I'm head of the class
I'm a quarter back
My mom says I'm a catch
I'm never last picked
I got a cheerleader chick
I have the Review of the Day (ROTD) on Los Angeles Yelp today. ROTD days are always good days because I wake up to bunches of compliments from my fellow Yelpers. It makes me feel so... so... appreciated. So I knew I had the ROTD before I ever signed on to Yelp from just perusing the e-mails in my gmail inbox. Thank you, House of Blues Gospel Brunch!
Here's the text of my review: (or you can find it at http://www.yelp.com/biz/RMb04rUwvhOT1gLt2vx6Xw#hrid:75Qjd7d64AkYJ78yIHOysw)
HOUSE OF BLUES (Sunset Strip)
Two words: Gospel Brunch.
The boyfriend and I went to gospel brunch this fine Easter morn. I feel like I should be able to recite all the food we ate, but seriously, there were more calories consumed in a one hour period than anyone should ever actually admit to. So I'll just give you the highlights:
Cheddar cheese grits - 5 stars (more if more were available) - I LUV me some grits!
Mac and Cheese - 3 stars (could have been cheesier)
Sausage - 5 stars (excellent flavor and texture; and I'm not even a huge sausage person!)
Biscuits N Gravy - 4 stars (BF loved the gravy, but I didn't actually try it, so second hand, but the biscuits were great!)
Southern Fried Chicken - 5 stars (no description required)
Jambalaya - 4 stars (chicken chunks a bit dry, otherwise quite tasty)
Waffles with fresh berries - 5 stars (!!!)
Heirloom Tomato Salad - 3 stars (good, not excellent, but then again, it is so not tomato season; I defer)
Banana Bread Pudding - 5+ stars (you are freaking kidding me! I would weigh 300 pounds if I had unlimited access to this dessert!!)
Gospel singers - 5 stars
HOB is generally a fun venue. I've seen some really fun, mainly 80's shows here. But the gospel brunch on Sunday takes it from fun 4 star venue up to 5 star extravaganza!!
***Gratuitous star sighting note: I saw Ducky. Yes, you heard me right, Ducky, from Pretty in Pink, at an ABC/Soft Cell concert here last year. Ducky at an 80's band show. Really. Top that.***
