Next Joshikai: Thursday, 7/8!

July Joshikai: Thursday, 7/8 - Women's Networking Event and Sake Tasting Party

Joshikai is a networking group for Japanese women and women with a
connection to Japan. On Thursday, July 8th, we'll meet for an evening
of networking, girl talk, sake tasting, and delicious Japanese food at
Nombe, a popular new Japanese bar (izakaya) in the Mission. Mingle,
chat and share stories with other women in English and / or Japanese.
Any skill level of Japanese is welcome, and this will be a great
opportunity to practice your Japanese and connect with women who have
similar interests. Feel free to join us whenever is convenient, and
bring friends!

Nombe's owner / sake sommelier Gil Payne and executive chef Nick Balla
have created a special menu just for this event, featuring a
customized sake flight and a delicious menu (including dessert!);
their regular menu will also be available, with items starting at $3.

Nombe just opened in November 2009 and has already been selected by
the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the best 100 restaurants in the
Bay Area - if you haven't tried it, here's your chance!
