Hamilton, smoothies & sushi

On our second day up north, our main plan of the day.night was to see Hamilton: An American Musical. I bought the tickets last December as a birthday present for Chris.

In the morning, we had originally planned on checking out Kennedy Groves, which was a small park close to the Airbnb we had stayed at; however, after waking up rather later than planned, we ended up driving to Tropical Smoothie Cafe in Pinole.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe
Chris and I both got the Hawaiian BBQ Flatbread with the Bahama Mama (strawberry, pineapple, white chocolate & coconut – major yum!). Their food was really good and the prices were very affordable. I’m so bummed there isn’t a closer branch to me back home 🙁

Sushi Go
Before leaving for Hamilton, Chris and I stopped by Sushi Go for an early dinner. We originally planned on dining closer to the theatre, but the parking pass we bought wasn’t available until an hour before the show. With that, we chose to eat local instead.

We found Sushi Go through Yelp. Their menu is a lot smaller than most sushi places, but mostly because it’s theme is sushi-on-the-go.

Orpheum Theatre
After dinner, we made our way to the Orpheum Theatre for the show. If you saw my previous post, you would already know that Chris proposed before the show! The show was AMAZING. Words can’t even describe how ecstatic we were to finally see it live after almost two years of waiting. If you like the theatre, Hamilton is a must-watch!!!

    The Bahama Mama sounds delicious! Even though there isn't a Tropical Smoothie Cafe in SoCal, at least there are other good places ;). You can never go wrong with sushi!!! I like how you gave Chris tickets to the show and he gave you a ring at the show. Glad you had a great first day!

    The Bahama Mama does sound really good! There's a Tropical Smoothie Cafe near me, but I've never been! After reading this, I'll have to give it a try.

    Sounds like a wonderful day. Congrats again! Still haven't seen Hamilton. It's not coming to Las Vegas until the end of May 2018. Love the picture of you two lovebirds!

    You should definitely give it a try! They're not too expensive either.
