Happy hour is a beautiful thing. Especially in this struggling economic climate. In other words, it’s nice to get drunk for cheap.
My mother agrees, of course.
So, a few of us met at the lavish, Phantom of the Brothel- themed La Boheme café last Tursday for some cheap eats and $5 drinks. These folks include Skinny Arbuckle, Mrs. T (those are pre-existing nicknames) Roy and Japanese Glasses.
I ordered the above, Barbeque Duck Quesadilla. Quite impressive, especially for $4 bucks!! It was a very large portion. I felt quite guilty eating the whole thing. But I managed, stabbing more than a few hands away with my fork.
We also ordered these slightly odd Japanese chicken fingers. The only issue was, they felt like actual old woman’s fingers! The breading felt like actual soft, elderly skin. I was feeling very canabalistic!
After drinks, Roy snuck off for a wine tasting with Siegfried and the rest of us walked (several blocks! I’m still pissed! Since when does happy hour mean working out?) to the Comedy Store to see a Paul Lynde impersonator.
For those of you who do not know who that is, he’s the extremely masculine uncle from Bewitched and a constant guest on Hollywood Squares. Although I was most likely the youngest person there, I do remember Paul Lynde. Although, I admit some jokes went over my head.
OH! Back to La Boheme. During happy hour, their shoestring French fries are $3 bucks! They’re amazing and I believe the USDA considers them an addictive substance.
