October Meeting: Movie Night – Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Dir. David Gelb, Magnolia Pictures 2012

The Tuesday, October 9th meeting will be a movie night! We will be watching the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi.  Please be in the club room of Livon5th (2201 5th Ave. South, Birmingham, AL) at 6:00pm and if you like, please BYOS (Bring Your Own Sushi) and choice of beverage, adult or otherwise.  In the meantime, you can watch the trailer here.


JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father.

Also, stay tuned for the November and December book announcements. See you Tuesday!
