Have you ever been mystified and confused by the kanji on a sakÃ© bottle label?
When partaking of a delicious brew at a Japanese restaurant or friend’s house, did you ever want to politely say “Thank you, sir, may I have another?” in Japanese? (Tom Cruise, suffering from the DTs in “Last Samurai,” wasn’t exactly genteel.)
Let’s face it, drinking in another language is WAY cool, and now’s your chance to pick up some “survival drinking Japanese” from patient, knowledgeable, convivial hosts.
You are cordially invited to join us at SakÃ© Nomi for “SakÃ© Japanese” on Saturday, July 26 @ 7 p.m.
We’ll clue you in on how to interpret some key sakÃ©-related kanji, and shed some light on Japanese drinking traditions and etiquette. If you’ve ever wondered how to say or write something in Japanese, we’ll do our best to cover that, too.
In fact, Taiko will be pleased to enlighten you regarding some of the more poetic Japanese expressions, such as the words for “sleeping sand” and “ear wax.” To quote Marge Simpson from the classic episode “One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish”:
“Japanese is such a beautiful language.”
Cost for the class will be $60/person, and will include all sakÃ©, appetizers, and materials.
If you’re interested in attending, please reserve your spot as soon as possible, and no later than Sunday, July 20.
To reserve your spot, please contact us at (206) 467-SAKE or [email protected]
