Review: Spring Street Smokehouse Bar-B-Que

If you find yourself in the Downtown Los Angeles area looking for a place to eat, then I highly recommend you stop by the Spring Street Smokehouse Bar-B-Que. Do not let the exterior fool you, it is not a fancy or big restaurant. It is a cozy place with a relaxed place, which with its unique decoration you'll feel you're at your friends house eating and drinking from their garage. I mean that in the best way possible, many people go there to hangout with friends in casual attire, like jeans shirt. Here you can be loud and proud while drinking your fancy beer.  Even though the ambiance is casual, the service is top notch. Your waiter or waitress will come by to check on you every so often, and if you ask, they will recommend the best beer they have that day in rotation. 

Now, lets get into the meat of this post, the food! Just thinking about the burger I had (pictured below) makes my mouth water. Their barbecue is not over powering, and the meet is generously poured on the meat. They also have bottles of barbecue on your table each with a different level of spice. Along with the extra barbecue at the table, you also get a huge roll of napkins that of course come in handy when you're having anything with barbecue. I had a West Coast burger with pulled pork, onion rings and cheese and coleslaw... it was perfect. I ordered my burger with a side of fries that were the thick and very flavorful. I paired my burger with their beer called Duet IPA. If I'm being honest here, this beer was too bitter, however, my friend said he really liked it. So now you have two opinions to choose from. I think that if you're a beer lover, then you will appreciate their beers much more than me.

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.

1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.

2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 

3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy

4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
