Once a month my husband and i go out to dinner with four other couples. We have been doing this for a year plus and love it. Pne couple a month decide where we are going to go. Several times certain places have been chosen and the rest of the group has said no. Applebees comes to mind. Anyway the august choice is a fusion sushi restaurant. Think rolls with serranos and lots of sauces. I have eaten there and i like it. I love traditional sushi also, but admit to loving a fusion roll. However, the group is now polarized and i am the swing vote. Two couples dont want to, one of which said emphatically no way. But when we go to mexican restaurants and there is cheddar cheese over everything they dont mind. I really dont want to piss off my group but i feel like they are being snobs. I love that we do this, and i have definately gone some places i would never go on my own choice. Im voting for yes on the fusion place (they have great sushi and sashimi that isnt fused) but im bristling at their attitude.
