HAAPPY SAAINT PAATRICK’S DAAY!

HAAPPY SAAINT PAATRICK’S DAAY!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! MARCH 17th is always St. Patrick’s Day!

“Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

darby-king-brian-2

“Here’s to being single… Drinking doubles… And seeing triple!”

First, a very important message for all my Friends:
PLEASE 
DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”

“May the rocks in your field turn to gold.”

Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebration held on March 17, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (385–461), the patron saint of Ireland.

irish-flag

“May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rains fall soft upon your fields.”

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast holy day in the early 17th century and is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival!

“May the leprechauns be near you, 
To spread luck along your way. 
And may all the Irish angels, 
Smile upon your St. Patrick’s Day.”

shamrock-irish-dance-clipart-cliparthut-free-clipart-VyiX8l-clipart

“Here’s to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend. 
The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful.”

“To all the days here and after 
May they be filled with fond memories, happiness, love and laughter.”

Historically, religious restrictions (due to Lent) on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for Saint Patrick’s Day, which led the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

e235891a3c7f57444316d99078faab00

Holiday celebrations involve going to church, public parades & festivals, parties known as cèilidhs, consumption of alcohol, drinking green beer and/or Irish whiskey with friends, prominent displays and “the wearing of the green” and/or shamrocks (three and four leaf clovers).

“May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed, 
and may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.”

10427222_913586882001212_2071684294545506778_n

“May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.”

“Four blessings upon you… 
Older whiskey, Younger women, Faster horses, More money”

Fresh beer

“It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there’s no money!”

Saint Patrick’s Day has become an International Holiday with parades and celebrations around the world. They get drunk in Tokyo, Japan too!

“May your mornings bring joy
and your evenings bring peace…
May your troubles grow less
as your blessings increase!”

11080549_1099031426790089_7428653734973602409_o

We like Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

“I have known many and liked not a few,
I’ve loved only one and this toast’s to you.”

“Best while you have use of your breath 
There is no drinking after death!”

“May the winds of fortune sail you, May you sail a gentle sea. 
May it always be the other guy who says ‘this drink’s on me’.”

“A bird with one wing can’t fly.” (So have another drink!)

The Notre Dame Leprechaun is the official mascot of the Fighting Irish sports club at the University of Notre Dame since 1965. It was designed by artist Theodore W. Drake for $50 in 1964.

The Fighting Irish logo is a side view of The Leprechaun with his fists up, ready to fight. The live version is a student dressed in a cutaway green suit and Irish country hat. He carries a shillelagh (a wooden club), leads cheers, interacts with the crowd and supposedly brings magical powers and good luck to the team. (“RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!”)

“Who’s the WILDMAN now?”

“May the luck of the Irish 
Lead to the happiest heights 
And the highway you travel 
Be lined with green lights.”

17264141_1733190540040838_1024095991096004530_n

“May the Four Winds Blow Them Safely Home”

“Merry met, and merry part, 
I drink to thee with all my heart.”

March 2017!

“March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” – Thomas Fuller, 1732

March is the third month of the year.
The name comes from Mars, the Roman G-d of War.

Astrologically speaking, in March,
Leo (the Lion) is the rising zodiac sign and by April, it’s Aries (the Goat).

12801377_1326055424087687_3426608033148370077_n

The saying is simply an observation of the common seasonal pattern: March is the transition between winter and summer, usually starting with stormy weather and becoming mild later.

MARCH (verb or noun): walk in a military manner with a regular measured tread
synonyms: walk, hike, trek, tramp, slog, troop, stride, step, pace, tread, trudge, tromp, parade, file, process (see our previous Blog “The Company-of-Foote”)

Mario V. RIP

Rest in Peace Mario.
He danced at my wedding! He was the Life of the Party and so full of life. I love this pic! He wasn’t afraid to be “that guy” and he always had a good time and made sure the people around him did too. He loved to make people laugh! Always a joke, or a story, or a “Don Rickles” insult to make someone smile.
And Mario and Virginia were always there for their friends for as long as I’ve known them (35 years). My deepest condolences to the whole family.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Obituary of Mario Veneroso (with just a little editing)
Mario Louis Veneroso (1958 – 2017) of Simi Valley, beloved husband, father, brother, friend and mentor to so many, has gone on to eternal rest. Originally from Garden Grove, California, Mario was a skilled engineer, photographer, scuba diver and trail-blazer. He loved good scotch and to be in nature, especially Yosemite. He was generous with all he had (especially humor) and his advice was sought and valued by those who knew him. He has gone to join his mother and father, Mary and Mario, and his brother, Matthew. He is survived by his wife, Virginia, his children, Christina, Nicholas, and Teresa, and his siblings, Michele, Marc, and Martin. Funeral services are on Friday, March 10th. If you cannot join, please feel free to raise a glass in his honor.

