The April sushi meetup will be postponed either one or two weeks. Please vote on which new date you prefer, either April 16 or April 23:http://www.meetup.com/sushi-ri/polls/176371/
The Jewish holiday of Passover begins at sunset on Wednesday, April 8, and continues until sunset on Thursday, April 16. The sushi meetup usually held on the second Thursday of each month would fall in this case on the evening of April 9, which is the second seder of Passover. Although the sushi meetup is obviously not frequented by observant Jews who strictly adhere to kosher dietary laws, I feel it is appropriate to postpone by one or two weeks to prevent conflicts. Some but not all Jews avoid eating rice on Passover.
I want to choose a new date by no later than next week. Please respond to the poll as soon as possible.
If you had already filed an RSVP for the old date, I've canceled it. Please remember to file a new RSVP once the new date is chosen. I've temporarily disabled acceptance of RSVP on the web site until the new date is chosen.
