in good company at sake bomb

i was definitely in good company thursday at sake bomb on erie. westender organized an evening of blogger frivolity. in attendance were get in mah belly, a dork and his pork, the nomerati, and 5chw4r7z, to name a few. beth and i both had a blast.

i did not eat much as i am battling this ridiculous cold (which is probably nosocomial pneumonia i picked up in a nursing home). what i really wanted was some warm, comforting soup, so i ordered the miso soup. it was not good. there was no flavor, except a vague fishiness. my impressions cannot be blamed on a congested head either; the other two of our party who ordered it also found it lacking.

despite illness, i am never one to turn down dessert. my fried cheesecake was good, not other-worldly, but it is difficult to flub any fried dessert. overall, i was unimpressed, but most people seemed to enjoy their food, so i may have to go back to try the sushi. one cool thing of note - the bar had this sweet inlaid copper colored decor. pretty nifty.

it was so fun meeting you guys too! tell beth i am sorry, i feel like i was rude to her. i recognized you and i glanced at her and was like "oh some westside foodie groupie." then when i finally realized who she was i felt bad. however maybe if she would ahem blog once in a while ahem we would not run into this kind of situation. hahaha

Anyhow, I'm glad I went and saw all you guys again.

liz - i wish i had groupies. they could do things like carry my camera and bring me the head of a pig on a platter, should i so desire.

5chw4r7z - it was great to see you again as well! you would be surprised at how much this girl can pack away given the opportunity ;)
