Trunks over his belly even before he hit 200+. Amazing.

He is the very definition of a goober. One of his few redeeming qualities, im(authoritative)o.

Hey @chum1 have you eaten at Jean-Robert’s Table? We had a large work group there last night and it was really good.

Would have liked to meet up for a mini-pak, but we’ve got to get out of town before Don’s rally tonight.
:adios:

Yep, several times! Great choice. The chef came to town to run a five star restaurant long ago and that's his current place.

Does the chef put cinnamon in his chili and then pour it over spaghetti?

Still going to that museum and WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE for the three days in Tokyo

HERE'S WHAT WE DID

DAY 1:

Sweat our asses off getting our luggage to the airbnb halfway between Ebisu and Shibuya
Ramen at Afuri in Ebisu
Incredibly cool turntable bar in Shibuya called Jazz Blues Soul

Day 2:

Hokkusai Museum (enjoyed it more than expected!)
Takayshimi(?) Times Square food court for lunch, Tokyu Hands in the same building. (the food court sucked because it was like all take home and there was nowhere to sit)
sushi boat restaurant in Shinjuku
Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku (just amazing, mind blowing, etc.)
some interesting nine-course all-you-can-drink Japanese food that featured some weird cabbage noodle dish

Day 3:
Shinjuku Gyoen gardens
Some weird mountain climbing themed restaurant called Hutte
Takeshita street
A record store that also had a bar
Yakult Swallows baseball game (super fun, got trashed on the 350 yen beers from the beer keg girls but taking a piss was an ordeal because the seats were super cramped)
An incredibly shitty turntable bar called Grandfather's
A possibly shittier lounge with a cool view (DJamer Bar)

Day 4:

Yamante Art Museum (very close to our airbnb)
Hedgehog Cafe (one hedgehog had a really shitty attitude)
Random cocktail bar/curry place between Harajuku and Shibuya
Karaoke bar where they filmed the scene in Lost in Translation (SG Lounge)
Disc Union Record store (great stuff)
Flight home :-(


Overall:
Loved it
especially enjoyed walking between stations, like from Shinjuku Gyoen to Harajuku or Harajuku to Shibuya
People are absolutely kind and helpful even if they laugh at your dumb western face for committing a social faux pas
it was hot as eff the entire time, like instantly dripping sweat when I stepped outside
wish we could have had more dinners and lunches at random places
wish we would have gone to some of the terrace house boys and girls in the city restaurants
wish we could have gone to the country

Wacky - as mentioned in KC thread, Westside market is a great place to eat and drink. Great Lakes Brewing is there. Eat and drink in the basement. Far less crowded after work. Several good places downtown within the triangle between the stadiums/arena. Some good places on Lee Rd and Coventry Rd to the east of Case Western.

I usually stayed at the Embassy Suites off Rockside near 480 and 77. Only a handful of places there. Melt, Slyman's, Harry's, and Delmonico. Can never go wrong with Winking Lizard Tavern for some wings and beer.
