November Joshikai: O! Izakaya and Film Screening in Japantown!

November Joshikai: Happy Hour and Film Screening in Japantown!

Thursday, November 11th!

Joshikai is a networking group for Japanese women and women with a connection to Japan. On Thursday, November 11th, we'll meet in Japantown for a happy hour, followed by a screening of a short film by a local Japanese American director.

We'll meet from 6 to 8 pm at O! Izakaya in Japantown for networking and girl talk. Beer is $5 and cocktails start from $6. As always, this is a great opportunity to practice your language skills (Japanese and English) and connect with women who have similar interests.

At 8 pm, we will head to Viz Cinema for a screening of "The Virtues of Corned Beef Hash," a new film that explores the friendship between a Japanese American veteran and a half-Japanese journalist. The 20-minute film was filmed entirely in San Francisco's Japantown, by a local cast and crew. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, and a reception with cake, food and wine, open to all who attend the screening. The event is free, with a $10 suggested donation; some proceeds will benefit the non-profit Japanese American community newspaper, the Nichi Bei Weekly.

For more information, visit the film's website:

Feel free to join us only for drinks, or only for the screening, or for both - and bring friends!
