Meetup details changed: Open Seattle Japanese Language and Culture Meetup

I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

When: Thursday, May 31,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Chiang's Gourmet Restaurant
7845 Lake City Way NE
Seattle, WA 98115

In my mind, there's room for argument on this one: Chiang's is pretty much Seattle's best Chinese restaurant. You'll want to come and eat a bunch of nifty yuba and tofu dishes, some smoked duck, and, if you're brave, some stinky tofu.

We'll order to share, but if you have any favorites or special requests, I'll incorporate them in our order. Pricing usually works out to a bit under $20/person, though it depends on how much Sichuan crab Hiromi wants to eat.

Chiang's is in Maple Leaf, on the way to Lake City, just off the 80th St. exit on I-5 North. Bus access is easy with routes 66, 67, 72, 73 or 522.

If you think you might need a lift home, let me know ahead of time and I'll try to arrange a carpool with someone going your way.

Nijikai will most likely be at the usual standby, Cooper's Alehouse, though there's something to be said for Hudson Public House, if people want to break with routine.


This Meetup repeats every week on Thursday.

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

You can always get in touch with me through my group profile on Meetup.
