The Bubba Gump Shrimp : The Love of Shrimp

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant and Market is a chain of seafood restaurants inspired by the 1994 film Forrest Gump.

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant and Market is a chain of seafood restaurants inspired by the 1994 film Forrest Gump.

Located just above The Gourmet House at the Curve, the restaurant occupies two floors, with a souvenir shop at the side. Loads of Forrest Gump memorabilia is displayed on the walls, tables and everywhere else. For those who have never seen the movie, the television at the bar will keep replaying the iconic movie until you’re sick of the phrase, “life is just like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.”

To make your dining experience a little unique, there’s a few rules here. For instance, you get two signs on the table; a red one that says, “Stop, Forrest, Stop” and a blue one, which says “Run, Forrest, Run”. Depending on which plate you display, the wait staff will respond accordingly. On the table, you get a metal bucket with condiments and there’s a ping pong bat with a menu. I found the ping pong bat amusing, since they attached a long thin chain to keep it from “walking away”.

There are loads of different drinks – cocktails and mocktails. Some of the cocktails even come with a glass (with Bubba Gump’s logo) that you can take home as a memento. Brother favorite was the cocktails. It taste really nice.

Overall, my impression of Bubba Gump has been it is a good place to hang out with friends and chit chat.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

    My Pinhole F Cardboard Camera Inspired By the Diana F+ Camera

    I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
