Meet George From Seinfeld

Seinfeld was my favorite show when it was on, and it brings back fond memories of watching it with my father. The chance to meet him came at the 2008 WSOP, when the poker player agency I worked for got him a PokerStars deal. I got to hang out with him quite a bit that day, and the man behind the character is a great guy that was down to earth and fun to chat with.

“Jiro Dreams of Sushi” & how nanonoko helped me add a new item to my life list!

Randy ‘nanonoko’ Lew recently sent me this awesome clip of a movie trailer for “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” **(More on this below)**

Movie Description:

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

For most of his life, Jiro has been mastering the art of making sushi, but even at his age he sees himself still striving for perfection, working from sunrise to well beyond sunset to taste every piece of fish; meticulously train his employees; and carefully mold and finesse the impeccable presentation of each sushi creation. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father’s shadow.

The feature film debut of director David Gelb, JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and a loving yet complicated father.

This is made only more awesome by the fact that I badly want to visit Tokyo, so I have decided to add “Eat the best sushi in the world, Tokyo, Japan” (This means Jiro’s) to my bucket/life list.

**nano sent the clip to me when we were talking about hard work, and he basically cited Jiro as an analogy for himself “Jiro is still striving for perfection after all these years, and never missed a day of work…why should I?” And this is why nanonoko is one of the world’s best in my book!

Enjoy!
