Chicago Valentine’s Day 2018


RA Sushi The Roll of Attraction

Sushi enthusiasts and scientists alike say the aphrodisiac properties of sushi and cocktails can lead to saucier things. Who are we to argue? That’s why RA Sushi is helping Valentines keep it hot like wasabi in February, and you’re invited!

The RA Sushi restaurants in Chicago will be hosting a couple’s class on Wednesday, February 7 called The Roll of Attraction: An aphrodisiac sushi rolling class for couples that brings sushi rolling basics and sex appeal together in a fun night of handmade food that is perfectly paired with sake varieties and JCB #69 Sparkling Rose. Participants will learn to create and savor a variety of sushi and cocktails, including the heart-shaped “Soy Crazy for You” Roll, which is wrapped in pink soy paper and features lobster and strawberries.

The class is offered at all Ra Sushi locations. Tickets are generally $40-$45 and can be purchased here. In Chicago, both the Glenview and the Lombard locations are hosting the class.

I had the lovely opportunity to get a sneak peek of this class. My friend and I had the best time. Here are a few pics from the night.