Mario, Virginia, Steve, Al & Peter at KJ’s New Years Eve Party 2017

NOTE: We had a really good time at New Years Party and it was great to see everyone, having a “last chance” with an old friend (without knowing it) makes it seem bittersweet. And then he blocked me on facebook because of politics (he was a Trump supporter) which is “just like Mario”…….  two old friends in two weeks, tell them you love them now.

Leprecauns are Irish fairies usually seen as little red-bearded men, wearing green coats and hats, who enjoy practical jokes and mischief. They are solitary creatures who make and mend shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Don’t Be This Guy:

And don’t forget “March Madness”, that college basketball thing with the brackets, and betting and office pools, and it’s a DISTRACTION from really important things that matter!

Don’t get me started on college athletic programs and the money involved!
DON’T WATCH! DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT GENERATE MONEY FOR SCHOOLS AND COACHES AND NOT STUDENTS.
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT PUT ATHLETICS OVER EDUCATION OR VIOLATE THE RULES AND/OR ETHICS OF SPORTSMANSHIP!
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT CONCEAL AND/OR COVER-UP CRIMES BY COLLEGES, PLAYERS AND/OR COACHES!
(And that’s all I’m going to say about that, for now)

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017 HOUSE PARTY!

December 31st, 2016 – 10pm PST – Burbank, California

The Annual HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE HOUSE PARTY at KJ and Steve’s!

148489_178282618864979_4448465_n

Not This Year’s Invitation, but You Never Know…

It’s 2017!

15826264_1632835896742970_7777711812104137393_n

Top Hat and Champagne Poppers for New Year’s Eve!

The last third of 2016 really kicked our ass. We really weren’t feeling up to a big party this year and were really prepared to stay home with the dogs and ring in 2017 quietly. We were invited to a couple of parties and a couple of big events, but at the invitation of an old friend, we decided to venture out into the night and attend the Annual Happy New Year’s Eve Party at KJ and Steve’s in Burbank once again. This party has been happening every year since the 1980’s…

15823051_10154821401299194_8194249742113798406_n

35 YEARS+ of Friendships! Old Friends who are now really old old friends! Marriages, relationships, divorces, births, deaths, illnesses, good times and bad.
There’s a lot of history, stories and good memories associated with the house and all the fun times we’ve had at the many birthday and holiday parties held there over the years.

Happy New Year House Party Pic – Late 1990’s (with lots of children – not my pic)

The parties are not as rowdy as they used to be in the 80’s and 90’s, and all the children who used to run around the house are all grown up (some with children of their own), as are most of the adults now…

Tempus fugit! Time flies! In the old days this was a “destination” party and people would come from out-of-town and camp in the backyard! There were years when it was standing room only and other years when there wasn’t an invitation sent out and only a few people showed up. You never knew who might be in attendance from year to year, or who might stop by on their way to another party. And then some people stopped coming. A lot of the “regulars” from the past have moved away, found other parties, grown old or now only celebrate with us in spirit. And some of the younger party guests weren’t even born when the celebration first took place!

And so, with the coming of the New Year,
THE HAPPY NEW YEAR HOUSE PARTY CONTINUES!
Here are some Happy New Year 2017 House Party pics!

In the old days the party would continue until dawn and guests would literally be passed out on the floor. We last attended this party at the end of 2013 when everyone went home just after midnight and a family card game broke out in the living room. We always bring a nice bottle of champagne or fine wine as a gift for our hosts whenever we visit for New Years. In the past we’ve also brought a bottle of Stolichnaya vodka (size might vary from year to year and decade to decade) for our own consumption and to share, along with mixers, snacks and other refreshments. This year we just brought a big bottle of nice wine (a Malbec from Argentina) for our hosts and a single can of coke that we plugged with a single shot of Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum for old times sake.

The tradition of the circle of friends around the fire began when the firepit was just a hole with a gas pipe sticking out of it. In the old days when the gas was off we burnt wood in the red brick firepit (and often things that were not wood would be thrown in the fire). Now it’s a large cinderblock pit designed for a party with an adjustable gas flame, but the tradition continues. (Who threw the plastic champagne popper in there?)

