Sushi date!

Hello again!
A few weeks ago Ryan and I went on a pretty fun and entertaining date night where we got to MAKE SUSHI. I found the deal through the Amazon Local App. They offered a sushi making class at a local Japanese restaurant for half amount it usually costs. I believe I paid $70 for the two of us which is close to what our sushi dinners run and this time WE made it ourselves. So awesome. 
When we arrived we sat at a booth across from another couple and were given these trays assembled with the items we'd need throughout the class with a description card of the three different rolls we would be making. The couple across from us were fun to talk to and we really enjoyed being able to laugh and share a good time with one another. We paired the night with a few cold ones and we were set!
Action cam!
While we were making the rolls the owner of the restaurant was demonstrating and explaining what to do. He told us funny stories about the origins of Japanese cooking. He was a real character and made us all laugh. It felt like we were at a comedy show!
Here is the first roll that we made, a pretty basic crab meat, avocado, and cream cheese roll with seaweed wrapper on the outside. 
Aerial view of our spread. At the end we got to take the bamboo rolling mats so that we would be able to have a sushi making night at home. 
Here you will see the half eaten final roll that we made. I don't remember the name but it was the MacDaddy of rolls. It had shrimp tempura inside and outside was topped with crab stick salad, panko crumbs, spicy mayo, and eel sauce. This roll was super delicious!

The whole experience was a blast. I would recommend anyone to check out Amazon Local, Groupon, and Living Social for any deals in your area. You can find some really interesting stuff to do. 
I love finding things like this to do with my honey. 

Hope you enjoyed sharing my experience. If anyone has found any great deals out there and had fun experiences I'd love to hear about them. Comment below and share your good time.

Thanks for reading!
