I went to the grocery store with my girlfriend and Tarik and we saw these delicious tuna steaks and fillets. We knew we just had to grill them.. yeah. We got home, and I started the coals and began marinating everything. It was a beautiful day, we all hung out, my girlfriend took pictures, and my brother Ben and our friend Mikey was there, too. It was great night with great friends and family. We ended up watching Toy Story 3 on BluRay.. Tarik slept.
This is fillet mignon and tuna steaks.

It's a Chinese food place in town. There isn't much to say about it. Its menu is pretty generic, although the quality of the food is top-notch. The crab rangoon served there is definitely notable, as is the lo mein, sweet and sour chicken special and, of course, the General Tso's chicken platter. I haven't had everything on the menu but everything I have had I've been more than satisfied with and I have full confidence in saying that whatever you get there, you'll enjoy. Nick also made it a point to make sure I mention something about how great the broccoli they serve is, no matter how it's prepared. Something I do need to state is that the restaurant's actual appearance isn't anything to write home about. Located next to a former Blockbuster, cigar shop, and Food Lion, it could most definitely be very easily overlooked and written off. Inside it's got two or three tables littered with a few folding chairs of different colors. You can see the kitchen and what they're doing in it, much like many other Chinese places. With the foreign food, however, comes familiar beverages with your choice of Coke or Pepsi products. Not much more is to be said about this place. A lot of the experience is just that: experience. It can't be fully explained in a blag post on the internet. To finish this post off, though, I'll leave you with a picture of a few dishes and sides you're able to order from this place.
Crab rangoon, chicken lo-mein, fried pork dumplings, beef broccoli.
Yea, also, I totally bought this wooden spoon there. Also available is an array of chopsticks.
