Happy hour is a beautiful thing. Especially in this struggling economic climate. In other words, itâ€™s nice to get drunk for cheap.
My mother agrees, of course.
So, a few of us met at the lavish, Phantom of the Brothel- themed La Boheme cafÃ© last Tursday for some cheap eats and $5 drinks. These folks include Skinny Arbuckle, Mrs. T (those are pre-existing nicknames) Roy and Japanese Glasses.
I ordered the above, Barbeque Duck Quesadilla. Quite impressive, especially for $4 bucks!! It was a very large portion. I felt quite guilty eating the whole thing. But I managed, stabbing more than a few hands away with my fork.
We also ordered these slightly odd Japanese chicken fingers. The only issue was, they felt like actual old womanâ€™s fingers! The breading felt like actual soft, elderly skin. I was feeling very canabalistic!
After drinks, Roy snuck off for a wine tasting with Siegfried and the rest of us walked (several blocks! Iâ€™m still pissed! Since when does happy hour mean working out?) to the Comedy Store to see a Paul Lynde impersonator.
For those of you who do not know who that is, heâ€™s the extremely masculine uncle from Bewitched and a constant guest on Hollywood Squares. Although I was most likely the youngest person there, I do remember Paul Lynde. Although, I admit some jokes went over my head.
OH! Back to La Boheme. During happy hour, their shoestring French fries are $3 bucks! Theyâ€™re amazing and I believe the USDA considers them an addictive substance.
