I started off my 21st birthday in June with a box of fresh Santa Barbara uni. My brother is a seafood wholesaler so it was really fresh. :) Uni is the best!!!!!
Then I got my birthday cake which were next to four very big candles because my sister thought we didn't have birthday candles so they lit candles we use when there's an electricity outtage. It was a watermelon cake from Baskin Robins :)
We stayed at the Westin for only $100 per night. The tip is to google, "priceline bidding." and also go on forums like www.betterbidding.com to see what is available for the price. There are some sweet deals although you can't choose which hotel but you get to choose from 2 star hotels to 4 star ones. We got a 4 star hotel that usually goes for $230 per night. Westin even allows dogs but J told me that Momo would just ruin our fun :(
The Westin we stayed at was right next to the Horton plaza and also one street down from the restaurant we ate at which was called, "Blue Point."
bread - :( no good.
On my birthday I made J eat two oysters!! :) I remember there were hama hama, pacific(?) and I can't remember the last one. My least favorite were the hamahamas. They are quiet fishy and it's much harder to get used to the taste.
All I have to say is Blue Point was surprisingly more expensive then I thought. My steak made up for it though, our server was snobby. I think maybe because we were the youngest couple there that night. She was just so "whatever" with us.
The next day J and I woke up super late and rushed to the museums. We, of course ate lunch first!! & let me say it was the best lunch I've had for awhile. Really good, but def. not cheap. I never knew sandwiches could taste so good.
Our lunch came out to be almost $40 including tax and tip. Worth it, and I want to thank the information desk for introducing J and I to this place!! :)
J likes space Ice cream, I don't get it.. it's not even cold. It taste like candy and they charge me $4 for this??
I also got a baggie from my sisters. :)
