food events - restaurant

Things that made me happy yesterday:

Winning an awesome giveaway (and hosting one too)…

Not so happy-making?

(Stupid, stupid, stupid.)

Well, at least I saved $$$ on my amazing dinner!

Red O recently launched their Happy Hour from 4-6pm Tuesday through Saturdays, and I was invited for a media tasting.

Nothing off the special drink menu for me, but I tried all the eats – and am happy to report they’re all terrific!

Street Food…

Not much for vegans, obviously, other than the guacamole.

I had some of everything…

…and two whole tacos…

…then gave up on the tortillas and stuck to chips:

Actually had to leave when these oysters came out – didn’t want to get another parking ticket…

…but I still downed one – plus my last couple bites – before bolting!

All in all, a happy day.

    I have a hard time patronizing his restaurant considering the comments he made about bringing authentic mexican food to L.A…. His food looks good, but on the same vein as Border Grill..
