Sake Tasting Seminar by TonariGumi @ Tonari Gumi
Mar 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

On Wednesday, March 4 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Tonari Gumi (101 – 42 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver), Elise Gee, a sake educator and writer who was the first Canadian to receive two certifications in sake conferred by the Sake Education Council, will present a fun and educational evening for everyone to learn about Japanese Sake.  Elise will present an overview and introduction to sake followed by a tasting of some sakes.  She will help guide you in the tasting.  This session meant to be interactive so you can ask questions and share your comments in a quiet and un-hurried atmosphere.  The registration fee is $25 per person.  Total registration numbers are limited so please register by March 2nd by calling (604) 687-2172 or registering on-line.

About Elise:
Elise Gee is a sake educator and writer based in Vancouver, B.C. She was the first Canadian to receive two certifications in sake conferred by The Sake Education Council, having passed her exams at the Japan Sake and Shochu Brewers Association in Tokyo. In 2008, she moved to the U.S. to help establish the first sake brew pub outside of Japan at moto-i, where she was assistant brewer and taught sake classes. Making her own sake, having 7 of those brews on tap was an amazing, enlivening, albeit back-breaking experience she’ll never forget. Now back home in Canada, Elise continues to share her sake love with tastings, seminars and regular dispatches for EatNorth.

Join us for the Donwakai!
The Donwakai is Mokuyokai’s monthly pub night of networking, laughter and fun that brings together those who have a shared interest in Japan-Canada relations. At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 80 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don’t have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.

This month’s Donwakai will be held at the  Relish Gastro Pub & Bar  located in downtown Vancouver at 888 Nelson Street (the corner of “Nelson St. & Hornby St”, inside Nelson Square).

They will have a number of drink specials for us as well as a wide array of food choices. For smooth ordering we recommend you pay by cash. An ATM is available on site.
