The sushi memo and local counsel

We had some fun in this office reflecting on "the sushi memo," which Howard Bashman has discussed here and here, and which was the subject of this Oct. 22 article in the NY Times (registration required). Unlike the paralegal who reported on where to find the good sushi in Manhattan, it is sometimes the role of local counsel when we are hosting the big-city lawyers who come to Southwest Virginia to point out were the good food is, or where the strong drink may be found, or both at the same time. (Or, another time, the out-of-towners wanted directions to the Virginian, since our federal court hearing ended in time for them to make their tee time.)
