September 8, 2013: The party was subarashii!
September 8, 2013 by Joseph Mallozzi
Last night’s party was a success. Everything went as planned, the guests seemed pleased and, most important of all, I was NOT violently ill like that time I had a bunch of people over for home made ice cream, ate thirteen different flavors and ended up very sick. Less ice cream this time around but a lot more bourbon and hot dogs.
Akemi and Bubba get the bar ready.
Japadog parked right in front of the house, dispensing Japanese-themed hot dogs and fielding queries from curious/hungry passersby.
Megan and Tio, the first to arrive – presumably because they wanted first crack at the dogs.
My first of three hot dogs: a jalapeño-chesse stuffed beef smokie topped with Japanese mayo, fried onions, and seaweed.
My second hot dog was a kurobuta pork dog and the third, pictured above, was a turkey dog topped with kimchi.
Dessert #1: Pistachio cream cake.
Check out the multi layers.
And the carrot cake.
Akemi closes things down for the night.
A good time was had by all, especially the dogs who were the center of attention for most of the night.
Then, today, it was off to Rob’s for football and…
And cole slaw!
I am exhausted. And a little bummed as my Snow Monkeys look to be heading for a week one defeat – in both leagues. It’s a repeat of last year with my team putting up more points than almost every other team in the league – EXCEPT the team I happen to be playing.!
