Umami Mart Barware


Yoko and I are showing our true, girly colors by celebrating Hinamatsuri (Girl's Day) at Umami Mart! We had to do it -- Yoko's mom spent over a decade making a traditional ohinasama (ornamental doll) display with five tiers (!) that we felt we absolutely must showcase. Girl's Day in Japan lands on March 3 every year, and is a day to reflect and celebrate a woman's happiness. In general I would say this holiday is meant for younger ladies, but let's celebrate all women this Friday at our Hinamatsuri party!

WHAT:
Hinamatsuri Girl's Day Party with Japanese sweets by Bay Alien and amazake (sweet sake) by Yoko. Plus a five-tier ohinasama doll display hand-made by Yoko's mama.

WHEN: First Friday 3/1, 6-8pm

WHERE: Umami Mart
815 Broadway
Oakland, Pop-Up Hood
BART: 12th Street
