Hey, lets get one thing straight, I love my sister, the older I get the deeper the connection…that said, making her crazy is one of my favorite things to do. Enjoy, love you Cheese 🙂 Muah!
This is part II of my Gogi review. Man did we have a good time at this place. Funny, I look at myself rockin’ out as a middle aged man and eh, oh well, Metallica is correct, time marches on.
Anyway, Dina and I had a blast, this is are really fun local place that you gotta check out if you are in the valley. They play great music and it was awesome to hear AC/DC as Malcolm is on a lot of our minds that loved his work. Anyway, they have a couple of really old machines, it has been a long time, I was a big Black Knight fan. Asteroids would get a few quarters from me if they had it but all the games are fun. Makes me want to get back into it. I realize why my buddy Pete has a bunch of these in his basement. I almost bought one online while I was there, until Dina talked a little sense into me. 2 Thumbs up ‘cuz that’s all I got!
ps. R.I.P. Malcolm Young, you were a cornerstone of AC/DC and that will live on forever. You rocked the shit out of us and we salute you!
The video says it all. Dina suggested we go to an AYCE KBBQ joint called Gogi. 4 miles from the crib, get within a block and the smell draws you in. Big place, and they need it, because it is good. Ask for 1/2 orders of everything because there is so much good stuff you want to try it all. I digress, we walk in and there are a few pinball machines in the *out of place* foyer. I ain’t complainin’ I calls it how I sees it. Anyway, Dina didn’t like her parking spot, I asked if I could get a beer after checking in and they pointed me to the bar in the back. Go to the back and there is a pinball bar. I am head over heals with the place. Resonable, great food, impossible to walk away hungry. GET HERE! Gogi 7128 Van Nuys Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91405 (818) 465-3050.
So in the heat of cooking (pun intended) I purposely used a button on my oven I thought would keep my settings locked, instead, it is designed to keep children safe and not allow them to use the oven. Insert childish Vic comment here! Anyway, I had seen a post on a friends facebook page about something called Spatchocking and saw briefly that you can cook a bird quickly. Well, it worked as you can see from the video. This bird was excellent and cooked in 80 minutes saving Thanksgiving. Thanks Mary and whoever thought up spatchcocking.
So I have all these pictures from the Bocalli Tomato Festival in Ojai and Sympathy for the Devil came on and then this happened.
So here you will see the completely composed Dina during a ride in the Hellcat. I was sorely disappointed by her complete apathy for the moment. Oh well, the day before was exciting but that will just have to live on in memory…
This blog is a reflection of me. Those of you who know me know, I can be as serious and sensitive as I am silly and obnoxious. We lost a matriarch of our family this week, Tia Mafalda. She lived a long and full life filled with family and children, and grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was warm, kind, loving and left a lasting impression on all who knew her. I stumbled across this article today and I found it timely and more importantly comforting. I hope you do too.
So since last week Dad Has been intrested in getting Corn beef , pastrami and matzo ball soup. We are at Brent’s In Northridge and the feast is coming to a screeching halt. We have quite a few leftovers so that’ll keep Dad busy for the next couple of days.
