So tonight I am staying at the restaurant overnight, (I have a little break room upstairs shhhhh). The reasoning for this special little sleep over of where I work is that I have to appear in traffic court in the morning. At 10 pm sharp, I will have to hope that the officer who promised me that he would not show up to court honors his commitment, so that i don’t get screwed up the bum.
But on another note, I have decided to take a mental break from my chaotic world and just sit and chill at the bar of the restaurant and practice a few new cocktails and do a little self taste test. However I did end up quitting early because I made a horrific drink.
(Bombay Sapphire Gin + Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur + White Grapefruit Juice) x Shake up = Terribleness in my mouth….. (hehe thats what she said!)
So now I’m all spread out on my bar, websurfing on the laptop, watching two plasma tvs and I’m enjoying a nice Hendricks and Tonic.
- My chill space
- The Bar
- My little reward for the day
Just for this brief moment I am probably living every guy’s fantasy right now.
Well…. if you don’t count the silly fantasies that involve women of course…..
hmmmm… right.. ok No….this somehow became not as awesome anymore..
Rough day today. Broken Martini glass, slow business & lots of family drama. So tonight I’ll just leave you with this drink.
The Pink Lychee
3 oz Citron vodka
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
1 1/2 oz Lychee Puree (strained)
decent but girly.
Digging this song. Its sad but its awesome.
Tomorrow will be better! Cherry Blossoms are coming soon! Maybe some good pictures this year!?
Its nice and sunny in DC today! Too bad I’m destined to be inside in my dimly lit bar at the restaurant. Still in quite the rut in attempting to come up with a delicious signature that matches up to both my crazy popular Lychee Martini and Paradise Cosmopolitan (yea i know the name is terrible but i come up with drinks not names!). So if anyone has a flavor profile that they especially enjoy let me know and it might inspire me to come up with something!
Tree outside my house
In the meantime, nothing new has really occurred with me other than the typical back and forth between the incrediably dull suburbs of Maryland and the everchanging atmosphere of DC Chinatown.
So before i go off and start drafting a new specials menu, I’ll leave you with this sushi roll of the day!
The Sweetie Roll
Also I just had a wonderful conversation with this author that just came in and ate at Momiji. The name of his novel is Havana Lunar. Robert is a professor at the University of New Mexico and is in DC for a book reading and basically was very informative and helpful to my sporadic thoughts today of grad school, media careers and alternative grad programs ie. non-public health ones haha. Well that encounter was a nice consolation to a lack of business today…..well not really, but its a start.
Actually there is no comforting situation for lack of business, unless its Megan Fox coming in here and telling me she has a thing for guys named Andy…..
Old photoshopped picture that brought back a lot of memories from me. Its funny that a single image can bring back the times.
remember the lights and warmth.
On another note Natasha Richardson died, I am pretty sad about it. I feel for her family. It seems like only the good ones go first. She was an avid fund raisers for good causes and a humanitarian, wonderful actress and a beautiful person.
The place I am everyday! come and visit me @ my restaurant I’ll make a drink for you!
oh how time flys when you are in Chinatown
So i guess i’m on wordpress now too. Basically I’m starting to fill a void i guess with a crazy amount of web presence. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Xanga, Tumblr, and now wordpress. Its gonna take me a while to figure this out and then maybe i will jazz it up and also pimp out the www.momijidc.com site.
Yeaa… my restauarant’s site is a basic Apple (.me account) theme….
wellllllll back to the task of backing up my photography and media, on my new portable Western Digital Passport.
Remember kiddies, backing up sounds dorky until you want to machete yo self in the face when your computer dies…..
