Pizza at Salut is awesome. Also, Soho7, across from Salut, has great import beers and good sandwiches. 10nt wing night at Fu Bar is fun too.

Thanks for the links to those 2 places you mentioned.

Taichung is on a decline? I was told that the city is becoming more modern and a new MRT is being built. This has not meant an increase in live music or open mic nights in pubs, bars and coffee ships in the city, then?


Is there a connection? Transporting your instrument could be easier ... :ponder:

Is Las Vegas still open? A pretty nice buffet not too far from Sogo. My wife's cousin took us there, I guess she figured since we lived in Vegas why not take us to a buffet named Las Vegas. I found it to be quite good actually but my wife informed me that these trendy places tend to fail in Taichung for some reason.

I'll be visiting sans the wife in May and I need to find some places to hit up after the relatives go to sleep, I don't wanna hear that Taichung is dead. That's not good news to see or read.
Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

This is an odd title for a thread considering the tragedy that happened at Ala early Sunday morning.

You didn't hear. It is in the newspapers. A fire dance performance went awry, set the ceiling on fire, and nine people were killed :cry: .

This thread was started nearly two years ago. Are you insinuating that the OP's not only a horrible person, but clairvoyant, too? :loco:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

Can't say whether or not the OP is a horrible person as I do not know them personally. They may be clairvoyant though. It's just odd that I was looking for reactions to the tragedy on Forumosa and this title comes up.

Apologies. I misread your post. :bow:
