It might be a lot like yours (or not at all)

dinner, a movie, queens, and vip valet

In How to be a Princess, me! me! me!, Restaurants You Should Try on July 3, 2007 at 11:40 am

the plan was dinner and a movie at The Grove….

this is where i divuldge two things you need to do:

1) go see Ratatouille!!! it’s SOOOOO GOOOOODDDDD!!!! and i’m not just saying that because i want to be a “lil chef”…but it’s a fast-moving, heart-warming, laughter-inciting, dream-inspiring film. every show has been sold out. the audience was mostly adults and kids laughing hysterically at some parts (so cute). Pixar KILLED IT…the texture and movement of various elements were sick.

2) go to a conveyer belt sushi bar restaurant!!!! my new favorite is Kado at the Grove! delicious sushi comes prancing down the conveyer belt, you eye it up, and snatch up what you want. they price by plate. 7days a week from 11-4 is $20 all you can eat there! MUST go back for this. the sake and beer prices are reasonable also. the pic below shows the scene you can expect at a converyer sushi restaurant, but this isn’t Kado.

my highlights:

<>1) after taking our sweet time drinking shot after shot of sake, we were a litttttttle late getting into the theater. the place was packed, there are “saved” seats everywhere. it was an each-man-for-himself seat-finding situation. and i was determined to come out on top. i was not going to be separated from my partner in crime, NF. up in the top section stadium seating…nothin. i was looking down on the bottom section, standing behind the topmost row of that section. and there i see about 6 seats and two people. i asked a nice lady if she had room, she said she was taking up two extra seats. then i see this guy a few down from her and ask him, he says he needs on seat. perfect! cuz there is room for either of them to scoot and give two together. i ask the guy a few down from the first guy if he is saving and he says no…but then his friend says she just got a text from a friend who scalped a ticket outside and is coming in, they think but aren’t sure. and i was asking the first guy, okay can you move down please. and he’s like well my friend is really picky, he needs to sit near the middle. and i’m like–okay so move the other way. and he’s like, well those other people just said they have a third person so there’s no room…like why is he coming to their defense…and i look at the other guy he’s talking about with the friend coming and he’s not even gonna fight me on it. and i look back at the first guy…and i’m like okay these are the only two seats left together, those guys don’t even care, so please move down. and he’s like scoffing and annoyed. and so i just walk around into the aisle and sit down, two seats. HA! i’m just happy the guy didn’t take it any further…it was about to be a bitch-fight. and queens are REALLY challenging in a bitch-fight. however, i had enuf sake’s in me…no doubt i woulda got my way.2). after the amazing dinner, and the amazing movie…we made our way to valet (that shyt was EXPENSIVE, wow…but i like their valet cuz the waiting area is a little living room in the parking structure and there is a red carpet laid out for me). so i approach the cashier before, and i notice…is that my car? sitting there waiting for me with the door open?cuz i hadn’t even paid or gave my ticket to anyone! i thought someone was about to steal it, so i was kinda freakin out waiting on the slow ass valet cashier to give me attention so i could ask. i started to calm down and realize that this is actually a good thing cuz now i don’t have to wait, and i felt like a celeb. i asked the valet cashier why it was waiting for me, and he said that David Spade was here and had the same car, so they brought it out on accident. so then i felt special and told him that i’m a celebrity too, and he said that yes i am.

good times!

  1. I was waiting to see what you had to say about ratatouille. so glad you enjoyed it!! I have a feeling we won’t see this until DVD, but we have a 60″ and theater sound, so that’s never a horrible sacrifice compared to seat problems (heh) and annoying people. honestly, I’m a bitch about movie theaters nowadays – I can’t stand fellow patrons most of the time.

    thank you for the tip about revolving sushi. there are two places I’ve heard good things about recently, one about a half mile (!) from my house. but I was wondering what the revolving dealy was about and if it was only “buffet quality.” so now I’m gonna try it for sure. I can never get enough sushi. πŸ™‚

  2. well. i mean…it is KINDA “buffet quality”. basically–the style of the rolls were buffet quality, but the quality of the fish was great. i think its worth a try πŸ™‚

    d0000000d 60″ and theater sound!!!!! movie night? πŸ˜› i wish you didn’t live so far away girl…

  3. me too. πŸ™‚
