|Me with some weird thing stuck to my face.|
Yesterday I went to the "snack bar" Ropossa (Sapporo, in reverse in Japanese, sa-double consonant-po-ro --> ro-po-double consonant-sa). A "snack" means a bar where the "mama" and other women working there will talk to you, and can often mean a bar with an expensive charge or expensive drinks but flirty waitresses. Ropossa is a "magic snack". The mama does magic, though she does not call herself a magician and says that the bar is not a magic bar.

If you go there as a magician, she will generally not do much magic for you (though you can still see her show for the other customers), but will instead give you endless amounts of puzzle boxes that won't open, hard to figure out mind games, etc. Very exhausting :-) It is a very fun place to go. The magic show is generally impressive too, with lots of sponge rabbits, sponge penises, bending spoons, and a very long balloon being swallowed whole.
|More food, pasta, hamburger steak, and something that is probably cheese.|
