Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Tucson restaurant: RA Sushi host Halloween celebration

Costume Capers

Have a ghoulishly good time on Halloween at RA Sushi’s Boo Bash 2011. Visit RA Sushi at La Encantada Shopping Center on October 31 from 8 p.m. to close for spooktacular food and drink specials, costume contest, and guest DJ.

Boys and ghouls are encouraged to dress up for the Boo Bash costume contest. Those dressed to impress will have the opportunity to swipe serious treats, including a $100 RA gift certificate for the first place winner and a $25 RA gift certificate for second place. To keep the monster mash going all night long, a guest DJ will spin a haunting mix of beats.

During the event, enjoy a variety of “Boo Bites,” including Voodoo Crispy Chicken: crispy chicken, sautéed with onion, green pepper and Japanese pumpkin; tossed in a sesame chili sauce ($6); Vampire Shrimp: lightly battered spicy shrimp and shishito peppers (these are so hot!) tossed with ramen noodles and chili sauce; served in a crispy lettuce cup ($8); and the Spider Roll: tempura battered Japanese pumpkin, crispy soft shell crab, kaiware sprouts, kani kama crab mix rolled in rice and soy paper; topped with shredded daikon; served with spicy mayo and eel sauce ($10).
