Dear JETAA members,
It’s that time of the year for our annual JETAA Bonenkai!
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 former JET coordinator for the Japanese Consulate and helped many of us get into the JET program. He makes delicious food and is an awesome host!
This will be a pre-set meal of $20 per person, which involves several courses: soup, salad, appetizers, sushi, other dishes and desert. That is a lot of food for that amount of money especially since Japanese food is so expensive. Each year, he surprises us with a unique menu. Last year we had nabe and oden on our menu among other things.
The cost of drinks and tip are not included into the deal, so that would be paid separately by you.
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 21, 2013 (Saturday)
Please RSVP to Wendy, deadline to RSVP is Dec. 13th and tell us if you are bringing a guest. You can RSVP by emailing me at wlo01[at]hotmail.com or on the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1433986693484452/
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. 19th, 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!
FL-JETAA, S. Florida Regional Rep.
