An old friend called, my MOH from my wedding 6 years ago.
We haven’t hung out as often lately but it’s always the same feeling when we see each other. Like we didn’t lose any time.
We decided to go to Happy Hour since I’ll be in LA this wednesday for an audition.
We went thru a list of places to go.
XIV, Drago Centro, Katsuya DTLA, STK, BOA and finally decided on Asia de Cuba!
My mouth was watering thinking about their lychee martini, but I realized I’m going to riding my bike there so I won’t be drinking at all! 🙁
We’ll see if I change my mind. Drink and Drive or Risk by Riding? lol
I can’t wait to eat the sliders and wagyu tatare!
