Every January, the Japan America Society of Minnesota has a Shinnenkai, or New Year’s Celebration. It’s the group’s big event of the year, with Japan-related demonstrations and performances and a bunch of other stuff. It’s a good time.
This year’s Shinnenkai takes place this Sunday, January 16th 2011. I’ll be there with a booth, selling my comics… maybe. It takes place way out in Hopkins, and buses aren’t an option since I’d be lugging a bunch of books (and it’d take two hours one way). So if I can get a ride, I’ll be there. If not, not. :-)
But you, dear reader, should go anyway! It’s a lot of fun.

*UPDATE* Looks like I’ll be able to make it out there. See you there, folks!
