Popeye – Issue 905 (09/22)
POPEYE magazine is the “Magazine for City Boys”.
(JAPANESE LANGUAGE ONLY)
The founders printed this on the cover of the magazine when it debuted in 1976. What’s a “city boy”? The term doesn’t appear in the dictionary and no expert panel could define it. So we felt we should explore every aspect of what this “city boy” might be. After decades of debate, it still makes for a topic of lively discussion. It can be a style or a way of thinking. To get an idea of what makes a city boy, read POPEYE magazine.
Popeye – Issue 905: City boy, going to a bar alone for the first time.
If you read this one book, open the door cautiously and look inside,
You don't have to do anything. I would rather be excited.
I'm sure now what to order for the first drink, how to dress,
What should I talk with the bartender, what is fun in the first place,
I just don't know anymore. You can't go to a bar alone.
But if you know about alcohol properly and you like it, this is the one for you.
The basics are solid, such as the difference between short and long, soda and tonic,
From standard to cocktails that fit the mood of the current era.
There are also ideas to understand alcohol properly and enjoy drinking more.
There is nothing more rude than talking about alcohol in a bar,
I want to be that kind of person who drinks alcohol beautifully without pretending to know it.
