    None on my end for the 8:30, for what it's worth. I'll be lucky if I can get to the hotel from the train station before 5PM, since my rental-plans fell through.

    Sounds good to me. Any disagreements, folks?

    7:00PM is during the keynote, which may effect some folks that want to go. Perhaps 5:00?

    I was thinking more like 7:00 PM at the latest, heh, so that you have time for the fish to settle down in your tummy before you give them a rich environment of alcohol in which to frolic.

    Has anyone ever gotten sushi delivered while in DC before? A quick Google turns up several places that say they deliver, but I'm not certain the quality that could be expected from deliveries.

    They're uncomfortable at first, but they're not that hard to get used to. It's either wear it, or die early from a heart attack because your heart never gets to rest while you sleep.
    'nuff said.

    to quote Trevor Corson, author of The Zen of Fish: The Story of Sushi, From Samurai to Supermarket,
    Fish that are too fresh have little flavor. Fish flesh needs time to age as the muscle proteins break down into the components that produce tastiness. For most of sushi’s existence, in the age before refrigeration, the chef’s skill lay not in acquiring the freshest fish but in the techniques he used to preserve the fish long enough for flavor to develop without the fish going bad.

    We want pictures .... I do the Ambient deal. Works well, non-addictive, and if I do snore I can claim amnesia.

    When it comes to sushi, I don't do east coast sushi; west coast yes. Something about east coast sushi, doesn't taste fresh. I acknowledge being crazy about this as I have no legitimate rational or exclamation for thinking this way.
