So tonight, I was totally planning on doing a review on this Mexican restaurant that I went to last week. But to be honest, it wasn’t that great and I was lacking the inspiration necessary to feign interest in the place. Therefore, on a whim, I chose to make my triumphant return to Mama Rita’s in Newbury Park.
For those of you who haven’t read the Kitchen Nightmares debacle, check it out now before you jump into my post tonight.
So I wanted to originally go back to Mama Rita’s with the crew that we took to the Kitchen Nightmares shoot. But conflicting schedules, plus the fact that Michelle had a baby in the interim (congrats, btw!), made it a luxury that I just couldn’t afford. I walked into the place at around 7:45pm and was greeted warmly by the owner’s mother. She offered me a table, but since I was all alone, I opted to saddle up to the bar. Continue reading
Mikey and I started this blog mostly because we were bored and unemployed. Now we’re neither. In the interim we’ve managed to eat some good food, some not so good food, and meet a ton of really cool people.
Thanks to one of our readers, Michelle of ThePeevery.com, we might even get our 15 minutes of fame. You see, Michelle is an avid yelper and is just generally pissed off about a lot of things (probably because she’s about to pop out a kid any day now). One of the things that really got her going was her experience at Mama Rita’s in Newbury Park and the producers of a certain Gordon Ramsey fronted show found her review and invited her to come to Mama Rita’s Grand Re-opening. She was gracious enough to invite Mikey and myself to the fun and it was all down hill from there. Continue reading
I’m gonna make this a short one because, well, because I can. I’ve actually been holding this review in waiting, not wanting to bombard you with omelettes everyday. Here’s some big news though. Mikey and I will be guests on Words Cause, a live internet radio show Saturdays at 8am. Since most of the degenerates that read this site will still be sleeping it off, I don’t expect many of you to call in, but if you want to listen live, call in or even listen to the show after it airs live, here is the link to Words Cause Radio. Seriously, listen to us. Continue reading
For those of you who are just joining us, I have been on an Odyssey of sorts in the past week. I have gone off in search of a decent vegetarian omelette. This may not seem like something worth pursuing, but I would beg to differ. At a minimum, it has at least proven to be an entertaining search, with hair in one omelette (don’t click the link Michelle) and what could best be described as an egg frisbee for omelette #2.
Now that you’re all caught up on my omelette adventures, I can safely move on to my latest attempt. Special thanks are due to Amy, one of our great readers and the author of Parenting With Duct Tape, for suggesting this latest restaurant. I think we found a winner. Continue reading
