I worked yesterday on our anniversary so I suggested we go out today to get out the apartment since it was such a nice day. We went out by Ann so Taylor can get his hair cut by Nikki. We met Nikki last time we went out there after eating dinner at Smashburger and she was really nice. What made her stick out was her Elmo tattoo which I gushed over as soon as I noticed it. I meant to take a photo of her but she was busy so I just stopped to say hello.
While Taylor was getting his haircut I was over by Plato’s Closet looking around for some good deals and I FOUND SOME YES I DID!! Not to mention, I already had a full stamp card which equates to 20% off entire purchase excluding items already on sale. There was a dress I saw the last time I was there but I wasn’t sure of it, then I see the dress again only it was half off and I knew it was meant to be! Thanks to my stamp card, the items I purchased were all under $6. I’ll be posting my purchases along with the ones from Goodwill and Broadacres after this post.
BRADDAH’S Island Style
For those of you who love Chipotle, you will turn your back on them once you’ve come to this place. Not only is the decor simple and tasteful with music matching the island vibe, but they also do military discounts and the people here are super chill. The set up is basically the same as Chipotle but the meat is BETTER, they ONLY have brown rice in which you can choose between plain or WITH SEAWEED, the mild salsa has MANGO IN IT, and they give you samples of all the meats so you have an idea of what flavors they have. Oh, did I mention they have a DRIVE-THRU??
We dined in and ended up chatting it up with a few of the employees there including the General Manager, Cooper. Before Braddah’s he was a professional photographer for clubs all around Vegas and he even shot rappers when they were in town, especially those associated with Rhymesayers (P.O.S, Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Dilated Peoples, Brother Ali, etc) and local up and coming artists. He gave us some recommendations on who else to look, especially Grieves. He also told us about some spots to check out to experience the rap/hip hop scene here in Vegas.
Headed across the street to Waffle’s Cafe!! This location is my favorite even though there’s one closer to where I live. Then we met up with some friends to watch Think Like a Man 2, it was ok. I really like Kevin Hart and the rest of the cast in the movie but I felt like it was thrown together and random at some points. Not to mention Kevin Hart yelling and spazzing out like a Chihuahua is getting old. After the movies we went across the street to Sonic and engaged in some entertaining conversations about couples, anal, and girlfriends wearing inappropriate clothing.
It was a good weekend.
