So L. was having a bad day a month or two back and I tried to lighten her mood by sending her this video, as I thought she might enjoy it...and boy howdy did she. Very quickly L. became quite the Macklemore fan, so much so that she went to slightly extraordinary lengths to find a way to see him/them perform live. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are definitely blowing up, so their Philly and NYC shows were long sold out...but their New Haven show was, at least at the time L. sought the tickets, not. So on Sunday after the craft show L. and I got into her car and drove the two hours to enjoy the sold out musical concert stylings of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Originally we were going to try Louie's Lunch, which claims to be the first maker of the 'hamburger sandwich.' Unfortunately they are closed on Sundays. Once this came to light I decided to do some research on sushi joints in the area because I had had a long-time hankering for sushi and thought this northerly jaunt would be the perfect excuse to fulfill that food impulse. Actually, I basically just asked L.'s friend S. for his recommendation, as he is from the area. And his suggestion was Akasaka. L. ordered gyoza to start and here they are.
