I can’t believe I haven’t posted this yet! In our town, in Chikugo, there is a place we call the Old Lady Bar. It might have a real name, but we’ve never heard it and there’s no sign outside. It’s just a small, narrow bar, filled with old people, and it is the greatest bar in town.
A few weeks ago we went there for some karaoke and drinks, as we often do. Sometimes it’s empty; sometimes it’s filled with older retirees who might stay or might file out if we make too much noise. But that night, there were a lot of really fun older people. And somehow, the whole thing turned into a dance/karaoke party with old Japanese people!
