Event description


Ramen Night is Back!

JETAADC’s annual JET Talks event, Ramen Night, is back and bigger than ever! Come for the delicious noodles and stay for the talk from our host, ramen expert, and fellow 10+ JET, Joshua Beatty (Saga 99-01), and learn about the history and techniques behind the bowls.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of this event, we will be offering two seperate 2-hour time slots this year. Choose between 5:30PM-7:30PM or 8:00PM-10:00PM, and bring an empty stomach to slurp your way through the two full-sized bowls of ramen that come with your ticket and one free drink redeemable at the cash bar. So when you're full on ramen, why not try our signature, chuhai-inspired cocktail, specially created by JETAADC and Tastemakers for the event? Non-alcoholic drinks are, of course, available.

Ramen menu will include three of Joshua's traditional tonkotsu ramen styles (Kurume, Tonkotsu Shoyu, and Northern Nami), a vegeterian Miso (egg optional), and of course the spicy garlicy bowl called, "I'll sleep on the couch."

Stick around for Josh’s JET Talk at 7:30pm, and at the end of the night, take home a bottle of Josh’s homemade ramen chili oil as a souvenir.

We've also moved locations: Ramen Night is now being held at Tastemakers, a hip community kitchen for food entrepreneurs & startups located right in the heart of Brookland.

Tickets will be going fast, so make sure you buy yours soon! Former JETs and Friends of JET are welcome!

Access Information

Tastemakers (2800 10th St NE, Washington, DC 20017) is accessible via car or metro.

Coming by Metro: take the Red Line towards Glenmont and get off at Rhode Island Ave. Tastemakers is about a 10 minute walk north from the stop.

Parking: there is plenty of street parking around the venue. There are also some free limited spaces at Noyes Education Campus parking lot (2725 10th St NE, Washington, DC 20018), which is about a 2 minute walk away.

Please Note

You must check in with the JETAA volunteer to recieve a colored wristband when you enter Tastemakers. This will give you access to the special test kitchen where the event will be held during your alloted time frame.

Your wristband will only give you access during your alloted time frame. If you stay past your time frame, a volunteer will politely ask you to leave so we can give everyone who purchased a ticket the opportunity to have some tasty ramen.

You will have regular access to Tastemakers space as long as it's open. The only restricted access section is for JETAADC's Ramen event.

The test kitchen does not have seats - we are using the "Tachigui" or "standing" ramen eating style. There are seats available outside of the test kitchen if you need one.
