Katana Robata and Sushi Bar is one of the Innovative Dining Group restaurants, located on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood!
It is one of my all time favorites! I have been a regular there since its opening years ago. It is still just as popular as it was then. Love the outdoor patio overlooking Sunset! (This is where hubby and I had our first date!) Bar area is also great for Happy Hour!

Celebrated my birthday (Feb. 25th) in Las Vegas!
It’s a friends birthday on the same day. He had his bash in Vegas for the weekend. We were staying at Palm Resort Casino, had dinner at N9NE Steakhouse, went dancing at Ghost Bar and enjoyed the rest of the time in the Hardwood Suite where they were staying. Full bar, more food and shooting hoops on the basketball court (in the suite). It was AWESOME!!!
