Last minute trip to tokyo, first time - need some help!

Hi all,

I booked a last minute trip to meet up with my friends in Tokyo (coming from New York) - leaving today and will be there for 4 full days. There are 5 of us total, none of us have ever been (or speak any japanese). I really want to maximize my time and experience as much of the varied Japanese cuisines as possible. Obviously, we don't have any reservations and I am nurvous not speaking any japanese will make it difficult to navigate the city and find restaurants to go to. Does anyone have any tips for us in terms of getting to try a varied amount of authentic restaurants? We don't need to go to any of the high end places, but i'd like to have the chance to have great sushi, yakitori, soba, ramen, beef, and more traditional japanese cooking while in Tokyo. If anyone has any help/insight for me, i would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you.

A few Charleston questions

Hi all - had a few questions for the Charleston experts on the board.

Heading down to Charleston this weekend and will be in town for basically 36 hours. I'll be there with 3 friends (coming from New York City) and I'm hoping to get them out to one of the more acclaimed restaurants in Charleston for one dinner (they are not really 'food' guys). I had been looking at McGrady's, Husk, Fig, Cypress and a few others in that range but having trouble pick one. I think we would be more comfortable at something on the more casual end but still with high end food...does McGrady's fit that bill? If not would you recommend something different? We are all in our mid 20s so if anything is particularly stuffy I would like to avoid it.

Also, if you think there is anything else in Charleston (be it food or anything else worth visiting/seeing) I would really appreciate your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
