Start it Off At Sakaya

Our friends at Sakaya want to invite everyone to kick their weekend off with a Happy Hour sake tasting at their store on E. 9th Street, saying:

This evening from 4-6PM 6-8PM, sake sommelier Paul Tanguay
from the importer Vine Connections will pour samples and familiarize visitors with selections from their portfolio of exceptional sake including...

Fukucho "Moon on the Water" Junmai Ginjo - This bold
fragrant sake from Hiroshima is made by one of Japan's
rare female master brewers.

Sato no Homare "Pride of the Village" Junmai Ginjo - From the famous Sudo Honke brewery in Ibaraki(also know for their Kakunko and Yusura nama junmai daiginjos), this beautifully refined sake is elegantly floral with a classically clean finish.
Sounds tasty and educational. How can you beat that? Kanpai!
