Hi Guys,

In sprit with "White Day" on March 14th in Japan, the theme of the 3/17 event will be

"White Day"!

"White Day is a romantic holiday celebrated in Japan: one month exactly after Valentine’s Day. In Japan, women are supposed to give men romantic gifts on Valentine’s Day, while men are supposed to return the favor on White Day." (Wisegeek.com)

So....Gentlemen, please feel free to bring White chocolates

Looking forward to many Japanese-style White Day participants!

I met some very open and friendly culture adventurers who make you feel more than welcome. doumo arigatou gozaimasu. I really need to study more to be able to participate better. kore tte, Nihongo de dou ittara ii no? Arakaruto ni shiyou ka na... sugoi tenki desu ne! I would have liked to stay longer. 'bout that noisy table...now I know where my drink went! ;)

    Definitely a great time and great food. Sorry for our table being too loud, it must have been all the beer and chocolate. :P

    I'd suggest to make this a "Featured Meetup" event so people can see it better.

    There is no cover charge for this event. If you are new to this meetup or you haven't paid the semi-annual due for $5, please pay it on line or in person in the beginning of the event.

    Riki is a "izakaya" which is a Japanese tapas bar. Please check it out by clicking below. http://www.yelp.com/biz/restaurant-riki-new-york

    The prices of food and drinks are reasonable.
