Late night, date night
I'm so glad we did! That the food was excellent was not a surprise. I crave sushi anytime of the day or night and sushi from Happy Sumo is my favorite. Unsettled stomach or no, I downed my fair share of the 3 appetizers and 10 different rolls we ordered. But beyond the food, the company was stellar! We segregated, funny enough, with the sisters on one end and the brothers-in-law at the other...but there were only 6 of us so conversation was easy any way we wanted to spin it. Seeing as it was after 9:00 at night, we chose to sit outside. The sparkly lights making it just bright enough to see our menus, the outside temperatures delightfully comfortable and a fairly decent guitar player just a bit away playing background music...it was a perfect evening.
Melissa's comment summed up the experience nicely..."How nice not to feel like a Utah mom for an evening!" I laughed, because I'm sure she didn't mean to infer that being a Utah mom was a bad thing. Just that it was nice to step out of normal for a few hours.
