Long Beach

Spent a relaxing afternoon down in Manhattan Beach at Simmzy’s before exploring
Long Beach and watching the sun go down. Simmzy’s is quite the happening place, 
so after putting our name in, we wandered around the boutiques and built up our 
appetites for plenty of beer and burgers. Simmzy’s is casual and friendly with plenty 
of natural sunlight and the brussel sprouts, oh my. Did I mention the amazing
goodness that is the brussel sprouts here?
They have a solid selection of craft beer and frequently rotate their flight options so 
you’re never sure what you’re going to get. It’s a bit like a grab bag but better 
because it’s beer and beer is great. 
If all my vegetables tasted like these babies did, me and vegetables would be best friends.
Their brussels sprouts are a highlight of the menu and are roasted with tons of garlic 
(no making out after this).

The white pizza covered with broccoli rabe, dollops of feta cheese and red pepper flakes. 
This one was good but had me chasing it down with beer after every bite. Not for the 
weak of heart.

Animal friendly, black bean burger with haystack. Just look at that thick slab of
avocado! Absolutely delicious.

I know I grew up here in the Southern California area but I took so much of it for 
granted. It’s amazing how distance and time can really make you appreciate the 
things back home.

I felt a bit like Heidi with my braids, overlooking the view. If only I had a pair of goats
or some clogs. Or whatever it is Heidi had to appreciate sunsets on a blustery, spring day.
