    For our next big dinner (with or without SW Actors)? Their pricing is pretty straight forward and best of all there is no dress code...

    Oh, the foods pretty good too...

    Osaka is one of mine and my wife's favorites around Tulsa. Only been to Shogun once and had a mediocre experience, though I've heard good from other friends so it may deserve another chance. Shogun is typically much more crowded than Osaka mainly due to location.

    Any sushi people out there?

    oh lord not the sushi topic again...<runs away screaming> hehe


    I have been to Shogun's a few times. It was quite good. Not sure how it would work for a group such as ours though. we would end up sitting at multiple tables most likely. Long as this isn;t a problem then we are okay. But I do kinda like haveing everyone in the same general area. Otherwise I can't throw things at lisa :)

    LOL! Oh Ed, I knew you still liked me! I hope you got some sleep last night and are feeling a little better. I know I am.

    I LOVE sushi!!! That is much more my type of food. The type of food I was raised on. I was raised in Hawaii and didn't know what chicken fried steak was until I was a teenager. And I have never developed a liking for cfs. Meat and potatoes (and most southern food) isn't what I prefer. Plus, this way, Ed will have something to throw at me. 8-}. Mike1 keeps on saying he is going to take me to Fuji's, but he never gets around to it. :( Does anyone know what dim sum is? Mike1 does and he said there is only one place here in Tulsa that he knows of that serves it. Of course, he couldn't remember the name of the place. Any way, I am looking for a good place, like the Grand House in OKC. Let me know if you have heard of any places here in Tulsa.

    I never said i didn't like you. :)

    Isn't dim sum the pork meatball with shrimp in the middle wrapped in a dumplin of sorts? to americanize the foods anyway. Or is that dim suk....I can never keepit all straight

    I love Japanese food. Coming from Cali, they had lots of great restrants there. Here not so many. So i did what anyone would do... i married a woman who's grandma taught her how to cook like that. ^_^

    Mike2, how long did you live in Cali? What part are you from? I'm from Cali, as well. Smack dab in the middle from a city named Merced, right between Fresno and Modesto. I was born and raised there for 20 yrs.

    They are both really good but Osaka has a wait time from hell! I also agree w/ Ed about keeping everyone together in one area. I think Joe's Crab Shack could be a really fun experience for all. With this group we could really have a blast there & outstage the staff! They have a room in back (don't panic... there is no charge for it, and they can't sneak in any bottles of wine... flash back to Flavors)we just have to make reservations if it's over 10 attending. Just a suggestion!
    BTW this is Jammie! (OK Gary, you can pick yourself up off the floor once the shock wears off) Mike is still at work. Yep, I took the plunge & posted! Oh gosh, I can feel it... the dark side is calling :) Actually, it isn't a love of SW that tempts me to the board but the wonderful people in this group. I don't think I ever would've enjoyed this hobbie of Mike's if it wasn't for getting to meet you guys. Even though I'm not as knowledgable or passionate w/ SW as you all, you've made me feel a part of the group, thanks. (Guess it helps to be the Queen of Vader too, huh?)

    By the way, Zach swears by FUJI. He loves that place. Of course, to keep from going broke, he can only go there occasionally. You should see how much sushi that guy can eat!

    Oh god, not Fuji. The one time I went was the worst dinner of my life. Of course it was Armando's birthday party, so that may have had something to do with it..

    I think Joe's was pretty damn cool the last time I went. Crappy Service and too small a portions IMHO, but easily fixed the next time I go.

    Shoguns or Osakas is really good, but the seating could become an issue as Ed pointed out. I think the tables seat 10 or so. If you had less than 20 you could easily seat a group in a cirle of two tables with two chefs. That would be kinda cool. That is something I will have to look into.

    Jamie, Good to see you post. I'll have to see if Bree ever feels like popping in when shes online. She could check up on me and make sure I do not get into anymore trouble than I normally do ;)

    I only lived in Cali untill i was ten, but i remember everything about it and still consider it home. I was born in Simi Valley and lived in Moorepark with even more family in Thousand Oaks. God, i get home sick talking about it. *sighs* Fuji's does kick ass, we could probably go there, they have lots of places that are like seperate rooms too.

    There's this wonderful little place called Seven Seas at like 66th & Lewis. Nice selection of sushi and other chinese stir-fry type dishes. Very good. The Triple Delight and Four Seasons are exquisite. And the great thing is, there's never a wait. Hardly anyone knows about it. In fact, Valentine's Day was the only time it was packed.

    I also read in the Spot last Friday about Asahi's where if your party orders 3 sushi selections each, you get them half off. Wonderful way to try everything if you've never had anything before. They also have a few other entree selections if you just can't bring yourself to try sushi. Haven't been there yet, but the review was good. It's at 71st & Memorial behind TRU (close to Shogun anyway). I'm sure we'll be going there within a few days, so I can let y'all know how it is.

