While there's great happiness in cursing choking punters while decorating your face with wing sauce, there's still that nagging feeling that our great world holds something more. Get "culture" without sacrificing jocular pleasures, at O Izakaya Lounge. A high-end Nipponese pub wallpapered with Japanese baseball cards and hi-def flatscreens, OIL's mission's to facilitate your favorite downtime troika -- food, booze, sports -- while expanding your horizons with more exotic foods, boozes, and sports. OIL'll broadcast the American majors (NFL, NBA, LPGA, etc), augmented with Japanese lynchpins: their World Series, the Grand Sumo Tournament, and...marathons, horse racing, and J-League Soccer -- for when MLS just isn't enough. The fusion'd grub enlightens as it enfattens (e.g., Butternut Squash Tempura, Berkshire Pork Belly w/ kimchee), while the Sake/Shochu cocktails contain strangenesses like the Umeboshi fruit -- compared by learned palates to a plum, and by stupid palates to purple Tropical Starbursts. For further enrichment, the host Hotel Kabuki does offer Bonsai tree training, "Ikebana" floral arranging, and Origami -- where you'll attempt to create a simple paper football but choke due to excessive wing sauce slippage.
