Our after-meeting hangouts are informal and not official Fukuoka JALT events, but are just a good chance to hang out with and get to know other teachers over a meal or a drink. We don't organize any set menus, no RSVPs, just whoever wants to come along can do so and order whatever they like. We'll choose a place each time that allows for your preferred food and/or drinks. Anyone is welcome, even if you don't come to the meeting.
