Time for our final Twushi of 2016 - Twistmas Twushi!
Will we see Saint Twicolas?
Will we see a Ghost of Twistmas Past?
How about a Twistmas Twift Twixchange? Gag gifts only, $7-$8 max. Bring a gift to get a gift - and we're doing it with a Twist - of course!
- Each participant buys a max $7-8 gift (joke gifts are fun...)
- You wrap it and keep it a secret...
- Bring your gift to the party and put it in the middle of the table
- Each participant draws a number
- Number 1 picks a gift and opens it
- Number 2 picks a gift and decides if they want to open it or take a gift from somebody who has opened theirs in exchange for the unopened gift
- Repeat until each participant has a gift!
It’s the stealing from others that is fun, so keep that in mind....
Book early, seats disappear for Twistmas Twushi fast!!
What is Twushi? Twushi is where Twitter meets Sushi.
The first Halifax #Twushi night was Feb. 26th 2009 – at Minato Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Halifax, NS.
This name/concept was started during a Twitter conversation in reaction to the whole “Tw-ifying” of words (due to the growing popularity of Twitter). A few of us wanted a tweet-up for sushi. So, as a joke – Twitter + Sushi = Twushi and the sushi tweet-up was named! These continued to be held semi-regularly through early 2009 but as the popularity grew, so did the request for more regular Twushi events.
Now, Twushi events are normally held once a month, at a local Sushi Restaurant, in Halifax or Dartmouth. If you're on Twitter, please remember to follow @TwushiHfx
Please only rsvp if you are 100% sure you will be attending. At least 24 hour notice for cancellations.
For example, we once had a reservation made for 16 and only 4 people showed up. Embarrassing for your organizers and not good for the restaurant that had the extra seating set aside (perhaps even turn away walk ins), extra staff called in and special rolls made for the expected large group.
As we frequent the same restaurants several times a year (not all great sushi restaurants have seating to accommodate our large group), we want it to be a good experience for all involved, including the restaurant owners, so they continue to welcome us back with open arms..
Our wonderful host restaurants often bring in extra food and bring on extra staff for the weeknights we book in. When people cancel last minute, or are no shows, that hurts the restaurants that are so very good to us when we come.
Those who are No Shows or only give notice of cancellation the Day Of the Event will not be saved a seat at the next Twushi event.
Your event organizers are Carolyn @iTeedee/@TwushiHfx and Helen @helenfong
