Gluten-Free In Los Angeles: Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Bubba Gump 7Chaz wanted to walk to Universal City Walk from Dawn’s house. Totally doable walk, but I lacked the energy to walk the steep hills with all the up and down the stairs and driveway I did at Dawn’s in the days prior. Instead, we drove with the intent to walk around after having lunch.

Honolulu, please!

Honolulu, please!

It took us some time to decide on Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. because mobile reception was horrible and I couldn’t use my Find Me Gluten-Free App. This meant looking at what was available and going by what we knew. And we knew Bubba Gump has a dedicated gluten-free menu, having been to the one in Honolulu several  years ago when I was just gluten-free and dairy-free.

Bubba Gump 2I started with an Adult Root Beer Float (root beer float with rum). I figured after holding down the fort for seventy-two hours without anyone’s head catching on fire, I deserved it. Plus, it was like having dessert first and I like having dessert first. It makes me feel empowered.

Bubba Gump 4We strolled around, checking out stores here and there. I found myself a new coffee mug with different Hello Kitty faces all over it. Of course I found a lot more Hello Kitty things I wanted and convinced myself it was not a good idea. Besides, I wouldn’t have enough room in my suitcase.

Then I found this amazing Wonder Woman poster in the window of a comic book store as we left it. After some searching I discovered the artist is Ant Lucia and she did it as part of a series for QMx. I had every intention of ordering the print but talked myself out of it because I have nowhere to hang it. And prints like that shouldn’t be hidden away in a closet.

Bubba Gump 6To end the day out, we saw Lucy at the AMC Theater there since it was the only movie playing soon either of us had an interest in. If you ask me, I’m still not sure about the movie other than Luc Besson has done better.
