Acid Wash Returns March 25th At the Living Room!

Acid Wash 80's Night at the Living Room

I bumped into DJ Nocturna the other week and she told me that Acid Wash is returning on March 25th at their new venue, the Living Room! Dancing to 80’s music on a Wednesday for FREE? Doesn’t get any better than that!

Off The Wall Restaurant Review

Off the Wall Restaurant in Pearl Kai Shopping Center

So I’ve been sick for the past couple of weeks and sadly forced to eat at places only near the house. It doesn’t usually leave us with many choices, but the other day Kimi and I went to Pearl Kai Shopping Center in hopes of getting some Thai food for dinner. Unfortunately, the place was closed and wouldn’t be open for another hour or so.  Our friend Emily was coming over to work on her FIDM portfolio and, honestly, I was starving and didn’t want to wait for Champa Thai. So, we wandered around the shopping center in search of food and stumbled upon Off the Wall Bar/Restaurant/Catering.

The place was actually pretty nice. Definitely a mellow place to grab drinks after work if you’re in the area. There’s a big screen TV above the bar and a fair number of tables (in case you don’t want to sit at the bar area), so I think it’d be a good place to hang out and eat pupus without feeling like you’re in an actual bar.  I’m guessing this is where the /restaurant part of  Off the Wall’s name comes in.

We picked up food for three, met up with Emily, and then headed back to the apartment.  We sat in the living room and stuffed our faces. It was heavenly. Emily and I both got the arare karaage chicken (all entrees came with rice and salad). Kimi got the soy miso chicken.

The food is  a little on the pricey side, but we had more than we could eat and it was delicious.  Next time–when I’m no longer sick–I’m going to try the bacon wrapped shrimp. Mmm.

This isn’t your normal plate lunch/take out kind of place, so don’t expect your staple plate lunch choices. Instead, Off the Wall takes your favorite local food and raises the bar in terms of taste.

I grabbed a menu from there–if anyone is interested, I’ll scan it and upload it here.
