The Spanking Spoon

Quick note: I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Burning Man so I thought I’d do a Q and A post. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in a comment on this post, or on the blog’s Facebook page, or by email (eatwatchrun@gmail.com)

Last night, Lisa, hubs and I went out to celebrate our friend Teri’s birthday. Let’s say it was her 29th birthday. Yeah. 29. First stop of the night was dinner at RanGetsu, a trendy Japanese restaurant in Winter Park.

First thing I noticed on the menu…

I’m pretty sure I consume more than 38 calories licking my lips, so I was sure the menu was missing a 2 in front of the 38. So, we looked up Tyku Liquor and turns out it is vodka that is half the calories of regular vodka. This may be a vodka game changer. I’ll have 15 mojitos, please.


For an appetizer, Lisa and I shared some Spiced Edamame, which was really good.

And for dinner, I had the Shrimp BLT Roll and the Kobe Roll. I didn’t like either of them.

Hubs had the Kobe Roll as well and the Eel Volcano Roll. He didn’t like either of them.

We were really disappointed with the place, especially since it wasn’t cheap. We were even more disappointed that we didn’t get the Teriyaki Mahi-Mahi that Lisa ordered, because it was so much better than what we got. So we picked off her plate.

Our next stop was The Abbey, a bar downtown.

When we got there, a wedding party had just ended so we had the place to ourselves for a little while.

The birthday girl.

Nicely photo-bombed, Mike.

The birthday girl’s main man, Greg. Do you think he looks like William Hurt?

We should find out if there’s casting for William Hurt’s brother in a new movie. Don’t forget the little people if this blog post leads to your first million, Greg.

Teri brought out her own spanking paddle (which is totally normal), a Kool-Aid mixing spoon.

The spoon got around.

We had a lot of fun hanging out until last call. The Abbey is a really chill place and they had a really great singer playing acoustic covers.

Earlier in the day, hubs and I went to see Contagion. It was really disappointing (wait for video!), but now I can thank that movie for making me nice and paranoid. I noticed this on the counter as I was paying the bill.

Screw community peanuts. I didn’t even add that word to the picture. It was already there.

Now, I’m going to go bathe in anti-bacterial gel and get ready for the True Blood season finale.
