Those lucky New Yorkers! They get to participate in the first New York Saké Week from June 1-5. The event is being organized by Southern Wine and Spirits, which also organized all the Saké at the recent UNLVino Grand Wine Tasting event I attended. They certainly seem to be very interested in the promotion of Saké and they deserve kudoes for their efforts.
Over 100 New York restaurants will be participating, just an amazing number of places, who have elected to help promote Saké. There will be many special events, including food pairings, tastings, education, and more. The goal is to expose people to the pleasures of Saké, and especially how it can pair with so many different cuisines.

Now wouldn't that be a great event for Boston too? I doubt we could arrange an event that large, though even on a smaller scale it would be worthwhile.
