Sushi Day at BAKU

A different kind of bar is opening
Charlotte Magazine

I can definitely attest to the fact that I am a lover of celebrating arbitrary things on certain days, as my posts on National Cheese Day and other "national" celebrations will show. It seems that the team over at BAKU think along the same lines…

Founded in 2009 on Facebook by sushi enthusiast Chris Demay, International Sushi Day is a worldwide celebration of the popular Japanese cuisine. “Every day should be sushi day,” stated Demay, “but like anything this amazing, it deserves a day unto itself.”

On Wednesday, June 18, BAKU will celebrate International Sushi Day from 5-6:30 p.m. The restaurant will serve complimentary passed sushi, plus half-price specialty and sake cocktails throughout the evening and showcase live music on the patio. To begin the evening’s festivities, BAKU will unveil its new 16-seat sushi bar on the first floor of the restaurant. Chefs Michael Shortino and Tsuyoshi Ono will prepare exquisitely plated sushi creations and, having won the Charlotte magazine Best of the Best award for Best Food Art, there's no doubt in my mind that the dishes will be artistic, beautiful and (almost) too pretty to eat.
