Toilet Tales: TwoKoi

STEPH DEROSA: THINKING ABOUT QUALITY >>>

The plan was to pick up a few of these infamous boxed lunches from Pacific Grill and bring them to my husband's work. My plan was foiled when the nice Pacific Grill phone answerer told me they are typically ordered 24 hours in advance. I immediately responded with an Excuse me?! Do you know who I AM!?

Ah, just kidding. I didn't say that. I thanked her politely and told her I'd call back later with an order for tomorrow's lunch. But, alas, I was totally craving that damned Pacific Grill lunch, and I had to curb my taste buds into some other flavor. I quickly realized that TwoKoi Japanese Restaurant was just around the corner, and they had some of the most mighty fine sushi I've ever tasted. So off I went. From sandwiches to sushi¬" in the famous coined words of Tim Gunn, I was going to make it work.

I placed my order for the sashimi bento box, bellied up to the bar, and ordered a beer to down before my meal was ready. Eventually my bladder was singing the sweet requests of a needed bathroom break, so the bathroom is where I went. A few small accents of potted orchids is all this bathroom needs to give you the feel of being at a sushi bar. While on the potty, I thought of TwoKoi's neighbor, Tacoma Art Supply.

And I thought about quality in my life. Check out my thoughts here.

Old man Flash rocks

BOBBLE TIKI: OLDER THAN FLASH BUT NOT AS KICK ASS >>>

Most of Bobble Tiki’s friends, many of them reclusive sorts who emerge from their dank, squalid apartments only to grab groceries and report for jury duty, aren’t really into their birthdays that much.  Bobble Tiki hangs out with them one day, doing very little of consequence, and he finds out a week later, by accident, that it was their birthday, and all Bobble Tiki did to celebrate it was watch some court show on television. Honestly, Bobble Tiki doesn’t understand these people. 

Flash, the man behind Hell’s Kitchen’s genius and stability, is turning 40. The hell to keeping it secret. Flash has titled a killer rock show the “Flash’s 40th Birthday” show. Everyone bring him a case of Diet Coke and go rock your face off to The Dehumanizers, Mos Generator, South 11th, Mico De Noche, Toe Tag, Artimus Maximus, and Star Spangled Bastards Saturday night.

Happy Birthday Flash.

[Hell’s Kitchen, Saturday, Oct. 4, 8 p.m., $8 at TicketWeb, 3829 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.759.6003]

Oh, by the way, it’s Tightwad Tuesday tonight at Hell’s Kitchen. Enjoy two tacos for $2, any beer for $2, well drinks, yup, $2 â€" at 5 p.m.

Misswasilla1984_3 Even India is talking about whether John McCain should replace Sarah Palin with a new vice presidential pick.

But, then again, we might have to put on the Mitt.
