Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor in Japan

Does anyone out there know where might be a good bar / pub in Tokyo to watch the Floyd Mayweather vs Connor McGregor fight this Saturday? If there are any places showing it, that is? Also, can anyone explain to me why there has be sooo little fanfare or coverage about Mayweather vs McGregor in the Japanese media while the rest of the world seems to be going crazy about it? I mean, they are fans of both boxing and various forms of martial arts over here, I thought.

    I think that Floyd Mayweather will be the greatest win! You can watch "DAZN". It's free during one month. https://www.dazn.com/ja-JP

    A few friends of mine plan to go to Legends Sports Bar in Roppongi - they're meant to be broadcasting it there apparently!

    @genkidesu Thanks for that. Can always rely on Roppongi for this sort of thing!

    Did you find somewhere? I was in Ireland when it was on and people stayed up (and out drinking) until 6 am to watch it. You could watch it in any bar. Pity Paddy Foleys closed; they would have shown it for sure!

Good Sparkling Apple Cider in Japan?

This year I have a hankering for a good sparkling apple cider, like Martinelli's, which I usually had around the holidays with my family stateside. I've seen their apple juice at Kaldi Coffee Farm, and it might be sold at Costco, but is there something similar from Japan? I keep seeing grape or melon champagne style sodas for kids to drink around the new year or Christmas, but not apple. Any suggestions / brand names of locally made sparkling apple cider are appreciated!

coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

Effective cold medicine

Always nice to be handed a cold as you enter a 3-day weekend. I've been using the medicine (off the counter) in the image but it doesn't seem to have much clout. Does anyone have an cold medicine that they turn to in Japan that gets to work quickly?

Looking for a good Fat Bike

Hi all, I'm looking for a decent, budget-priced Fat Bike (basically, a mountain bike with fat, 4-inch tires). Anyone know of any good, reliable online dealers for fat bikes (used or new) in Japan? Any Japanese brands you recommend? Thanks!
