Thankfully my darling Levin saw fit to treat me to an amazing meal at umi this evening, followed by my treating him to a symphony performance featuring violinist Joshua Bell performing Corigliano's Red Violin concerto, conducted by Leonard Slatkin. We capped off the night at the wine bar in the Renaissance hotel, enraptured by a glass of fine Tokaji, a creme brulee sampler, and chocolate kahlua cake served by a darling chatty gay man in his 50's who regaled us with stories of walking around San Francisco's financial district when the Loma Prieta earthquake hit. Truly, life does not suck.
My mouth is already watering at the thought of more delicious raw salmony tunatastic deliciousness, and conveniently ziptie and I will be in Tokyo's Tsujiki fish market in just eighteen days. I doubt they'll be able to offer Tokaji in accompaniment, but something tells me we'll find other ways to satiate ourselves.
