Thanks. Hopefully one more person joins us to make it worth starting a new thread.

Since we are bringing in wine, any suggestions?

May I suggest bubbles? Bubbles go amazingly well with sushi. Demi-sec with the spicy stuff and Brut with the not spicy stuff. Mmmm... bubbles and uni.

Definitely an option, but we did sparklers there in November. So I am thinking of switching it up.

Justin is bringing a blanc de blanc and a Riesling. Maybe an interesting red? I have no idea what I'm bringing (a pitcher of hongkee punch?).

A demi sec, or late disgorged would be nice, anyone coming that has one?

Finally! An honest-to-goodness thread for this get-together!

Can someone transport some rainbow rolls, tekka maki, unagi nigiri and tamago nigiri down here for me? And maybe a pizza or two? I have champagne standing by...

Miya's does this fusion sushi. Not sure if what you request is on their menu.

Darlene - add a plus one for us. My daughter would like to join us.

What's it fused with?

Just checked the menu. I actually am surprised there is no unagi within the menu. Freshwater eel is quite tasty, and I think it's sustainable. *shrug*

Are you going to call this one as "official"? If so, it will be #7. (Just checking.)

Freshwater Eel is on the naughty list unfortunately... About the only thing I'm not cool with is that Bun like to use Tilapia in sashimi. That's just a no-no to me.
[And all the regulars already know that :P]

Everything I've had at Miya's has been great. I don't even bother to ask what it is, just eat. Really looking forward to this, I'm glad we're able to get such a nice turnout.

Merry Christmas.

And thank you. Since you were the one that got this started.

And, of course, many thanks to Darlene for pulling it together.

Glad to do it! I was looking forward to hanging out with Justin and Katie, and am so happy more are joining us! PB, woot servers are sucking and not letting me edit my first post, but I know your daughter is on the list

Just confirming... Is this event happening on December 30 or January 30? I thought is was December, but the thread title says January.

It's because the title comes up as Miya ampersand pound 39;s Sushi... (I can't even write the real characters because it won't post)
When you edit take out the bogus characters or just remove the whole title and it will work.

Justin - what style Reisling are you bringing? I have a nice set of Reislings from Anthony Road -- dry, semi-dry and semi-sweet, and I would like to bring one that will contrast with what you are bringing.

I will also have some of my ice wine for post dinner.

Jana 2008 Napa Old Vine (From Scott Harvey's Riesling pack on here some time ago)....I haven't had it yet, but I am almost certain it is dry, looking for info on it now.

EDIT: Consensus seems to put it some where between dry and off dry.

In transit to bradley airport, currently in baltimore waiting for my connection. No free wifi, and I don't know how to tether android (for free). Looking forward to tonight, not feeling 100%, but that's not stopping me.

Hope it goes smooth.

Darlene - can we add one more? My daughter's friend is here with us and would like to join us. BTW - my daughter's woot name is "chomes".

OK, I am bringing the following:
Anthony Road Dry Reiling from the Finger Lakes.
2008 Erath Pinot Gris
Mumm Blanc de Noirs (that apparently is not in CT.)
and ice-style Reisling from Chateau Polar Bear.

See you all tonight.

My goodness, we are going to have a lot of wine! I'll bring glasses again. Still waiting on fedex here, they usually come at 8 am, but not today. They are supposed to be here be 3.

Well, we don't need to open everything. I figured that one bottle of sparkly would barely cover 9, so now we can compare a blanc de blancs and a blanc de noirs.

The ice wine is resealable too.

App called 'PDANet'. It's wonderful. Requires a client download on the PC, though, but you should be able to get it via the phone, USB hookup to the PC and push it over there.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Wow, ok. I think I'm not going to bring any drinkage then and I'll either buy a pitcher or three of Hongkee Punch, or just chip in extra money towards food...

And ACK I better get moseying!

I'm bringing a Paeonia (sp?). Woot sent a lot of goodies, so i think we'll have a door prize raffle. And I'm good with enjoying some of your hongkee punch!
