Shochu'sday - Kumamoto and Oita prefectures

Tuesday, June 7th @ 5:30pm to 7:30pm
a la carte orders of shochu and bar food

Shochu is still a relatively unknown beverage outside of Japan, but those familiar with it know that it is a delicious, versatile liquor that can hold its own and can also bring a lot of enjoyment to a meal.

Stephen Lyman, one of New York's biggest experts on the spirit, will be hosting his Shochu'sday (Tuesday!) roaming event at EN on June 7th.

This Shochu'sday will be dedicated to Kumamoto and Oita, the prefectures hardest hit by the recent earthquake. Part of the proceeds will go toward a relief fund. The shochu offered at discount prices, as well as the bar food specials will be specialties of the Kumamoto-Oita area.

Everything will be on an a la carte order basis, and Stephen will offer his expertise on the craft of shochu brewing, the people that make them, and the specificities of shochu and food from this part of Japan.

This event will be taking place in the bar area of EN from 5:30pm to around 7:30pm. Come stop by for discounted shochu drinks and great food!

No reservations required.
