So do we..... 4. Sushi Catering For Yer Party ========================================================== 1. New Sushi Bar Alerts....zzzzzzz Yeah, yeah, yeah. More sushi bars.
Sushi, like video games and booze, is immune to fluctuations in the local economy. I'm keenly aware of this fact because I'm still playing Team Fortress, drinking strawberry margaritas, and eating sushi despite the local economy's rapid descent into the toilet. I blame technology for my lack of motivation. Or rather, I harness technology to encourage my sluggishness. Either way, I donšt even have to get out of my slouching position in front of the TV to write this 'cause the Austin Sushi Forums are abuzz with all the dirt on sushi in Austin...... Tanoshii is now open in Round Rock, right across from the Dell Computer campus on Louis Henna Blvd. Check out one visitor's review in the forums. Uchi will be opening on Monday, May 19th, or so says the recording on their answering machine. Uchi partner Mike Capochiano gives us some background info in the forums. Check it out....

They've located a new instructor and it's none other than Tim Thomas of Origami (one of our faves here at austinsushi.com). He teaches his first class on July 17, and ...... it's not sold out yet. Hard to believe... http://www.centralmarket.com/cm/cmClasses-A_NL.jsp ========================================================== 3. Love Seafood? So do we..... The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program helps people choose seafoods that are "good for you and good for the oceans". You can download their free seafood card that lists regional seafoods and when to avoid them. Only their "West Coast" regional card is currently available, but it's still useful for Texas. http://www.mbayaq.org/cr/seafoodwatch.asp Their pitch: "Love seafood, so do we. And we like to know that it's caught or farmed in ways that support a healthy environment. Sadly, some of our favorite fish are disappearing. But other great seafoods are doing fine. Your choice CAN make a difference! Our Seafood Card can help you choose seafood that's good for you and good for the oceans." ========================================================== 4.
