We are very sad to announce that we will be closing our San Francisco outlet inside The Perish Trust. It's been an amazing year here and we are so grateful to Rod and Kelly of The Perish Trust for letting us park our little shop here for as long as we have. All year! Ultimately, Yoko and I decided that we want to concentrate on our Oakland shop, which will (fingers crossed!) be opening a Japanese beer and sake shop element in the new year.

We loved having a San Francisco presence and even more, getting to be a part of such a thriving neighborhood! The Nopa district is going through a lot of changes, with lots of new bars and restaurants moving in -- it was so fun to get to know our neighbors, and we thank all of our regular customers and bartenders who came out to support us.

Hopefully we will someday open a shop in San Francisco. But until then, this Wednesday 12/24, Christmas Eve, will be our last day (11am-3pm). Please come visit us! And stay tuned on our awesome project we are planning for our Oakland shop.

THANK YOU SAN FRANCISCO! We'll be back!
