The day began with me waking up puzzled as to why my head was ringing so loudly. After a few rings, I picked up the telephone receiver and was invited out for a friendly game of golf. I was on a six-hole golf course a few hours later, equipped with the confidence of holding my own on a Crazy Golf date last year (won the game, lost the girl). Missed puts, broken clubs and mass ball searches were the order of the day. A few hours in the sun trying to bat a little ball into an equally miniscule hole tends to get one in the mood for a little of the bubbly. To get some decent eats and watch the British Lions-Australia Rugby match on the big screen, we made M&M News Cafe our first port of call.
M&M News Cafe is located on Hua Mei Street, in the canal district (near Napoli). It has become a popular spot for sports enthusiasts to watch the wide wide world of sports via satellite. We got there early and ordered some tasty chicken burritos (NT$160) and a beer. (NT$100). There was standing room only as game time approached. One of my friends raved about the eye-catching posters that adorned the bathroom walls. Around the bar, people could be seen eating Indonesian, German and Taiwanese fare. As the game began, customers came up from the games room where they were playing pool and pinball.
I was caught eavesdropping on a man who was informing his significant other about the rules to Rugby. Being a virtual novice to the game I was very interested, but when he looked over to me in mock frustration of the questions he was answering I nodded in agreement. After being completely confused by what I was watching, I decided to remain mute and smile when my friends cheered and frown when they groaned. There was enough singing and chanting to have one thinking they had just joined in on a church service.

In the end, the Australians were victorious. There was talk of stinging eyes due to an archaic air-conditioner, and the service was obviously stunted by the large crowds. M&M gets four Taiwan beers out of a possible six. It's a bar with all the toys. Have a good one.

Unfortunately, this establishment has closed down
