Next Week’s Meeting (or lack thereof): Mitsuwa Outing!
Because the university is closed in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, JMAC will not its regularly scheduled weekly meeting. Instead, we will spend an afternoon at Mitsuwa, a store that specializes in Japanese food, books, pastries and more! On Monday, January 18th, JMAC and DCMC (the DePaul Comics and Manga Club) are going on a joint outing to Mitsuwa Marketplace in the northwestern suburb of Arlington Heights.
Meet JMAC President Eric and DCMC President Ariana at Brownstones in the Lincoln Park Student Center between 10:30-11am. At 11am sharp, we will be headed to the Rosemont blue line stop (at approx. 11:45am) in the hopes of catching a 12pm Pace bus to Mitsuwa, so come join us on this holiday adventure with a hearty appetite and bus money~
