Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup

We're visiting Green Leaf in Belltown this week, conveniently located in the secret underground dungeon of the Labor Temple.

We'll order food to share; as usual, if you have any unusual dietary needs, please make a note in your RSVP. We'll at least order some appetizers based on the RSVP count, so please don't be a "no show"; this creates a great deal of complexity for the organizers. Ayako and or Daniel will probably take over for me this week, unless Hiromi kicks Kojiro and me out of the house so that she can have some time to herself with Shidou.

As usual, we'll divide the food bill between us and handle alcohol separately. Please bring lots of crisp paper money so that we don't have to juggle 12 credit cards. The food price is quite reasonable for the quality, but probably will hover close to the $20/person territory.

Bus access is easy with most Queen Anne and some Fremont-bound routes; try 2, 5, 8, 13 or 358. Parking is easiest North of the venue; there is usually street parking available, and some inexpensive private lots if you shop around.

Nijikai will probably be within a few blocks of here, but I'll leave that in Daniel's capable hands, assuming he's coming that night. The Innkeeper might be a good spot, or Bandits.

    I may go to Nijikai, or JK pop tonight, but it is up to the condition, since I will be in Tacoma film festival to see Japanese movie tonight on business.
