It is almost the end of 2010. In Japan, ending and beginning of the each year are the most important events of all. Bōnenkai (忘年会 literally "forget the year gathering"?) is a Japanese drinking party that takes place at the end of the year, and is generally held among groups of co-workers or friends. The purpose of the party, as its name implies, is to forget the woes and troubles of the past year, usually by consumption of large amounts of alcohol. It does not mean that we have to drink at all, but we had a great service and good price on beer and sushi last year at this place that we would like to do it again this coming December.
Come and join us. We would like to know how many are interested in coming first. Last year, we got a large room and we paid about $16 each for all the cost. If we get enough people to sign up by 10th or so, I will reserve a large room again.
And PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL LAST MINUTE UNLESS IT IS EMERGENCY. We need to divide the cost among the attendees. And if you sign up Yes, Please be there for the same reason.
