Yesterday was my good friend Ariel’s birthday! (Happy 20th Ari!) Even though it was a Tuesday (perhaps even worse than Mondays in my mind…) we decided it was necessary to celebrate anyway and ended up having a birthday dinner at Mari’s Japanese Cuisine. Mari’s has amazing food and is super easy to get to from campus (go up Nott Street, make a left at the light onto Van Vranken Avenue and take it all the way down until you see Mari’s glowing in Japanese deliciousness on the left). The service may not be as stunningly fast as Schenectady’s other wonderful sushi stop, Mr. Wasabi, but the fish is unparalleled in its freshness! I’m growing nostalgic for last night’s meal just writing this post…
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
