Dinner and Drinks with a friend


Earlier tonight I got a chance to get to know a new friend better and try some new food. We went to a place called Sushi Japan. While I tend to not be adventurous when it comes to my food, I am glad I tried some new things. And sorry CJ, I didn't try your sushi. I just thought you might enjoy it better than me! And T, wish you could have came to enjoy it too!

Things I learned tonight: How to use chop sticks (even though I was unsuccessful), and that ginger is used to clean your palate (tongue) between different foods. Interesting fact....hmmm, will have to remember that..lol

When I was way younger, I nannied in Connecticut. I loved the east coast. I hung out with a group of nannies. Our Sunday night ritual included trying a new restaurant each week. You should have seen what we did on Friday night..lol. If you know of a good place to eat...leave a comment. I have always wanted to go the Upstream Brewery! Let me know what you think of that place. Gee maybe I should see about getting some discounts since I am name dropping.

If you can't laugh, what's the fucking point!

Try using the alphabet when trying new places to go.

Great Idea! So have you been anywhere new that begins with the letter A? lol That really sounds bad, doesn't it!

I can't do sushi. I tried it once because EX is addicted to it. The waitress jumped back about 3 feet as I start to gag, with tears flowing down my cheeks and apparently a look of sheer terror on my green face. I didn't yack, but I was damn close. Since then, I try to stay away from any place that serves that nasty stuff.

Very good...have been there along time ago. It was pretty good. Didn't it burn down though? I could have sworn there was a fire. Oh well...this could be a new game...the next person needs to come up with another restaurant that starts with the letter B...lol.

I will start Big Fred's! I worked there in high school. They got yummy pizza, but make sure to skip the anchovies!

hmmmmmm... inquiring minds want to know what you're referring to in your last posting... hmmmm.. just kidding with you, hun. T, you, and I will have to check out the Upstream sometime, or somethin, since he skipped out with the sushi. lol.

B&G's on 78th or 80th and Dodge. As for the Upstream, its a quality establishment and can be a lot of fun. And Big Fred's is one of my favorite places. So are we on to C yet? Chuck E Cheese's baby!

Oh, and since we're on C now Sammi, why is it women complain about that stuff but you never hear a man complain about hers running down his chin?

Oh Camp....you know we secretly love it! But instead of your barf and gag....how about Brazenhead? It is a great Irish pub with a patio outside...however I do have to mention that when I went there last year..there was a huge ass fly in my salad! Otherwise...I will give you Chucky Cheese.....Now on to D...How about Dave and Busters? Not only do you get food and drinks, you can relieve your childhood by playing all the games!

For D I was going to suggest Dragon Cafe (chinese). Its in Brentwood square sort of hidden unless you drive by on Giles. I sadly haven't been to dave and buster's yet but I hear its really fun. And I've never heard of Brazenhead so I'll have to think if it next time I go out. Ok, for E, whatcha got? How about the 11-worth cafe? Its a dive, but its good. I used to go there a lot when my brother worked for Douglas County Corrections just up the street. And ok, technically doesn't start with E, but sounds like it. And if you won't give it to me, then I have nothing for E.

OK..I consulted the Dex Yellow Pages and even though 11-worth is not spelled with an E in the title, it is still listed under the E's. So camp you get that one! Now moving on to F...my favorite restaurant--Farmer Browns in Waterloo! What a minute...should I be choosing places I haven't been? If that is the case I would choose Fernando's. Always wanted to go there, but never took the time.

On to G....

Well back to F for a sec, the Fremont Dinner Train, only because I worked on it when it was in Council Bluffs in the late 80's and called Pathfinder. Or if you want a little known place, Frankie and Phil's. Very small, crap for air conditioning, but good food. Ok, G... The Greek Islands.

Its H to you.

Well since we are using names of places we have been...what about Harr's? Even though the twins are no longer alive, that place has some good prime rib! And camp you worked on the Fremont Dinner Train? I always wanted to do the mystery dinner trains they had!

Oh is it fair that I am using the yellow pages? lol

Can you imagine us on a road trip with the letter game? Do you remember doing that with licence plates and signs? Well at least we wouldn't be bored!

"I" look forward to your response....I know..that was lame!

Ok, I'll admit I couldn't think of anything for I. So I asked a co-worker and he said IHOP. That was all we could think of. So then I broke out the phone book (you cheated first!). Indian Oven. Really good food.

On to J... Jaipur. Also Indian and also very good.

I get the shits just thinking about Indian Food (Along Came Polly). But the IHOP is a good one.

So K.....Kobe Steakhouse...great food, fun atmosphere! Just watch out for the flying food.

For L, one of my absolute favorites... Lo Sole Mio.

I can't believe I totally brain farted on this one....my ultimate favorite place....Mister C's! If you have never been there...you have got to go! Great place to take that someone special...but bring plenty of cash!

'N'ext...

Netties? Never heard of it. What kind of food do they serve? Sounds like a small dinner. On to O. OLIVE GARDEN! mmmm yummy!

Netties is an old Mexican place in south omaha. Really spicy. Too spicy sometimes.

Olive Garden isn't too bad.

For P... hmmm.... Panera. Or PF Chang's but thats not great.

Its Q to you.

We are coming full circle here.....Upstream Brewery! The one place I do want to go to....thinking of going Tuesday...will be in Omaha that day. But will I look dorky eating alone? Never done that, but hey...went to my first movie alone a few months ago. I will just keep chanting, "I think I can, I think I can" that way instead of looking goofy for being alone, people will think I am crazy! lol
