#RebukeTheCalories: 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria

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.

800pizza_2.jpgBetween 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.

…its about being in the moment and creating memories instead of trying to create a moment to capture a memory #KahluasKonfessions

Go ahead judge me. I woke up like this #Flawless!!! I slept in my birthday makeup but that #toofaced liquid matte lipstick in #DropDeadRed is still popn’ tho.

After a night of excessive communion and breaking bread with friends, this was the perfect ending to a my pre-birthday turn-up weekend. A nice stroll on a sunny Hollywood afternoon to breathe some fresh air and eat some fresh food. All the venders food and layout was nice and clean. I really enjoyed the variety of foods they offered.Some fruits and vegetables are seasonal. I was so disappointed I didn’t get to buy some cotton candy plums. My mouth was literally watering for some sweet fresh fruit.tbucgelli_5 I stumbled upon this one vendor and bought a pineapple passion fruit lemonade to bring my inside back to life lol. Not a big fan of passion fruit juice but surprisingly it was delicious.

Soooo as I sipped and searched for food, my boo daddy keep raving about this lady that had good burritos. Not a huge fan of burritos. But as a foodie, I could turn down a gourmet meal on the go.

#tBuchelli ‘Big Ass Burrito’

I was soooo hungry and tired from last night I just wanted to eat and go back to sleep. Soooo as I was about to pass out, we finally found #tBuchelli Gourmet Sausages! He ordered the ‘Big Ass Burrito’ and I had the Ortega sausage burritos with cheese. Bomb dot com. I wish I had filmed my reaction because the flavors just burst into your mouth. One flavor didn’t over power the other; it was the perfect balance. The texture of the sausage was authentically savory in flavor with a hint a spice. I don’t do spicy but when I tasted the big ass burrito is was also very good. I’m a fan. I’m a believer! Next time no extra cheese tho lol.
