Win Tickets to Sake Illuminated
Imagine this scene. You are at the Museum of Neon Arts. You are having a pleasant time, enjoying the neon art, but you have this nagging suspicion that somehow the experience of the neon art could be enhanced. Finally, after a long moment of consideration, and after your neon art viewing companion says, “What is your problem? Do you want to leave?” you turn to said companion and say, “You know what would make this neon art viewing experience even better? A nice choko of sake.”
Now, imagine this scene. You are at a sake bar. You are having a good time, enjoying the sake, but you have this nagging suspicion that somehow the sake experience could be enhanced. Finally, after a moment of consideration, you turn to your sake drinking companions and say, “You know what would make this sake even better? Some neon art work. I’m sitting here drinking this sake but my sense of sight is receiving little to no stimulation.”
The Little Tokyo Service Center, a social service and community economic development agency providing a wide range of services to the Los Angeles community, has addressed the lack of sake/neon art events and come up with Sake Illuminated, a special one-night benefit program held at the Museum of Neon Arts.
Enjoy a unique evening of sake, art and entertainment where sake and food pairings offer guests a tantalizing experience for their palettes. Sake experts will be on hand to provide an education on the sake and food pairings at the various sake and hors d’ oeuvres stations. As guests sample the offerings, they will also be able to view the “As We Glow” exhibit at the Museum of Neon Arts and speak to Asian American neon artists regarding the work on display.
Want to go? In the comments section below suggest a tasty beverage/artwork pairing. Our favorite response gets a pair of tickets for this special event. The contest ends Monday, April 24 at noon and the winner will be notified by email.
