What’s gucci my dudes (and dudettes)? After a three week hiatus, Micah Monday is back baby!
It was a big weekend for your boi. I went to Houston (stand up H-Tine) and went to The Big 3 season opener. It was lit! Next level people watching and some fun hoops. My J’s really stood out amongst a sea of other Jordans. Had to do it to ’em.
Played golf both Saturday and Sunday. There was some drama Sunday morning, as you can see below.

Eventually T-Man arrived (about 20 minutes late) and we got a nice, low round off. I even got my customary Saturday Swim, albeit on Sunday, over at the ole stompin’ grounds– The Poolhouse. Sunday evening, I put together some furniture and grilled some Asian-marinated pork with shishito peppers. It was a delight.
I know you’re not here for my weekend journal tho. You clicked on this story because of the fire headline and captivating featured image.
Yes, my friends, it is true, I do agree with President Donald Trump.
The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!

I too have a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!
And if a restaurant is dirty on the inside, I don’t want to eat the food it produces!
My brother Naynay and his gf move back to the mainland Wednesday. They’ve spent the last few years in Hawaii on the North Shore of Oahu. Why is this important? Because my brother, his gf, and my parents love a restaurant that is dirty inside and out. It is called Sunflower Restaurant.
Let me be clear, the food at Sunflower is tasty– consistently delicious, well-priced Vietnamese cuisine with an extensive menu. The problem is not the food or the price. I love a good hole-in-the-wall restaurant and I certainly appreciate ethnic cuisines and the restaurants that serve them. However, the service at Sunflower is at best inattentive and at worst, rude. In my view, the decor is dated, bizarre, and unwelcoming. Sunflower is far away from both my place and my parents’ home, and is a frustrating trek to get to in traffic. Worst of all, Sunflower is dirty. Strip mall restaurants often lack curb appeal–not necessarily a deal breaker, but this place is the worst. The child booster seats sit in the middle of an unkempt hallway leading to the filthy bathrooms. Germs everywhere! The door to the closet that holds cleaning supplies is always open, exposing the odor of bleach to the rest of the restaurant.
I have found only one inspection record online for Sunflower. Although 72 is a passing score, it is hardly a comforting grade. Especially considering the city considers a 69 a failure.
Overall, the dining experience at Sunflower is wholly unpleasant, and in my view, the worst in town. I will not be going there for any reason. If my brother got married there, I would skip straight to the reception. If my father wanted to host his funeral reception at Sunflower, I would opt-out.
So, inevitably this week when the gf and I catch a “welcome home” dinner invite to Sunflower, I will simply send a link to this article and politely decline. I, like the president live by a set of rules. And one of those rules is, that if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside! .
