On Wednesday, February 19th at 6:30pm O-Ku’s Beverage Director, Alfred Stovall, will lead an intimate private group in a sake class where guests will learn about the popular Japanese spirit, sampling three different types of sake paired with samples of three of the restaurant’s most popular sushi and sashimi dishes.
