Sushi, Shiner bock, Stories

So what do you get when you combine raw fish, a Shiner Bock and a Kirin Ichiban on draft, and two authors?

You get me and fellow 2k8er Stacy Nyikos having dinner at the Kona Grill here in Austin, TX. (Oops, sorry - I forgot to get a picture.)

Stacy's in town for a week of author visits. She was able to sneak away for an evening of dinner, so we headed to the posh new mall in Austin (The Domain - how Austin supports a Neiman Marcus, a Tiffany's, and a Louis Vuitton I still need to figure out. Actually, I think the city subsidized the new mall which may help explain). Regardless, the atmosphere was nice, and the food was great (we split Calamari and Sushi).

You can read more about Stacy's MG fantasy novel here. Dragon Wishes comes out this year also from Blooming Tree Press.
