Hello Hooters

Thursdays after work, a few guys from work and myself have been going for dinner and drinks. One week we went to Akasaka where we spotted Hooters. I was genuinely excited for the wings, and I believe my coworkers were more curious to see how Tokyo Hooters "stacked" against the rest. As we made our entrance past the cute Hello Kitty in the window wearing Hooters attire, we were shortly thereafter making our exit. Much to our disappointment, we couldn't get a table. Yes, you needed a reservation for Hooters on a Thursday night.

Instead, we salvaged the evening and walked down the street and picked a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant. Instead of chicken wings, we now had the option of chicken from around the diaphragm, which none of us braved ordering.

Tomorrow is already Thursday and I'm
anxious to see where we end up this week....always and adventure!

White Day

I think Japan's White Day may be one of my new favorites. After brining in the cupcakes last month for Valentines Day, I was showered with gifts today in reciprocation. I received all kinds of sweets and chocolates throughout the day.

My favorite treat was from a Japanese colleague, Tanabe-San, who gave me these too-pretty-to-eat chocolates made to resemble traditional Japanese fans.

I'm really glad Ashley and Bryce will be here Friday to help me devour it all. So excited for their week long visit over St. Patricia Day!
