Asian Flava

5:00 PM -- I thought I'd just pass this press party invitation along, just so you can see what kind of tempting/looney offers we get while doing the noble work of running a news operation:

Sushi anyone? Wrestling perhaps?

You’re invited to join us for an Asian celebration of "Sumo & Sushi" on Sept. 12th in Los Angeles!

MobileFocus takes place on Tuesday, Sept. 12th, the first night of the CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment show, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

We'll have all of the leading wireless and entertainment companies in one room, including names like AOL, GoTV, Microsoft, MobiTV, Nokia, Palm, Panasonic, RIM, and many more!

And when you're not sampling our sushi smorgasbord, you can step into one of our (comfortably padded) sumo suits for some not-so-mobile competition.

Come early! The first 100 people to attend will receive an authentic, four-piece Japanese sushi set.

Just curious: What would these party planners do for an India-themed celebration? Curry and outsourcing? The mind boggles.

re: Asian Flava The Sumo suit isn't tempting?

re: Asian Flava Sumo suits are great... But you definitely want to go first.

Just imagining putting it on after a dozen sweaty participants is not my idea of "fun".
Think of it as rental bowling shoes for your body.

Cornholing with your competitors cellphones would seem more topically appropriate and entertaining.

Just think of the video!

So when you see it, remember CLG thought of it first.

re: Asian Flava Tanking up on raw fish, sake, and then putting on a fat suit and running into someone?

Not my cuppa tea.
