Music! and Movies! in the Month of August, 2016

17 09 2016

Hadn’t put my musical and movie events from August together yet due to writing about Iceland and Singapore.  Here I go first with music!

And the films.

And my favorite film of the month.





Shibuya Sardinian

7 04 2016

This was my second visit to this great Sardinian restaurant right in the heart of Shibuya.  It’s very popular and busy but we were lucky to get a table for seven reserved only on the day before.  The place was packed.

My Romanian guests loved it.

Music! in the Month of March, 2016

1 04 2016

Mostly happy and fun musical events during March, 2016 with one sad event, a funeral, which was musical nonetheless.

 





“Korean Barbecue”, a Japanese Adaptation

8 04 2015

I had to take a big group of guests out for a casual dinner in a very specific neighborhood in Tokyo which I was not familiar with.  My solution – Korean barbecue though I was told there was one vegetarian (and he did OK eating grilled vegs and apparently he was OK with seafood as well).

As Korean BBQs in Japan go, there are many options from casual to very fancy but one thing that is true I believe is that our “Korean” BBQ is not the most common style of BBQ Koreans have in Korea or at least that’s what I figured when I visited Seoul years ago.

Anyway, I think I managed to please the guests which was my priority.

Surprised at the number of music films that were available and that I went to see during March.  That added to actual music events I was at, came to be quite a few.
