The NYC Japanese Language January Meetup -Shinnenkai

  • January 31, 2014 · 7:00 PM


I am sorry it took a long time to post this. I have been sick since last event and am getting better finally.

Shinnenkai  (新年会=New Year gathering) is another Japanese tradition that involves drinking and eating. 

The J-Meetup shinnenkai will be held at Saburi, a wafu-chuka (和風中華)restaurant. What is wafu-chuka? Read the article below.

Wafu-chuka is very different from American version of Chinese food. Everyone should try once to see if you like it! Saburi serves Japanese beers and sake. 

Join the J-Meetup shinnenkai with delicious wafu-chuka!
