Of course The Nevius Incident is still fresh in people’s minds, but the healing has begun.

Bonus: The super-long lines are gone.

NB: You see, CW Nevius? There IS a sign out front. It says Tekka.

But don’t laugh, they control the fish supply at your favorite sushi place, I’m srsly.

*Or fish, maybe that works too.

What Kind of Crack Does Sushirrito Put In Its Namesake Products to Produce Insanely Long Lines Every Day?

Friday, January 28th, 2011

ZOMG, the lines for lunch at Sushirrito are insane.

So the backlash, it begins:

“Okay guys, before we get too excited about the latest yuppie hybrid, sushi + burrito = sushirrito, let me tell you that it’s really just an oversized sushi roll.  For over ten dollars. And an hour wait. If this still appeals to you, then you must a) really like sushi, and b) have a lot of desire and time on your hands to wait a ridiculously long time. Sara P. and I walked over to Sushiritto around 11:50am on a Wednesday, and the line was already around the corner, spilling onto Jessie.  We were maybe 12 feet from the corner of New Montgomery and Jessie, and it wasn’t until an hour and 20 minutes later that we walked out with our food.”

Oh well.

“Sushirrito offers made-to-order, hand-held sushi burritos stuffed with savory Asian and Latin-infused ingredients and flavors. Introducing fast, fresh, filling and eco-friendly sushi…a fresh way to roll!”

OMG, It’s “VISA Free Deal” Day – $80 Worth of Food at Tokyo Gogo in the Mission for Just $20!

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Here’s what you do, you buy a $40 credit at four-star Yelp-rated Tokyo Gogo for $20 on your Visa Card, and then you choose the person you want to receive another $40 credit at four-star Yelp-rated Tokyo Gogo.

That’s it. Now, you’re not allowed to take your friend to scarf down $80 worth of fish in one sitting, so that’s the catch, if you’d call it that. You’d need to invite your friend on one night and then s/he could pay you pack another night. (Oh, and if you refer three friends who fork over their $20, then you get another $40 credit to give to someone else. Quite iterative, non?

Otherwise, today’s deal is the sweetest social deal I’ve seen since Tsunami a few months back.

“Limit 3 per person, buy as many as you’d like as gifts • Limit 1 per party of 4 people (maximum of 2 vouchers can be used for parties of 8 or more people) • Gratuity not included (Be nice and tip on the pre-discounted total!) • Dine-in only (not valid for takeout or delivery) • Not valid during happy hour • Other conditions apply • Promotional value expires on 04/08/11″

Enjoy!

Nice Sign: “FRESH SUSHI (sushi) BENTO BOX (bento) TO GO, FRESH SUSHI (sushi) BENTO BOX (bento) TO GO”

OMG, Use a Visa Card at LivingSocial.com to get an $80 Credit at Tsunami Sushi in the NoPA for $20

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

[UPDATE: The official rating of this deal is now Beyond Excellent. More than a few buds have referred their buds and ended up with three $40 credits for just $20. (Our corporate overlords must have gone hog-wild.) Now, you're too young to remember, but this is like the dotcom days of the late '90s when you could get 50 pounds of dog food delivered to your house for like $8 'n stuff. Anywho, thank you India, thank you terror, etc...]

Word on the street is that August 5, 2010, is a gonna be a Visa Free Deal Day at Living Social.com. So, that means you should be able to get two $40 credits at the Panhandle Tsunami Sushi Bar at 1306 Fulton for just a $20 charge on your Visa card.

Per my Huggy Bear

“You pay $20 with your Visa card (debit or credit) to get your $40 credit, and then receive another $40 credit free to give to a friend (or keep for yourself, it’s not at all required to send the second credit to someone else). So that’s an $80 credit for only $20.”

And then if you refer three friends then you can get another $40 credit. That’s the deal as I understand it.

Tsunami looks appetizing from this angle:

I’m failing to see any unexpected downsides* here, people. (Be sure to tell me if you have any probs with this brand of social shopping.)

See you there!

*“Limit 1 per table per visit • Gratuity not included (Be nice and tip on the pre-discounted total!) • Dine-in only (not valid for takeout or delivery) • Not valid on happy hour items • Call 415-567-7664 to make your reservation • Other conditions apply • Promotional value expires on 12/30/10″

Do the Moonies Really Control the Bay Area’s Supply of Sushi Fish?

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

As always, You Make The Call. But the phrase “True World” is redolent of the “True Father” (Sun Myung Moon, the big guy himself), the “True Mother,” the “True Children” and on and on.

So check out these bits here and here about the Unification Church to give you something to think about the next time you see a True World Foods truck on the prowl making deliveries of delicious fish to your favorite sushi place.

The Longest Pink Hummer in the World – From San Jose With Love

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

It’s a little hard to see the writing in the window of this piiiiink 20-passenger Hummer H2 limousine from two-star rated, Santa Clara-based LeGrande Affair, but it says “SWEET SIXTEEN” just so you know.

This machine is a wide-awake nightmare, just so you know. It has none of the class of something like the “Biker Limo.”

But save your pennies and this could be you. Someday.
