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.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
