I have a regular get-together with my neighbors. We usually go over to Izakaya Musashi, but this time one of the older guys says, “Why don’t we have a pre-get-together get-together? So we did — over at the new Emblem Social Bar Kanazawa. Happy hour’s before 6 o’clock, drinks half price. That means a draft beer is only 350 yen, cheaper than coffee at a coffee shop. Maybe we’ll start a new trend in drinking parties.
