Weekend Round Up: Tour de Tandem

By |May 7th, 2013|reviews, weekend round up|

I was kind of hoping for a chill weekend, but that didn’t quite pan out! Instead it was full of shenanigans and FUN. Friday we celebrated Steph finishing her medical license testing with a big fiesta at Casa de Auffrey. There was tons of food, friends, and of course- a margaritator. We had a blast and stayed the night in Redondo Beach with Nick and Ali.

Saturday we participated in Le Tour De Strand. It’s an annual bike bar crawl from Santa Monica to Hermosa that UCLA Anderson puts on each year for students and alumni. Steve and I rented a tandem and had a blast bar hopping with all of our Anderson friends. Once in a while I may have forgotten to pedal ;)

I love enjoying the benefits of business school without having to go- thanks Steve! Three of my closest girls are all also dating Anderson alumni- which makes these events that much better. We ended the night with dinner at Hot’s Kitchen (which I’m obsessed with) and a nightcap. My sister picked us up at 9:45 for another sleepover- that’s the good thing about day drinking,we still got a ton of sleep! Southbay you are growing on me.

Sunday was Cinco de Drinko Mayo so we of course had to celebrate. Nick and Ali had been trying to get us to Baja Sharkeez for their breakfast special for months and we finally made it. You get a huge meal and an hour of bottomless mimosas for $4.50. Seriously. It’s gotta be the best deal in town. The food was yum and the company obviously awesome. Afterwards we walked down to the beach. They have this seriously cute tradition of putting their feet in the water at least once a week. I love that!

Steve and I capped off the day with an Iron Man 3 viewing. The movie was pretty good and the popcorn was really good.

Now to rest up for Ash’s bachelorette in MIAMI next weekend! So excited!!

love and candy,
