Review: It’s All Fun & Games With Dinners To Die ForI do a lot of stuff. Like, A LOT. All the time. So sometimes it’s a little difficult for me to be impressed. Which is terrible, I know, and I feel like a dork even saying it. But it’s true. The good thing, though, is that if something genuinely fantastic comes along, I’ll be over the moon. And that’s exactly the experience I had with the Dinners To Die For experience at Bu Ya Ramen & Sake Bar this past weekend.
