Earlier I posted about getting tickets to the L’arCafe at the Space Shower TV the Diner in Shibuya.  My reservation was for last night and it was awesome.  Space Shower TV the Diner is a pretty cool venue all by itself.  I’d be interested to check it out on a normal night.  If I knew enough people, it’d make a good party venue too.  The entryway has a screen that’s built into the floor and extends up into the counter, which was L’arc en Ciel themed.  The logo moved a different way if you stepped on it.  It was really cool.

Ken’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

Yukihiro’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.  So skinny!

Hyde’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

Tetsuya’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

The costumes from Day 1 of the 20th L’Anniversary Live were also in the entryway, as was the goods table and posters from various points during the band’s career.  Seats were assigned.  We ended up sharing our table with two Japanese girls, who were extremely surprised when we sat down.  They were cute, they knew all the lyrics to the songs and would occasionally bust out hyde moves at the table.  I would wager that everybody who was there went to the 20th L’Anniversary Live in May.

You really couldn’t argue that you weren’t getting your moneys worth here.  In addition to the dinner buffet and dessert buffet, this box was placed at all the seats.  Hyde’s and Ken’s were savory; Tetsuya’s and Yukihiro’s were sweet.  To be honest, I didn’t like Ken’s.  Yukihiro’s was my favorite.

There was a video playing showing various performances in the band’s career with added commentary by the band members.  When the band members were talking, you could hear a pin drop in the restaurant.  I was kind of amused by how quickly the place came back to life when the video ended.  Oh and this happened:

This is weird even for Hyde.

Everyone also got this free plastic cup.  Overall, the atmosphere and the food were very good (there was so much of it!).  So glad I was able to go.

Goods: L’arcafe glass and accessories tray.

I originally went to Esperanza looking for a pair of blue sandals that I saw in the June issue of ViVi, but they didn’t have them.  Picked up these cute pink pumps!  Should I have gone for a more practical color like a neutral?  Probably.  Oh well.

Esperanza, Shibuya 109, B1F. Hachiko exit; bear left. Shibuya 109 is the gigantic silver cylindrical building.

Ahhhhh the 109, place of many a bad financial decision.  I love the energy in the 109; dinky OPA in Kyoto does not compare.  This shirt’s pretty standard in the front, but I like this open draped back.

Egoist, Shibuya 109 4F. Hachiko exit; bear left. Shibuya 109 is the gigantic silver cylindrical building.

Took a much needed trip to Tokyo.  First stop, of course the 109.  Picked up this super comfy sweater from LDS LoveDrugStore.

Their dressing room is also very…uh…interesting?  Click here for twitpic. (nsfw)

LDS LoveDrugStore, Shibuya 109 5F. Exit Shibuya station via Hachiko exit, bear left and cross the Shibuya crosswalk.  Keep going straight, it’s the giant, silver, cylindrical building and will likely have a mass of people entering/leaving it.  If you miss it; you are probably blind.
