Bento Picnic: Fall 2011

October 14th, 2011

Bento Picnic Anime Egg Designs

SIG Bento is a division of SRPE which is devoted to the refinement of tasty foods and the art of fresh-air processing.

Do you eat food on occasion? Do you breath? If so – and you aren’t afraid of a few photons, then you may be interested in this event.

Our purpose is to create Japanese traditional boxed lunches (bento) and then hold picnics. This time the picnic will be held at NCSU’s Arboretum. If weather will not permit us to be outside, we have another on campus option in mind.

The picnic is happening this weekend. We’ll be cooking on Saturday, and the picnic will be held on Sunday (10/16). Please RSVP if you are interested in purchasing food. You’re also welcome to bring your own and join in the festivities.

Details and contact info can be found by following the link below.
