The usual excellent shabu shabu at King Shabu Shabu. The Angus ribeye choice is already pretty good, but we sprang for the prime, which is even better. Was crowded enough to be busy at lunch, but still no wait. Score!
Smog City Brewing after for a little bit of beer in the typical Torrance-style brewery-in-an-industrial-park venue. Sabre-Toothed Squirrel (amber ale), California Love (Imperial Red), Smoked Smaug Lager (amber lager), Weird (something very spiced...), black current saison (?), and another that was basically a sour. About half were pretty decent, the other half were forgettable. Suprisingly busy and hipster early on a Saturday afternoon.
Rest of the day was spent playing board games and making won tons. Nom nom nom. Of course, no one had a family recipe on hand so we winged it. Needs more seasoning the next time but otherwise came out pretty good!
Board games were the current favorites-- Bling Bling Gemstone, Exploding Kittens, and Robo Rally. So usual we forgot to take pictures! Definitely fun tho, with multiple virgins to Exploding Kittens and Robo Rally present!
