Last night's hound gathering Happy hour at Park East

First, big props to jrvedivici for the thankless and usually frustrating job of organizing. He was the perfect host for the evening, making sure we were all comfortable and happy. A good time was had by all.
On to the food...
Park East was just as advertised, with drink specials and a free hot buffet, and the joint was jumpin. Jrvedivici got it right though when he said that the sushi was the best thing to eat there. We had a few interesting rolls, including a surf n turf roll that blended some meat into the mix, and a standout lobster and shrimp combo roll called a three muskateers. They have a lot of special nights at Park East and I may just go back on Monday for the free poker tournament and have some more rolls.
Don't get me wrong, Park East is not a sushi destination restaurant, and five minutes away in Keyport is much better asian cuisine, but we were all happy to spend a few hours there.
Agreed ... a nice evening meeting fellow Chowhounders. Huzzah and thanks to jrvedivici!
On to the Asbury Park chow-crawl next week!
I had a great time meeting everyone. Thanks to jrvedivici for setting it all up. Too bad I had some other things to take care of or I would have stayed longer. Hope to see everyone again soon.
Same here nice to put some faces and real names to Chow handles! Nice meeting all of you and I look forward to next week. See you soon!!
