ping pong

So i like to consider myself as pretty athletically inclined. I was a competitive gymnast and diver and was on my high schools ski team, i’ve dabbled in soccer and am an avid golfer.Not to mention a pretty kick ass air hockey component. So when my friends and I decided to test out a new ping pong bar in the city, i underestimated how hard it was really going to be. Let’s just say you wont  be seeing me at the summer olympics anytime soon.

When ping pong bars starting opening up in Toronto, I was so excited and eager to visit. Sadly I never seemed to get around to doing it but when Serve opened up in Hamilton a couple of months ago I knew it was finally my time to shine. I imagined by friends and i playing hardcore ping pong like Forest Gump … sadly that was not the case. Instead balls were flying everywhere! To our defence we had sipped on a couple adult beverages which i’m sure didn’t help our hand eye coordination haha.

cheers to pink tea

As an avid watcher of the show “You Gotta Eat Here” there have been many episodes where i’ve said to myself “I NEED TO GO THERE!”But one restaurant in particular always stood out to me, or should i say one item on their menu always stood out to me and yup you guessed it, it’s the PINK tea. Lets be serious it’s not everyday you can order a cup of pink tea off a menu. Thankfully my best friend Marie also shared the same enthusiasm as i did towards this beautiful cup of tea … (I guess thats why she is one of my best friends) so we finally decided to hunt down this restaurant and enjoy the elusive beverage. I wont kid you though we also ate heap loads of delicious food in the process. IMG_5903

There was a grand total of six people and i think we ordered enough food to feed a small village. The servers must have thought we were such amateurs. Thankfully the one couple lived in Toronto and they now have breakfast lunch and dinner figured out for the next week. I don’t think they’ll want to look at rice until 2017.

Then to cool off our palates we tried indian style ice cream served on a stick which came in pistachio and almond flavour. Let me just tell you how necessary that was,  by the end of my meal i felt like i could breathe fire!
