The One about Japan Dining M (Hokkaido Yoshoku Bar) at Shiodome

If you are looking for a family restaurant that sells Japanese comfort food for great prices, is not always easy to find. But at Shiodome, Japan Dining M (or better known now as Hokkaido Yoshoku Bar) not only offers great prices for their dishes but unlike other restaurants in Japan, it’s all you can drink and self-serve for beverages.

The One about Richard Sandomir’s “The Pride of the Yankees: Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper, and the Making of a Classic”

I’m a huge Yankees fan, literally have a shrine in one room with autographs from famous Yankees from past to present. And I also have a few items honoring the legendary Lou Gehrig. And I am a huge fan of the film “The Pride of the Yankees”. And how wonderful it is to have a book titled “The Pride of the Yankees: Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper, and the Making of a Classic” dedicated to the […]
