I would eat with Ian at the nearest Japanese restaurant. That man better bring his dog, because from extensive staring at one Twitpic, I can safely say that it's motherfucking adorable. :>
There's always the fear, though, that Ian would either, while laughing, snort into his hot sushi sauce, getting it all over his eyes, or just loudly shout "KOOOOOOOONIIIICHIIIIIWAWAWAWA!" at the waiters as the pass by -- because the all have to be Japanese.
Maybe he'd drunk-call Coast again.
