Our friend, and Dallas’s coworker, Chris happened to be travelling around Japan at the same time we were. His last two days, in Tokyo, overlapped with us so we met up with him. He was living out a Lost in Translation dream by staying at the Park Hyatt Tokyo. We met up with Chris at the New York Bar, which is located in the hotel, and where several scenes from Lost in Translation were filmed.



The New York Bar is definitely upscale and spendy, but the views of Tokyo are amazing! And it was so cool to sit at the same bar where Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray sat in the movie. Dallas would like you to know that the band “was no Sausalito!”

Budweiser is more than Asahi, Kirin, Sapporo and Suntory.

Bustin’ Makes Me Feel Good

The Music Box Theatre had a midnight viewing of Ghostbusters over the weekend. Believe it or not, Sara had never seen this movie, so we all headed over to check it out. I was afraid that with all this build-up that Sara would have been let down, but she seemed thrilled. Yay! Also, the whole audience was really into the movie. How cheesy are those ghost special effects from almost 30 (whoa!) years ago!?!

We didn’t realize til after us that a real Ghostbuster was sitting behind us. Good thing, because the Music Box Theatre is said to be haunted. After the movie this Ghostbuster guy was more than happy to let people take photos with him, so, of course, we made Sara do it. I heard this guy make a comment that he only gets to wear his Ghostbusters costume a few times a year. A few times?!?! Like when? Halloween? And? I wonder if he’s a part of the Chicago Division of Ghostbusters, Your Troop Outside the Loop. Oh boy!
