This one is for the ladies...okay not just the ladies

It was girl's night out last night. So far, that usually means a group of at least 8, half of which I don't usually know - but who really cares when the restaurant you are dining at has this hanging from the ceiling? With lights for the holidays no less! My friend Tracey, from Australia, made a reservation for 12, but 2 had to cancel. She tried to change the reservation that morning and they wouldn't let her, they said she would have to pay the set menu price for them. Then one other woman had to back out, so of course she had to pay as well. Funny thing was they still brought out 12 of everything! 12 bowls of soup, 12 servings of food, 12 bowls of almond jelly for dessert (no thank you) even 12 glasses at the start for our beers. This continued throughout the evening until our time apparently was up at about 10PM when they basically told us we had to leave and began to take away our partially consumed glasses of beer. The Japanese have their rules for a reason. It seemed so absurd I could hardly be upset. Of course on the way out I was the only one who had to take a picture of the Golden Penis.

Oh, that what it is. I thought it was an asparagus sculpture. Thats just how I think :) j/k

What would have happened if all of you had cancelled or not shown up? Did you have to leave a cc deposit for the reservation? hmm.

My friend, Chris, who lived in Japan in High School had all these pictures of a penis parade in Tokyo. I think it was a fertility festival and everyone had these huge penis floats and balloons. Can't wait to see b's pics of that!
