Ruggles Black

I’ve started doing this thing where I go out on a weeknight and act like a grown up. How different…The idea came from a friend I met in college who has since finish and joined the workforce.

I’ve been eating and loving sushi for a total of 8 years now with a small 2 year hiatus due to the Sushi Food Poisoning of 2008. I’ve mostly been eating sushi at higher end places like Uchi or Aka Sushi House (number one on my own list). But recently, I decided to take a dive into Chinatown and swing… Read more →
