For goodness sake! Have some sake!

scienceofsake.gifIt seems like every Asian American organization I’m involved with (ok, maybe not “involved” as much as “on their mailing list”) is a promotional partner of this awesome upcoming event “The Science of Sake” a sake and food tasting event. A fundraiser for the Little Tokyo Service Center, it features a ton of alcohol and Hors D’ Oeuvres, plus a special award and appearance by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Over 50 brands and types of sake will be provided,

And so you know the artwork for the event wasn’t just a random Star Wars rip-off, private viewings of the popular Star Wars Exhibit:”Where Science Meets Imagination” will be available, seeing as the venue is the California Science Center.

Sake, food, and Morimoto for $40? How could it not be awesome? (Check out the pictures from last year’s event: Sake Illuminated.)
