AZABU JUBAN: Bistro Awa standing bar... most of the customers were pretty ladies (SONY RX100)

Out for a few drinks and headed on over to Bistro Awa that is consistently busy.

Unsure if they charged an otoshi fee but you have a choice of several tiny dishes. 

J-Sports recapping the Rugby World Cup on TV.

Friend went for the Spilled Sparkling Wine... I think overflowing might be a better word choice.

Filled to the brim.

Most drinks are 500 yen.

Spicy garlic edamame.

The bar is so cozy and a great place to chat up people... 

Of course a Ferrari spotting in this posh area.

AZABU JUBAN: BULLS Yakiniku Restaurant... nice private booths with nomihoudai for +2,000 yen (SONY RX100)

Its been years since my hedgefund colleagues met up for dinner... a mix of business and catching up.

Thinly sliced raw beef... super tender.

Beef sushi... quite chewy.

Salt had sprinkles of truffles. 

The most tender meat of the night.

If you can expense it this is a great place for dinner as the courses start at around 10,000 yen per person but it didn't quite match the stunning Yakiniku I had in Osaka which is on another level!

OKINAWA NAHA: Okinawa Hi-Ball Sakaba Tamaran... kinda like hooters but with shorts. (Canon s120)

Friend kept mentioning this Okinawan Izakaya in Naha where the staff wears tiny shorts... ok ok... so on my final night in Okinawa we headed on over.

1800 yen all you can drink menu with 100 yen extra charge per beer

OR 2200 yen menu that includes beer.

Steamed AGU PORK!  Couldn't really tell the difference between this and the thinly sliced pork I buy at the supermarket... 

RIBS!  But sure didn't look like the photo...

Octopus karaage. 

The staff was frequently talking to this regular customer... he ordered pizza for the girls.

Ladies Night all you can drink for only 500 yen! Wow thats a deal.  Overall its a nice spacious place to hang out and the drink menu was rather huge.
