What a night

Last night, I took my son to Kim's Japanese steak house. We both love it but my wife and youngest son don't care for it so the two of us went alone. The problem with going there with only one or two people is that you get seated with people you don't know. This could be good or bad though but you are really at the mercy of the hostess.

We didn't do very well last night. We were seated between a seemingly nice couple and a family of 5 including three small children. When we first arrived, the small child beside me was crying and I almost asked for another table. We decided to ride it out though. He finally calmed down after his parents counted to three about a dozen times. Once he sat back down, I noticed he was sniffling and he began sneezing so I am sure I will get sick.

About two thirds of the way through dinner the nice man beside my son began coughing and sneezing too. It seems that he was allergic to shrimp and he was having an attack since his steak was cooked on the same surface as our shrimp. I am sure the 8 bottles of Sake didn't help much either. Anyway, he went out for some fresh air but still looked ill when he returned.

I just knew he was going to get sick there at the table and I kept looking for an escape route. I don't mind saying I am a mercy puker and If I see or hear someone getting sick I will join right in. My back was to the wall, literally so if he did get sick I was ready to mow down the sick child and his mother to my right and get the heck out. Thankfully he never did though so we made it through another dinning experience.

We have decided we want to take more people next time and fill up our own table. It is safer that way.

Next time, just tell the hostess seating you, you want seated with NO SMALL children. Kim's Japanese steak house, seems like a funny name for a steak house. When we visited our son in Fl one time, he took us, there were a total of six of us, to a Benny Hanas and it was fun watching them prepare the food right in front of us. By us having six in our group, we all sit on one side of the bar like seating. I can see if there were only two of you, you would have been penned in.

Sounds very intersting Greg.....I went to a Japanese restaurant years ago and it was quite a show...throwing knives up in the air, throwing these things with flames...the show was actually better than the food which was just ok. The price was outrageous.

OH my, I hope you don't get sick.

My hubby and I went to a Japanese Steakhouse for our Anniversary one year...and we were seated with 3 other couples that were celebrating too! It was kind of neat!
