Special Events October 2004
Wed October 13th 6:30-8:00PM - NIGORI 101 – A night dedicated to unfiltered sake. This is another world famous "True Sake Tasting Event," which will feature 7 different imported Nigoris. Per usual we will enlighten only 40 people at a cost of $40 per person. Trust me when I tell you that these events fill up very quickly! Nigori 101 will include 7 delicious unfiltered sakes, various snacks, and some serious sake Edu-entertainment in a really cool environment. We have selected an "urban oasis" called Capella – 270 14th Street between Mission and South Van Ness (North side of the street. Don't let the graffiti fool you the interior is glorious.) www.capellasf.com (If you do visit their site, disregard the Closed until November note.) The ultimate goal of the evening, besides having fun exploring some great sake is to change the name of nigori from "Cloudy" to "Foggy Sake" in respect to our fair city.
Secondly, I want to inform you that the superb restaurant 5th FLOOR has vastly expanded their sake and food-pairing menu with the help of yours truly. This restaurant excels in cuisine and service. Wine Director Emily Wines (not joking!) has decided that the future of sake is now, and she has produced a sake tasting menu of note. Go experience sake in the western-cuisine context at its best. 5th FLOOR (12 4th Street Palomar Hotel 384-1555) Tell them True Sake sent you!
