Celebrate Golden Week in Tokyo at a yakitori theme park!

Let's celebrate the beginning of Golden Week with a Metafilter visit to Tokyo's first yakitori theme park! Seven famous yakitori shops from around Japan have been brought together under one roof, so there's a lot of good grilled chicken to try out. The food is good, prices are reasonable, and it's a fun atmosphere. Let's yakitori! [more inside]

Blue Shirt Board Games

The weather has improved. Daylight Savings has pushed sunset to a later, less depressing hour. It's the perfect time to sit indoors and squint at each other. Let's play board games at the Blue Shirt Cafe at 2:00 on Sunday, April 30th. Bring any games you like. If you'd like to play a game you don't own, request it here. [more inside]

Beer! Conversation! ...Beer!

Because (a) we haven't had a pub meetup in a while, along with (b) my own rather sequestered circumstances and (c) general consternation over the state of the nation, I could really use a restorative or three and some amiable palaver.
