The dog days :土用の丑の日/Doyo no ushi no hi.

On  the day of the ox in midsummer  Japanese have a custom to eat eel which
started in the Edo period to prevent summer fatigue.

土用:
Doyo means 18 days before the first day of each season.Generally speaking, the Ox day during the doyo indicates the summer one, but as the doyo comes around four times in a year, the day also comes around several times in a year.

丑の日:
The day of the ox is named after one of the twelve animals 
of the Chinese zodiac.

ダラスの夏は暑いです。うなぎを食べて元気になりましょう♬

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
