Sake Social 2013

A long standing summer event in Vancouver is the Powell Street Festival–a Japanese Canadian cultural celebration. This popular event, in its 37th incarnation, will take place August 3rd & 4th at Oppenheimer Park, which was once the hub of Vancouver’s Japantown.

To raise funds for the festival, a special sake tasting will be held at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden on Saturday, June 1st, 2013 from 7-10pm. More info can be found here.

If you purchase tickets before May 11th, you’ll be given an early bird discount–$35 for 4 sakes and nibbles. A small fee will be charged for additional tastes beyond the initial 4 sakes. After the 11th, the price goes up to $45.

Sounds like a pretty skookum deal and all the large sake distributors in town will be present, promoting their wares. Not a bad opportunity to check out what’s new and exciting in the local sake market, and heck, for a great cause too!

Hope to see you there!
