Recently, we dined out with friends at one of our favorite local spots. Chris and I used to think of this place as “our secret local spot” but thanks to good reviews on Yelp, the place is getting more crowded. I’m just glad that business is booming for them.

We love coming here because it has a casual and fun vibe in the restaurant. The food taste great and it’s a good place for dining with a group of friends.

…..and BeClaws it’s Good!

Even before we sat down at our table, we could already smell the garlic and seafood sauce. It definitely revved up our appetite.

We all opted to wear our bibs. Trust me, we all needed it. You’ll see why soon.

Cher and I have been training together for the half marathon and we have been spending our time mostly at parks and trails for our runs. It was great being together and not wearing our workout clothes and just spending the night eating and chatting about the upcoming holiday celebrations.

Just simply catching up on life.

Our friends Tom and Caroline joined us too. They are our Disneyland and travel buddies. It was great to share this place with them since they’ve never been at Claws.

We ordered appetizers and side dishes to share together.

We ordered a mix that included shrimp, sausage and corn.

Marinated in all sorts of herbs and sauce, lemon, garlic, paprika, hot sauce and etc.

Then it was time to eat and get our hands dirty.

I enjoyed a few servings of the shrimp with a side of steam vegetables.

Chris loves the sauce. He orders baguettes on the side so he can dip the bread into the mix.

I love these kind of dining experience with friends, where it’s low key and we just enjoy each other’s company.

Unless it’s date night, Chris and I are often found dining out and socializing with a group of friends.

We always have fun eating  out with our friends. However, when we have a big group, it becomes a challenge when the time comes to pay for dinner expenses. The hard part is figuring out the individual orders, calculating the tax + tip and designating someone to collect the method of payments.

So to make our dining experience more enjoyable and spend less time worrying about calculating the final bill, my friends and I signed up for an account with Serve by American Express. It helps make group dining experience easy and simple.

Serve is a new and efficient way to transfer money between friends, instantly via email or mobile device. It can help avoid the awkwardness of owing friends/buddies money.

One person can pick up the bill and their friends can use their smart phones to transfer money instantly and pay them back. . Transferring money is as easy as sending an email.

For more information or to sign up for an account, just visit Serve. You get $10 just for trying it.
