Special Events November 2004
Saturday Nov. 6 - Blind Sake Tasting Event for the CAJLT (CA. Association of Japanese Language Teachers) True Sake is a sponsor of this event - our 3rd year in a row - and I will be speaking briefly about how to taste "Blind." I love this event. Great sake in a great format - 20 unmarked bottles and the guests get to select the winners. Amazing food and a great location in Nakuru Tansu Gallery in S. San Francisco. (15% off of any Nakura purchases). The cost is $20 - tax-deductible donation! More info please email Ms. Akiko Soda, firstname.lastname@example.org. For directions see www.nakura.com6:00-7:30PM with Registration starting at 5:30PM. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
Wedesday, Nov. 17th - TRUE SAKE presents "Honjozo Night" - a very informal evening tasting a series of complex Honjozos. The format will vary slightly from "Nigori 101" as there will be even less prepared foods and my discussion will be very relaxed, as in just a drinking buddy blabbering on! We will disseminate 6 or 7 Honjozos (one not available in the US) with a range of attitudes. 6:00-7:00'ish. A quick hit tasting that should be followed by reservations at your favorite restaurant. Conveniently enough, this tasting will be at Absinthe - 398 Hayes Street two blocks from True Sake - in the Garden Room. Ticket Price is $40/head and advance sales only by phoning the store 415.355.9555
