Cow Palace

Some relatives, my father and I ate dinner at a trendy shabu-shabu restaurant Wednesday night.

How trendy?

On the ceiling, a contraption oscillated rows of artificial palm leaf fans.

The shabu-shabu bar faced several televisions all tuned to ESPNEWS.

Odd choice, I thought.

After dinner, we stopped by a trendy milk tea cafe.

The television inside was tuned to SciFi Channel.
