Super Tuesday & DineLA

Hillary is ahead. I had nothing to do with it-- I'm not registered as a member of any party.

Where did I vote on Super Tuesday? My polling location was incredibly convenient:

Audi Green Room
1900 S. Figueroa St.

After work, I dropped off my absentee ballot, got my "I Voted" sticker, then went with two friends to check out LA Prime at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel. We listened to NPR along the way and griped about how long it would take for the ballots to be counted.

The trip to LA Prime was an instance of seriously living beyond my means that I will not be repeating any time soon. I was only enticed by dineLA week's lowered prices, not to mention the 35th-floor view that we would have while dining there. listend LA Prime as their best deal and my friends and I decided to spoil our brink-of-adulthood selves.

I had the lobster bisque, petit filet, truffle mashed potatoes (an extra $8), and a ridiculously large apple cobbler. The (free) bread was excellent, the steak was cooked perfectly, and at the end of the night I was sure that I would end up in some sort of gluttony hell for consuming as much food as I did.

Perhaps losing my "I Voted" sticker during the course of the night was a form of punishment.

Never again, I say. Until maybe the next dineLA week.

  1. You should splurge every once in a while to enjoy the finer things in life.

    Esp. love the 'spoil our brink-of-adulthood' coinage.


    Food has no sin. period.

  2. Thanks! :n)

    I enjoyed it, alright. That indulgence will sustain me for a long, long time.
