I just received a text from Megumi-San at Cafe Japone. I am in shock but Cafe Japone is closed for good.
I've switched the venue to Cafe Asia for now. I hope this works for tomorrow. If you think you won't be coming, please change the RSVP accordingly since I will need to give Cafe Asia an accurate number of people instead of ballpark figure.
Once again, I sincerely wish Kenji San the best of luck!
/////THINGS TO KNOW/////
I have been trying to contact Kenji-San the owner at Cafe Japone for a few weeks to make a reservation for the 8/27 nomikai. I've called, left several voice messages, and even text messages but didn't get any response. I find it unusual because he is normally very responsive on our reservation requests. So as of now, we do not have a reservation and I am not sure if the staff at Cafe Japone are even aware that we are coming on 8/27 let alone extending the happy hour through 10 pm as it always has been. I didn't cancel the nomikai because Cafe Japone can easily accommodate a large group like us without reservation nor do we need chairs. So the nomikai is still on but no guarantees on the happy hour. And I won't be there so I would like to ask the members who are going to the nomikai to speak to Kenji-San that I've been trying to contact him. I just hope that he is okay. That's all I want to know!
Have fun there and see you guys at the next nomikai!
