Being told I need a Night out....

I had the best night. I was so in need of a relaxing night out, and I did not even realize it until I had experienced tonight. Cliff called me at the end of the day and asked if we wanted to do dinner with him and Lisa at Crave, a newer Japanese place in Dearborn. I parked there last time we were in Dearborn at La Shish, so I knew just where it was. And you don't have to talk me into Japanese for dinner. Anyway, met them there at 7:00 p.m., table was ready, no wait. Yay. The place was beautiful. Very "New York, Miami, Chicago" vibe. The decor was very minimal, very Starck. The place was also nonsmoking, which I also support 100%. They do have a nice area outside for smokers to participate in the art of slowly killing themselves.....I actually had a drink tonight. It was great. The place had an extensive martini/saketini menu, and I had one called a Strawberry Guava Saketini. Heavenly. For dinner, I had this spicy shrimp meal which was literally the best meal I have ever had at a Japanese restaurant. Everything I could have wanted in a meal. Plate presentation was superb, and the food was to die for. We also all split a California Tempura platter, and Lisa MADE me try this other app called "dancing eel". I was a little bit leery of the eel, but it was actually very good sushi. Not better than my normal favs, but good anyway. Kurt loved his food too, he had some kind of salmon meal that looked amazing. We stayed after dinner and talked for quite a while........Cliff and Lisa have made a final decision to get married in Maui. They were going to go to Bora Bora, but changed their minds because of the difficulty of obtaining a marriage license there. They are pulling a "Kurt and Lori" and basically eloping there, turning it into a honeymoon as well. I am really happy for them, they are so perfect for eachother. Anyway, it was a perfect evening. We normally do not go out on Friday nights because we are exhausted, but I am so glad we broke the rules and went out tonight. I cannot WAIT to go back and eat there. It was the best, by far, Japanese meal I have ever had.
