Bang and roll

18 Aug

Happy almost Friday all! Not a lot going on over here just getting ready to finish up working my temp gig. It will be actually be somewhat bittersweet since I’ve gotten to know the guys there pretty well (well for being there seven days that is) and yes, all guys. There is no other women in the office which is very refreshing. I love my girls but I hate working with women. There tends to be so much drama and backstabbing that comes along with it and guys may bring drama, 95% of the time if they have a problem with you, they will go ahead and tell you and I can respect that.

When I do see the guys in the office, it’s great but that’s usually only for an hour each day since they go out into the field and sales calls. And the rest of the day is lonely. I would like to thank Youtube for helping me kill hours whether it be watching comedy

cute doggie videos

or listening to music

I love the new Trina song but this will always be my favorite

And that’s about it. I went to Bonefish Grill last night and can confidently say it’s my favorite Wednesday night place thanks to their $5 Bang Bang Shrimp special! They call it Bang Wednesday which I think goes along well with the notion of hump day.

I’ve never had the Bang Bang shrimp before but have been told multiple times how wonderful it was. The masses don’t lie, the shrimp was zesty and tasty. I love the bang bang sauce however next time I will get the sauce on the side since it was doused in it. A bonus is that it’s served over a bed of greens so it’s like a little shrimp salad for $5.

$3 glasses of house wine are equally enticing as well

And since sushi one time this week wasn’t enough, I went again for lunch today to Sushi Rock. This place is right near where I’m working for the week. It’s very unassuming in a tiny strip mall but I read online that they have lunch specials with a decent review so why not?

The first thing I noticed was there wasn’t a single soul in the place. Hmmmmm, it was still early so I didn’t want to judge them too early on. The second thing I noticed was their menu

All of their menu covers are record covers which goes with the name Sushi Rock. I absolutely loved that idea and the chance that I got a menu with the album of one of my favorite cd’s of all time made it even better.

Like Bluefin, they had both Japanese and Thai lunch specials that come with either miso soup or ginger dressing

My dad got his food first and I’ll admit it, I was having a case of food envy with his chicken and steak teriyaki. They didn’t do skimp on pieces of meat and it was loaded with tons of veggies!

He doesn’t like broccoli so I stole a few pieces while waiting for my lunch the #4 Special with sushi, sashimi and shrimp tempura

Holy cannoli—so. much. food. And only for $10, the same price for my lunch on Tuesday but with more sushi with substance. Sushi Rock didn’t have the chic, hip atmosphere like Bluefin but more of a quaint, neighborhood feel to it which I actually dig more. I don’t need to feel sexy when I eat sushi, I need to feel like I’m getting a good deal. I definitely got a good deal at Sushi Rock and can’t wait to visit again!

Do you work with more men, women or is it equal? Do you prefer to work with one more than the other?

Anyone else getting their bang on??

    I totally miss places like Bonefish. It is so hard to find yummy deals on food around here. Those shrimp look good but I think the idea of getting the sauce on the side is perfect.

    That lumpy dog is too cute. 🙂

    I need more sushi in my life, as the only time I eat it is when I’m traveling. Veggie sushi is my bang-bang shrimp. Must remedy this situation.

    Anyway, we have equal men and women in the office and yes, I prefer the men. A few of the women are great–around my age and pretty cool–but the older ones are gossipy and complain about anything and everything all the time. It’s constant drama, even if it’s just someone not taking out the trash.

    I’m so glad that you got to experience the joy that is Bang Bang Shrimp. I actually prefer it over the fish and other items they have on the menu, which are kind of meh in my opinion. And get out of my head! I was jamming to some old-school Trina on Spotify, totally brings me back to high school.

    Am I coming to stay with you and get drunk and mercury poisoning?
    Yes yes yes.

    i hate working with women. For the rest of our damn lives it’ll be a battle for SOMETHING. I thought it would be over after high school but of course I was wrong. Anyways I wanna BANG BANG WITH YOUUUU. Seriously start scoping out denver restaurants…I have so many places to take you…

    Three dollar glasses of wine? Sign me up!

    I totally agree about working with women- there just seems to be so much more drama. At my last (sadface 😦 ) job it was a great dynamic bc though there were other women, they weren’t attorneys. In my opinion and experience, the general rule seems to be that female attorneys are beotches (though I like to think I’m an exception to the rule since I don’t give an eff and have nothing to prove, haha).

    Okay, I love that sushi place just for the menu covers alone. So cool! I love Trina and her juicy booty too.

    gah i love their bang bang shrimp! cant beat that deal on hump day.

    work w/ mostly all women, aside from the boss, and there is always something. not gonna lie, sometimes i delve in the gossip, but i’m more of a listener 😉 ok, not always. i wouldnt mind a dude once in awhile though, just for different perspective.
