Want a great foodie event to go to this weekend? Our pick is The Joy of Sake, this Friday, September 19, 2016 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea from 6:30 to 9:30pm. The annual celebration returns to NYC for its 11th year and was founded in Honolulu in 2001 as a non-profit organization to celebrate the world’s finest sakes.
Sake is alcoholic beverage that is highly celebrated in Japan. Unlike most wines which ethanol is produced form fermented sugars, sake is produced by a brewing process from rice which gives that smooth delicate taste that is beautifully paired with the simplest to the most tasteful dishes of Japanese cuisine. The Joy of Sake will be honoring 408 sakes in the Big Apple, with about 200 sakes that normally unavailable to the U.S or even to most Japanese--making it feel like a once in a life time experience! Some of the best Japanese restaurants of New York will be present and a good variety of appetizers will be served with the sake to offer a taste of Japanese culture.
Start your weekend off right by spending a night enjoying the best sake in the world! For more information (and to snag your tickets) visit www.joyofsake.com before Friday night!
