Home Town Buffet - Simi Valley

We have 2 HomeTown Buffets in Ventura County.  One HomeTown Buffet is in Oxnard, the other one is located in Simi Valley.

I like HomeTown Buffet, but I don't eat there as often.  Whenever I am at an all-you-can-eat restaurant, I tend to lose control and eat too much.

Today I went to Hometown Buffet at Simi Valley for lunch.  As I was eating, unusual amount of older folks started to walk in.  They were all talking to each other, so I guessed they are together.  There were a lot of people, about 30-40 of them. They all looked kind of folksy, and they were all older folks (60's and older).  They all seemed nice and cute.

I didn't think much of it and enjoyed my meal.

As I walk out from HomeTown Buffet, below is what I saw... a lot of classic cars.

It turned out that they come to HomeTown Buffet in Simi Valley every Friday and display their cars this way.  They use HomeTown Buffet as a club house of some sort.  They come in, chit chat, and enjoy meal for a while.

Photography: I took all these pictures with a Canon Powershot A series camera ($180.00).  Whenever I get the chance, I try to promote "Photography is a cheap hobby".  The Sun was setting fast.  I set my camera at 200ASA and photographed at shutter speed between 1/15 and 1/50. I didn't want to set my camera at 400ASA because cheap camera has its limitation.

There are 2 Hometown Buffets in Ventura County

Pumpkin Patch - Simi Valley

There is a famouse empty lot in Simi Valley at Los Angeles Avenue and Madera Road. Most of the time this place looks empty and useless.

But, this dirt ground is a huge part of Simi Valley. It holds various events such as carnival, pumpkin patch, Christmas tree sales, etc.. Their seasonal displays bring whimsical feeling to everyone. Simi Valley will not the same without this empty lot.

Jury duty at Simi Valley Courthouse.


I had a civic duty to do... a jury duty.

My juror badge, they made me to return it Frown

I thought I was going to Ventura Courthouse, but I was called to report to Simi Valley (East County Courthouse).  Ventura Courthouse has wireless Internet connection for notebook computer users.  East County Courthouse (Simi Valley Civic Center) does NOT have wireless Internet connection.  I was a little disappointed, but it's OK.

I gave respectable time when I left home, but I ended up arriving at Simi Valley Civic Center 10 minutes late

23 Freeway was under construction to expend the lanes. I see more progress every time I drive by.  On top of it, there was an auto accident to slow us down even more.

On my lunch time, I went to Borders in Simi Valley so I would get online and keep in touch with my work.

I took a few shots after the meeting.  This is one of the best looking Starbucks Coffees in Ventura County.

Simi Valley Costco - Best Hotdog


Costco hotdog is well known to be one of the best in the world.
Their pizza is really good also
There were a few occasions where I ate 2 hotdogs in one sitting.
Sometimes I ate 1 hotdog and 1 slice of combination pizza.
I'm 5'7", 150lb, medium frame, so 2 hotdogs are a lot.
I go to Oxnard Costco more often, because it’s close to Camarillo. These photographs were taken at Simi Valley Costco.

This is how I make my hotdog.
First, I put extra amount of onion.
Then I put relish.
Then ketchup.
Then mustard.
Then I get a cup of Diet Coke with a straw & no lid.
All for $1.50.
After finish eating, I top off my diet Coke and I put the lid on.

Marry Christmas~!

Simi Valley Town Center was open for Christmas Season of 2005.
This place is amazing. You must go there and shop.
You don't have to buy anything, just go and enjoy the view.
It's almost like Universal City Walk, except, people from Ventura County have class (no offence to LA people).

Marry Christmas, Ho! Ho! Ho! ~ On Dasher, On Dancer~~~~
