(English) Presidio Slow Food – Salvatore & Silvio’s Dinner Party

(English) Friends, Fukuokans, countrymen, lend Salvatore your ears. You are all invited to a special summer dinner party! With the recent petition to have the artistry of Neapolitan pizza-making recognised by Unesco as an Intangible Heritage of Humanity, what better time to celebrate the food of Naples? Be transported to sunny, beautiful Naples with every mouthful (skipping the expensive air fare), and enjoy some true regional-style cooking. Salvatore Cuomo will be whipping up a meal made with farm-fresh vegetables (many from local Italian farmer, Silvio Carannante), tender meat and succulent fish, all sourced right here, in Kyushu. The event will take place in Salvatore’s Hakata Market, just steps from Hakata Station, where you can also buy delicious ingredients to take home and whip up your own Italian feast. Meet Salvatore, Silvio and many others at this special feast!

(English) Silentrips

(English) Fukuoka’s first ever silent disco will be boogieing its way into With the Style on the 17th July. But Silentrips isn’t just your average silent disco; besides drawing in top artist, DJ AKAKAGE to headline, the evening will also feature VJ Toshi, of Happy Film, spinning a mixture of music and psychedelic art. Last but most definitely not least, award winning digital artist Murakami Hiroshinante – who has designed animations for MTV and the Softbank Hawks – will be showcasing some of his new works. If you need a break from the dancefloor, there’ll be lots of fun and pampering going on elsewhere: a magic show, a photo booth, a manicure corner, and a hair & make-up studio for those last minute touch-ups. For those of a more arty nature, there’ll be a photography exhibit and the latest in projection mapping (projecting images and videos onto objects). And you can enjoy all of this with cocktails, craft beers and sweet treats in hand. The plan is for this to be the first in a series of silent discos, occurring once every three months. But if you want to be one of those to inaugurate Silentrips, you had better reserve tickets online: there’s a maximum capacity of 300 people for this event.

(English) Fukuoka Canada Day Report 2015

(English) The sun was shining, the maple syrup was flowing, and 783 party-ers gathered at Tenjin Monolith to become honorary Canadians for the night. This year’s Canada Day was better than ever with succulent lobster tails free for the first 300 guests and delicious, salty poutine being served late into the night. Pork, beef and maple syrup-slathered ice cream were all on offer, and greedily snapped up by the celebrators.
We were lucky enough to play host to native Canadian Neil McDaniel, a nominee for a Canadian folk music award…
