I had organized everyone to meet at Jitlada Thai for my birthday meal, but we were told upon our arrival the wait would be upwards of an hour.
Nope. Sorry. Bun Boy doesn’t wait. Not even for the restroom. *Depends*
Luckily we were in Thai Town and a few blocks away was a joint that seemed acceptable (sole requirement = they could seat 11 people).
Thai Patio used to be Palms Thai, famous for their Thai Elvis.
And while Elvis was not in the building, we did have a lovely keyboard crooner who sang only the most depressing ballads known to man.
Tonight’s musical mood would reassure someone with suicidal tendacies that they were making the right decision.
Thankfully I was with most of my best friends, ordering an insane amount of food.
To the point where there wasn’t a blank spot on the table.
Or a moment where “Does anyone need more white rice?” or “Who needs egg rolls?” wasn’t uttered.
For each bite of food swallowed, the passing of one plate was required.
It was hilarious.
Also hilarious occured after the server removed a few plates which still contained a bit of food to which Captain kept repeating “They took all our food!!” Note: Our table remained SMOTHERED in remaining plates, adorned amply with food.
(BTW, the food was just ok)
Then, I was surprised with an AMAZING birthday gift.
They handed me an enormous gift certificate to Hatfield’s restaurant, which couldn’t have been more perfect. I was very hesitant to fork over the dough for that place and now I don’t have to.
I’m lucky to have been blessed with a large group of great friends. While the social calendar can be intense, I wouldn’t trade my ocean of memories for anything.
My friends have forged my unforgettable time in Los Angeles, because of them I will never be lonely or unloved.
