Lately it seems like every weekend brings another birthday party to attend and Friday night was no exception - this time it was for one of Jim's Japanese room mates - Ayano - it was held at Zakkushi Japanese Restaurant on Denman near Robson - while not a big fan of sushi this restaurant had a good selection of meals to choose from as the images below will should.
It was a fun evening - after dinner we went back to Jim's and celebrated some more.
Ayano (middle) and two of her closest friends - our waitress was also a friend of hers.
A few of us gave her gifts - mine is the red Olympic mitts which have been a smash hit here in Vancouver.
Some of the food that we ordered.
What's a Japanese meal without a Sapporo beer.
A cake was presented - she took it home and shared it with us back at the apartment.
A good evening was had by all despite a Lions and Canucks losses.
