Weekend Update: Thrifting, Ali Baba and 80s Prom

On Friday, T.J. and I spent the afternoon scouring thrift stores for 80s attire. We found some really interesting clothing. 

Purple, sparkly, floor-length, and shoulder padded. No joke. My bag didn’t match. So sad.

Ali Baba is a Mediterranean restaurant that was highly recommended to me by my Jewish neighbor who has visited Israel. He said the food was very close to authentic. The menu contains gyros, souvlaki, kebobs, and a ton of vegetarian sides. Falafel, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, fettoush, and foul madamas are just a few of the options. I ordered the chicken kebob with basmati rice, pita bread, hummus, and spanakopita. DSC_2332T.J. ordered the kofta kebob (ground sirloin with parsley and onion) with couscous and cauliflower salad. DSC_2336We also ordered falafel…how can you not get falafel? God bless a chickpea. DSC_2340 I think T.J. was a little intimidated by the menu at first, but he did enjoy his food. I was in love with their hummus, but it seemed that the rice and spanakopita had been sitting out too long. There are a lot of other things on the menu I’d like to try, so I will be back!

Fast forward to Saturday night. 80s prom was ridiculous. Open bar + trashy clothing = awesome evening. Here are some of my favorite pics.
