Listening to: Footloose
Thought for the day: Bubba in Forrest Gump: Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it……………. Me: or you can hibachi grill it and fling it at someone’s mouth.
Wednesday Night Dinner Club – Sakura
One of my favorite things about eating at Sakura is the bonus shrimp. Regardless what you order (I ordered chicken), you always get two shrimp (today’s photo). It’s like bonus hockey (overtime) except with shrimp. There was a time when the hibachi grill cooks at Sakura would fling shrimp in the air and challenge someone at the table to catch it in their mouth. For some reason, they don’t fling shrimp anymore. They gently put it on each plate. What a bunch of bonus shrimp sissies. Maybe they knocked someone’s tooth out and had to stop. Come to think about it there is a lot to this bonus hockey/shrimp analogy. Speaking of hockey, my family informed me yesterday that I’m no longer allowed to be a Predator’s fan. So far this season, the Preds have been forced into three overtimes (bonus hockey) and lost all three games. I may be a jinx to the Preds, but I am not a bonus shrimp jinx. No one has ever lost an eye in my presence at a hibachi grill.
