On Wednesday, we had dinner at the country club with the Nittanys and the Butt-Chins. I noshed on this wonderful pan-seared veal chop.
Mr. Monkey devoured the bacon-wrapped filet mignon.
Ugly pics, I know, but all I had was my little pink point-and-shoot, and the lighting was rather dim. Sad face.
During dinner, Mrs. Nittany and Mrs. Butt-Chin asked me what I like to do for fun at night. Mrs. Nittany loves clubbing. Mrs. Butt-Chin loves bars. They have a five-year-old and a three-year-old, respectively, yet are far more active at night than I am.
I mentioned I like karaoke. The two squealed, and that sealed it.
We went to Rosen Music Studio (3474 W. 8th Street, Los Angeles) after dinner. We don't live too far from K-town, so we stopped by to retrieve my camera and to change into comfy non-country-club clothes.
We went with Li'l Nittany and Butt-Chin, Jr. in tow. Maybe being a parent doesn't have to cramp your style after all.
I think I had six of these filled with apple soju.
Before things got really rowdy, though, we had fun with the kiddos. Li'l Nittany loves singing, just like his mama. He especially liked singing "No Air." Mrs. Nittany was Jordin Sparks, and Li'l Nittany was Chris Brown. Hee hee!
Mr. Nittany joined in, too. They're the Korean-Filipino Von Trapp family!
Li'l Nittany and Butt-Chin, Jr. sang "Jingle Bells" together.
The kids fell asleep around 11 or midnight.
We went strong for several more hours, though.
Can you tell why this guy is called Butt-Chin? When we went to Korean BBQ last week, Butt-Chin, Jr. shouted, "My daddy has a butt chin!" Hilarity.
How the little boys slept through Mr. Nittany's rendition of System of a Down's "Chop Suey" is beyond me.
Mr. Nittany did a pretty mean William Hung impression, too.
And he rocked "My Humps."
Orchid. The service was very good, and the bathroom was cleaner, too.
Good times until 3 a.m.
Those kids are too cute - and LOL at the "Butt-Chins"ReplyDelete
But did the bathroom have the warming toilet?!?ReplyDelete
Seriously...how fun. I want to be Mrs. Nittany and Mrs. Butt-Chin when I have kids. No joke. I like that they show me it can be done.
That pic of you and Mr. Monkey at the end is very cute! Also..HOW FUN!!ReplyDelete
damn, you went strong till 3am.ReplyDelete
dude, of COURSE having kids doesn't have to cramp one's style!
rosen was THE place to be back in the day. glad to see it's still around and seemingly cheaper (?).ReplyDelete
so said i missed orchid, still.
That looks SO FUN! We don't have karaoke places (just karaoke at bars) but we do have fun playing Rock Band with friends.ReplyDelete
LOL at butt-chins. I call Tom Brady "butt chin" and it drives Tim crazy.
Oooh! Those are some cool parents.ReplyDelete
I'm cracking up that the kids got into to the karaoke game. And the fact that you are dressed for comfort while the other lady is dressed for clubbing. And of course the butt chin comment. :) Looks like a really fun night!ReplyDelete
Thank god you explained the Butt Chin.ReplyDelete
What a fun night! And do I sense a location change in the works for next year's Karaoke-fest?ReplyDelete
butt chin! we had a family friend that we said the same thing about. thankfully, he was a good sport about the whole thing :)ReplyDelete
sounds like an awesome night!
