RA Sushi in South Miami presents October menu promotions and events line-up

Promotions & Events LINE-UP

RA Sushi, the stylish sushi restaurant and bar in South Miami, is pleased to announce its October 2010 menu promotions and events line-up including International Sake Day, “RA-ctoberfest” or what the Japanese call “Nihonshu no Hi;” its ONEHOPE and Pink Roll promo benefitting the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.; the introduction of its newest roll, The King James; and its Halloween celebration entitled “Boo Bash.”

RA Sushi in South Miami’s October 2010 menu promo and events line-up:

Oct. 1-31, 2010: International Sake Day/“Nihonshu no Hi”
Fall, specifically the month of October, represents a beginning in the sake world: the start of a new brewing term. For this reason, Oct. 1 is known as “Nihonshu no Hi” (Sake Day) in Japan or International Sake Day throughout the rest of the world. In order to honor this special holiday, RA Sushi in South Miami will be celebrating “RA-ctoberfest” with a $9 unique and appetizing sake flight menu offered to all guests during the entire month.

Sake is a traditional Japanese rice wine that may be paired with different dishes, similar to wine pairing. Each sake has its own numeric rating. This rating can help sake novices decide which variety to try first. This number is usually listed on the bottle and is included on RA’s drink menus. The lower, negative numbers mean the sake is sweeter and heavier. The higher a positive number is, the drier the sake will be. Please see below for a simple breakdown of sake ratings:
Sake Meter Value (Nihonshu–Do):
· Sweetest (–20)
· Driest (+10)
The special sake flights will feature the following premium cold sakes:
Tozai “Living Jewel” Junmai (+6): Complex aromas of white grape, anise and a hint of sweet rice flavor with a clean, dry finish
Hakutsuru Sayuri “Little Lily” Junmai Nigori (-11): Coarsely filtered sake with hints of coconut and melon with a smooth, creamy finish
Kizakura “Pure” STARS (-18): Kizakura “Pure” STARS is produced with a secondary fermentation in the bottle, much like Champagne. Unique and festive for celebrating any special occasion or simply an everyday treat, Kizakura “Pure” STARS is sweet, crisp and effervescent. It is minimally filtered to maintain its round, satisfying flavor. Enjoyable before or after dinner, it pairs nicely with spicy foods.

OCT. 15-NOV. 15, 2010: ONEHOPE and Pink Roll Promo
From Friday, Oct. 15 to Monday, Nov. 15, all RA Sushi Bar Restaurant locations will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of the “ONEHOPE and Pink Roll” special to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF).

The NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early cancer detection and to provide mammograms to those in need. ONEHOPE is a California wine company that donates half of its profits to breast cancer awareness, among other causes.

The “ONEHOPE and Pink Roll” special will be offered for $15 and includes ONEHOPE wine and the signature Pink Roll. The Pink Roll features shrimp, kani kama crab mix and sriracha combined with lettuce, avocado and cucumber wrapped in pink soy paper and served with a pink strawberry sauce. The roll is paired with a glass of ONEHOPE 2009 California Chardonnay.

OCT. 26, 2010-APRIL 13, 2011: The King James Roll
The highly anticipated Miami Heat season is right around the corner and RA Sushi in South Miami will pay homage to the team’s royalty with “The King James Roll” in honor of newest player LeBron James. The shrimp tempura, crab mix and cucumber rolled and topped with red beet tempura flakes and drizzled with a sweet eel sauce not only sports the basketball team’s colors, but will also be sold for $6 reminiscent to LeBron James’ jersey number. The roll will be available for the entire season starting on Oct. 26, 2010 through April 13, 2011.

OCT. 31, 2010: Boo Bash Halloween Party
RA Sushi in South Miami makes the perfect hot spot for ghoulish tricks and treats during the Boo Bash Halloween edition of the restaurant’s already popular Sunday night “Flying Fish Lounge.” The freakish fun starts at 8 p.m. with music, a variety of half-priced sushi and appetizers, plus great drink specials topped off with a “Best Costume” contest awarding the winner with a $100 RA gift certificate.

Action Catamarans, a Miami boat rental company, is offering clients an extra hour of sailing onboard its 45-foot Shuttleworth catamaran The Beast now through September 30. Typical half-day sails run for four hours and full-day sails run for seven; but, Action Catamarans’ Captain Julian Rubio wants clients onboard the catamaran charter to experience South Florida waters to the fullest.

“South Florida is known for the great weather,” says Rubio. “And we want clients to engage in all the water activities available to them at this time of year.”

Clients of Action Catamarans come from all parts of the world to host private events out on South Florida waters, including corporate functions, family gatherings and bachelorette parties. Still, Rubio hopes that the added sailing time will allow groups to further appreciate nature and experience activities along Biscayne Bay, which is home to distinct ecosystems and supports various species of wildlife.

“It’s not uncommon to see a pod of dolphins or manatees when you’re out sailing,” says Rubio, who has seen clients’ excitement during such encounters.

To further experience sea life, Action Catamarans also provides clients with snorkel gear to catch glimpse of fish varieties and reef plants. Other kid-friendly water activities include tubing, where clients are swiftly pulled in a rubber donut by The Mini-Beast, a 13-foot dinghy.

“We want to encourage people and give them the opportunity to visit such places like the mangroves, swim the sandbars or see wildlife first hand while onboard no matter the occasion,” says Rubio.
