Texas Blue Bell ice cream, is it even possible to find it in Los Angeles ???

I heard about Blue Bell from my Texas friends. The closest place is Arizona or Las Vegas. In Feb2014, Blue Bell built a facility in Vegas and carried at Walmarts, Albertsons, Food 4 Less. I went to vegas Walmart near the strip and bought a gallon of ice cream. It was delicious and tasty. This article about blue bell in vegas

A "nice" Chinese dinner in the SGV

You can try Mission 261 for dinner. They make delicious stir fry lobster or crab, fish, and chow mein. Service is good. Kinda dead during weekdays for dinner, busy during weekends for wedding banquets. I second on Newport Seafood too.

Recs in Valley Blvd. Vicinity for Small Group - Narrow the Expansive Net

Newport Tan Cang Seafood Restaurant on Las Tunas in San Gabriel can accomodate 12-14 people. The food is excellent, such as french style beef, stir fry lobster or crab legs. The place can get crazy as people are waiting for a table during lunch or dinnner. I would get there early to get 2-3 tables. No reservations are required. First come First Serve.

Las Vegas Strip, shout out on buffets, let's hear them!

I go to Las vegas for buffets like 4-5 times a year too. So far, the wynn buffet always have long lines so be prepare to wait in line for 45 to one hour during weekends. Another favorite buffet is Planet hollywood buffet which has a very good buffet for breakfast or lunch or dinner. Sign up for their reward card and you will get coupons for $5.oo off of their buffet.

If you are driving to vegas, check out the new casino, M Resort which is off the the strip at Rose parkway and Las Vegas blvd. They have a good lunch buffet with complementary free unlimited beer and wine with your meal. They also have unlimited expresso bar in the dessert area too. I've been there on weekends and the lines are not that long of past reviews.

In addition, there are a few casinos that offer unlimited buffets like mandalay bay, mgm casino, excalibur, luxor. I've seen the signage at Mandalay bay, you can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner for price $35 for a day. That can really save you money if you are there for the weekend. Check out their website for information.

Lunch Choices in Woodland Hills/Warner Center area?

There are plenty of independent restaurants like Gorikee and Indian restaurant in the same Ralphs shopping center between ventura blvd and oxnard street. Also there is Pizza Cookery that makes very good sandwiches, pizzas, and salads in the Toysrus and Staples shopping center across from Citibank. In addition, there is family owned restaurant called Grandpa Freds BBQ between Desoto and Canoga Ave which makes very good ribs and bbq chicken sandwiches.

Place to buy Pure Cane Sugar Pepsi? Dr Pepper?

I've bought several Mexican Coke bottles from Super Walmart in Rosemead for 2 of $2. It's found under the cheap dvd's stands in the entertainment section. They actually taste better than coke cans.

Philippe's for Breakfast

They make the best cinnamon roll for $1.25 but they sell out really fast in the mornings. I also love their breakfast special for $6 with eggs, bacon or sausage, and french toast or pancakes.
