Since I couldn’t get all my boss chicks and industry friends together for my Glow in The Dark theme birthday party last week; I decided on the perfect mid-week happy hour gathering with authentic italian appetizers and wine. A couple of my friends that live in the Hollywood area suggested 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. It’s conveniently located below the 1600 Vine Luxury apartment living off Hollywood & Vine. When you enter off the street, you are greeted by this beautiful chandelier and a cute pizza guy kneading out pizza dough. Upstairs is the bar area. First order of business, turning water into wine and ordering some truffle cheese bread.
Between the breaking of truffle cheese bread and excessive amounts of wine, I nibbled on broccolini, baked goat cheese, marinated olives, and antipasto plate. It had been a really stressful week. I felt like drinking my life away. Unfortunately the ‘happy’ hour must come to an end and back to hustle we go. But out of courtesy and respect for my birthday celebration, my waiter kept the $5 happy hour wine special going for about 2 more rounds. als. When we needed another round, waiter was nice, he even participated in one of my birthday games called #wineaboutit. As the wine poured in, so did our laughs throughout the night. Where we were sitting you could see the city lights as people walking down the boulevard. I was snapping the whole time but didn’t save any of my pictures. Oh well, life is too short. Thank God I was able to celebrate another healthy birthday with amazing friends, good food and great wine.
