We have added a few luncheons to our calendar. In the past month the members have just been flooding in. The demand for the organizing the demand has finally been won, we now have an Assistant Organizer named Carlos to help with the weekend meetups. Welcome to the crew!

Back to Lunch, seeing I am getting side tracked, Okini on the 14th will be one of our first luncheons and you can find all the details on Central Pa Sushi Meetup.

Wednesday at Okini was the second gathering of the Central PA Sushi lovers group (the first since the name change) and was every bit as good as the March meeting – or so I’m told, since I couldn’t make that nervous blind date on account of me being on the other side of the Atlantic. 

The great thing about Sushi is that it’s so condusive to good conversation. The neat parcels of fresh fish and rice won’t get cold, you can eat it without dribbling spaghetti sauce all down your chin (a speciality of mine, I must admit) and it’s usually presented in such a way as to be a conversation starter in and of itself.

Not that many people on Wednesday had to fall back on the plates before them in order to liven up the evening, for as post-it notes fluttered onto foreheads at the other end of the table, amongst a bluster of hearty wine-fueled laughter, at the “square end” we had a good ol’ chinwag about, among other things, Sushi in London, life in Tokyo and soccer in South America – coversations, I’m sad to say,  I won’t be able to pick up again until June. For everyone else the next get-together will come a touch sooner.

For me, aside from eating great food, it was wonderful to meet new faces and I look forward doing both again in a few weeks.
