UPDATE: The event date has changed to Dec 22nd.
Dear JETAA members,
This year’s JETAA Bonenkai will be once again held at Sekita-san’s restaurant, Koume in Plantation (just outside of Miami). Sekita-san was once the JET coordinator for the Japanese Consulate and helped many of us get into the JET program. He makes delicious food, is a great host, and beware of his “sake bomb.”
As part of the Bonenkai we will report on the events of the past year and solicit ideas about what Florida JETAA can do the future.
This will be a pre-set meal of $20 per person, which involves several courses: soup, salad, appetizers, sushi, other dishes and desert*. You will get a lot of food for that amount of money especially since Japanese food is so expensive. Sekita-san never disappoints!
The cost of drinks and tip are not included into the deal, so you will pay that separately at the end of the event.
This will be a cost-sharing event, meaning that some of the meal will be paid from JETAA funds that will cover part of the meal and you will cover the rest. So the cost can vary depending on how many or how little people come and what drinks you order.
Location: Koume Japanese Restaurant
11905 W. Sunrise Blvd.
Plantation, FL. 33323
(located in the Petsmart Plaza)
Date: December 22nd, 2012 (Saturday)
Please RSVP to Bahia, the deadline to RSVP is Dec 17th . Tell us if you are bringing a guest. You can RSVP by going to http://guestli.st/134238 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Bonenkai 2012. If you RSVP using the link please fill in your name, email, and phone number (optional). Please also include that information if RSVPing by email
I hope you can all make it!
If you RSVP and later cannot make it, please have the courtesy and let us know by Dec 28th, because once we give the final numbers to Sekita-san we have to end up paying for the person who doesn’t show up, which is not fun for those who have to foot your bill.
Hope to see you there!
Bahia (President) and Wendy (South Florida Region Representative)
