Imagine eating all you want at a restaurant and then walking out the door without paying — only to simply head to another restaurant for more food. I’m not recommending a dine-and-dash situation, it’s an event in Tokyo this weekend.

This Sunday, visitors to an all-you-can-eat event called Machi Perori in the capital’s Shimokitazawa neighborhood will be able to jump between seven different restaurants — eating and drinking as much as they please — all for the price of just one ticket. Participating restaurants will be offering special menus featuring their best or their most popular dishes. Alcoholic beverages will also be available, and live music will keep diners entertained throughout the evening.
