Just yesterday, we alerted you to the fact that Tyrese Gibson built a full Benihana restaurant in his own backyard. #Goals
Master of None star Aziz Ansari noted yesterday in a series of Instagram posts that the R&B star invited him, his brother, and comedy group The Lonely Island to his personal Benihana, which Gibson calls “Gibisihana,” to celebrate Aziz’s brother’s birthday. But that isn’t the end of the behind-the-scenes look at Gibisihana celebrations.
Gibson has since posted a #throwback photo of the official “GRAND OPENING” of Gibisihana, which fell on his daughter’s fifth birthday. None other than Will Smith, Paul Walker, and Vin Diesel showed up to watch some hibachi magic.
This is what level we took it to on the GRAND OPENING of #GIBISIHANA for my daughters 5th birthday party!! Her uncles showed up in style!! I guess my backyard resturant is pretty legendary…………. Finally a place where the Whos who get to EAT and relax and be exactly WHO they are………….. ( FYI ) this was also the first time Will had ever met and hung with my brothers Paul and Vin – 3 of my favorite people all showed up to hand for my daughters 5th……. She was no where in sight cause she for SURE had about 150 kids over to host……. She handled the kids and I handled the grown folks…. #GibsonDuo
Gibson is well aware that his “backyard restaurant is pretty legendary,” and “a place where the Whos who get to EAT and relax and be exactly WHO they are.” Sounds like the platonic ideal of a dining experience.
The actor and R&B star first revealed his game-changing landscaping move two years ago when he filmed a YouTube clip that proved its existence. “I’ve done some real fly shit in my backyard,” says Gibson.
