The depicted is not a regular event or an ongoing promotion. In 2010, IKEA staged a promotion called In Bed with IKEA at the Olympia concert hall in Paris, in which the seats were replaced with a new bed and mattress line they were promoting. In late 2014, they staged a similar event called Cinema of Love at Kinostar De Lux in Khimki just outside Moscow. ...

It's a pub staffed by Filipina hostesses. All offer drinks and conversation, most do karaoke (Filipinos love their karaoke!), some have dancing and shows. The term itself doesn't connotate sexual services, although the virtue of some ladies may well be negotiable after-hours. The phenomenon started when the bursting of Japan's economic bubble led to a ...

It's not quite the same but a similar style of venue recently opened in Budapest. http://budaeg.com/?id=bed_movies&next_language Their "beds" don't have the abundance of linen shown in the photo; it's more of a very, very deep lounge than a bed. But they still look pretty comfortable and you have the option of having food delivered to your bed during ...

While I cannot pinpoint a specific show that sells tickets online to foreigners, I would like to give you a bit of background about what issues there are to join such shows in general. I hope this will give you a perspective and some pointers for what to look for specifically. Participation There are often foreigners participating in Japanese TV shows. One ...

A visa application and its supporting documents are like a Jigsaw puzzle, most of the things need to align correctly and sit in properly before they even start to look at whether to refuse or to accept this application. There is no rocket science involved, its plain simple everyday logic that can do you in. For example, you mention you have big savings and ...

I'm an undergraduate in Korea (South). Quick answer for your question is "impossible" though you can find some people "acting" kisaeng (-_-?!) There are 2 types of kisaeng in korea nowadays Real kisaeng They are who really worked(?) as kisaeng until 1940's but not anymore since kisaeng has become illegal "job" (1945 I can't find the exact bill related at ...

Yes you can. There are still some in Taipei. U2MTV is one of the chains. You can pick the movie you want from the shelf (they're all legit copies, btw), then check out and pick a room. You can also order food from them for you to enjoy. Just FYI, it's popular among teenagers because of the private suites... and you could guess what they might be doing in ...

Your destination of choice is here in the UK. Based in an old London tube station is the one and only Pillow Cinema.

It's not that hard. The audience at pantomimes is mostly children (and their grandparents) many of whom will be going to the theatre for the first time, so the performers keep it simple. The heroes are good and the baddies are obviously bad. The "fourth wall" is not just broken, but largely ignored, and the performers address the audience directly to tell ...

The Fairlee Motel & Drive-in Theater (in Fairlee, Vermont) is a motel with an attached drive-in cinema. The motel rooms have large windows facing the movie screen, and speakers for the audio. Motel is open all year, but the drive-in theater is seasonal.

While there are many dedicated and local sites that you can find for concert listings, I find that Last.fm's Events section usually has everything. Especially for large cities like New York, Toronto, and Montreal it will definitely cover everything, no matter how esoteric your music tastes are. And if you 'scrobble' your listening to Last.fm, it can even ...

In Australia, in Sydney, the closest to this would be Govinda's Movie Room in Darlinghurst, which is walking distance from the city centre or Kings Cross. Downstairs is an all you can eat Indian vegetarian buffet restaurant. I believe it was run by the Hari Krishnas but I'm not sure that it still is. It's good but not as cheap as other Hari Krishna ...

There are a variety of games that can be played by passing pieces of paper around, which you could do quietly and discretely. A quick search for "pencil and paper games" or "paper passing games" indicates some that work with more than two players (or pair up and have a few games going at once). Some are more strictly "games" with an element of strategy, ...

I've owned/operated a few 'smart' TV sets and invariably their firmware sucked: the UI was horrible, the interface was slow, few formats were supported, built-in subtitles failed to load, etc. Therefore the only real solution is to take an HDMI-capable device in your luggage. This can be a phone with an HDMI port, a laptop, a tablet, or a separate 'TV Box'. ...

I did some "googling" and the only thing I cam up with was this blog: http://culturadoam.blogspot.com.br/ (Portuguese) This is the cultural agenda of the Amazonas region, as it seems, where the theatre is included. It seems that the "Festival Amazonas de Ópera" is currently on the theater. I talked to a friend that was there very recently and she confirmed ...

I've been told that onsen geisha still exist on the web site Immortal Geisha. Another place to see onsen geisha is Higashiyama Onsen, which is in Aizu Wakamatsu, Fukushima province. (Thanks Immortal Geisha user Hisayakko) I had dinner with two geishas from Higashiyama Onsen there. I booked an evening with geishas via the Higashiyama Onsen Tourism ...

"Onsen Geisha" is rather a locality issue than a "what do they do" issue. Towns that are famous for onsen have sometimes stage shows in hotels that anyone who visits can see. Example: http://www.atami-furuya.co.jp/geisha/ You can however just as well have a private performance such as in this place: http://www.horita-spa.com/party.html If you want to ...

Firstly It's legal to see dancing girl but it is not socially accepted in Northern part specially Swat and surroundings. Though they are not eliminated they still exist but Taleban stopping them as suggest this BBC story. And of course it is not impossible, It's a matter of value how much you give them. But reference can also work.

How about you play the game of meditation (here's a link from a quick google, if you insist on an app). Sit silently, breathe and focus on breath. Raise your levels of consciousness and everybody wins.

I presume you’re looking for something in English. The main English-language listings magazine in Tokyo is called Metropolis (メトロポリス). The concerts section includes some J-Pop: http://metropolis.co.jp/listings/concerts/?concerts=1

There's a Facebook page for Airsoft Cluj, which I imagine would be a great source of expert knowledge in the area, if you were to ask for maybe some people to meet up with. This is assuming you need a club. If you're just looking for a field, I'm worried the question may be too broad and may need additional detail.

I'm not completely sure if this was what the OP was talking about (or if it is even on topic). I was under the impression that (traditional) onna kengeki (女剣劇, lit. women sword theater) was a form of chambara drama (a form of martial arts drama) and taishu engeki (popular theater known for male cross-dressing) derived from shinkokugeki (lit. new national ...

Sometimes a tourist in London may be interested in seeing a film which has been released in the UK, but will not be released in their own country until some point in the future. Alternatively, a business traveller may be 'stuck' in London for the weekend and may opt to spend part of their weekend catching up on the latest films. In both of these cases, ...

So you want to watch a great movie strapped to a uncomfortable seat, while the person in front of you reclines his seat and crushes your feet, on a small crappy screen, interrupted by PA announcements, with babies crying, people coughing and farting and constant engine sound in the background. The answer is no, not yet. You have to wait a few more months, ...
