Dear JETAA members,
It’s that time of the year for our annual JETAA Bounenkai!
This year’s JETAA Bounenkai will once again be held at Sekita-san’s restaurant, Koume in Plantation (just outside of Miami).
The agenda is to network and meet new and old JET alumni and build a stronger JETAA community in Florida to foster cultural exchange with the US and Japan.
This will be a pre-set meal of $25 per person (plus service fee of $0.99 per ticket + 3.5% of ticket price for a total of $26.87). This price includes the price of the pre-set meal, tax and tip for the meal.
The meal includes several courses: soup/salad, appetizers, sushi, other dishes and dessert. 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.
The cost of drinks and tip for the drinks are NOT included into the deal, so that would be paid separately by you.
Location: Koume Japanese Restaurant
11905 W. Sunrise Blvd.
Plantation, FL. 33323
(located in the Petsmart Plaza)
Date: Saturday, December 22, 2018
Purchase your ticket now!
Please also RSVP to Wendy by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to RSVP is Dec. 20th. Purchasing a ticket secures a spot for the event. If you have dietary restrictions or allergies you must inform us by Dec 20th or else the restaurant will not be able to accommodate you.
You must pay in advance and you cannot bring a surprise guest the day of the event. Please let us know ahead of time if you are bringing a guest and pay in advance for them as well.
We are selling tickets to the event to avoid issues of people not coming at the last minute. In those cases, JETAA must pay for the meal. Therefore there are unfortunately no refunds for tickets purchased. However, you can sell your ticket to someone else via brownpapertickets.com if you can’t make it. Any funds not used will be considered as a donation to FL-JETAA and will be used for future events and activities.
Sekita-san’s restaurant is small, so space is limited. He also asks that you arrive on time, because food will be served promptly as scheduled. Think of this as Japan, be on time!
Hope to see you there!
