Guess who’s in love?  Again.  Last night Lola and I went to this kick ass Baltimore restaurant named after a number. It was my first time there and I want to go back immediately if not sooner.  For those of you that are local, you may have heard of the restaurant.  The restaurant is right on the cusp of the ghetto on the NE corner of a park in Baltimore near Canton, and it’s totally worth risking life and limb to go there.

First, let me thank Lola for being 30 minutes late.  Had she arrived on time, I never would have had the chance to hang out at the bar and meet the charming and handsome bartenders (Cool Hand Luke and Other Bartender) and co owner (Dr. Slightly Evil).  This is a first for me: I’m officially in love with pretty much the entire staff (and menu) at this restaurant named after a number.

Other Bartender was kind enough to make me a fabulous rasberry mojito.  Fresh, delicious, and large (just like I like my men).  I had to control myself to not suck down the entire thing before Lola got there.  Once she did arrive, more drinks were ordered and consumed: the mango martini (made with fresh mango puree), and the three herb cocktail.  Let’s talk about the three herb cocktail for a second: holy crap it’s the most fantastic thing I’ve ever tasted (that’s what she said).  In fact, it was so awesome that I drank 3 of them.  It’s a fabulous drink made of crushed thai basil, mint, cilantro (sorry, Muffy), simple syrup, and flavored rum, topped with a splash of ginger beer.  Just thinking about it makes me want to immediately drive down there and beg for some.  (Coincidentally, I also enjoyed 6 glasses of water along with those drinks.  Smart move on my part because I didn’t have any cocktail flu when I woke up.)

We ended up eating at the bar instead of getting a table and asked for a few recommendations. We ordered the zucchini cakes (which were so awesome we ordered more), shrimp cakes, venison, potato soup, and mixed greens.  For dessert we had the chocolate pots de creme-freaking fantastic.  I had to keep myself from licking the little dish it came in. 

If you’re local, you should go immediately if not sooner-only don’t flirt with any of the wait staff or I will beat you senseless because I totally call dibs.  If you’re not local, it’s time to plan a trip. 

 

We All Make Wise Choices

Today, one of mine includes watching The Bride of Chucky.  It just happens to be on and sometimes cheesy lame ass movies are my thing.  It’s pretty bad, kids.  Promise me you won’t watch it.  Bad acting, bad dialogue, and bad special effects.  And let us not forget the romantic love scene between 2 dolls.  It’s not quite as bold as the one from Team America: World Police, but in a way it’s even funnier.  For example, when Chuck is telling Tiffany (his “girlfriend”) that he’s “starting to feel like Pinnochio.”  Really?  Someone wrote this?  And someone thougtht it would be a good idea to make a movie out of it?

Quite possibly one of my favorite things about this pile of crap is that Katherine Heigl is in it. 

I don’t particularly care for her, and it makes me happy to know that she made a bad decision way back when.  How come no one ever mentions that when they’re interviewing her?

Let me leave you with this wonderful quote: “Take it from me.  Plastic is no substitute for a nice hunk of wood.”
