Tsukiji market holds final New Year avip armbandsuctionFive Reasons Why I Love Hip Hop Music Now I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers. If you are like most people buying event wristbands (or armbands or bracelets) for an event, you want to be sure they"ll help you let the right people into a venue and that they"ll keep the wrong people out. Maybe one of these 10 plans will make it to your family"s weekend calendar. There"s one more possibility to consider. Doing nothing at all is one way to celebrate what Labor Day is all about, a holiday for the average working person. Considered a sister scene to Detroit which had its own share of financial woes business decline sport wristbands and population shrinkage Cleveland gave rise to a generation of punk rock counterculture. Right now it"s a whirlwind of excitement for me. I"m painting all the time and have ideas come to mind 24/7. This has been the longest stretch of having my artist mojo in... well forever. I hope the future brings new exhibit opportunities, increase in orders for custom work, I hope for a few sales, and I can"t wait to see what I learn. Hopefully I will be able to show on a smaller scale and maybe even put on a show myself. One important thing to know about adhesive: it gets stronger after a few minutes. It"s essentially glue, right? Put any glue on two parts and immediately pull them apart and they"ll come apart. Give them some time to bond and, depending on the glue, you might never get them apart without destroying the parts.
TOKYO - In the final New Year"s auction at Tokyo"s famed Tsukiji fish market on Friday, the owner of an international sushi restaurant shelled out $320,000 for a prime bluefin tuna and said he was "very happy" with the result.
The world"s largest fish market, one of Tokyo"s most popular tourist sites, is set to relocate later this year to clear the way for a road needed for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Hiroshi Onodera, the president of LEOC Co which owns the Ginza Onodera restaurant chain, paid 36.45 million yen ($323,000) for a 405-kilogram premium Pacific bluefin tuna - around 90,000 yen per kg.
The price was just over half that of last year"s winning bid of 72 million yen and well below the record 155 million yen paid in 2013.
"I"ve tried to win in the auction since last year, so I"m really happy," said Onodera, whose company has restaurants in New York and Singapore as well as in Japan. "This is especially true because it"s the last year in Tsukiji."
Tuna is prized around the world for its use in sushi, but experts warn growing demand has made it an endangered species.
"The high price paid today for a single Pacific bluefin tuna should not distract from the dire status of the species, which has been depleted by more than 97 percent by years of overfishing," said Jamie Gibbon, a Pacific bluefin tuna expert for the Pew Charitable Trusts, in a statement.
"If countries continue to exceed their catch limits, ... the very survival of the species will be threatened."
The 80-year-old Tsukiji market draws tens of thousands of visitors a year to its warren of stalls with exotic species of fish and fresh sushi, part of a tourism boom that is a key part of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe"s economic revival plan.
"This will truly be the final auction here, so I made sure I came to watch," said Mitsuko Yamaguchi, the 61-year-old owner of a seafood store.
