I hope RA Sushi is right. We are all so ready for summer to be over!

from the press release

With vacations winding down, school back in session, and the end to 100 degree temperatures on the horizon, that can only mean one thing in Arizona. Summer is almost over! To reward residents for surviving the past few months, on Thursday, September 13, RA Sushi is hosting a So Long Summer Party from 7 p.m. to close at RA Sushi at La Encantada: 2905 E. Skyline Drive, Tucson, Ariz., 85718.

With scorching hot food and drink specials served all night long, and a special guest D.J. mixing cool beats, bid farewell to summer in true RA Sushi style!

Chill out at RA Sushi with So Long Summer drink specials. Cocktail selections, available for $5, include: Long Island Iced Tea, Frozen Fuzzy Momo Bellini, Red/White Summer Sake Sangria, the Dragon Bite featuring Bacardi Dragon Berry, strawberry purée, fresh lemon juice, yuzu, and a splash of soda, or the Endless Summer Night with Sauza Tequila, Citronage, pineapple, orange and lime juice, and a splash of grenadine. Beer drinkers have the choice of $3 Bud Light and Miller Light or $5 Kirin/Kirin Light and sake.

A variety of summer themed food specials will be offered for the evening. Try RA’s specialty rolls, such as the Seaside Roll ($7) with rice and seaweed wrapped around cucumber and shrimp, then topped with spicy shrimp; or the Sunset Roll ($6), which is rice and seaweed rolled with cucumber and spicy tuna and then topped with red tempura bits. Creations made for sharing include Grilled Beef Skewers ($8), Summer School Chicken Nuggets ($6), and Kaisen Ceviche ($7.25). Heat up the party with the Bonfire Shrimp ($9): crispy, spicy shrimp and shishito peppers tossed with ramen noodles and black sesame seeds in a chili sauce.
