New Year's—joyous, resplendent daiginjo labels
Setsubun (Spring Festival)—scares the demons away
Cherry Blossom Season—gay, festive, fun to drink
Tanabata (Milky Way Festival)—sends us to the stars

Nadine Leong from The Sake Shop will talk about her favorite ways to pair sake with food over the holidays. Then, there are 40 junmai, ginjo and daiginjo sakes for tasting from 6:00 to 7:00, followed by the appetizer buffet and a congenial hour of sake sipping until 8:00 p.m.
