Aaaaanndd that's the last thing I remember. Just kidding. I'll write a separate review of Doraku, but suffice it to say we had a lot of sushi. We also drank two large bottles of Sake. There were five of us that went (my two roommates, a guy who lives upstairs that we just met, and another guy my roommate Alan knew). Overall, dinner was amazing and we had a really good time. The craziest thing was Alan paid for the entire meal...for all of us. I suppose dinner always tastes a lot better when someone else buys.
The night wasn't over, though. From there, we went to Top of Waikiki, which is a revolving restaurant overlooking Waikiki. They have happy hour from 5-7 and then again from 9-11. It was about 9:45 when we got there, so we all ordered the gayest Martinis ever. Yep, five guys sitting together ordering pomegranate martinis with sugar on the rim. James Bond would cry. For anyone interested, though, all martinis are $4 during happy hour.

What's bottle service? It's where we got a full bottle of Kettle One vodka, unlimited mixers, and a private corner booth in the club. I don't remember the name of the club, but having bottle service definitely made the night more tolerable. Of course, it might have had something to do with the fact that I didn't spend a dime the entire night. So that was my Saturday.
UPDATE (1/25/11) - The name of the Club was Crazy Box, located at the Edition Hotel
Sunday a group of people from work went to my co-worker's pool side Cabana and watched football and grilled all day. My co-worker "Joe" is the one I usually go surfing with. His apartment is awesome. One of the reasons is that on the 7th floor, there is a pool deck with 5 individual cabanas. Each cabana has a cable hookup, grill, ice chest, and tables/chairs. We brought down his flat screen TV, everybody brought food, and we just ate, watched football, and hung out by the pool.
The celebration didn't stop there, though. My judge is a huge Green Bay Packers fan. Yes, for all my Chicago readers, I'm sorry you had to read that. However, his being a Packer fan has directly benefited me. When they beat the Eagles, he gave us a half-day from work. When they beat the Falcons, he took us to lunch. When they beat the Bears, he brought in cheese danish, bagels, and ham & cheese croissants AND gave us a half-day. We're predicting new cars if the Packers win the Super Bowl.
