In good Valentine's day fashion, we went on yet another double date this weekend with my fabulous Wedding Coordinator turned friend, Nancy and her husband, Eddie, who could possibly be one of the nicest guys in town.
I have a stalker confession to make. Before food blogs, I used to follow Wedding photographer blogs. This was even before I got engaged.... that's Weirdo strike #1. I saw Nancy and Eddie's wedding which had me swooning. After I got engaged, I went back to their pictures
She did, and lucky for me she was just starting her Wedding Planning business, SoHappiTogether. I jumped at the chance to meet her and we instantly clicked. She's just as sweet as she looks in her pictures. Throughout my wedding planning, we became friends and now, even after the wedding, we keep in touch. Is it weird that my heart would break if we never hung out again....yeah that's Weirdo strike #3.
And Bonus! Her hubby Eddie is a wedding photography with his own bizz...UP Imagery whose blog I stalk regularly. His eye for photography is legit.
We met up in Rowland Heights at a lovely place called...
The Boiling Crab
If you like crabs and everything seafood related, this is the place for you.
Anyone else know about the Crab trap door?
If you like fun places where you can write on the walls, this is the place for you.
If you don't like to get down and dirty and come out looking like you just delivered a baby...this is NOT the place for you.
Their napkin consumption here must be the biggest chunk of their budget. I'm sorry treehuggers...this place would make you cry.
The Menu is pretty simple. Pick a sea creature, pick a flavor, pick your hotness level.
(GRRR... I tried rotating this picture...obviously I couldn't do it.)
You can also add sausages, corn, and potatoes....yes please!
Then they throw it all in a bag and leave you to fend for yourself.
Cut your nails, take off your rings, and pray....it's game time.
Nancy and I shared a bag with shrimp, corn, and sausage. We didn't want spice like the guys did. She's so cute trying to stay all clean!
Now imagine me on the other side of her, mouth smeared with sauce, fingers all a mess, and a fatty smile on my face....Like a fat kid who just devoured a whole chocolate cake. No lie.
I would've taken a picture...but then my camera would be...well you know...dirty. I was trying to hold out on the napkin consumption.
So much fun!
After we tore this place up.... we went to the most Magical place I've ever been to.
I think this place was made specifically for me...no seriously, I think this place was designed with me in mind. The Lord sent this place to make me smile...and Father...it worked.
The decor is an Asian style classroom...
Desks included...and some even have junk in it...just like a real school desk.