The Old Red Brick Fire Pit

The house is designed for a party. There’s a large living room, the kitchen and the food table, the covered back patio and bar area, the firepit, the pool area and hot tub, the office and the bedrooms. In recent years, modular units (more rooms) have been added as additional party space. The house and backyard are always decorated with a lot of festive lighting and there’s always a real fire in the indoor fireplace.

Regardless of the weather conditions in December, it’s always been an indoor-outdoor event. Some years it’s been “California freezing” cold or there’s been rain, but the party goes on regardless and the celebration adjusts accordingly. And just like the Rose Parade, the weather has never prevented those in attendance from having a good time!

This year it was cold outside, but not freezing. And someone who won’t be named turned the gas for the firepit all the way up to “Viking Funeral” level so it was nice and warm around the outdoor fire. Everyone ate and drank and some of the boys smoked cigars.

Single Malt Scotch and Fine Cigars with Old Friends

Tradition also has everyone gathering in the living room and on the patio for the Midnight Countdown and “Stroke of Midnight”. Helium balloons filled with glitter and confetti are popped, people are kissed and everyone toasts the New Year at twelve o’clock. There’s also a large artist pad and box of colored pens, and anyone can sign or draw on the page for the current year. And the old pads and pages going back to the 1980’s are available for viewing (and reminiscing about the past).

15826068_1631391370220756_6615128472437563915_n

Balloons Filled with Glitter and Confetti…

There’s always too much food! It’s sort of a potluck, and some people bring food, but our gracious hosts always provide Dinner and Snacks for everyone! It’s also BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer or Alcohol) but there’s always a full bar too. In the old days, there used to be a row of “personal coolers” filled with people’s own preferred drinks and snacks.

On The Dinner Menu: Cheese Lasagna, “Navy Boy’s macaroni & cheese”, ham, green bean casserole, chips, more chips, nuts, cookies, carrot cake and more. An assortment of non-alcoholic beverages: coffee, tea, sodas, juices and bottle water are provided too.

Food, Drink and Other Pics from the House Party:

We ate some lasagna, reheated in the microwave, then enjoyed an adult beverage: a Coke&Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, and then a wee bit of McCallan Gold blended scotch, and then a really wee bit of Glenfidditch single malt scotch, and then later we ate some good munchies: Doritos nacho cheese chips & honey roasted cashews.

NOTE: We tried it and it was not the “Best Damn Root Beer”… sorry. It was “hard” root beer (with alcohol) and tasted like diet soda, so we only had a sip and then gave it away. DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE! We stopped drinking before midnight (and we really didn’t drink very much at all) and then waited until after 2am when the party was done before driving home (and there’s always room to crash at the house if you’ve had too much!).

The Road Home – Don’t Drink and Drive!

It was great to see our old friends and celebrate together again! It was a warm and fuzzy place to ring in 2017 and a good time was had by all. Thanks to everyone for the fun party!

Free Lunch Friday at the new Karl Strauss Brewing Co. in DTLA!

FREE LUNCH at the new Karl Strauss Brewing Co. in Downtown Los Angeles! (DTLA)

We were invited via email to a FREE meal on Friday!

One of the best perks of writing this Blog is that occasionally we are invited to experience cool events for free! “Training Day” at the new Karl Strauss Brewing Co. which just opened at 600 Wilshire in DTLA was a good one. Normally we wouldn’t make the trip and deal with traffic and parking downtown for just a free lunch, but we already had an appointment at the LA Auto Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday at 2pm! Bazinga!

15134734_1567597469933480_238076887190066121_n

Free Lunch at the Karl Strauss Brewing Co. in DTLA

We had a reservation for noon and traffic was good up until Hollywood Blvd, then it was stop and go into downtown at 11am as usual… we called from the car and let them know we might be late. We found street parking at a meter, walked a couple of blocks, arrived at ten minutes past noon and we were immediately seated by the hosts.

As you can see from the pics, it was busy and a lot of folks were enjoying a free lunch. They had also invited people who work in the neighborhood to sample the menu gratis. The service was excellent! There were a lot of very friendly people working hard and they were obviously going full speed for “Training Day”. So, I’ll take my hat off to Management for having a well trained and motivated staff, and have no complaints and only compliments about the service.

On The Menu: crispy brussel sprouts, salami/hard-boiled egg/cashews/apple plate, a Big Beer Burger with cheese and bacon, fries, an iced tea and a “Chocolate On Tap” (brownie/ice cream/whipped cream/chocolate and caramel sauce) for dessert!

