Here is a fun foodie event sushi fans will love. According to a recent report by IBISWorld, sushi establishments have grown in popularity in recent years as a result of consumers’ increased health-consciousness and disposable incomes. RA Sushi Bar & Restaurant, the country’s national sushi brand known for inventive sushi and innovative cocktails, is inviting guests in for a delicious, interactive sush class and tasting in October in celebration of its milestone 21st birthday. 

Perfect for groups, couples, or the adventurous solo food lover, Sushi & Sake 101 classes take place on Sunday, October 21 at 1 p.m. They will be offered at all five RA Sushi Phoenix locations.
