After seeing so many fun posts from other bloggers who went to Fashion’s Night Out festivities in their cities…I figured I’d put together a little post about what I did for FNO.
The plan was to meet up with fellow San Diegan’s, Carol and Kinzie, at Fashion Valley Mall. Equipped with my trusty camera, I was all ready for a night of fashion shows, drinks, and fashiony shenanigans.
An electric company employee ruined all our fun by mucking something up in Arizona, shutting off power to the entire city of San Diego. Fashion’s Night Out…cancelled.
The boyfriend and I reconvened at home, and upon realizing our stove is electric…discovered we had no way to cook dinner. Fearing our fate of popping open a can of beans and package of roast beef deli meat for dinner, we hopped in the car to see if any restaurants with generator power would take pity on us and feed us.
Here is our evening…in photos…
Power lines during a power-outage…that’s deep, man…
We almost gave up when we saw a bright light coming from a small shopping center. We made a quick turn hoping for the best.
It’s Jersey Mike’s! They drove a car up to their storefront to light their restaurant! And there’s people in there…eating food!
Miraculously, their grill still had power, so they were cooking up hot sandwiches for customers!
Fellow hungry San Diegan’s waiting in the headlights for delicious, cooked food. I’m guessing their stove is electric as well.
We ordered a cheesesteak sandwich and headed home to save Clinton, who was left home all alone in the dark while we searched for food.
We ate in the car to listen to the radio and charge our cell phones.
While Clinton watched creepily from the back seat.
Shortly after, we polished off a bottle of wine by candlelight before going to bed, entirely too early and sad that we missed our usual Thursday episodes of Project Runway and Jersey Shore.
