I realize that the secret to life starts and ends with your outlook. Really it makes absolutely no sense to get frustrated and fuss or yell at folks in traffic…seriously how often have the folks in front of you moved because you started loosing it? We are better served by just changing how we look at the situation. Well, today was a great time for me to apply that thinking.
We had a profitable day…met with a group about Food Truck funding, got some additional direction on our growth strategy, inked two more jobs, and did some shopping for a job: all this in addition to working 5 jobs in 7 days. So while we were at the store we had the rare opportunity to acquire some exotic fruit. The we, in this case, is me, Chef and ½ of the Government Twins. So in the store we picked up some Dragon
Fruit and Horned Melon and let’s just say we’ve got plans–insert maniacal mad scientist laugh here.
After our exciting shopping spree, we had an insatiable desire for Sushi. Now bear in mind we truly only like two Sushi spots in all of the Bay Area. One location is in Millbrae and the other is in Napa. So with those locations being too far away for us to get to (remember we had cooking to do) we decided to utilize Yelp to find a good spot in Berkeley. Names will be changed to save the innocent (and keep us from any lawsuits). We went to a very well reviewed location with a rich history; sadly they closed their lunch hour at 2PM. So we found another location that was open at that time. With 300+ reviews you would think that it must be good right? Not so much. Apparently all the reviews were made by college students with the munchies who had been up all night studying or had enough money to rub together to escape the monotony of a Ramen dinner. Sadly we were sucked into the vortex of malformed taste buds and colorless palates. I blame Government Twin! Just kidding.
I will say that I have learned or rather that it has been reaffirmed, that we just can’t eat out everywhere. Actually, its not that we can’t eat everywhere, we can. The thing is that every meal will not be a great experience that we can inspire us. But every meal is a lesson. We can go anywhere and learn. See. It all came around. I am not going to go on Yelp and lampoon that poor restaurant. They have their place in the culinary universe: providing an affordable alternative to the college age palate. But as for
Life is short…eat something memorable.
