Sake San Jose combines sake tasting with a walk through Historic Japantown.
When: May 27, 2010 from 5:00 to 8:30 pm
Where: Japantown, San Jose
On Jackson Street Between 3rd and 7th Streets

The Yu-Ai Kai Senior Community Center hosted this benefit. A sake tasting and walk through Japantown with local businesses offering different types of sake for guests to sample. Some of the sakes for tasting were daiginjo, ginjo and junmai grades of premium sake. It provided a great opportunity for connoisseurs and novices to sample and learn about a variety of sakes. Proceeds from Sake San Jose benefit Yu-Ai Kai Senior Services nonprofit center located right here in Japantown.

To kick off the event our very own Horitaka was invited, alongside other local business owners, to break open the first cask with a mallot:

Yay boss! and I think Phillip consumed at least thirty shots of sake in all, making it to twenty-three of the twenty-eight booths! Good times!


Oh my little friends out there in Blog-land, the times they are a changing. With oil leaking out into the gulf at a record pace and ice caps melting I foresee the end is near, enjoy it while it lasts, folks, the apocopalypse is surely upon us...In the snip heard 'round the world, Willie Nelson has chopped off his braids!


But thanks to Dan Wysuph, we can enjoy the braided man a little bit longer,
