It's the big July Pot-luck Picnic Brunch, followed by a trunk show by Rachel D.K. Clark. The club requests a $5 donation from non-members for the meeting itself, and the trunk show is $15 (no registration cap, no membership requirement, it can be signed up for at the brunch).
San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin's Obon is also this weekend, but it's Saturday and Sunday. We've never gone before, but I've heard it's one of the iconic Japanese festivals of the west coast. gurdymonkey wants to go. We could do Saturday after Ms. Clark's trunk show, or we could go Sunday. Just need to pick a day (Sunday is tempting). I figure that rather than dealing with J-town parking, we can park at Curtner Station and right the light rail up to Japantown/Ayer.
