Hello everyone!

If you enjoy both Japanese and French cuisine, Maison Akira could be the ideal restaurant for your taste buds! The chef/owner is Japanese and studied his craft in Japan and France. I've read and heard some great things about this place so, if you can, please join me for a satisfying Sunday brunch in March!

Since this is my first time organizing a Meetup, I won't have a gender balance requirement and the # of attendees is tentative at the moment (will consider increasing attendance based on interest). Brunch price is $36 (not including tax/gratuity) or $39 if you wish to include a glass of champagne. I realize the price tag is a little high, but it's also "all you can eat" :-)))

I'll send final details to all attendees closer to date. After brunch, walking off the calorie load in Old Town Pasadena would be an option.

UPDATE: Total expected to pay per person is about $40 including taxes. Please bring cash.

    Thank you ALL for coming!!! Those who came for Akira and those who came for the drinks portion. It really was a blast. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people for my first Meetup event! :-)

    All - Apparently, there's parking in the lot next door to the restaurant (free validation at the restaurant for 1 hour and $1 for each 30 minutes thereafter). Distance between Akira and Equator (our next stop for those who choose to go) is about a mile. Second venue is right in the heart of Old Town so I suggest we park our cars closer to Equator and then stroll around for Happy Hour. We can discuss as a group at brunch.

    @Jaewon & Christopher - I sent you both an email. Please confirm your attendance so I can adjust my reservation accordingly.

    Hope everyone is as hungry as I am this morning!

      If I remember correctly, there's parking lot that has 90 minute free parking on Fair Oaks and Green Street for the after event

  • Raymond T.

    Guess what y'all? Old Town Pasadena is having a celebration of extended Happy Hour for this weeks of March! $1 martinis at Equator, $2 beers at Pita Jungle, and $3 gourmet sushi at Sushi Roku and Kabuki ... live music and more! Let's go here after??

    Sure Jay! :-) 15 stair laps for you (jogging pace) and just 6 for me (SNAILING nearly DYING pace). Thank you for signing up to the brunch!

    February 11, 2013

    • Jay

      It will give me another reason to do 5+ more laps. Of course someone may need to carry me to the restaurant.

      February 11, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
