Busy day at the home office today. Contracts to write-up, projects to wrap-up and others to get underway.

Tonight I'm chillin out at MF Buckhead (local sushi joint and Arobase Group client) with some friends, Sheri, Julie, Nellie & Ashley. Going to enjoy myself some sushi, saki, and beer. Here a bit early so I'm hanging at the bar chatting up Chris, one of the owners. Pretty impressive place... I always frequent the MF in downtown, so heading out into Buckhead territory is not something, I do if ever.

My friends arrive.

So I've been to MF a lot... I know how prices are. However tonight, some were shocked to see that we had drank (2) bottles of saki... no big deal right... well they were $150 each... which is something I knew was totally possible at this place. Not that this was any issue... Uncle Tom had money to throw at a problem and so did Aunt Sheri... but it was funny to hear the whole table squeal in disgust at the lack of information concerning the matter. And I have to agree/disagree with them... AGREE: When a waitress tells you they have a special bottle of something they are offering... normally it's some sort of deal. DISAGREE: Normally they'd tell you, "Well sir thats $150 per bottle"... haven't ever seen that... I've been out to dinners with friends, family, and dear god clients a good bit myself and have been put in a number of situations with 'over-priced' bottles of ... let's call it 'smiles for all', but I've never freaked out.... just paid the man my bill. But I must agree... it would be nice for some person of knowing to say... "Hey that's $150 a bottle". Sure it would be nice, but as the consumer that's your responsibility, not the seller. Drink it ya buy it. Speaking of which I have a half bootle sitting in front of me now and no one to drink it with... what ever happened to that pretty little better-half I used to date in the past... she was a good little saki partner in crime... ohh well.

The night was still fun... and the food was great as usual for MF. I was surprised to see that the menu between it and Midtown differ... which was a nice change... made me ponder my choices. The other surprise being the poor fool who was tossing his guts in front of me as I made my way to the rest room. Yikes.. poor fellow. Looks like he had eaten 10 quarter pounders with cheese before he he sprayed that mess. Ohh well, it happens to the best of us, hopefully he did it before his glorious meal at the alway great MF Sushi. Maybe he's on one of those new-fangled diets I keep hearing about.
