Tonight I’m heading to Popeye with my good buddy, Andreas. We know each other from the Japanese language classes we took together in Los Angeles. Now he lives in Tokyo and I’m a nomad. It’s great to meet up again!
Popeye is supposedly the craft beer place in Tokyo – perhaps the first, the original? – so I’m excited to visit them and see what’s up!
Popeye is a busy place and seems to be popular with business people and salary workers. It’s packed and it’s only Wednesday night. Their beer selection is good. Eat before you go, or after, or you’ll pay for an undersized portion of “just OK” bar food. (Portions are generally smaller in Japan than in America, but still, at Popeye, for the price, I want more food.)
