Royal/T JustJenn Mother's Day Tea, May 8, 2011
Today, I took my friend Helen and her beautiful daughters Emily and Alison (here with the cosplay waitress) to Royal/T in Culver City. Royal/T had a sold-out Mother's Day tea and comic/cookbook signing by my good friend, the super talented JustJenn!!!

O.G. (Original Grandma) and JustJenn at the totally cute book signing table. I was excited to buy Jenn's new comic/cookbook featuring her adorable and witty 90-year old O.G.'s favorite recipes. You can get your own copy on JustJenn's website!

I ordered the Grilled Veggie Panini with sweet potato fries. Yum! And, of course, we ate some JustJenn Royal/T cupcakes!

We ended our lunch by taking some photos in the awesome photo booth at Royal T. It pops your head onto several different hairstyles! It was hilarious! Here is Helen with her set. One of mine looks makes me look like an Asian Valerie Bertinelli. Hilarious.

By the way, I took my mom and dad out to dinner last night... well, I must admit that despite my best efforts, my mom was able to get the check. I know, can you believe this? I'm 40 years old, employed, and my mom demands the check. She has stealth maneuvers! She makes direct eye contact with the wait staff and says, "Give me the check" BEFORE we even order the food. Sometimes she'll "go to the bathroom" and come back and the check is paid. Oy vey. 

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! - mary the food librarian

Your mom is the exact opposite of my mom! When the check comes, she usually turns to me and says, "you're getting this, right?" It happened last night.

Thanks for spending your day at Royal/T. The blog post was the icing on the milk tea cupcake--how amazing are those cupcakes?! Hope to see you again soon.

What a great time! The food looks amazing and I love the photo booth photos :) I'll have to check out JustJenn's book!

My mom does the same thing with the check. It's IMPOSSIBLE for me to take her out!
