June 14: 2nd Annual Take no Tsuyu Pairing at Sozai
Over the brief history of Sozai Restaurant, Take no Tsuyu (Bamboo Tears) Junmai has become the "Sake of the Inner Sunset," a huge hit with anyone seduced to try it by General Manager Gil Payne. It is Sozai's top selling Sake, and Gil's absolute favorite sake to have with Izakaya-style tapas!
To take advantage of Take no Tsuyu owner, Masao-san's brief visit to the Bay Area, we once again have the honor of inviting you to experience a sake pairing with five of his wonderful sakes with four specially crafted tapas plates by Chef Mari. You'll have the added benefit and honor of meeting him and hearing the story of this outstanding kura from Yamagata-ken.

June 20th : Beau Timken Works At Sakaya in NYC
Where: Sakaya sake store in Manhattan
Details: When in Rome do what the Romans do - sell some sake! Rick has graciously invited me to come visit the store for the first, and I said "visit" - no way I want to work. So I hopefully will be selling some sake for Sakaya on the 20th. This would a be a good chance to say hi to all of my East Coast readers.
