The Rising Sun lives to dawn another day! A week ago, we celebrated Felix’s birthday party at Dashi’s in Menlo Park, a Japanese restaurant that was highly regarded on Yelp! Johnny, Felix’s brother, brought Felix early to the semi-surprise dinner, though we suspect Felix knew beforehand of the impending party. The whole gang was there, and we gorged on yummy sushi rolls while watching Felix down special drinks made by the Dashi proprietors. Kevin dared Felix over a beer to eat an entire wasabi ball, and Felix complied. I remember one of the DVF Fellows from Kenya once though wasabi was green ice cream. I think I’d choke eating that much wasabi!

Following dinner, we headed back to Daniel’s house, where was watched the De La Hoya/Pacquaio fight on Pay-Per-View. It was like the Hatfields and the McCoys between Osvaldo and Sheryl and Dan G and Juliana. In the end, the “Mexicutioner” Manny Pacquaio won a decisive victory over the aging De La Hoya.
Cake and Rock Band 2 soon followed, with Johnny atoning for bringing Felix early to the party by having the XBox 360 ready and waiting. I even got into the act, playing guitar on one song… albeit on Easy mode. Johnny apparently only plays on Expert level.
