On Tuesday, October 1, 2013, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is recognizing “Nihonshu no Hi” or International “Sake Day”, an informal holiday created to celebrate the popular Japanese spirit. In honor of this special day, RA Sushi is offering hot and cold sake deals to encourage guests to explore this lesser-known libation that pairs perfectly with sushi. All day long, at either the Highland Village or CITYCENTRE RA Sushi locations, enjoy hot sake for $1, Hakutsuru “Draft” sake for $5, or a Sake Flight featuring three, 2 ounce tastings for $7.
International Sake Day’s origins are centered on ancient symbols and sake’s brewing season. October is represented in the ancient Chinese zodiac system, also embraced in Japan, by the old character for sake. Conveniently, the same month also represents a beginning in the sake world: the start of a new brewing season, making October 1 the perfect time to celebrate all things sake!
