2014 Florida JETAA Annual Bonenkai

Posted by President

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!

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 $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.

The cost of drinks and tip 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
Tel: 954-577-9277
(located in the Petsmart Plaza)

Date: December 20, 2014 (Saturday)
Time: 6:15pm

Reserve your spot at: http://floridajetaabonenkai.brownpapertickets.com/

Please RSVP to Wendy. The deadline to RSVP is Dec. 13th. Tell us if you are bringing a guest. Purchasing a ticket secures your spot for the event. If you have dietary restrictions or allergies you must inform us by Dec 16th 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.

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.
If you RSVP and later cannot make it, please have the courtesy and let us know by Dec. 16th, because once we give the final numbers to Sekita-san we end up paying for the person who doesn't show up. In other words no refunds of your pre-payment. It will be considered as a donation to the FL-JETAA fund.

Hope to see you there!

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
Tel: 954-577-9277
(located in the Petsmart Plaza)

Date: December 21, 2013 (Saturday)
Time: 6:30pm

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!

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.
