Girlfriend and I went to Long Beach for a day at the suggestion of a Buffalo Exchange employee a month or so ago.
…Yeah, something about a vintage letterman jacket being sold at La Bomba on 4th.
Started the day off by having lunch at Pho 86 with Kristine’s family. They treated me to a special bowl of pho and we all ate it with the quickness while Kristine’s little brother Christopher and I talked about 3DS Zelda and video games.
Drove to Long Beach and stopped by Buffalo Exchange on 2nd Street. Scored an old red nylon parka for a pleasantly surprising 50% off and a Peter Bjorn and John t-shirt. Not that I’m a huge fan of PB&J… I just need some exercise clothes.
Then we hit up Retro Row on 4th Street where we hit a myriad of vintage thrift shops. None of us came up on anything but it was really nice to just check out some old clothes. Notable: Kristine’s outfit matched that of a mannequin’s.
After, went to a shopping area called the Long Beach Town Center or something where we walked around and got a Rolo McFlurry, medium fries and a sweet tea with creamer. (Don’t judge us…)
Final stop: Shoreline Village where we walked around, took pictures, and ended the night at Yard House with a nice dinner by the sea. This resulted in a food coma which, upon careful test of my wellness to drive, lasted and hit us full force when our seemingly high selves ended up at Rite-Aid for some ice cream.
