May 27th - Sake San Jose 2010

"Sake San Jose combines sake tasting with a walk through Historic Japantown San Jose."

This is one of my favorite events of the year! I love this tasting because it is fun and really friendly! If you live outside of San Jose get a hotel room and make a night of it. You can even visit Koji Sake Lounge after the event! And per usual Beau will be hosting a station and will be pouring his usual "Beau Shu" the mighty nama Ginjo Genshu cans from Narutotai!

When: Thursday, May 27th, 5-8:30 pm
Where: Japantown San Jose / On Jackson Street Between 3rd and 7th Streets
Tickets: Pre-event: $40 / Day of event: $50
