WOMEN DISTILLER WEDNESDAYS: BURNSIDE
For our inaugural feast, we are featuring the BURNSIDE expression by East Side Distilling Company created by the amazing MEL HEIM.

Sake Dojo will have a booth located at The Japanese American Cultural Community Center Plaza (JACCC). Join us and enjoy the night out with plenty of vendors and activities. This is the beginning of Nisei Week which runs through Little Tokyo between August 11, 2018 to August 19, 2018.
