Kobe Steakhouse at Westport - Restaurant Review

The food was good.  I am not a great fan of food from the hibachi but I do like the show.  The problem with Kobe is that one of the chef's was on his game and the other was horrible.  Our chef was the horrible one.  If we had been seated near the other chef's grill we would have had a great time.

I went with four other people and a member of our group tried shrimp for the first time.   He like it.  Tasty shrimp, I like to eat them to.  I got that Land and Sea.  Now this was by accident, they got to me and I hadn't been paying attention.  I read the first thing I saw on the menu.  Again, it was good but not a unique meal.  The drink made up for it though, they were strong and not too hard on the wallet.

My favorite tricks were the egg toss and the onion ring volcano train deal.  I can't touch an egg without breaking the thing.  I don't know how that guy flings it around with a steel spatula.  Amazing.  Kobe is a fun thing to do if you're making a night out at Westport.  We also ended up at the Funnybone and Train Wreck Saloon.  Cost for four at Kobe 120 dollars (2 alcoholic beverages), tickets to Funnybone 20 dollars, drinks for two at Funnybone 50 dollars (bucket of beer, three call drinks), drinks for 2 at Train Wreck 80 dollars.  I was in a group of four but two people didn't drink.  They got sodas or juice everywhere we went.  Value??  Totally worth it I had a lot of fun.

I didn't do this but a bonus is that you can use Priceline to bid for a room in the area if you want to have a hotel party.  Winning bid from 40 - 45 dollars.  You should get the Sheraton Westport Chalet, Doubletree or Marriott Courtyard.

Transformers Age of Extinction

I know I am supposed to write reviews about movies I have seen but in this case I am going to make an exception.   I hate Michael Bay because he is the destroyer of child hood memories.  I was so excited when I heard that this movie bombed over the 4th of July weekend.  Happy Birthday America, our gift, realizing Michael Bay is an asshole.

Then I read the horrible news.  The movie was save by the Chinese box offices.  Why?  Not only do we owe them our soul but they are using the interest to further destroy my precious child hood memories.  Please, China those sweet morsels I've retained from way back when are all I have left.  This is my campaign to stop Michael Bay.  Some one please translate this post to Chinese.  Let the Chinese know that my brain cannot comprehend the crappy rendition of American staples that Michael Bay calls art or artistic license.  My view on his work is that he poorly plagiarizes.
