Weekend Nosh: August 12

Hello! I am glad we have made it to another Friday. I love Friday, it is the day filled with hope for a great weekend. Here are a few things I suggest to make your weekend better:

Food: Chozo Mama - This is a Peruvian restaurant, with locations in Burbank and in Pasadena. The food is interesting, like a blend of Mexican and Asian cuisine. Nice and spicy with lots of flavor, try their fried Plantains as well. Excellent all around, though a bit pricey. Good news is, the portions are large.

Drink: Buffalo Trace Bourbon - Clocking in at around $20 for a 750ml bottle, this is the perfect middling bottle of bourbon. Definitely on par with Maker's Mark, if you like that, and around the same price. Buffalo Trace gets bonus points for being 90 proof. It has a smoothness to it that is sometimes hard to find in bourbon, I prefer mine made into a Manhattan, or a Murricane (see this link if you don't know about the Murricane), a sentimental favorite named after my favorite actor.

Movie: Broken Flowers - While on the subject of Bill Murray, I suggest one of his dramatic roles in this oddball drama. Murray is fantastic as the aging player Don Johnston ("with a T") on a mission to find out if he has an illegitimate son. As he weeds his way through his past lovers, he finds them to each be more unhappy with their life then the last. The movie is melancholy, but also silly and is a great watch if for no other reason the Bill's incredible talent. If you like him in any capacity, give it a shot.

Have a great weekend and stay classy San Diego.
