"According to Kat"
1. Serbs don't know what Applebee's is
And you might not either unless you're from the USofA.
I watched The Dictator the other night at Usce. Yes, it was funny. I actually haven't seen any of his previous films, so I don't have a benchmark for comparison, but I enjoyed this one. There were a couple of parts that were just wrong, thought. Not politically incorrect wrong, just kinda gross wrong.
So there's this line in the movie that suggests that an American man who gives up on life wears Crocs and goes to Applebee's everyday. I laughed out loud at this line but the rest of the theater...crickets. Guess they have never experienced Applebee's, one of THE worst chain restaurants in America, strategically positioned in almost every suburb.
2. Belgrade is a 5th date kind of gal
I was chatting with a friend of mine who currently lives here but is from...let's just say somewhere in North America. She was sharing that a friend of hers wants to come for a visit and my friend was trying to convince her friend to meet up in another European city and then maybe just spend a day or two in Belgrade. But my friend's friend was insisting on just coming straight to Belgrade.
My friend explained her hesitation...she thinks that you can't really fall in love with Belgrade at first sight as you might with other European cities. But rather, Belgrade requires that you get to know her a little better, spend some quality time with her, get to know her heart. My kinda gal ;-)
3. Comunale rocks my world!
I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love the outdoor terraces at Iguana and Comunale. In fact, Iguana made it into last week's discoveries. But I haven't been giving Comunale its rightful praise. The last time I actually had a meal there was months ago and I was never really that impressed with the food, but apparently I was ordering wrong.
A friend of mine dines at Comunale all the time and raves about it so last night I decided to experience it her way. Her way included: the Antipasto Comunale to start and then we split the Buccatini Amatriciana and the Comunale Pizza (there were four of us, by the way).
Everything was delicious!! And I loved the fact that we were able to sit there for 3 hours and could've stayed even longer if we wanted to. They don't rush you AT ALL. Which could be frustrating if you ARE in a hurry, but thankfully, in our case, we weren't. We were there from about 6:00-9:00 and it was absolutely perfect to sit outside at this time...not too hot, not too chilly. It was so relaxing and lovely!
Oh yes, and because Comunale and Iguana are owned by the same people, you can order Iguana's desserts at Comunale. I mentioned last week how much I love Iguana's Chocolate Souffle, but last night we ordered the Sticky Date Pudding, which comes in at a close second. YUM!
4. 4Kings Party at Lava Bar tomorrow night
