We had a barrier to hurdle in choosing from a menu filled with foods with Japanese names, and including ingredients like avocado, eel and crab. There was definitely no sign of chicken and mashed potatoes on this menu. Believe me. I looked.
“What is this?” was the question of the evening, and I’m sure the server grew tired of answering it for us.

Tech baseball in spotlight

Now, as the regular season draws to a close, the hype continues to circle around the Bulldogs.
“It’s good for the program and the recognition that we’ve been able to get,” said outfielder Brian Rike. “Our goal is to win the conference, but any kind of publicity or exposure that Tech can get, it is good.”
