Learn to Make Sushi!

*** It's a great day to learn, eat, and enjoy sushi! See you there! ***

UPDATE #5: There are still 5 spots left, so you may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 3 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. Make sure to come early with exact cash.

UPDATE #4: The event has been rescheduled to Sat. Mar. 16th, same time, same place. If you are unable to make the new date, please email me NO LATER THAN end of day Wed. Mar. 6th for a full refund.  No refunds will be given after that date. An email has been sent to the Yes RSVPs. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #3: I just found out due to an unexpected medical emergency, the chef that was to teach our class will not be able to.  I'm looking into rescheduling the class.  If you are unable to make the make up date, you will receive a full refund.  An email has been sent to the Yes RSVPs.  I'll keep you posted on the make up date!

UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $50. Looking forward to seeing you there!

UPDATE #1: There are 8 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $40 to $50 when the early bird spots are gone or before Sat. Feb. 23rd (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. Feb. 17th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot.


Ok, let's eat!... and learn how to make sushi!

We have a fun class planned with this one! Come join us at Cafe Asia for a 2 hour demonstration on how to make sushi. Learn the intricacies in the preparation of sushi, using varied ingredients and simple techniques.

Not only that:

  • We will have 4 "rounds" of cooking, where each round demonstrates the preparation and creation of each type of roll.
  • We'll each get to enjoy and eat ALL the rolls we just learned and demonstrated to us!
  • We'll each receive copies of the recipes, detailing the preparation of the rolls demonstrated to us
  • Red and white wine IS included with our meal!


  • Sushi rice
  • California Roll
  • Spicy Tuna Roll
  • Avocado Roll
  • Chef's Choice!
  • (The chef reserves the right to make changes to the menu if need be)

We've got an early bird special for this event of $40! The first 40 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sat. Feb. 23rd (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $50. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early and make payment to get the early bird price!

Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.

Come join us, tell a friend, and let's learn, eat, and enjoy sushi together! =)

Hope to see you there!

- J.T.

P.S.  Please know this is a DEMONSTRATION cooking class, rather than a "hands-on" class (which is much more expensive).


Metro and Parking

Closest Metro is Farragut West (Orange / Blue lines), I suggest metro / cabbing it. I also recommend using wmata for travel plans. Don't forget to account for Metro and traffic delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):

Please follow the instructions below for making payment.  Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out.  Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early.  If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.

  1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"
  2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "rsvp"
  3. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
  4. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
  5. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid.  It’s not required, but you may print out your payment confirmation as a backup.  When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment.  Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license.  Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way.  If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into Paypal (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out.  If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Refund Policy & Ticket Resell

Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is cancelled or rescheduled.  Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend.  I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale.  Work out payment between yourselves, and send us an email letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)

    There was a bit of noise at the venue that seemed like it was going to undermine things, however everything turned out fine. It was fun, the group was about the right size, and everyone was pretty darned full at the end. ~ Even hung out with several people afterwards, so it was a great evening!

    Wait a moment. I'm a vegetarian, and I don't really have $50 extra to spend. However, I have a good friend with a specific medical condition who can only eat raw fish. What should I do?
