4/13/17 – April Natsukashii Nomikai!

Announcing our SECOND Natsukashii Nomikai!

We kicked off our monthly happy hour on March 2nd, and I’d say it was a smashing success! First time participants, long-time alumni, JETAASC officers, coordinators, and old friends met for a fun and chill session, over discounted draughts, sake flights, and sushi!

Once again JET alumni are invited to wax nostalgic at a different Little Tokyo establishment on Thursday, April 13th: Izakaya Gazen!

Reminisce about the good times, reconnect or meet fellow alums, and maybe discover your new, favorite, Japanese watering-hole in Little Tokyo, all while helping to support these small businesses one drink at a time!

Don’t drink? Don’t worry! Whatever you put in your cup, all are welcome to join!

When: Thursday, April 13th, 5:30-9:30PM
Where: Izakaya Gazen
362 E 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90012-3902
