I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

When: Thursday, November 1,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Hawaiian Breeze
1719 N 45th St
Seattle, WA 98103

This week, we're eating sushi and/or Hawaiian food, depending on your whims. Taka Sasaki handles the food at Shima Sushi next door, and they'll let us order off of either menu, since both restaurants are connected through a secret, or now not-so-secret, passageway.

You can have some loco moco, chicken or tofu katsu, saimin, a mahi-mahi burger, or conventional or California-ized sushi.

Please bring cash to make settling the bill easier. We'll let people order separately, but I suspect we'll be left with one check, so to keep your organizer sane, make sure you bring a few different denominations. The third person to try to pay with a credit card may lose a limb. Thanks.

Expect a little island time pace as the kitchens are fairly small and the staffing is somewhat limited.

Bus routes 16 and 44 are easy public transport options, and I think there are a few others that get you close enough for a breezy walk (358). Parking is usually not too complicated around here, but do note that some residential streets have special restrictions after 6pm to make it possible for people in 80 year old houses without garages to park their cars on the street.

Nijikai could be at Babalu, if you like that sort of thing, or a nearby Irish-ish pub or Thai bar.

As usual, if you need help finding us, or have any logistical challenges, feel free to call my cell phone at[masked]-0451.


This Meetup repeats every week on Thursday.

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

You can always get in touch with me through my group profile on Meetup.
