IKEA is definitely one of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat. I was in the area after buying a new dock for my iPod shuffle (awkward Craigslist transaction btw!) and made my way just across the other side of Texas Street leading to IKEA’s Mission Valley location. The cafeteria style seating wont win the hearts of everyone, but knowing that your food comes from environmentally and socially responsible sources definitely leaves some room for comfort. I had the pleasure of enjoying a plate of their coveted Swedish Meatball plate and a side of their steamed veggies. Looks good, no?
edit: the iPod dock that I bought ended up being fake and useless. Bummer. I’m such an idiot.
I took this photo a few weeks ago. It was on one of those moments where its like shit.. what the fuck. It’s so fucking quite right now. I’m expecting this year to be pretty damn difficult and hectic. In a good way though. So I guess I better enjoy the silence.
Very rarely will I post event flyers on this blog. But this event is pretty special. This Friday, BLENDS San Diego will be celebrating their 5-year anniversary shindig, Five Year Function (F.Y.F.). For those that don’t know me, I’ve been working at BLENDS San Diego since its opening and it has been my mainstay for a good portion of my working life. Presented by Victory Nightlife, the night’s music will be provided by MindzAlike’s all-stars, Mark Marcelo and DJ Julz. This will definitely be awesome.
The night also lies on my birthday weekend, so come say hello and congratulate me on making it to 27 (still alive!). Free giveaways/raffle drawings will also be held through the night.
