Just wanted to let folks know that ticket sales are brisk this year, the event may sell out.  If you are interested, you should get tickets sooner rather than later.

 

You can get tickets here: http://eventnavigato...om/sakefestpdx/

 

More info about the event here: http://sakefestpdx.com/

 

And yes, the code: SAKEONE will get you $10 off and the code: FB will get you $6 off (in case the other code doesn't work)...for the time being.

 

I love this event, and if you love sake, I bet that you will too!

It's been so long I can't remember -- does a line form early to get into this one? Even if you have tix?

There's usually a small line, but just at opening while they process folks in and sort out folks who have to pay at the door. I've never seen folks who get there on time wait more than 10-15 minutes while they get the line through.

Does anybody want to buy my ticket for $25? I thought I could go but I can't, sadly.

The newi-ish portfolio from Sake Locker was stellar. I thought their Nama was superb, if a bit in your face. Would have liked to try it next to the Aiyu Shiboritate Nama but sadly it wasn't there.

 

Fun roast pig from Saucebox too.  Ashamed I've never been.

Yes, the Sake Locker (distributor from SF) selections were winners...especially the sake that was aged in whiskey barrels, very interesting and tasty.

I don't know if there are any planned, but if they are announced, I will make sure to post it here.  There aren't any discount codes currently.
