Koshogatsu

Postby shinzou » Sun 01.28.2007 12:49 pm

So, there's a Koshogatsu (Japanese Little New Year) going on at one of our universities downtown today, and I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to go. It sounded fun; martial art demos, food, crafts, taiko drummers, etc. Best of all, admission is free. What do you think?

Don't listen to Mike. I went last year and it was great. But I don't recommend the takoyaki. It was a little stale.

. . .

Actually, my favorite part about this thread is that the OP doesn't give the univ. name, city, state, or even country. ;)

I never said it wouldn't be great.

I merely questioned how we were supposed to make a subjective assessment of whether it would be worth going or not. I have no idea how much he would or wouldn't enjoy it.

It's sort of like the old joke, "Hey you know how it feels when you have to pee really bad?"
"Yeah"
"Stick your hands down my pants and tell me if I have to"

"It sounded fun..." - but... what happend?

If you have something else "funner" to do, then skip it. If ur at home watching American Idol, then go to the festival. How are we supposed to know if its fun or not when theres nothing to compare it to.

It doesnt have to be fun, just the combination of the words japanese, food, and free should be reason alone to go (and big plus to be able to chow down something while watching some kung fu fightinggggg).
