Whatta Friday That Friday!!

When Rebecca Black said in her notorious song, FRIDAY: "Gotta get down on Friday" She sure as hell wasn't joking! :D

Anyway, the 5thirsty gang was at it AGAIN! Just noticed we get WILDER and WILDER every Friday! Remember our Fiamma night-out, that was tame compared to this! This time we didn't get contented with just one place - we went from Gerry's Grill in Insular Life to World Topps in Valero Street to Izumi at The Fort. Hooozzaaahhh!! :D

So I'll let the photos do the talking this time. The first set of photos are from our dinner at Gerry's Grill Insular Life. Since it was payday Friday, it took us almost an hour to get seated. We ordered Baked Scallops, Crispy Adobo Flakes, Inihaw na Pusit, Inihaw na Liempo and Pork Sisig. PLUS 2 buckets of San Mig Light with 2 free pulutans (Lumpiang Shanghai and Fish Fingers). Thanks BOSS (you know who you are!) :D

Then it was off to World Topps Valero. CB, Marvin's pretty girl, wanted to do something different. We didn't have any plans on singing our guts out, but it was just too good to pass. Spend Php500 and you get to sing for 1 hour. So on the table was 2 buckets of Red Horse beer, peanuts and fish crackers, and squid balls. Lahat UBOS! :) Playlist included: 214, Ang Huling El Bimbo, Pyramid (or should we say Triangle *wink wink), Glory of Love, Crazy for You (not the Madonna version but the SPONGECOLA version), and Alone. Can't remember everything!

Hahaha and we also met these 2 folks who sold us condo units afterwards (ayos din kayo salesman na salesman talaga ang peg hahaahahaha).

Since the night was still young no one wanted to go home yet. So we took a sneak peak at Il Ponticello, but it was ghost town that night and too chill for our liking so we left. We also checked out Rue Bourbon along Tordesillas but it was closed (booo!).

Since David already went ahead to Izumi, we decided to follow him there. And this time all we had was a BOTTLE OF JACK DANIELS! And for the first time, we weren't able to finish the bottle. I think we've had way too much alcohol intake that night! BUT IT FELT GOOD TO DANCE IT ALL AWAY!

Thank you so much to Elaine for letting me use her photos. Darn should remember to bring a camera every Friday! :)

P.S. Don't forget to follow my love, Elaine's blog too! It's called A Misselaineous Life!

Buffalo's Wings and Things

BUFFALO WINGS!! BUFFALO WINGS!! BUFFALO WINGS!! BUFFALO WINGS!! They're just so damn good especially if it has that spicy kick to it. If it's lava red, then you know you're in for one HOT dish!

And so for lunch last Friday, Lainey and I ate at Buffalo's Wings & Things at the Solaris One along dela Costa Street in Legaspi Village. Elaine has been raving about this, so it got me intrigued. And after having a buffalo wing meal early Friday morning after the Incubus concert, it was perfect to compare this wingding meal with what I had.

Buffalo's Wings & Things is just a really small place. I mean this picture captured the entire restaurant already. So if you want to eat your lunch here it's best to come really EARLY! Plus that day Elaine and I ate there, it was payday Friday, so getting seats were kind of a problem for those who came late. But since it was connected with another restaurant, Chubby's, diners could have the option to stay at Buffalo's or at Chubby's. I guess, same owner lang.

Elaine and I both ordered the FAN MEAL A. For Php199 your get 1/2 pound buffalo wings, NY Dirty Rice, and Iced Tea. It's a bit more expensive compared to Wing Kings, but you get more buffalo wings here than in Wing Kings. But at least both were really, really good. I got the NY's Finest Buffalo Wings which was a medium on the hotness scale. Well since I asked for medium, I was really expecting a bit of spice. But it didn't so I had to get hot sauce to make the wings spicier. And also, I got a couple of pieces from Elaine's Firehouse Classic (a 3 on the buffalo wing sauces) and it was really spicy. That was what I was looking for! Again it gave my sinuses a workout!

Oh and when eating spicy food, it sucks when your food goes down the wrong pipe. I choked on a piece, and started hacking like crazy. It was actually dyahe cos people started staring! So lesson learned, when eating really spicy food chew your food well and swallow slowly! Hahaha!

Here's a little bit of concern I had with this small restaurant, I talked to Elaine about this during the meal. It seemed like they had this sort of identity crisis. Refer to their menu below, they say they serve American food, yeah sure the buffalo wings. But then you get to the THINGS part of their menu, there's MEXICAN. The NY Dirty Rice tasted like salsa dip. So really, what are you guys? Identity crisis much? Not like it's affecting the entire resto, we're just saying! :)

And this poster pretty much sums up your eating experience at Buffalo Wings and Things: EATING WITH YOUR HANDS IS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER! I mean come on, you're eating buffalo wings! Wash your hands then eat with them! PERFECT!

P.S. I left my iPad in the restaurant that day. Thankfully, they kept it! Just wanted to thank our server Ate Yeth for keeping it in good hands while I was blissfully unaware of my stupid stunt, and also the management. Thanks guys! You literally saved my ASS!! :D

If Not Now, When World Tour 2011 + Buffalo Wings at Wing Kings

As media partners of Ovation Production, our channels here at Solar Entertainment aired non-stop the plugs for the Incubus concert. The big day was on July 28, 2011. We already perished the thought of getting tickets to this one-night only show, so we just stuck to listening to Incubus songs on our iTunes/iPods to temper our lusting over free tickets.

But around 2.30PM on the day of the concert itself, God answered our prayers and the best instant message I have ever received came through. WE HAD TICKETS!! YEAH MEN!!!!! But just like an insider's scoop, I can't name our source! :D What's fun is that we would have been happy with Upper Box A or B tickets, but since we're a lucky bunch, we got LOWER BOX tickets! HOOOZZZAAAHHHH!

Since it was Thursday, I first had to attend my class over at La Salle because I had a report that night. But right after my report, I asked my dear professor to let me go because we had an "EVENT". Luckily, he said yes so I ran to the LRT as fast as my two feet could carry me. Just a side note: Haven't ridden the LRT-MRT in a long time, it reminded me of our college days when we'd troop down to the Araneta Coliseum, that same way, to watch La Salle games! FUN! :)

I got to Araneta in the nick of time, the front act FRANCO, just finished playing their set and everyone was just waiting for Incubus to come out. Good thing I had enough time to breathe! Was seated with Lainey and her boyfriend Anton.

Here are photos from my Blackberry. They suck yes! But I just wanna use them just because I took them hahahaha proof that I was there talaga! :p

We were absolutely POOPED after that concert! But it was great to hear them sing their songs LIVE like I Miss You, Promises, Promises, Wish You Were Here, Drive, Pardon Me, and so many others. They're a great band! And I really wish they come back SOON! Thank you to our source whom I cannot name, without you, we wouldn't have been there! THANK YOU!!

Oh and our friends, David and Marvin got their production passes signed. But for David, he wasn't contented with having his pass signed, he even had his FOREARM SIGNED! Weird mo talaga David! But hey, I turned green with envy! Hahahaha

And even though we were tired, Josh, Leah, and I still managed to haul ourselves to The Fort Stopover to have a post-Incubus dinner at Wing Kings. Had this killer, super good, spicy buffalo wings meal for only Php95 and it came pa with a iced tea. Really good midnight snack! I have to say this was super good because I already have a strong tolerance for spicy stuff, but still this meal got my sinuses worked up! GOOD JOB WING KINGS!!
