The original plan was to go to our old favorite Chinatown restaurant ‘R & G Lounge’ for Christmas dinner, but at the last minute we changed our minds and went to Japantown instead, heading for Benihana (not a very authentic Japanese place I know, but it can be fun once in a while … their lobster is a real treat!).  Crossing Post Street, this was the scene … crisp, clear evening, lots of light, lots of people – what more could you ask for?
