"Oops" is not what you say upon discovering you've scheduled an international trip over Valentine's Day, leaving your significant other alone with only two cats for romantic entertainment. Most of the words that come out of your mouth involve four letters and therefore are not fit to print. Even worse, however, is what you imagine your partner will say when he finds out you're skipping town on V-day.
Something bold, and knowing my husband, involving food and drink had to be done. Eating out on the days leading up until Valentine's Day can be tedious, so I decided to plan an intimate dinner in the comfort of our home. Not takeout, though (that's for regular lazy weekend nights), but rather catering from Ohba Sushi.
Ohba Sushi scored points early by agreeing to put together a miniaturized version of their standard sushi platters (unsurprisingly, most of the parties they cater consist of more than two people) and doing so on fairly short notice (48 hours).
They earned additional accolades by customizing a diverse platter of rolls, sashimi, and nigiri to suit our protein preferences. And although our order did not meet the minimum dollar amount for delivery, kindly employee Chris offered to meet up in a location convenient to my house en route to another event.
