i was definitely in good company thursday at sake bomb on erie. westender organized an evening of blogger frivolity. in attendance were get in mah belly, a dork and his pork, the nomerati, and 5chw4r7z, to name a few. beth and i both had a blast.
i did not eat much as i am battling this ridiculous cold (which is probably nosocomial pneumonia i picked up in a nursing home). what i really wanted was some warm, comforting soup, so i ordered the miso soup. it was not good. there was no flavor, except a vague fishiness. my impressions cannot be blamed on a congested head either; the other two of our party who ordered it also found it lacking.
despite illness, i am never one to turn down dessert. my fried cheesecake was good, not other-worldly, but it is difficult to flub any fried dessert. overall, i was unimpressed, but most people seemed to enjoy their food, so i may have to go back to try the sushi. one cool thing of note - the bar had this sweet inlaid copper colored decor. pretty nifty.
