This is too sweet of a deal to pass up. On Sunday at Beaker & Flask you can attend "A Conversation Between Plate & Glass," a five-course Japanese feast prepared by B & F chef Anthony Walton. Each course comes paired with a Japanese whiskey selected by Neyah White, an acclaimed Bay Area bartender and brand ambassador for Yamazaki Single Malt. If you’re having trouble wrapping your head around the concept of whiskey from the Land of the Rising Sun, be advised that Yamazaki has won gold medals at both the International Spirits Challenge and World Spirits Competition, so we’re talking about some distinguished beverages here.

This epicurean event, hosted by Yamazaki Whisky and the Oregon Bartenders Guild, is only $120 per person with proceeds going to Second Harvest, Japan’s largest food bank that distributes food to soup kitchens, orphanages, the elderly, emergency shelters, single mothers, the homeless, migrant workers, and many others. Obviously in light of recent tragic events, Second Harvest’s need for donations has never been more urgent.
