I’m not afraid of a little hot cock either…

Nope, not gun-shy at all about wrapping my mouth around one of those big, fat… lobster rolls. ;)

Animal is one of my favorite restaurants in LA and so I’m beyond excited to try Son of a Gun. And you’re one of the only blogs with such amazing pictures of so many menu items. Definitely featuring your site on my blog announcing the opening…
