Loft has HUNDREDS of amazing games to choose from!

For our second event, we’d thought we’d mix things up with a dice roll or two at Ottawa’s own THE LOFT Board Game lounge! Come join us Saturday afternoon for some fun and games with friends.

This event is limited to JET alumni and plus-ones. 

After playing the afternoon away, we’ll also be having a nijikai (after party) in the classic Japan fashion: karaoke! 

Only interested in one or the other? That’s fine – just RSVP for the activity you like.

If this sounds like something you’d want in on, please RSVP here and fill out the form to let us know who all will be coming!

The details:

Cozy up with us over board games at The Loft Board Game Lounge. With hundreds of games to choose from, including the very latest releases, you’re in for an action-packed afternoon.

On a rare sunny and beautiful January day, 12 JET Alumni and friends enjoyed skating on the Rideau Canal and eating Beaver Tails while reminiscing about their time in Japan. Following this we ate west coast-style Japanese food at “J: Unique Kitchen,” a new Japanese Restaurant in Ottawa, and then spent 3 throat-destroying hours singing Karaoke at PopStar Karoke! 超楽しかった!

Happy New Year! あけましておめでとう!

It’s January again and although it’s cold out, JETAA Ottawa is always keen to put on events. This month’s event is skating on the canal and then dinner at a neat new sushi restaurant. If there’s interest, we’re also considering going to karaoke after dinner too.

Feel free to join all or any parts you’d like of the event. (Just remember to RSVP, please.)

Skating

It’s skating season and where better to skate in Ottawa than on the Canal! Once again, if you don’t have your skates, we will be subsidizing skate rentals for JET alumnus and a plus one. We welcome all participants, including and especially kids!

Meet Up

Dinner

After skating, we’ll also be hosting a dinner at J:unique Kitchen, a brand new sushi restaurant. It’s a hot venue so let us know if you’ll be joining us so we have enough chairs.

Senpai-Kohai Pub Night

Our annual Senpai-Kohai Pub Night is upon us. It's a prime time to get the real wisdom from the JET alumni who have gone before you. It's not just the alcohol, but also great advice that will pour out freely, as you prepare to embark on your Japan journey! Of course non-alcoholic delicious beverages and great pub food will also be enjoyed.

Current JET Alumni, put on your best senpai smile (or smirk) and see off the starry-eyed out-going JET's.
