For my birthday party last Saturday, my friends treated me to dinner at Cafe Mums in Japantown. They have all-you-can-eat Shabu Shabu, as well as all-you-can-drink beer and sake, for about $20 more. So basically, best ever. The one thing that wasn’t as fun about dinner was that it had a very frat party-like clientele, something that was new for this visit. There were a couple other big parties who were loud and obnoxious, and one of them even told he waitress that they didn’t care we were waiting for their table, even though they’d been there for 3 hours. I blame Yelp for spreading the word to the Marina crowd. Despite that, it was a lot of fun, and certain members of our party had *extra* fun with the all-you-can-drink. So much extra fun, in fact, that some of the fun *spilled out* onto the sidewalk outside our apartment later that night.
After dinner we headed back to our new place which actually fit a good number of people without feeling crazy crowded, so that was pleasing. Amanda got me a train-shaped cake from Citizen Cake which was awesome and delicious. Awesomelicious.
My friends (who are awesome, by the way,) also got together and bought me an iPhone and some DS games! I picked up the iPhone on Sunday and I’m still trying to figure it out, but it sure is pretty.
Finally, congrats to Jan and Peter for being the future of videogames! I am apparently stuck in its past…
