joy of sake nyc is on.

There is a lot of talk about there not being a Joy of Sake event this year in NYC. For those of you who have never been; the Joy of Sake is the largest Sake tasting outside of Japan. Last year’s event had over 250 Sake and food from some great NYC restaurants. For those of us in Boston, a quick trip down to New York can give us an unprecedented opportunity to try some truly amazing Sake, a lot of which are not sold in the U.S.

I was worried that the rumors might be true and the JOS might not be happening. However, yesterday I received an email from Chris Pearce, the founder of the Joy of Sake:

“The Joy of Sake will be held on October 21 at The Altman Building in New York. It’s being presented in cooperation with the Foreign Ministry of Japan and the Consulate General of Japan in New York. The website will be updated later this week.” 

This is great news for the east coast Sake community and a “not to be missed” event.

You can order tickets at starting next week.
