RA Sushi takes Miami on a celebratory 90s “Fantastic Voyage” in honor of its 2 year anniversary
On Thursday, Sept. 16, 2010, 7PM-close, RA Sushi, the stylish sushi restaurant and bar in South Miami, invites fans to “Fall into the 90s at RA” – a 90s themed party celebrating the restaurant’s second anniversary and benefitting the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.
“Fall into the 90s at RA” will take partygoers on a bangin’ ride back to the 90s and boast all things lame from the decade…NOT! Guests can expect stylin’ looks worn by the staff – think 90210, high-rise jeans and grunge attire a la Kurt Cobain or even over-the-top fashions channeling MC Hammer or their inner Spice Girl – and fun décor to boot. In addition, everyone is encouraged to participate in the night’s “Look-Alike Contest” giving RA fans the chance to win a $100 RA Sushi gift certificate by dressing up as their favorite 90s actor, pop star, politician or TV personality.
The soirée – sure to be nothing, but DA BOMB – will feature DJ Rico on the 1s and 2s; complete with his definitive catalog of pure 90s party anthems to guarantee all guests will be getting’ jiggy wit it on the dance floor. For those looking to show off their dancing skills, a “Macarena Dance-Off” will also take place during the celebration gifting its champion with a $50 RA Sushi gift certificate. Last, but definitely not least (AS IF!) local celebrity drag queen Daisy Deadpetals – Too Wong Foo or The Birdcage anyone? – will put on a hella show and perform a fun rendition of Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.”
In true RA Sushi fashion, Head Sushi Chef Elijah Wiener and RA mixologists worked together to create a sampling of specialty rolls and cocktails for the slammin’ celebration. The themed food menu will consist of $9 Japanese delights such as the Fresh Prince Roll (shrimp tempura, spicy kani kama crab mix and cucumber rolled and topped with red beet tempura bits; drizzled with a sweet eel sauce), Kramer Roll (smoked salmon, mango and cream cheese topped with avocado, red beet tempura bits and cashews; drizzled with mango and sweet eel sauces), Rice Rice Baby Roll (spicy tuna mix served on top of crispy sesame rice balls; drizzled with a soy chili sauce) and the Show Me The Money Roll (spicy salmon, cucumber, cilantro & jalapeño rolled and topped with avocado and sriracha). For those with an appetite, the restaurant is also offering The Biggie Smalls Roll (kani kama crab and cream cheese rolled in rice and seaweed, lightly tempura battered and topped with spicy tuna, more kani kama crab mix and sliced lotus root; finished with a sweet eel sauce and spinach tempura bits; $10). In the spirit of giving, $2 from the purchase of each item from the entire sushi menu listed above will be donated to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.
RA’s $5 drink specials include the Baywatch Punch (a delicious blend of cold sake, liqueurs and tropical juices), Snoop Dogg’s drink of choice Gin & Juice, Central Perk Martini (espresso, coffee martini), Kurt Cobain Cocktail (a mix of Goldschlager, Rumplemintz and Jagermeister) and a Bye Bye Bye Martini (Effen Black Cherry Vodka, Nigori Sake, triple sec and lime juice).
