from the press release

Tucson, Ariz. (September 19, 2012) –  On October 1, 2012, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is recognizing “Nihonshu no Hi” or International “Sake Day”, an informal holiday created to celebrate the popular Japanese spirit. Nothing pairs better with sushi than sake, and in honor of this special day RA is encouraging guests to explore this lesser known spirit! Enjoy hot sake for $1 all day at RA Sushi at La Encantada.

International Sake Day’s origins are centered around ancient symbols and sake’s brewing season. October is represented in the ancient Chinese zodiac system, also embraced in Japan, by the old character for sake. Conveniently, the same month also represents a beginning in the sake world: the start of a new brewing season, making October 1, the perfect time to celebrate all things sake!

Visit RA Sushi on International Sake Day from 11 a.m. to close, and enjoy $1 hot sake, a savings of $3 from the normal price. Raise a glass and Kampai! to International Sake Day! For more information, visit RA Sushi’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/RASushiTucson.

The offer is valid at RA Sushi at La Encantada on October 1 only. Visit RA at 2905 E. Skyline Drive, Tucson, Ariz., 85718. For more information, call 520-615-3970.
