Sake Events June 2017 A

Sake Events June 2017 BThis is a HUGE warning! The event space is smaller this year (cuter too), so we WILL sell out the event. Did you hear that? We WILL SELL OUT SAKE DAY 2017 so please order your tickets now at the best “Early Bird” rate! 


Call your friend. Call your mom. Call everybody and get your tickets ASAP. Do not wait until the last second, because they will be gone. Get your tix! Book a hotel in Japan Town. Make a weekend of it!


And guess what? Group sales are awesome! Please send an email to info@sakeday.com if you have co-workers, mom’s group, cycling group, cooking group, school group, or even your bowling group would like to attend at a discount. We do group sales, because groups are fun! 


We are getting very excited to rock your sake world again. This year’s theme is #throwback Sake Day, because we are returning to our roots at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California in Japan Town. That’s right! We are headed back to our favorite gym to get physical with over 120 different sakes that are available for purchase in the US and many that are not yet available.

Have you ever wanted to taste pure sake brewing water? You have? Good for you, because one of Sake Day’s favorite brewery owners – Masao Aisawa – from Takenotsuyu has donated 35 cases of his critically acclaimed sake brewing water from Yamagata Prefecture. Water that is so good he bottles and sells it across Japan. Now that is cool! 


We are also playing with a whole new food line-up that will get back to sake’s #throwback roots of great sake alley fare. (We are tired of hearing about “street food” so we will call it Japanese alley food) Yes! 


We will alter the layout of the Cultural Center to allow more tasters, but we will not be selling as many tickets as we did last year. So we highly recommend buying your tickets NOW at the lower “Early Bird” price.

In this light, all proceeds of ticket sales for Sake Day go directly to the JCCCNC. Are we proud of this? You bet! Last year we raised $20,000 for the JCCCNC and we look forward to a hefty donation this year with your help. 


Sake Day 2017 – The 12 Annual #throwback Sake Day will be held Saturday September 30th at the JCCCNC in Japan Town San Francisco. Tickets are on sale NOW and don’t forget to book a hotel in Japan Town for you out of towners!
