Islands Birthday Burger and Kona Pie.

June 7th, 2008 No comments

Thank you for the birthday gift Islands — And what a great gift it was.  I truly LOVE your burgers.  I most often get the Hawaiian Burger, which is what you see here.

These pictures are taken on the patio at the Irvine, California location off Bison.

The Kona Pie is very good too.  I’ve enjoyed it a few times in the past, but this day I was on the run without refrigeration.  The waiter brought it by for a quick photo, but then I gave it to a large party timed for dessert.  That was fun to do — They were excited about it too.  I REALLY wanted to take a bite, but you can’t give it away after that, and I knew I couldn’t finish it all — So I’m glad it went to a bigger cause.


Thank you Islands.  Your birthday gift was generous and pleasing.

Lunch Blast From The Past.

Lunch with Mom and Grandma at Black Angus Steakhouse.  I had not been to one in years.  And I’m happy to report that our meal was thoroughly enjoyable.  The Salmon and both Steaks were nicely cooked.  The Tarter Sauce should be mentioned as being very good — It has a strong dill flavor.  

All was served at the Cerritos, California location.  As a side note, I used to go dancing there when it was THE THING to do.  It took me back.  I’m not sure if people still dance there at night?
