May 5th (Thursday) fundraiser

Friends are planning an event to raise money for those up north!
This is going to be in conjunction with the Japanese Whisky Association and you will be able to try some amazing whiskey! Here is what we are sending our friends:
Please forward to any person who you think might enjoy the night.


Rare single cask whiskies + hidden Tokyo bar + Tohoku relief
Here's the deal: We go to a cool hidden bar on the University of Tokyo's main campus, they sell us shots of their rare single cask whiskies at up to half the normal price, and 50% of the takings go to Tohoku.

The whisky:
The drinks will be from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, a 30,000 member society which bottles exceptional single cask whiskies and sells only to its members. Usually, you'll pay around 1,600 to 2,400 yen for a shot, but for this event, everything will be 1,000 yen, and 500 yen of that will go to Tohoku relief. The Japanese branch of the Society has also agreed to dig out some very special bottles from its vaults for this night, so this will be exceptional value. Since non-members can't usually buy SMWS bottles, it's a great chance to try some very exclusive malts.

The venue:
Picture a typical university campus bar. The University of Tokyo's hidden bar S is the opposite of that. It's the sister of a very fancy Ginza bar, is decked out in expensive wood, staffed by master bartenders, and is the best-kept secret on the Tokyo drinking scene.

The organization:
All entry fees and 50% of the bar revenue will go to SHARE, a Japan-based medical charity that is sending doctors, nurses and medicines to Tohoku. See and and then come and have a drink.
