Fun night!

We had pau hana cocktails with the girls from StudioRim Hawaii last night at Imanas Tei, a great izakaya restaurant near Puck’s Alley.  That was the first time I’ve gone there, and I thought the food, drink, and ambience were great!  We talked about the upcoming shows in Sapporo and some of the fun things that we were going to do up there.  Thanks Reiko, Sarah, and Hiroko for putting up with our boyish charms :-), and mahalo for the nice bottle of Kubota nihon-shu!

I received some really cool MDNA blogs from our good friend, Yutaka, who posted them on his MaunaluaJapan website.  If you have a chance, go check it out!  My favorite pic is the one taken at Lulu’s of Misa dressed up as Meg from “Family Guy” … totally funny!!  Thank you, Yutaka … you da best!

Alllrighteee then … now I have to get ready for a 10am meeting at my office and then it’s off to do battle with my golf buddies at Waialae!  Wish me luck!

Aloha, Lloy”D”
