MSP - Naked Sushi at Temple

Anyone feel like eating sushi off a naked person? I'm not a big sushi fan as it is...But Thom Pham is having a night of naked sushi at Temple

  1. And it is cheap. $75 for drinks and sushi served on a naked body. Sounds like a deal.

    Anyone know what the health department thinks of this sort of thing?

          I had the same reaction (well, except I was 10 in 1987 so I was thinking of how they've done this on a bunch of stupid reality shows). People are going to go, so in that way it's successful, but it just seems too forced and silly.

            yeah, i was 12 in 1987 so i'm kinda talking out of ye olde reare--

            but it sure is a far-from original idea and one that's pretty disgusting to me after talking with some chefs who've had to arrange highly perishable foods on naked human bodies.

            eat fast is all i have to say, because that hot naked model will smell like. . . *lots* of body-temperature raw fish very quickly. gack.

            i haven't been a fan of thom pham for quite a while now, although i used to think that maybe i needed to get over it. i think a restaurant owner should pay more attention to his ingredients & menu than his wardrobe. this naked sushi thing seems to tip the scales back to ol' thom being an unoriginal, style vs. substance restaurateur. i so agree with you, Kate: forced & silly. i think it's lame, nuff said.
