I planned to hijack this month's date, for part of my birthday celebrations, as we continued our year of dates. I had been craving
sake sushi, so I thought that would be the perfect dinner out together.
Although cold sake is customarily higher quality, we went for some hot sake as it happened to be a blowing blizzard outside and we needed warmed up. It's also custom to NOT pour your own, so we played along and reminded each other when it was time for a refill. :)
When we were dating, we used to go out for sushi quite often, so it was fun to reminisce about that. It was entertaining to watch all the college-age kids (and younger), making good use of the all-you-can-eat option available at the restaurant; ah, how times have changed. ;) We didn't order anything too crazy, but enjoyed what we got, which included a crawfish volcano and a Colorado roll.
It was a great evening out together enjoying each other's company.
We ended the evening stopping by a very local spot for some live music and familiar faces.
