Roppongi the Novel
Book Launch Party
Mogambo's 20th Anniversary Party
11th February, 2012
Roppongi, Tokyo, Japan.
27th February 2012
Well, the 'Roppongi' Book Launch and Mogambo's 20th Anniversary has come and gone, and a grand Tokyo adventure was had by all I think. Certainly it was had by me! The Roppongi landscape has changed considerably from when I worked my first shifts there seventeen years ago. It is now quite a different place, and I am glad I had the opportunity to experience those changes first-hand. The twelve days I spent in Tokyo were a surprising blend of madness, sadness, nostalgia, fun, snow! reunions, story-telling and party antics by old faces as well as new.
But I am now
The Big One!
Anyone who knows anything about this bar and its history knows that they will want to be there for this most special of gatherings.
As much as this will be the 20th birthday party for one of Roppongi's most infamous hedonistic institutions, this particular anniversary party is moreso about manifesting a global reunion of the Mogambo's 'diaspora'.
Old faces, old friends, old lovers, old stories ... basically ... an "old-skool" reunion. How are we all doin' now folks?
Mogambo's is as we all know, a time-tested, legendary and now pretty much iconic Roppongi Bar.
If you are one of those folks who understands the special people magic which has provided this bar its enduring popularity and longevity, then make an effort to shift yourself into the Mogambo's reality for a weekend to remember.
We will see you there!
