Making your way through life without a name is tough (though maybe preferable if your dad is Frank Zappa), which is why a contemporary Japanese joint in Bucktown is inviting the masses to help give it a name, with the winner compensated in the form of a $100 gift certificate every month for the entire first year they're open
The liquor license at Songs In The Sake of Life*** is expected to roll in around Labor Day, at which point they'll be crafting cocktails from a robust selection of sakes (including one in a can) as well as housemade ginger ales, fruit-infused syrups, and some pretty damn pricey Japanese whiskeys you'll end up paying for, unless your naming skills can help you Dweezil your way out of the check.
* These are just suggestions. Awesome, definitely winning suggestions. ** Especially this one. *** Not this one, as much.
While nameless for a bit, this Japanese joint in Bucktown is now dubbed and ready to roll (like sushi rolls, get it?). With a farm-to-table philosophy, you better believe that these ingredients are fresh. From traditional steam buns to Tokyo nachos, the food is good and the good times are aplenty.
