Happy Thursday, sake lovers! And a thousand apologetic bows for our absence. With the Honolulu Joy only (gasp) eight days away, we are, how shall we put it … well, let’s just say we’re in the home stretch of preparations for sorting 3,500 sake, getting things ready for sake seminars and judging and pinning down final touches with our 15 restaurants and our Pier 2 venue for a joyous celebration with 1,000-plus sake lovers like you! In eight days!
Congratulations to KAYLA, our randomly picked winner from all seven correct answers! All correct because they’re in the same vein: A restaurant overpours sake to show generosity, welcome and appreciation to its customers. A beautiful gesture, wouldn’t you agree? Kayla, may your prize of two Joy of Sake cups always overflow — we’ll get them in the mail to you as soon as the Honolulu Joy is over.
Today’s trivia challenge may or may not be the last, because (gasp) we’re only eight days out! We will do our best. Meanwhile, because this may or may not be sake trivia’s farewell, we are awarding three (yes, THREE) Joy of Sake T-shirts for the correct answer to this question:
What was the original inspiration for the name ‘Joy of Sake’?
Have at it, people!
