GlobeTrotters Came to San Antonio

I saw a few clips from GlobeTrotters before, but I haven't seen them performing live. We suppose to watch them last year when they visited in Sacramento, but we took a trip to the Philippines, and missed the whole event.
We've been waiting for them to come to San Antonio for the last 5 months. Finally, we saw them performed live last Tuesday night. It was my first time watching them. Hubby saw them a few times before. I thought they were very entertaining. The 4-point shot rocks!
A short clip from them performing with Globie, the mascot.
Here's our GlobeTrotter fan. Hubby bought his hunica hija a $25.00 ball. It's just too expensive for a basketball.

Dining Out at Benihana

Last December 24 was our 6th wedding anniversary. Hubby took me to Benihana Restaurant. It is a Japanese resto that offers teppanyaki style Japanese cooking. It's quiet a fancy type of restaurant, but I honestly don't like their food. However, I thought the entertainment part was pretty impressive. Hubby had Lemon Chicken, Akesha had kid's steak, and I had Seafood Diablo.
I'm not sure if the chef is Asian or Mexican. It is hard to!
