The Lure of Sake at CMA

When: Fri., April 22 2011

In a sneaky move to get young professionals to see the new Lure of Painted Poetry exhibition, the Cleveland Museum of Art presents Nihonshu Night, a TGIF'ing toss of sake, fusion fare, and seven centuries' worth of transcendent art from Japan and Korea. (For more on the exhibit, see this week's Art Around Town.) An $18 ticket snags you three sake samples, three tastings of fine fare from Sasa Japanese bistro on Shaker Square, and a chance to check out the talent while saying smart things to Associate Curator Seunghye Sun. Also on hand, music from Beat Matrix's Darrell Stout, who will be spinning ambient and downtempo tracks, and a cash bar — just in case three sake samples aren't enough. It happens from 5 to 8:30 p.m. For more info, visit or call 216-421-7350. The museum is at 11150 East Blvd. in University Circle. — Cicora
