"Mochitsuki" — Japanese New Year's Rice Cake Pounding

When: Sat., Jan. 21, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2012

You thought the new year's goodness ended three weeks ago, but oh no, we keep that party going all year long ... or, at least until 10 this morning, when you get to pound rice with the Japan-America Society of Southern Colorado for free. It's mochitsuki time, boys and girls: the making of mochi, a sticky, pounded-rice dessert. The New Yorker warns, "In Japan, people occasionally suffocate while eating it." But since we're not in the Land of the Rising Sun, and instead at CC's Worner Campus Center (902 N. Cascade Ave., japanamerica.org), I'm pretty sure the only adversity to overcome will be finding an affable pounding partner. — Bryce Crawford
