Come join us for the Pop-Up Dinner with "Deconstruction" theme.
Deconstruction is not equal to demolition. Instead, it means “breaking down,” breaking something down into small pieces as if we are paying attention to smaller pieces or helping them to be reborn with new purpose… it could be a beautiful and spiritual ceremony to appreciate the past being and celebrate new being.
And we decided to add more aspects to this ceremony; yummy food and connection to Japanese culture.
Throughout the night, we will enjoy different types of “deconstruction” activities followed by a Japanese style Kaiseki dinner and our original secret ceremony.
All benefits will go to the California Wildfire Relief Fund.
