Luke’s Lobster

January 24, 2010

…because I love Luke’s Lobster and my roommate/best friend is in their YouTube Video- hah! (see 1:13)

By the way, get the sampler if you’re a Luke’s Lobster newbie…nice way to acclimate yourself 🙂


Apparently, I ate a lot in 2009. Browsing through the photos on my phone, most of them were food related and I’m glad they were! If the greatness of 2009 was measured by what (and how much) I ate, it was truly a great and memorable year.
Here is a documentation or a “Culinary Tour” of all my delightful eats in 2009 logged by my phone, bon appetite!
