Do Chinese use 就是 like "like"? I heard this sentence spoken by a 20 something male: 我觉得就是晚上就是北京就是喝酒就没有别的什么事儿。Which I think is translated as In Beijing we go drinking at night because there isn't anything better to do.

Yes, I think so. It seems he is using 就是 to fill the gaps in his speech while thinking, and then gradually adding more information to the sentence...

For this challenge I will be using a vlog on YouTube by Ah Fu Thomas. I first listen to the vlog without subtitles, then with English subtitles. Then I listen again to portions of the vlog reading the Hanzi and matching it up to what is actually being said. Finally, I do a dictation exercise of writing the Hanzi as the dialogue is played. Today's vlog shows Ah Fu Thomas interviewing randome people in Beijing who are on the streets at 3AM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW10UYiPDXc
