Restaurants are banding together at Mister Jiu's to raise money for Eric Ehler's medical expenses. Tickets are $30 and includes a buffet-style meal from the following restaurants (as well as more to come.) Cash bar and silent auction proceeds will also go to Eric's medical fund. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Participating restaurants include Mister Jiu's, Rice Paper Scissors, Black Sands Brewery, Wise Sons, Lilho Liho Yacht Club, Namu, ICHI Sushi and Aina Restaurant -- just to name a few!  Menu includes Eric's favorite foods: Asian and Americana, and all things in between! So far we have garlic noodles, spam fried rice, Korean fried chicken (and pasta salad!)
On December 31st, Eric, a cook at Mister Jiu's (and formerly the head chef at Black Sands and Luke's Local), was admitted to the ER due to a cardiac arrest. 2018 started off with a rough start, but now he's in good health -- at home and in recovery.
If you'd like to make an additional donation, please donate directly to Eric's GoFundMe page:
Since Eric was missed the New Year countdown (due to a medically-induced coma), we're throwing him a belated New Year's party. Here's to a healthy and happy 2018!
