Do you ever get that sushi craving? Do you have a love of Asian, Mediterranean, Italian, Polish, Mexican, European and all the other continents? If so, this IS the group for you. The goal of the Sushi, Sake and Beyond group is to bring together all who have a love of new and different cuisines and who have an interest in learning about other cultures.

Being passionate about Sushi, we will always want to go "Beyond" Sushi to India, Africa, France, Germany, Mexico... and any other place members can point us expanding our cultural and culinary horizons.

Look forward to making this a fun group of foodies who meet several times a month. We rely on suggestions from our members about where to set up our events. Please tell your friends/co workers/family or any other sushi or food lovers about this group.

We are always on the look out for those with that special talent of being an event planner/assistant organizer.  After you have made your way to a meetup, consider giving it a whirl.  Write to the organizer anytime and let it be known.

("Sushi /n./ Known to the rest of the world as 'Bait'. - People with this philosophy need not apply ;)
