Fat Tuesday Sushi Feast

The rain fell in sheets outside, as I squeezed my little sweetie goodbye. I was off for a girl's night....our own Fat Tuesday celebration of sorts.

We traded Mardi Gras beads for Japanese Kimonos. And rather than Gumbo and King Cake, we enjoyed a fabulous feast of sushi and chocolate fondue.  Instead of mingling amongst a crazy crowd, we tucked ourselves comfortably into a cozy private nook of the restaurant, perched on cushions around the traditional low table. 

We had a fabulous time. I enjoyed the girl talk, the laughs, and especially my special "Florence" sushi roll...snow crab and cucumber topped with spicy crab, tobiko & tempura flake. It was a delicious night, all around.
