It is always an interesting experience to observe a group of people and how they interact with each other when you are an outsider. I really have been trying to make new friends. I think the older you get the harder that becomes. Since I work alone and out of my house, I am isolated. Any opportunity to go out and socialize, I will except. All of Oz's friends were lovely and it was a great time.
One of Ian's friends had a gift card for Uchiko that he gifted to us- so we had some really tasty sushi! I love the decor at both Uchiko and Uchi. The designer of both restaurants and other cool locales around Austin such as The Highball and The Belmont is Joel Mozersky, whom I have known for years. I used to work with his boyfriend at Uncommon Objects back in the day. He is nationally known as a modern interior designer. I have posted a few photos of his work here for you to enjoy.
