Jan 20: Birthday Dinner #3 @ Goong | R Bar

Wiz Khalifa - Star of the Show

More pictures from Brian's set for dinner. It appears that our beloved LA Family House has lost a step or two. Chris and Kes recommended this spot a few blocks away. Slightly more expensive, but better setting, cuts of meat, sides, and overall experience.

Happy birthday to you too Trinh!

Onward to R Bar!

No creepy bang pictures please...

Let the birthday celebrations continue!

Jan 19: Birthday Dinner #2 @ Kagura | Sh*t Jomo Says

It's my birthday! Using some of Brian's pictures for this post. It was my actual day of birth, so I had dinner with the fams. Sushi last year. Sushi this year. (I'll take a free expensive dinner with purpose any chance I get!) At the recommendation of DKo and Mags, we checked out Kagura which is in the same lot at Slater's 50/50. The food was really good! Except for the 1 piece of sushi that had the skin on it still. That threw me back into childhood when I hated fish, and I almost threw up at the table. The foie gras sushi and kobe beef carpaccio were amazing. As was the panna cotta.

And some bonus pictures of some of the pictures my friends posted as their Facebook default pictures... Last year they each picked an embarrassing picture alone. This year, they added some speech bubbles. "Sh*t Jomo Says".... Assholes! Clever assholes at that.

I feel the love. Thanks guys.

Jan 18: Birthday Dinner #1 @ The Catch

Red Cafe - Fly Together (Remix) ft Trey Songz, Wale & J. Cole

Alright it's birthday week time. Too much food. Too much alcohol. Plenty of Facebook posts and embarrassing pictures. And lots of love from my friends and family. The bar has been set pretty high. I can't really imagine a better birthday. So thank you everyone for the love and birthday wishes!

Dinner #1. Gathered some of the locals and some not-so-locals at The Catch in Anaheim to try out the OMG Burger. Take this Goliath down in a solo mission and you get $500, your name immortalized on a plaque, and a triple bypass. Only 1 man has done it so far, but it's still fairly new. We barely put a dent on it with a full squad on hand. The burger itself was pretty good! But it got cold pretty quickly when we sat there for 10 minutes taking pictures and determining if we eat it classic style or classy.

You win this round OMG burger... Until next time.

Special shoutouts to Kes, Ligan, and Omar for coming down from LA. And Channy and Gaston!
