Summer’s not over until September 21st (at least according to the official calendar), so let’s keep the summer going with a Yukata meetup in Manhattan! Dust off those Yukata and Jinbei!

Meet us at the JAPANFes Summer Festival in East Village. We’ll take a stroll through the festival, enjoy yummy Japanese treats, snap some pictures, and then head out to a couple other bars in the area (still dressed up!).

The tentative route is as follows:
1. McSorley’s
2. Sake Bar Decibel
3. Lucy’s
4. Alphabet City Beer Co.

Feel free to join for any or all of this event! Check our Facebook page for updates on where we are.

No Yukata or Jinbei? You should still join! Feel free to wear other festive garb (happi coats, kitsch t-shirts, etc.) Need help putting on a Yukata? Got an extra Yukata? In need of one? Email Andy at events[at]jetaany[dot]org and he will see what he can do for you.

Check out the photos from last year.

Hope to see you there!
