It's finally happened! The two worlds of sushi and video games have finally joined forces and become one...but only for one night a week during the month of August.
RA Sushi will kick off Tournament Tuesday next week on August 3. Every Tuesday night from 11 p.m.-1 a.m., hardcore (or softcore, doesn't matter) gamers can compete against one another playing sports-themed video games. All you have to do is get there between 8-10 p.m., sign up and then RA staffers will draw names to determine the contestants battling it out for a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant, ultimate tournament trophy and a picture displayed at the restaurant.
Chosen competitors will play in single-elimination 15-minute games that will include golf, bowling, tennis and Olympics. RA will also offer its late-night menu consisting of sushi and appetizers. For more information, visit www.rasushi.com
Also going on this week....
So, do you know what tomorrow is? It's National Chicken Finger Day! Raising Canes will celebrate the day and its signature menu item by giving away a free chicken finger to every customer who comes in with a Caniac Club Card on Tuesday, July 27.
Not feeling the whole chicken finger business? Then you can stop by Naga Thai Kitchen & Bar on Wednesdays for $6 pad thai. Also, they will have a book signing this Sunday, August 1, for Dallas chef Jennifer Schaertl's new book "Gourmet Meals in Crappy Little Kitchens." For more information, visit www.nagathai.com.
Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa is bringing back Half-Priced Wine Mondays. The restaurant will offer a wine list featuring a selection of red and whites from Napa Valley, Italy, France and more.
State and Allen just added a brunch to its Saturday menu. Diners can enjoy $2.50 mimosas; $3.00 screwdrivers, bloody marys, and tequila sunrises; fried chicken and waffles; Tasso ham and cheese omelette; and much more. To view other brunch menu items, visit www.stateandallen.com.
City of Aters, if you're a lover of wine, then you might want to sign up for this week's dining newsletter, because we included some big news about an event coming up.
