Weeeee!

Well, actually its comforting to know that I'm actually a nice drunk, rather than the mean drunk I feared I might be most of my life.

Heck, I even made it home by myself in a foreign city.  Yay!

And now, I have to wake up in 4 hours to make the early train to Kyoto to start my solo adventures on Japan.

Point taken and edited.  slywink  Although did I mention I've got a few more beers in me now?

And that this is the first time I've been beyond tipsy in my life?

Yep, I've got no problems admitting I'm a noob to alcohol.

Remember, all the cool kids are drinking shochu now instead of sake.

Make sure to find your way into an izakaya.  They're bars, but with tons of great appetizer platter tapas sort of food options to choose from...usually with handy dandy picture menus to make it easy on you.

I've been meaning to find a place in Chicago which serves this.  Haven't really looked hard though, I keep forgetting.

Actually when you're going from dollars to yen you get quite a good deal!  I haven't met any hot womenz with Turtle but I find it inconceivable that he hasn't met any on his own (I'm referring only to the actual number of hot womenz over here, not Turtle's looks or possible meetability)

Haha! Funny shit. R.I.P. Farley.

Damn, I'm jealous. I've always wanted to go to Japan but, I'll finally be going there next year (yeah, I like to plan in advance) and I'm trying to figure out how much food/alcohol will cost me for two weeks. I realize that could vary alot on eating and drinking habits though. So...let's make this a bit easier, how much roughly for a beer at a bar? How much for a meal at a fast food place? Prices in US (or Canadian) dollars if possible. Arigato.

1 Japanese Yen is worth slightly less tan a penny here in the states.  So for that most part 100 yen is pretty close to a dollar for most transactions.

Beer prices, depending on where you go, aren't that different from the states.  There's places that will gouge you, places that'll have higher alcohol costs since it's associated with a different activity, and places with cheaper beer that's served up straight.  Cocktails here tend to be around 600 yen here which right now is about $5.50 USD, beers I think around 400 at a bar.  Bars and foreigner bars are decently lively depending on where you go.

Actually, I'm not sure how this all lines up with beers in the states at bars and places.

That's why you go to places where you can get nomihodae (all you can drink).  If you wanna really live then I suggest going to a nomihodae/tabehodae yakiniku restaurant.  You can drink as much as you can and eat (and grill yourself) as much meat as you can for about 2 hours for about $25 US.