NOTE: Traffic and Parking Sucks Downtown! We got lucky and after driving around downtown for awhile we found a meter a couple blocks from the restaurant. At $0.25 for every 5 minutes we paid for an hour and a half with quarters (the meters also take credit and debit cards for payment) and walked over for lunch. Use caution and always be aware when walking around Downtown Los Angeles, even during the day, because there have been numerous violent incidents involving the homeless, drug addicts and mentally ill individuals!

Dinner at The Stand in Encino, California

Dinner at The Stand in Encino, California

Thursday evening and it was decided that we would have dinner at The Stand on Ventura Boulevard (just west of Balboa) in Encino, in the beautiful San Fernando Valley, in city and county of Los Angeles, in the golden state of California.

13434752_1416579958368566_4525743957245295261_n

Dinner at The Stand in Encino, California

There’s a big lot with FREE parking, metered (8am-8pm Mon-Sat) street parking on Ventura Blvd and FREE street parking on the side streets.

13406733_1416579021701993_2231650389703872663_n

Dinner at The Stand in Encino, California

Enter through the gates and the outdoor patio and then enter the restaurant through the covered patio. You’ll be greeted by the large Menu Board on the wall and (usually) a line of people waiting to order at the registers.

TIP: Know your order! Decide before arriving at the register and know what you want.

Dinner at The Stand in Encino, California

Everything is cooked and made to order. Once you place your order and pay, they will give you a number for your table and then you’ll have to decide whether to sit inside or outside.

It was a beautiful evening outside, but because it wasn’t crowded we chose to sit inside. They have nice outdoor seating, covered and uncovered, but you’re still Ventura Blvd adjacent and it can be noisy and/or crowded at lunch and during “rush hour” dinner time.

Burgers, Hotdogs, Sandwiches and Salads are the choices at The Stand. With lots of options, extras and side orders available. Burgers start at $7.50, hotdogs are ~$4, sandwiches and salads, desserts (good cobbler & ice cream) and drinks. They serve fountain beverages, bottled sodas and water, coffee, tea, Beer, Wine, milkshakes and floats!

On The Menu: Cheeseburger, onion rings, sweet potato fries and a chocolate milkshake with whipped cream. Our party also ordered a Polish Dog and a Grilled Chicken Salad.

Cheeseburger, onion rings, sweet potato fries & a chocolate milkshake w/whipped cream

We chose a table inside the small dining room and waited for the food to be delivered. After a brief waiting period and some nice conversation, our dinner arrived and we ate our food.

We read another review while we were composing this Blog that called it a “BlandBurger” and that about describes it. Too much bun. Not enough seasoning on the meat patty, and it just wasn’t cooked right. We used Bbq sauce and mustard and it was still pretty tasteless. The onion rings and sweet potato fries were great and the chocolate milkshake was perfect, but  we wouldn’t order the cheeseburger again and it was a real disappointment. The Polish dog and the grilled chicken salad both looked good and got good reviews.

Dinner at the Texas Roadhouse BBQ in Medford, Oregon

Dinner at the Texas Roadhouse BBQ in Medford, Oregon

Our first night in Ashland, we had the fine idea to drive up to Medford (only about 20 minutes north on the 5 freeway) to the Texas Roadhouse BBQ for a big dinner.

Dinner at the Texas Roadhouse BBQ in Medford, Oregon

The first thing you’ll notice about the Texas Roadhouse BBQ is the decor. Lots of wood, brick, neon beer signs, farm and western chotckes, and more wood.

“New Country Rock” on the Jukebox at the Texas Roadhouse BBQ

The second thing you’ll notice is the noise… it’s very loud inside! The place is always busy and full of people. The hard wood surfaces and concrete floor amplify the noise and they play LOUD “New Country” music throughout the restaurant.

12928168_1359837990709430_8584578333506213914_n

Shelled Peanuts at the Texas Roadhouse BBQ in Medford, Oregon

On The Menu: BBQ baby back pork ribs, bone-in ribeye steak with fries, side of chili, dinner salad, bread & butter, salted shelled peanuts and a coke.

 

The food was good. The steak was done right. They boil their ribs and they boiled these a long time. If you like boiled BBQ ribs you’ll probably like theirs. The portions are large, there are lots of side items to choose from, and it’s good “country music” time. If you don’t like loud country music, best to find another restaurant. It’s a good concept and the waitstaff will keep on dancing for your enjoyment!