    *doesn't eat things that once lived in water* I hope that's a forgivable sin. (Obviously I was raised on beef, but I don't eat that much either.)

    Okay, I was told that I haven't been converted yet. And that I must await my impending conversion.

    This is BDK now. I just got home from work. Ya'll are talking my language here. Let me make a quick suggestion...

    Tokyo Garden is a great place and yes would be split between 2 tables but they would be in a square so we could still chat. They also have sushi for thise interested.

    Brent when you go to Asahi let me know...I'll tag along. The guys I work with went yesterday and walked out with a $12.oo tab a piece. They said it was great too. If any of you are familiar with Sushi you know that is an incredible price for 3 rolls. I'm up for anything although the Grand House in OKC sounds really good to me right now(not for our group dinner though). I'm up for anything as long as it is Oriental!!!

    Ah, yes, but cows don't LIVE in water. Do they, huh? They don't breathe under they water. I can tell ya what cows do in water, and it's not pretty.

    Oriental sounds lovely. I have to drive an hour to get to a decent restaurant. :( *sniff*

    I once cross bred a Cow with a goldfish. The results where interesting. It was basically a Gold Cow (thats copy written don't steal it or i'll sue your friggin' ass off) It was basicly a anphibian. It breathed air but could also breath under water for periods of time. Unfortunatly though i didn't get to taste it as it was eaten by my cross bred Sloth/Hippo. From what i understand it was a very slow, messy death. Poor Gold Cow.

    Mike2 has tapped into my worst nightmares. I must hide where I can't be found. *Runs away with plans to create a master race of Gold Cows for an evil plot to conquer the known world with animals who were once down trodden and defenseless.*

    Well, they weren't dead... and they were in person (in bovine?)... so, I'd say they were "Live! In a pond near you! Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Your ticket buys the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge! Cows Live in Water!" :)

    See what I did with the word live there? I changed the context and proved how clever I am. It's a... Crap, I can't remember what it's called when two words are spelled the same but have different meanings and pronounciations. So much for being clever. Anyone help a brother out here?

    Don't ask me, I'm just a creative writing major...


    *shoves on a pair of horn-rimmed glasses*
    I believe you are referring to the phenomenon known as the homonym. A word that is spelled the same, but pronounced differently, and has a different connotation. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I believe homonyms have similar sounds like there, their, and they're...

    This is something elsewhere - elusive...

    See that's what I mean, don't ask me, I'm a creative writing major. heeheehee

    I don't rember all the grammar stuff... the names, etc... I haven't studied it since junior high. (shhh... don't tell my professor) I just know how to use it.

    Oh my goodness! I am HOME! A man who uses the word "exquistie", a woman who knows weird words, another man who comes up with ideas about cross breading and clones and another woman who doesn't mind being part of the group even though she's not into SW, but here to have fun. How cool! I have been thinking about packing up and moving to Germany with my family, but you guys make it terribly difficult. Not that I couldn't keep track of you this way, but it would be different.

    Ed, I think it is spelled dim sum. I am not for sure though. It means "morning meal or bun". They typically have different kinds of meats in fried, steamed or boiled wraps. They also have different types of noodles, rice and veggies for the American version. I really love the some of the dishes at the Grand House. They remind me of Hawaii.

    Mike2-D2, I know what you mean about missing home. I lived in Hawaii for 10 years and moved to OK when I was 13. Boy, talk about culture shock!!! I sometimes dream of Hawaii and places that I use to hang out in. I went to visit a friend of mine who was stationed in Panama. I stepped off of the plane and felt like I was back home. The heat, humidity and tropical sun was just heaven. I cried I was so happy! Yes, me, I cried! Although, I sometimes blame my stay in Hawaii for being so different and liking different things. I haven't been able to "blend" in very well. I have a tendency to move towards different cultures, ideas, tastes and customs. Anything Asian makes me do a double take. A blond hair, blue eyed, boy next door will never do it for me. I am doomed. :)

    JAMIE! It's about damn time you started to post!!! Get your own sign on so you don't have to mess with that Dark Side sh!t! Stick with us girl and you will always have a good time.

    Boy, it's late. Gotta run. Sorry for any misspelled words or the rambling. Talk to you guys soon.

    Lisa,
    Your wish is my command! (Don't let this go to your head, it is a one time thing :) )I have my own sign in now! I'm official! I mean c'mon, I had to help even the odds up a little, the guys just pick on you way too much! It's starting to look a little better W/ Bree joining, you, Jenny, Kenzi, me & HOPEFULLY Deena SOON! We can really liven things up around here!
    Ed, if I of all people have now caught this bug, your girlfriend might not be too far off herself, don't count her out just yet :)I mean it's taken me a year & 1/2 to join in w/ Mike!
    Jammie
