New Meetup: Bonen-kai: end-of-year get together dinner

Announcing a new Meetup for San Diego Japanese Language & Culture Group!

What: Bonen-kai (end-of-year get together dinner)
When: Monday, December 29,[masked]:30 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!

2008 is almost over!

As every year draws to a close, Japanese people get together and celebrate the occasion with BONENKAI parties.

BONENKAI literally translates to "forget the year party", and groups of Japanese friends or co-workers will meet up throughout December to eat and drink, especially in order to forget their troubles of the previous year. If you are an avid business person working in Japan, you have to attend at least 5 to 10 BONENKAI business parties. There is a lot of drinking involved. :)

For us, let's celebrate BONENKAI, Japanese Meetup Group style! We're going to meet at Walmido, an elegant Korean restaurant located centrally on Convoy Street. We know the chef there (who previously worked at Sammy Sushi) and last time he prepared for us a combination of Korean and Japanese fare, including delicious tempura and sashimi. The restaurant is clean, spacious, and comfortable.

The menu and price is fixed (*), so all you have to do is show up, chat, eat, and have a great time!! Because there is limited seating, I am disabling "maybe" reservations for now.

I hope to see you there!

(*) Price will change depending on RSVP count, but max $15 per person. This price includes food and tip, but not drinks.

Learn more here:

P.S. If you'd like to attend but have transportation concerns, either getting to the restaurant or getting back home, please contact me directly at [address removed], and depending on where you live, I'll see what I can do.
