Up early, check emails, etc. Go walking around the hotel. First thing I see is a Starbucks, I'll hit it on the way back. Next to it is a BMW motorcycle dealer, now we're talking. Look at a few Beemers, a guy is test riding a new R1200GS. That a big bike over here, where most bikes are 400cc or under. Walk around some more, there seems to be a Starbucks on every corner... Find a large Japanese book store and spend a while browsing the magazines. Can't read a word, but they have nice pictures. They even have a dozen or so magazines devoted to the Mac or iPod. Cool. Wander back to the hotel, getting a Chai Tea Latte on the way. Off to the gig again.

Show is super early today, doors at 3;30pm and we go on at 6:30pm. It's sold out again and a girl who has been only playing guitar for 6 months is selected to jam with the band. She so nervous she starts playing the wrong chords, no matter Bobby ghosts her parts from offstage, and she sounds great!! After she's given the guitar she's crying so bad we let her sit in guitar world until the encore.

Load out, and it's still not even 9pm. Back to the hotel by 10pm. Call and upgrade my flight home on United to business class. Should be worth it... Off to bed by midnight.
