In this issue it's time to get fowl about sake and drill in your mind that Thanksgivings are made for nihonshu, recount Sake Day2010 and what you missed, enjoy Chizuko Niikawa's Sake Spotlight on the Daishichi brewery, taste sake and Spanish food pairings, and discover what it would take for a sake Vlog in the True Sake sense to be born.
