while the bean's beloved grandparents were still in town for graduation, we got to spend a day with them going to some of their most favorite spots in southern california. first up: a meal at the crab cooker in newport beach.
we hadn't been here in several years - partly due to covid and partly because they were closed for a good bit of time for some much-needed remodeling. we were pretty amazed when we walked in and saw all of the changes.
we were also a little bummed to see that some of the items on the menu that we'd been looking forward to were gone, but that's okay. i still got my shrimp cocktail and the grilled shrimp on a skewer.
it was a sweet way to end our day together. get it? sweet.
