"The tasting will feature four different sakes from the RITA brand of Toshimaya. Each sake is unique to the brewer and most of them have not yet been sold in the United States market (so it’s a rare chance to try them here!) The president of Toshimaya Corporation will make a special visit from Japan and provide a presentation on each unique sake. During the event, we’ll also hold a “blind tasting” game in which guests will get to guess which particular sake they’re drinking. Lastly, the tasting will be paired with snacks served by a professional Japanese chef to enhance the taste of the sake."

This would be a fantastic way to experience Japanese culture, as well as connect with people in the community, not to mention try sake that isn't available in the US (yet)!

When: Wed, March 16, 2016, 8:00-9:30pm (General Audience)
Where: RESOBOX, 41-26 27th St, Long Island City, NY 11101
How: $30 (all-inclusive)

For business-related clients, there's a 6:30 – 8:00pm time available. Please RSVP to

RESOBOX (Instagram, Twitter) is the name created from a mashup of the words Resonate and Box. This Resonating Box envisions a space where artists can meet and collaborate to create new and innovative arts. The space within this Box Resonates, too, shaking up everything inside. Japanese artists are welcome, and so are the many non-Japanese artists who understand and find themselves being influenced by the arts of Japan.

These artists can meet in RESOBOX, and create new works by adding and mixing in their sensibilities, playing a great role in preserving, and even developing Japanese arts.  In today’s global environment, Japanese arts might not always emanate from Japan alone, but also from places like New York City, where art is highly concentrated and widely disseminated to the world at large.
