Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup

This week we're in Belltown for some "Modern Indian" food, including perhaps their curry crab dip, mango prawns, and stuffed lamb, along with a nice eggplant dish and a few other vegetarian things.

Let me know if you have any unusual dietary restrictions in your RSVP. We must order to share, and we will pre-order, so remember than being a no-show is no good; your choice to surprise us affects the bill for the rest of us.

Bring plenty of green paper money, so that settling the bill is as uncomplicated as 20 people dining together can be. Plastic cards will be greeted with scissors.

Bus access is trivial, or you can break a window on the monorail and jump out at just the right moment. Parking is slightly irritating because it's Belltown and that's the law here, but it happens to be a quiet, relatively bar-free zone, so things aren't as bad as they are a few blocks West.

Drink more afterward at Nijikai if you like, which this week may be at Shorty's if you're in a pinball mood, or Rob Roy if you're in a lounge vibe kind of mood, or Two Bells if you like the smell of stale beer a lot.
