(Look what he started. Tom Douglas of Dahlia Lounge et al. just announced that he’ll be opening a place in that nabe, followed by Christine Keff’s announcement that she’ll relocate her terrific Flying Fish there this May.)
So starting this Thursday, Howie lays out a full week of birthday festivities, including gifts for his patrons. All week from 1/21 through 1/27, drop your business card in the fishbowl for a chance to win a Seastar dinner for eight on your birthday.
The rest of the fun:
Thursday 1/21: $1.27 Sushi all night long, featuring Howie’s Washington Roll (smoked salmon, Dungeness crab, and Granny Smith apples), shiro maguro ngiri, ebi ngiri, vegetarian futomaki roll, kappa maki, and maguro roll.
Friday 1/22: Every couple that comes in and orders two entrees at lunch or dinner will receive a $27.09 dinner gift certificate. (Get it? The birthdate?)
Saturday 1/23: Enjoy a glass of Krug and finish dinner with a one-ounce pour of Louis XIII Cognac for $127.09 (Valued at $200.00).
Sunday 1/24: $1.27 Happy Hour beer, wine, and cocktails all night.
Monday 1/25: “Choose Your Charity” evening. Choose Food Lifeline, Muscular Dystrophy Association, or Bailey-Boushay House and 12.7% of your bill will be donated there.
