The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Eat to the center of snow with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese fare and drinks at Tombo Hibachi Sushi & Tiki Lounge, located in Brick Walk Plaza.
Tombo fires up lunch and dinner fare with meals grilled right before your eyes, Hibachi-style, creating a deliciously flame-licked evening. Ogle the restaurant's modern decor and diversiform dragonfly images, then grab a seat in the main room, where Tombo's dexterous chefs put on a show while cooking up favorites such as sirloin steak ($11.95 for lunch; $19.95 for dinner) or lobster ($25.95 for dinner), as well as vegetarian options such as organic tofu with veggies ($6.95 for lunch and $13.95 for dinner) or vegetable gyoza ($4.95). Guests can also enjoy a selection of sushi rolls and classic Japanese fare from the traditional lunch and dinner menus. For dessert, let a fire snowball warm your winterized stomach with a flaming blob of fried ice cream ($6.25).
Tombo offers a wide variety of drink options, including beer, wine, champagne, sake, and specialty concoctions to clear throatways for the free karaoke that begins after 9 p.m. Lube your food tube with a Nutty Monkey's rum almond liqueur, fresh banana, and pineapple juice, or satisfy both the fruit and booze sections of the food pyramid with a refreshing Papaya Kiss made with Malibu rum, fresh papaya, peach schnapps, and a tender smooch of orange juice.
