Heritage Marketplace in Gilbert includes restaurants like Even Stevens, Farm & Craft, Clever Koi, Nico Heirloom Kitchen and candy store Rocket Fizz. Sushi Brokers is one of their newer tenants. Sushi Brokers has locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix and offers a huge selection of sushi, vegetarian fare and dishes comprising seafood, chicken and beef if you are not into sushi. They have over twenty creative sushi rolls on their menu. They also have a nice selection of wines, draft and bottle beers, sake, and a large array of imported and domestic Vodkas. Their happy hour is what makes them so popular as they discount their prices on sushi and drinks. I came here with a buddy after an evening at the neighboring Art Intersection. We ordered quite a bit of rolls and drinks. The sushi wasn’t bad but definitely pretty pricey compared to most places. I may come back again for happy hour.
One of my favorite movies growing up was Tron. It came out in 1982 and starred Jeff Bridges. It has developed into a cult film over the past couple decades. When I was a kid we used to play Tron games by using frisbees as our identity discs. I loved the arcade game too with its cool light-up blue joystick. Back in the day, Disneyland had a ride called the Peoplemover that took you through the park and through the World of Tron. My favorite scenes in the movie were always the lightcycles ones. In 2010, Disney released a sequel to Tron called Tron: Legacy. This movie brought back all the fond memories I had as child. Below are the trailers to the movie.

I wrote in an earlier post about Cobra Arcade Bar. I always thought it would be cool to own an arcade like Flynn did in the Tron movie. Cobra Arcade Bar has brought all that nostalgia back to me by bringing back these classic arcade games. Tonight Cobra partnered with FilmBar for a Tron theme night. They showed the original 1982 movie over at FilmBar and then had a themed party afterwards next door at Cobra. I was totally stoked about this night when I heard about it. They had exclusive drinks just for the night and the staff dressed in Tron gear. I ordered a blue drink called Quorra’s Revenge that was really good. A Daft Punk tribute band called One More Time were the DJs for the night. They even had the classic Tron arcade game on hand to play. I of course had to wear my Flynn Lives t-shirt to get into the spirit of things. I had a blast and hope they do more theme nights like this.

Shanghai Disney Resort recently opened a Tron ride. Bummer they don’t have it here at the U.S. resorts. But it looks fun!
