Two notes
  1. Another Halo 2 night at my place tonight. Maybe MechAssault 2 if anyone wants to try it. Still up for it, runstaverun? redvector, bring Magic cards for petemagyar to look at. shmivejournal, did you get punched by KG?
  2. I've had a great run for food lately.
    • Thursday my fellow techies took me out for my birthday lunch, where I had sashimi.
    • Friday night jenniever took me out to my favorite place in the_boke, Sushi Lounge, where we had sashimi for two. Had some great coffee from La Isla while waiting. How awesome is the Sushi Lounge, they call your cell to let them know when they have a table ready? Introduced jenniever to mochi, and had a lovely evening.
    • Saturday, petemagyar took jenniever and I out to Maru before our party, where I had sashimi bibimbap, which I had never tried before. A wonderful dish with salad, rice, sashimi, and a spicy red sauce.
    • Sunday, in return for her cleaning up the place post-party, I treated jenniever to Satay, the amazing Malaysian place in the_boke. I got to have some more bubble tea, and a great tropical spicy chicken with mango and lime sauce.
    • Monday johnstevensaul had jenniever, ure_not_here, and I over for a lovely dinner party. Wonderful food, good times, nice conversation. It was great to finally see his new place.
    • Tuesday we went to Baja Fresh for lunch, introducing mrfantasy to the wonderful fresh life.
    I feel obligated to have amazing food now today as well.
Yay for streamlining processes.

Feeling: full full

Big hearts and stars for bubble tea

If you ever come to NYC, I'll treat you to really good bubble tea in Jersey City.

You're technically further than LaCrosse, WI, right?

Sounds rockin' and that's a lot of fish.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: January 19th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

There ain't nothin' wrong with consuming tons of fish

Well, except iodine poisoning and slimming my wallet, I guess.

Sweet merciful crap. I've never heard of the Sushi Lounge before, but you can bet your ass I'll be checking it out in the near future.

Whole Foods surprisingly makes some of the best sushi I've had. But that store's quality in general, so it's no real surprise.

But, but...

I've linked to it many times, dating back to my first year on LJ!

Live DJs there every night. Great sushi, fun atmosphere, decent bar... If they had Skyy, they would be perfect.

I wish I could join you for Halo2 night...unfortunately I do not have Live.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: January 19th, 2005 07:36 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Good god, sir!

You don't know what you're missing.

It's not worth owning many Xbox games unless you have Live.

I'll be lifting while Halo 2 is going on. If anyone wants, feel free to join me for that.

I mean, it's not really fun or awesome or anything. Nor is it in any way team or friend oriented. Well, I guess we could take turns or something.

My suggestion for awesome food continuation: aw hell, I have none. I'll make grilled cheese sandwiches and grits if you want 'em.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: January 19th, 2005 10:01 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Muenster grilled cheese sandwiches?

And to quote slave2tehtink:
Breakfast grits get sugar and butter, lunch or dinner grits get salt, pepper, and butter. Mmmmmm, grits. You can also pour them in a baking dish and bake the suckers til the top is golden brown, making "spoon bread." Grits are versatile!
Sounds yummy, eh?

I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to go to Halo 2 night. I'm still not. I'm tired, and I left my cards at home, which means going to JC, getting the cards, going to hoboken, walking 14 miles uphill in the snow, all to be ready to play by 7:30 and go home at 4 AM. oh man.

I'll see how I feel when I finish the go home and get cards part.

You don't need to bring the whine, someone brought wine to my party.

I jest.

If you feel up to coming, cool. We'd love to see you. If you don't, I understand.

runstaverun's feeling weak and wussing out due to snow. If you do the same, I'll forgive you as well.

You forgot to carry the one.

Never heard of bubble tea. Now that you have alerted me, I have to ask--is it worth sending away for the tapioca for the bottom bubbles? (Maybe the Good Food Store has them--but I doubt it.)

Bearcat's father warned us when we said we were moving to Montana, that Montana had no sushi. I guess that was his biggest caveat. Now it has several sushi restaurants, 2 in Missoula, not counting the Chinese buffets that make a little all-you-can-eat cheap sushi on the side. All we are lacking is the money to indulge!

It's an interesting drink. jenniever didn't like it, and windexcowboy's sister refers to it as the ``nasty drink'' that her Thai boyfriend likes. I think it's worth trying at least once, but I have odd tastes.

jenniever and I had sushi in Vermont last spring. Their menu had a whole page dedicated to explaining that their sushi wasn't going to be that bad despite being inland, as even places on the coast freeze their fish. It was an amusing page I should have taken a picture of.

And the sushi wasn't bad.

Speaking of all you can eat Chinese buffets that do cheap sushi on the side, do you remember the Mongolian BBQ that was in Avenel near Roy Rogers? He moved his restaurant to Millburn (a town near Drew) right before I started at Drew. I continued to eat there often through my college career, and he added all you can eat sushi and Chinese to his buffet.

i want to go to halo nights. it's good therapy for my hand.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: January 25th, 2005 04:32 am (UTC) (Hard link)

It's good therapy for more than that!