Wednesday Night Dinner at Sushi Ichiban Kan in Woodland Hills, California

Wednesday Night Dinner at Sushi Ichiban Kan in Woodland Hills, California

We went to my favorite sushi place: Sushi Ichiban Kan

Sushi Time!

Our friend Master Sushi Chef Hiro-san previously owned Sushi Hirosuke in Encino and Kabuki Sushi in Northridge, and now he operates Sushi Ichiban Kan, located on Ventura Blvd in Woodland Hills (actually it’s in Tarzana between Corbin and Winnetka).

Dinner at Sushi Ichiban Kan in Woodland Hills, California

The dining room is large, spacious and warm. The sushi bar has about 14 seats. There is a waiting area/lobby by the front door and host desk. Street parking (metered 8am-8pm) and free parking in a small lot off the alley in the rear is available.

Sushi Bar or Table? In addition to the regular menu, they have Monthly and Daily Specials, a Special Roll Menu and a Sushi Menu. They also do food “to go” and catering for parties.

Beer, wine and (hot & cold) sake are available with lunch or dinner.

CLICK ON ANY SMALL PIC TO SEE A LARGER PIC AND VIEW THE GALLERY!

ON THE MENU: Spicy tuna & spicy yellowtail cut rolls, baked scallop California roll, yellowtail-albacore-freshwater eel sushi, an order of “volcano”, a nigiri (mixed) sushi plate: albacore, tuna, yellowtail, salmon, mackerel, octopus, shrimp, tomago (egg), California roll, tuna and cucumber cut rolls and a coke.

My opinion is that this is the best sushi place in the San Fernando Valley and one of the best in Los Angeles. Hiro-san is a Master Chef and he gets the choice fish at the market. Everything they serve is wonderful, flavorful and super-fresh! It’s a little more expensive than most of the sushi restaurants in the valley, but it’s less expensive than most of the Westside and Hollywood places, and better quality than almost all others.

Dinner at AYCE GOGI Korean BBQ Restaurant in Van Nuys

Literally, a HOLE IN THE WALL in Van Nuys, California! I was invited to dinner and just went along for the ride. And it was a fun ride! We arrived at AYCE GOGI Korean BBQ a little after 5pm and it was already crowded.

12512452_1331504910209405_2147068029845243906_n

As you enter the restaurant, there is an undecorated waiting area between the front door and the dining room proper. There are two benches, some beer signs and two pinball machines in the enclosed “waiting room”.

12814740_1331504923542737_6648071339510139625_n

Then as you pass through the second set of doors you enter a large dining room. The host desk is just inside. There are booths along the two side walls and long tables in the center. Even with the industrial fans overhead, the room was thick with smoke from the grills. We were told there was a 20 minute wait, so we decided to hang out, and then they seated us at the center of a long table after only 5 minutes.

AYCE GOGI Korean BBQ Restaurant in Van Nuys – Booth or Table?

There was a salad, dishes with an assortment of appetizers and sauces placed on the table and waiting for us when we sat down. They took our drink order and left us to look at the menu (a single sheet in a plastic standee and a beer & wine list):

And then they give you a small frozen yogurt too…so full.

Marinated Spicy Pork and Beef Bulgogi waiting to be cooked

I took some good pictures, but then the food started coming fast and furious! So, I had to focus on the food cooking on the grill while trying to eat the food on my plate, while having a conversation with my dinner companion, so the picture taking stopped.

NOTE: The dining room is very loud. There were a lot of people, they were playing music, the fans were relatively quiet but still noisy and there was a lot of action and food service happening. I wouldn’t recommend coming here for a quiet romantic dinner. This is a place that’s all about the food and the food is good. Everything else is “NO FRILLS” so don’t expect much more than a constant stream of raw marinated meats ready for grilling.

“You cook it yourself!” Beef Kalbi Cooking on the Grill

We tried a lot of different meats and our favorites were the beef bulgogi, beef kalbi and the spicy pork, although everything we ate was pretty darn good.

Too Much Food! Meat Coma… so full!

Well, we went for it! And it was a good dinner. The service was good, the food was good and certainly plentiful, and we enjoyed our dining experience very much. I would definitely go back again.

The All You Can Eat Dinner is priced at $22.95 per person after 3pm (NOTE: “If any member of a party is ordering AYCE, all members must also order AYCE”) and it’s worth it if you’re hungry and want a lot of meat. I’m pretty sure we both got our money’s worth! They also have beer, wine and sake, as well as a selection of other beverages. They have Lunch for $17.95 and there’s also an express lunch priced at $12.95 served between 11am – 3pm.
