Sushi pretty much all looks the same, and I like all of it, unless it's bad. Domo Sushi is a tiny neighborhood spot in Hayes Valley. Laurel lives right around the corner so it was a perfect spot to meet. These are called Fire Cracker Balls.

Cabbie: sarcastically "Good night"
Me: "Just so we're clear, you were the one who was rude"
Cabbie: menacingly "You want to get out?"
