SAN FRANCISCO — The Nikkei Lions Club will host the 22nd annual all-you-can-eat Crab & Spaghetti Feed on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 5 to 9 p.m. (dinner served until 7 p.m.)  at Buddhist Church of San Francisco, 1881 Pine St. (at Octavia).

In addition to cracked crab and spaghetti, the menu includes garlic bread, salad, dessert, tea and soft drinks. There will also be bingo with prizes.

Proceeds will benefit the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival Queen Program and the George Washington High School Dragon Boat Team.

“One of the highlighting aspects of our program are the beautiful furisode kimonos that all court members get to wear, and for many this program was the first chance to ever wear such an elaborate piece of culture,” said a spokesperson for the Queen Program. “However, with decades of use, many of our furisode are in conditions beyond repair. With the funds generously raised and donated from this Crab Feed, the committee is hoping to purchase a new furisode kimono to be used for many more decades to come.”

Tickets are $40 general, $15 for children 12 and under.

As parking around the church is very limited, a complimentary shuttle from Peace Plaza, Post and Buchanan streets in Japantown, will be available from 4:45 to 7 p.m. and will take attendees back to Japantown at the end of the event.

For tickets and information, call David Fujita at (650) 757-8800 or Phillip Mar at (415) 333-6470.
