Are you looking for a night out with your family? I have a favorite place to eat -- Kumo Japanese Steakhouse in Stony Brook. I love to go there with my family. It is so much fun watching them cook in front of you.

One of my favorite parts of the tricks they do is that they make a volcano out of onion rings and then they light it on fire, but don't worry, it's not dangerous.

The food is really great. It's a fun atmosphere. They also cut up cucumbers and you have to try to catch it in your mouth. This makes everyone laugh and have a great time. They also make balloon animals for you.

I love to go there on my birthday with my family. So if you are looking for a great place to celebrate, this a great place to go. 2548 Nesconset Hwy., Stony Brook. Online: kumojapanese.com
