On Saturday a group of us drove over to Santa Monica to celebrate Freddy's birthday. It was such a great day! We started off at the 3rd St Promenade, grabbed some coffees and walked around a bit. After that, we had a delicious dinner on the pier at a restaurant called Bubba Gump (themed after the movie, Forest Gump.) None of us had ever been there before and it was great. They had mostly shrimp dishes (of course) but I had the best fish and chips that I have ever tasted.
We hung out on the pier for a bit and then spent the rest of the night at the promenade. We got some crepes for dessert and Aaron and I ordered the nutella, banana and walnut... It was heavenly! I went to the store today and got everything I needed to make my own so I will let you know how that goes.
The restaurant incorporated some fun details from the movie. For example, there were two license plates on the table. The red "Stop Forrest Stop" plate was used to signal that a table needed service and the blue "Run Forrest Run" meant that everything was fine. They also had ping pong paddles on the table that had the drink menus on them.
