Sake and Cats with Urbansake’s Timothy Sullivan and Koneko

Sake Tasting with Timothy Sullivan

Saturday, July 28 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

Koneko – 26 Clinton Street (between E. Houston and Stanton Streets)

Admission: $45

Japan is well known for its love of cats and sake, and Koneko says, “a healthy combination of cats and sake has been mathematically proven to increase wellbeing and productivity.” To that end America’s first cat café is hosting a unique night of both. De-stress at Koneko’s one-night-only sake tasting with sake expert Timothy Sullivan.

One of the country’s foremost sake sommeliers and founder of the educational sake website urbansake.com, Sullivan will give an overview of a variety of sake and conduct a tasting of sake from Japanese brewery Hakkaisan, for whom Sullivan is the brand ambassador.

Perhaps most important, the event includes the cuddling of 20 fluffy kitties.
