First stop! South Coast Deli! Ummm I have something called work so I missed out on a Chinese Chicken Salad, or Tri-tip Sammie or Turkey Sandwich, but they were full when they arrived at my house.
NO PICTURES...:( I WASN'T THERE!
Once I finished up with work, we headed over to do some early evening wine tasting at Corks & Crowns. It is quite the treat to be a member because you and 3 of your friends get a free tasting or discounted upgraded tasting. For the special occasion, I decided to upgrade to the Pinot Trio, Heidi tried the Platinum, and Scott did the beer. Honestly, as long as you like beer, wine, or pizza you will be happy at C&C. Yes, I said pizza, they have Full of Life Flatbread Pizza make flatbread pizzas on Thursday nights! I must say, they smelled absolutely delicious, but we were saving room for dinner.
Next: Arigato! Last time Heidi and Scott were in town we went to Arigato for some sushi and well, too many drinks before and too much saki left the night a little fuzzy in our memories so we wanted to try it again, this time we were planning on remembering dinner.
Popcorn Shrimp: The best you will find! They are perfectly cooked, perfectly breaded, and perfectly sauced... Seriously, we ordered 4! Who does that... umm us and it was totally worth it!
Some of the other items we ordered were seared kobe beef, salmon with gorgonzola sauce, ahi carpaccio, jalapeno yellowtail, locals only. Ohhhh My God.... Soooooooo Gooooood!
And once again, we ended the night with some delicious cocktails at The Marquee! Check out my blog from last time we were there!
