Title: Official RMCB5 Holiday Party - Sushi at Casa Wong 12/09
Post by: 92UrS4 on November 17, 2004, 04:18:14 PM
Okay, so here it is, seems like our world famous party hoster aowhaus is offering to host the Holiday Party.  Here are his initial comments on the "theme":

Quote from: "aowhaus"

I'm thinking platters of assorted sushi and sashimi, gyozas (potstickers), veggie tempura, and Sapporo beer.
It's a Japanese theme, too bad we don't drive Japanese cars -- next time it will be German!

Feel free to bring your doggies, little Yuki needs some four legged friends.


I guess the nest step is to finalize a date, I know I got a little ahead of myself on the polling so I wont post one in this thread.  I think we were looking at Thursday the 9th of December.

Will be tough for me to make a weekday other than Thursdays or Mondays, I will try my hardest to make whatever date we choose, I love Sushi !!  We will see how Booker T does with more people the next few weeks, I don't want him starting any trouble  :P  hehe

I normally have plans on Wednesday nights.  Maybe I will just try to bring my crew that I get together with on that night.  Sounds like a mega cool theme though.  Wasabi is great!

I normally have plans with my buddy Brooks on Wednesdays.  He's from Wisconsin, so we always watch "That 70's Show" together.  

I'm sure he would understand.  He's not big into sushi, but I know Jen and I are!  Maybe we'll be able to make it.

Really?  The 8th?  I might be there!  What fun!

I'm scheduled to be working in CO Springs the 6th, 7th, and 8th.  I was going to post up to see if anyone wanted to GTG.

If I'm still working on the 8th, then I'll for sure be there and travel back on the 9th.  :D  If I finish on the 7th, then my employer will want me to travel back on the 8th. :(

HAHA! I believe the proper term here is 'gaijin'... but only if we were actually in Japan, or something...  ;)

I'd guess Wednesday the 8th is ok -- I would prefer to do it on a thursday, friday or saturday, but I'd guess many of you work on the weekends.

Any other dates other than the 8th to throw at?

8th, 9th or 10th would be ok with me. Like some others, the weekend is not good for me either.

I'll throw in my vote for the 8th.  I'll be out of town the 10th.

Let's make it the 9th, ok?
for some reason it gets really busy at my office the first half of the weekdays.

Closer towards the date we should take a headcount, and I'll order the sushi platters and prepare the rest of the food (I'm estimating $15 per person).  Other than that it's BYOS (bring your own sake/sapporo to share).

I will taking care of the food -- I just ask everyone to bring their favorite japanese beer and/or sake.

ok, so I got the "stuff", hehe - but only a small bottle (750ml instead of 1.8L) so we'll have to ration carefully so everyone can try it that wants to.

Oh well - the small bottle fits in the fridge better. :D

Are you still gonna do a new years bash at your place Alan?  If so, I am totally down for that.

Post by: coveredbytheblood on November 30, 2004, 10:17:11 AM
Chef Wong, I have a question.  What will some of the menu be featuring?  You see I am not really big on fish, and would still really like to come.  I had some tuna fish rolls once that were pretty good.  I am really big on wasabi, soy sauce, rice, and chicken.  Yuummmmmyyy.   8)

Post by: hotani on November 30, 2004, 10:20:17 AM
Sushi isn't all raw stuff so you should be fine if you don't mind rolls with stuff in them like avocado, cucumber and other various veggies. Probably won't be any chicken rolls! ;)
Title: Official RMCB5 Holiday Party - Sushi at Casa Wong 12/09
Post by: aowhaus on November 30, 2004, 02:18:45 PM
I'm getting a platter or assorted sushi, which will have some vegetarian and cooked stuff -- California rolls, cucumber rolls, unagi (BBQ eel), avacado rolls.

Other items on the menu:
- Various japanese rice crackers and snacks to munch on.
- Gyozas (meat and veggie filled pan fried dumplings, also known as potstickers).
- Edamame beans (yummy steamed snowpea-like soybeans which you crack open and eat the beans inside like peanuts, served cold).
- possibly tempura of some kind.
- miso soup.
- Soba noodle salad tossed with seaweed and crisp asian veggies in a light sesame and soy dressing.
- Green tea ice cream (imagine a rich and flavorful vanilla ice cream).

I'm hoping everyone will bring a japanese beverage of their choice.
Here are some suggestions:
Beer: Sapporo (it comes in a really cool faceted silver can), Kirin, Asahi
Sake: Sakes are often very expensive, especially if made in Japan.  There are a few sake producers in California or Oregon which make decent sakes which are reasonably priced -- my favorite is Momokawa which is sold in deep blue bottles.  They have a wide range of flavors from very dry, to softly flavored, to sweet.  My favorite is their Pearl Sake which is unfiltered and milky white with a very soft, smooth and sweet finish.

I will get a large bottle of plum wine, which is a sweet and fragrant rice wine.

Okay, Renee and I are in, she LOVES sushi, frankly I can't eat the stuff.

So don't take offense if I show up having already eaten.  I plan on bringin a rare Japanese beer called Coorsito ;)

I'm sure we can come up with some sort of Japanese Beer/Liquor and anything else you might need us to bring.
