6/15/17 – June Natsukashii Nomikai


Announcing our FOURTH Natsukashii Nomikai!

Come out Thursday, June 15th, to connect with fellow JET Alumni and FOJ (Friends of JET) over pitchers of Japanese beer, stories of “this one nijikai…”, favorite conbini bentos, and possibly even karaoke! Our May Natsukashi Nomikai was another huge success! Once again we had a dozen wonderful people turn out! This month, Jonathan Slakey is taking us to Wolf & Crane, which if I had to describe in one word, I’d choose: 渋い (tasteful)! Happy Hour is 5-7PM, but we will stay well after that!

Reminisce about the good times, reconnect or meet fellow alumni, 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! Hope to see you there!

When: Thursday, June 15 starting at 5:00PM
Where: Wolf & Crane
366 E 2nd St, Los Angeles, California 90012
