writing a film reviews post before I do, probably. 🙂
Have a wonderful week, everybody. ❤
