I'm a firm believer that going out on weeknights can only make your life better (as long as you keep it under control).
I now live for Taco Tuesdays, my latest obsession in Osaka. This little bar tucked in the side streets of Shinsaibashi holds a weekly event called well, Taco Tuesdays. I do realize I'm making a big fuss over a bit of food, but when you've been living in Japan for over a year, Mexican food is something you crave so, so much.
The bar, Wax 69, is owned by two friendly and chatty surfer boys from California. I usually avoid going to any kind of drinking establishment on my own, but this place really makes it comfortable. The bar is tiny, the atmosphere is warm and laid-back, and the taco shells are crispy. I'm forever thankful to Eve for introducing me to this place and the weekly event, and thank goodness for shrimp tacos on a freezing January night. It's usually fairly packed, and it's a great way to meet new, young people.
I love having the option of doing activities on weeknights, which I did not really have back in the countryside.
And, I love walking by the Glico man advert on Dotonbori Bridge on my way back home.
