Non-OC Happy Hour Adventure: The Water’s Edge

Mai Tai

I headed out to Palm Springs for the weekend with my parents this past Thursday. I figured it would be better to beat the Friday traffic by going out with them a day early. Luckily, with my Wi-Fi Hotspot, I was able to work in a brand new environment, which is always a nice change. […]

Asian Culinary Adventure: Nova


I was originally supposed to go to The Fifth with another friend but the timing did not work out for that day. Luckily after another quick search, I came across Nova Kitchen and Bar which was the perfect halfway point for both of us. The facade alone for Nova is quite impressive and inviting. Anyone […]

Taste of Thailand: Pad Thai Guy

We’ve had plenty of different cuisines of Asian origins from Vietnamese at Nguyen’s Kitchen to Taiwanese food at Din Tai Fung. Now it’s time to let our taste buds go to Thailand for this Delivery Happy Hour Adventure. I don’t have it nearly as much as I would have liked to but every time I […]

Meal Prep Happy Hour: Home Sweet Home

I may be cheating a bit on this particular Happy Hour Adventure since the main reason for it was technically for my meal prep for the week. But when I first made this particular meal prep I thought to myself, this would make an excellent appetizer for a Happy Hour. I think you will think […]

Asian Burger Delivery: Six Alley

I’ve decided to more Delivery and Make Your Own Happy Hour Adventures because of the rise of cases happening. Plus I haven’t been doing too many Make Your Own Adventures so I wanted to start doing those again. There’s a lot more work involved with them since I have to cook up an appetizer, mix […]

Classic Chinese Delivery: Happy Kitchen

Every so often we have virtual lunches with our teams at work. I’m sure you remember my first one from Nguyen’s Kitchen or my most recent one from Aloha Hawaiian BBQ. It is always nice to get in some interaction with work people even if it is virtual. I love seeing what everyone gets to […]

Korean Delivery: Krave Asian Fusion

This Happy Hour Adventure was supposed to be completely different. I had placed my order for one restaurant and then I look at my email where it said that the order could not be completed. I didn’t see this until 30 minutes after I ordered so I had to scramble to find something new. Luckily […]

Entree Happy Hour: The Recess Room

My dad called asking if I wanted to meet up for a Happy Hour in the area after the workday. So after sending over a list of outdoor Happy Hours we finally decided on one that was halfway between us. We decided to meet up right at 5 which was when the restaurant opened and […]

Covered Patio Happy Hour: The Country Club

I ended up going for a drive on Friday because I just really needed to get out since I had such a long week at work. I drove around the Costa Mesa area and came across the Country Club. This is a place that has become known as the after-party for many of our Office […]

Outdoor Happy Hour: Twenty Eight

On this particular Friday, I actually had the day off! My work was kind enough to give us the day off since this year the 4th of July landed on a Saturday. My dad had the day off and both he and Christine needed to run a bunch of errands and were in the area. […]
