Family (or friends), good food, great conversation – my mantra. This was dinner last night at the local Japanese restaurant, Nishi – “local” meaning less than 10 minutes away. My brother Marvin’s friend is a cook there and we usually get up-sized free of charge. Not that we go for just that, the food *is* good. If you know it and you are in the area, must try their Teppanyaki Beef. Yum.
