Nah, nah, who am I kidding right? But really, we actually did have quite a few that did pretty well.

    Happy Birthday WWE!


  21. hemajang:

    yo, happy birthday to WWE AND Mrs.C-Dub. I have no idea of that place. Must be fine dining though and Japanese?..I see a little salmon fish eggs or kazunoko on the side.

    I think we should be guessing where CW going take his wife out for dinner...not Zippy's. CW knows his restaurants so gotta be a good one.


  22. Takeshi:

    First link was a little weird, trying again

  23. Takeshi:

    And to clarify, I meant Sam Choy's Diamond Head.

    Side note - I ate at Ranch House this past week and I wasn't that impressed. The food was good, but I don't think it was worth the price we paid.


  24. frankie:

    Woooop!


  25. che:

    Happy 2nd birthday. It also reminds me that I might be the worst "Where is Ed?" player. Not one point yet. Anyone else out there without any point? Sh*t, I thought so.

    Ok I'll guess Kai.


  26. kuya.d:

    Happy boithday WWE!!!

    - I was all set to boycott if never have one WIHIES.


  27. kuya.d:

    @CW - happy birthday to your wife!


  28. kuya.d:

    Whoa! I looked back at the Fantasy Football blog and me and @BFysh joked about Brett Favre being a bust ... But @rbj stuck by Brett, and he was right!

    - see Ed, you shoulda taken my junk advice.


  29. M:
