However, given that there are over 20 different sushi options on special, plus a ton of appetizer deals, feel free to go all out because the whole menu is full of great values.

The total cost of the evening = $28.50

Your Haul = Maker’s Mark Old Fashioned + Wings or Hummus + 3 Beers + Sake Sangria

Reminder = Don’t forget to take care of the bar staff, and that might push you over $30, but it is well worth it!!
