Saturday was a beautiful day here in the Kansai. It was hot one to be sure with a breeze only showing up fashionably late in the afternoon. In the kick-ass event space of Grow Space Salt Valley Ashiharabashi (in Japanese) Beer Zen held an epic keg party just about going through eight kegs of premium craft beer from the U.S. west coast. It was great fun working the kegs and talking to so many people who make the craft beer scene in Kansai such a warm and inviting crowd.
We then adjourned to another craft beer bar, TNT (just Facebook site for now), where the size is more intimate and the brew selection is even better. Discussing life with friends there I made it home before long and spent Sunday recovering.
Monday, was supposed to be a day of car pooling and cleaning. Nope. I met a friend out at Suma beach in western KOBE and we relaxed under his pavilion tent drinking a bit and swimming. The nearby Copenhagen Hot Dog shop was lunch; I always step in where the dogs are always awesome and the owner is friendly.
Now onto a week of festivals and driving. Looking forward to next Monday though. May the force be with us.
