Do you like sushi? It seems like maybe a lot of people do, so much so that an “International Sushi Day” may be the next foodie holiday on your calendar. Why not? After all, we have popcorn days, ice cream days and so many more “holidays” based on food, why not one that celebrates sushi?
On June 18, 2011, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is celebrating International Sushi Day, an informal holiday created to encourage sushi lovers around the world to eat more sushi. In honor of this special day, anyone who “likes” RA Sushi on Facebook can print a special offer good for one complimentary Tootsy Maki.
To make this holiday even more official, RA Sushi has declared June 18 as International Sushi Day in the 2011 Chase’s Calendar of Events, the most comprehensive and authoritative reference book available on special events,worldwide holidays, civic observations, and more.
The complimentary Tootsy Maki certificate must be printed and redeemed between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday,
June 18, International Sushi Day. It is valid at any of the two Houston RA Sushi locations:
· Highland Village: 3908 Westheimer Rd.; 713.621.5800
· CITYCENTRE: 12860 Queensbury Lane; 713.331.2792
Tootsy Maki is one of RA Sushi’s most popular rolls containing kani kama crab mix, shrimp and cucumber, rolled and topped with crunchy tempura bits and drizzled with a sweet eel sauce. The certificate can be printed on June 18 and is good for that day only, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visit RA Sushi’s Facebook page on International Sushi Day at www.facebook.com/RASushiHouston.
Sushi’s presentation has evolved over the years, when it began as a means of preserving raw fish in Southeast Asia and eventually became a form of “fast food” sold from street vendors. Now a celebrated cuisine worldwide, sushi has become an art form, with each restaurant offering its own signature dishes of nigiri, sashimi, and maki. On International Sushi Day, sushi connoisseurs and sushi novices are encouraged to dine on their favorite RA Sushi dishes or explore the menu and try something new. All 25 RA Sushi Bar Restaurant locations nationwide will participate in International Sushi Day.
Don’t worry, RA Sushi also offers a full menu complete with soups and salads, bento boxes, and a number of stir fry and cooked meals. View the full menu at CityCentre here.
RA Sushi offers a number of other money saving offers for your family dinner night including Happy Hour prices on drinks and eats as well as these other savings, coupons and offers.
