Our Bonenkai guests enjoyed a relaxing and festive evening at Heritage Hall at the Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church on December 8. The event featured delicious appetizers from Mei Japanese Restaurant, mochi from Cafe Mochiko, a performance of Japanese songs by the Sakura Ladies Chorus, and a trivia game featuring Japanese and American superhero-themed questions. (Thank you to Helen & Steve Rindsberg for creating this fun activity!)
We enjoyed another JASGC Members Happy Hour on June 29 at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse in Cincinnati, with gorgeous views of the Ohio River. Several of our members sampled the Montgomery Inn’s famous barbecue ribs. We enjoyed great food and service from the Boathouse staff, and most of all – great company.
JASGC Members Happy Hours are a great way to get to know other members in an informal setting. As part of our AAPI (Asian-American and Pacific Islander) Heritage Month celebrations in the month of May, we hosted a “JASGC Members Happy Hour” at Taste of Belgium in Rookwood, with 20 of our members in attendance including new members Ruth Shirley and Michael Gallagher. The staff at Taste of Belgium took great care of us, especially Sal, our bartender, and we would certainly like to hold another event there in the future.
A summer happy hour is in the works, and we have scheduled the fall one for September 14 at Big Ash Brewing. Register for the fall happy hour here.
