As most people probably now know, Coo Izakaya AND Iori restaurants are out of action due to the fire at the Sydney Building last week. This is a catastrophe for the owner of both restaurants, Aizawa-san, and his staff.
Aizawa-san has been very generous to JETAA Canberra, Australian Japan Society ACT (AJS) and the Canberra Japan Club (CJC) over the years. He has donated meals as raffle prizes for many of our functions. Our JETAA monthly Oshaberikai has been held in Coo for quite a few years.
After discussions between the Committees of our three organisations, we have decided to hold a joint function at Aizawa-san’s other restaurant, Iori Plus, on Tuesday, 4 March at 6:30pm. We have been looking for ways to forge stronger relations between the groups and this will be a great chance to meet some new people who share a similar passion for Japan!
Please note this is a change from our usual “first Wednesday of the month” until we can organise a new regular restaurant.
The cost of the meal will be $30 per person (Iori Plus’s $30 banquet). We have had the banquet before and trust us, you will not be disappointed and we would suggest a light lunch!
JETAA Canberra will also be providing some beer, wine or soft drinks for tables as a goodwill gesture.
The maximum capacity of Iori Plus is 80 people and we are expecting a decent turnout from each group, so RSVP’s by Friday 28th February for this Oshaberikai are a must. First come, first served!
