It’s funny cause everyone thinks the B stands for Bear but I started using BV even before I met my husband. B stands for my Korean name which was my legal name up until I got my citizenship a couple of years ago.
I also started using it because my narcissistic ass wanted everyone to BE VIOLET, hence Be V; bV.
I love these earrings because I never have to take them off. I usually don’t take my jewelry off when I sleep except with earrings I had to cause the back would poke into my skin. These do not.
I had been dying to check out Waldorf and finally we had the opportunity. Though the original crew BWD (Babes Who Dine) weren’t available, we made the best of it!
Happy Birthday Laura! We spent the evening drinking and eating and catching up on life. It’s really nice to get together for a celebration because we get so caught up with work and our personal life that it’s hard to find time to meet with different friends.
The hotel was beautiful. I did feel a bit out-of-place (like I usually do) in a new spot, but even more so here because Waldorf is so fancy. I mean, valet is $50.
Would I go back? For sure… I’d love to check out brunch.
We had to recreate Vegas for our friend GT so we rented out a space and threw him the best Vegas like birthday. Though it did not include any champagne.
We got a taco lady, full bar (no bartenders, but it worked out really well), ramen bar, photo booth, some decorations, DJ and dessert station.
I ordered a beverage dispenser that we filled with alcohol and it ended up being a better option than hiring staff. I got a photo printed cake from Ralphs which was the best tasting cake I’ve ever had. It was a marble cake with whipped frosting, bananas and strawberry filling. Everything turned out super well, GT got caked in the face and I didn’t get a photo with the birthday boy.
Usually that’s what happens when I’m having too much fun. I forget about taking photos and posting on social media.
I always wondered about Matsuhisa and the quality of the food for a very long time. So when Melissa wanted sushi and when Matsuhisa was picked, I had no qualms about it!
Our “Babes Who Dine” social group makes up of six of us. Each birthday, we celebrate over dinner and drinks, sometimes more, sometimes not. We all met through The Agency, some having a longer relationship than others.
Dinner was always great because the company was ace. However, the food was whatever. I was a bit disappointed in the overall experience in the cuisine area however, I did enjoy the authenticity of the establishment and intimacy of the venue.
I did notice a private room, sushi bar seating, probably omakase in the back which was inconspicuous that I’d like to experience. 🙂
Happiest birthday to you Melissa and until next year!
