Game of Thrones

As usual, I am “tardy to the party”.  I finished watching season 1 of Game of Thrones.  This HBO series is epic! If you are into fantasy, medieval times, tales of knights and kingdoms this is the show to watch.  All the characters on the show are well rounded with tons of history behind them that you want to uncover.  About almost every episode is a cliff hanger that makes you want to keep watching.  Luckily, the second season is around the corner.  If you haven’t watched it, watch it!!!

What is your favorite character?  Who do you dislike?  Joffrey, is definitely the character I want to see die the most.  And my favorite….I haven’t made up my mind yet.

Marhaba at Sunset Place

If there is one thing I like doing is recommending a place with good customer service.  This past weekend I dined at Marhaba by Sunset Place Mall.  This establishment serves Mediterranean cuisine and it’s quiet tasty to say the least.  Their staff is very polite and attentive and sitting at their outside table on a cool night was nice.

Hookahs are available in a variety of flavors for $20 for two persons and $2 each additional person.  It is a bit pricey for a hookah, but hey it was a good time.  The main reason I’m praising their customer service is mostly because I’m a klutz and broke the hookah we were smoking.  Nice one!  But the waiter came over, apologized although it was in no way any fault of his own, and cleaned up the mess.  After eating our hearts away and having a pretty fun dinner,  we asked for the check and they didn’t even charge us for breaking the hookah.

 

So I highly recommend checking Marhaba out.  They have a variety of dishes from kabob’s, humus appetizers, Greek salads, lamb, meat and chicken platters, etc.  Enjoy!
