I made the most of my day off on President’s Day, spending the time with some great friends. One of my girlfriends took me out to eat at Shalom Bombay, where they have a $12.95 lunch buffet. We enjoyed tandoori chicken, chicken curry, vegetable dishes, fresh salad, lentils, basmati rice, naan, breaded fried vegetables.
It was all delicious. Since my friend was treating me, she urged me to try dessert. I picked the chocolate chip cookie dough cake with warm molten chocolate inside and whipped cream all around it. It tasted of rich soft chocolate, and I savored every bite.
After eating, we headed to the Central Park Zoo (my first time!) which small but filled with cute animals such as the polar bear, snow leopard, red panda, monkeys and a tropical forest with birds and other creatures. There were even penguins, but I was disappointed when they didn’t follow my finger as I moved it along the glass- This is something that the penguins at the Monterey Bay Aquarium always do, and I’ve always found that to be fun and charming.
The rest of the night was spent at Pulse Karaoke with about 30 other people. Pulse is a gorgeous, spacious spot with purplish lighting and a sleek design of white couches and white tables. It is a trendy spot, complete with inexpensive drinks and appetizers of nachos, fried coconut shrimp, wings, and mozzarella sticks.
We basically had the whole place to ourselves, so got to sing to our heart’s content. Some of ones I did (with the help of others) were, “Rolling in the Deep,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” and “Holiday.” There was a great energy throughout the night and we all helped each other out by jumping on stage to sing or backup dance.
