This is fun to watch -- it's a brief YouTube clip that Terry's Dad told us about. Thanks Jack!
And now that we've all got beer on the brain, a photo pick of the day:
I took this with my phone during a recent Year 5 parents' night out at Andy's Izakaya (Shin Hinomoto), a cozy joint shelved beneath the railroad tracks in Yurakucho. (Menu highlights: sashimi! sliced, sauteed eryngi mushrooms drowning in butter!) The drinker was not with our group. I think he was celebrating a birthday or something. I just like the guy in the next booth's expression. I can see the thought bubble over his head: Silly gaijin!
