Foot Road Map
It is said that all things in your body are magically and spiritually somehow connected to your feet. And for non-believers, here is the road map. You will see these diagrams at most any foot massage place in Taiwan.
If there are any questions as to how this all works, I'm quite confident that the soon-to-be rich and famous Dr. Foot fetish of Perth, Australia would be more than willing to field them....
Chinese kama-sutra while you powder your nose
Don't get too excited... it''s just a lounge/restaurant (China Bar) that depicts the chinese version of the ways of the kama-sutra in their bathrooms (yes, I went into both just to make sure). The rest of the establishment is quite quirky too. I think they're trying to outdo Sofa, seeing that they are practically next to eachother and there's almost always no seats at Sofa on weekends. I haven't tried the food yet, but I will.

Jazz Bar experience in Taipei
Brown Sugar is the most known Jazz bar/cafe in Taipei. You can go for a drink or for food as well with live music in the evening. The band seems to be residante in this club but I did see occasionaly new bands.
The music is good but the public does seem more interested in what they have in their plate than the live show.
It is quite noisy with the catering in the background but it is still a rathe good night out - that is if you like Jazz music. They have bouncers but it is very rare to be refused in a place in Taipei - especialy if you look Western.
I do not think there is a dress code but I would not consider going to this place in shorts. if you do and get bounced you can always go downstrairs to Roxy 99 (they owner) where beer is poored continuously and the atmesphere less strick.
