Volunteers Needed for Shochu Tasting Event 2/13

JETAANY is helping to recruit volunteers to assist shochu brewery representatives from across Japan at the upcoming “Experience Shochu, the National Spirit of Japan” tasting event at the Astor Center (399 Lafayette Street). This event takes place Monday, February 13 from 2:30-8:30.

Volunteers are needed to fill two shifts:
2:00 – 5:30 — open to industry representatives, i.e. restaurants and press
6:30 – 8:30 — open to consumers

You can volunteer for one or both shifts as your schedule allows. Ability to understand Japanese preferred as most representatives do not speak English and volunteers will be helping explain to visitors the various types of shochu on display. But, there’ll also be a 30 minute orientation to teach more about shochu before each shift begins.

Please contact Kendall Murano (vicepres at jetaany dot org) to sign up or for more information.  Hurry, spots are limited!
