Before I started this site I used to write another blog, Gaijin Tonic, mainly about drinking and parties. After years of visiting seemingly every weird novelty bar and boozy festival in town, I ran out of things to write about, and my liver was screaming for a break. But despite the design and much of the content looking like remnants from an ancient civilization, that site still gets more hits than this!
I thought I’d be eco-friendly and recycle, by sharing some of the more popular Gaijin Tonic posts here:
