Origami Japanese Restaurant in Round Rock, Texas
The Texas Shinto Study Group will be hosting a Kimono Dinner Party at Origami Japanese Restaurant on April 21st, 2007 at 7:00 PM. While there will be a short meeting about Shinto in Texas, this is primarily a social get together.
I was recently at Origami to make arrangements. They are excited about us coming to their restaurant dress in Kimono. It looks like there are at least fifteen people on the list so this should be well attended. This is shaping up to be a really fun event!
Here are a few more details:
As this is called a Kimono Dinner Party, please try to wear a kimono or similar traditional Japanese clothing. A keiko gi to with hakama is acceptable. Older period Japanese clothing is good. While not optimal, a hanbok is ok.
Please note that this is not a cosplay event. If you have a cosplay outfit that happens to be a kimono that is all right. However, the idea is to have a classy, semi-formal get-together in Japanese attire. I ask that you please respect what I and the other participants are wanting to do.
Please do not bring any weapons. Yes, katana and wakizashi are very Japanese, but bringing a weapon into a restaurant where alcohol is served can get you arrested.
If you absolutely do not have any traditional clothing but still really want to come, nice, casual clothing or asian styled clothing is ok. After all Origami Japanese Restaurant is open to the public.
If you have not been to Origami before, they have really great Japanese food and a great atmosphere. Some of the wait staff are Japanese so you can practice your Nihongo with them.
