Tucson, Ariz. (September 11, 2013) – 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 RA Sushi at La Encantada, 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!
Visit RA Sushi at La Encantada on International Sake Day, October 1, from 11 a.m. to close to take advantage of hot and cold sake specials ranging from $1 to $7. Raise a glass and Kampai! to International Sake Day! RA Sushi is located at 2905 E. Skyline Dr., Tucson, Ariz., 85718. For more information, call 520-615-3970 or visit . Follow RA Sushi on Facebook.
