"Olly Olly Oxen Free!"
Friday was one of several Sayonora parties for Mark Saito (Keene) and his fiancee, Yuko. We gathered at Hide and Seek(電話：022-214-7978 住所：宮城県仙台市青葉区一番町4-4-5 八百善ビル2F), a very cool and mellow dining establishment near the entrance of Kokubuncho, (The "Buncho" is Sendai's party-central, with bars, pubs, massage parlors, and various other venues of ill-repute.) Several of the Echophonyk DJs have been known to play their more dulcet sets on Friday nights. The food is good, the staff are friendly, but it IS a little steep and can take a dent out of your pocketbook. Unless you plan ahead and show up with a dozen hungry and thirsty people, where you can get several delicious menu items and an all you can drink for 2500￥. We went from there to Evergreen (another good mellow joint) and ended the night at Shaft till about 4:00am.
