Swanky Soiree.  A trendy modish place to eat amazingly fresh sushi and some really fun and extraordinary rolls.

This past Thursday I went to my first Dallas Cocktail Society meeting, which is a club that one of my girlfriends just started.  Basically, it's a way for us to give back to society by donating to a different charity each month, depending on the host, and with the addition of a few cocktails during the meeting it becomes a little more entertaining.  This meeting was held at Gloria’s on Greenville, which was having $0.25 Margaritas in celebration of their 25th Anniversary.  When you say $0.25 Margaritas anywhere in the Dallas Metroplex, you will draw a massive, and eventually unruly crowd.  We arrived at 6pm, and the place was jam packed like a can of sardines on the inside, but their were quite of few of us sipping on those ritas outside.  After, a policeman started to guard the entrance, not letting anyone in unless you had a Buzzer waiting for a table.  No ritas? No us! So we left and headed down the street to Blue Fish for some sushi. A much better decision for ravenous girls needing food in their slightly boozed stomachs. 

We were quickly sat outside on their wonderful people watching patio, and ordered a round of drinks, including 3 $2 large sakes.  Next, we started off with a couple of orders of Edamame; perfectly cooked and salted.  As for the sushi, the waiter began to spout off some of the special rolls; all he had to say was the word spicy and he had me on the Piñata roll.  I don’t really remember everything that was in it except for jalapeños and tuna.  All of the other ladies ordered different rolls such as the SoBe (Fresh salmon / crab stick / shrimp / avocado wrapped in cucumber / served with vinaigrette and masago), California  Avocado, Shrimp Tempura and the El Cubano (Spicy pork / jalapeño / cilantro / green pepper / carrot with sweet and spicy sauce) for the Meat and Potatoes girl, who also ordered the Chicken Teriyaki.  We definitely had more than plenty of food for the table, but we aren’t those types of girls who sit there and pick at their food, we are eaters, so it was devoured in no time.  Finally, we finished our sake, paid the check, and were out of there.  The rest of the ladies went for some post-dinner drinks, but I had the trek back to McKinney, so it was time for me to go home.  A great night with some great ladies!!
