Singles Mingle at Nakayoshi Gokon

Now we know all of you joined Nakayoshi because you want to do some good in the community right? Wait, you wanted to meet other (single) people too?

Don't worry, we get it. That's why Nakayoshi had our first Gokon last Thursday evening at Pisco Latin Lounge. Put together by Nakayoshi committee member Emily Leach, she and some of our fun (and very eligible) singles got to mix it up and get to know one another over some delicious drinks, appetizers and laughter.

For those of you unfamiliar, a Gokon is basically a kind of group blind date that's practiced in Japan these days. It'll typically be set up with a group of guy friends and a corresponding group of girls seated across from each other to hold conversations or play casual games to help ease nervousness and get people to meet new people in a relaxed environment.

We'd love to have more of you single people come out the next time we put a Gokon together. Come on now, don't be shy! You never know who you might meet, or learn about your new friends!

For those of you looking for another chance to go out with Nakayoshi for a fun night out, don't forget about our monthly mixer coming up this Friday night starting at Kilowatt in SF's Mission District! For any of you that want to get more involved and help us plan more social events or other activities, come on out to our meeting this Sunday in San Francisco Japantown. E-mail nakayoshi.ncwnp@gmail.com if you need more info. See you guys on Friday!
