Back to School Party and Cocktail Recipes from RA

Even if your school years are behind you, you still have the opportunity to celebrate this fun, new time of the year. RA Sushi’s original Old Town Scottsdale location invites you to a Back-to-School party on Thursday, Aug. 27, 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Dine on sushi and sip on drinks while DJ Convince will spin a hot mix of hip hop, rock and Top 40 from 8 p.m. to midnight. Food and drink specials include the cleverly named Bookworm Roll, $5; Nerd Shots, $6; Horny School Girl, $7; Brainteaser, $7; and Teacher’s Pet, $7. You can even donate to a good cause (and have the chance to win cool prizes): Five dollar raffle tickets will benefit the ASU Obama Scholarship Fund. Raffle winners will receive RA gift certificates, T-shirts, and lunch boxes full of goodies and gifts from local restaurants, bars and retail shops. 3815 N. Scottsdale Rd. Scottsdale, 480.990.9256, www.rasushi.com.

    Man I wish this was at the Kierland location, Old Town is too far for me. Might just have to make one at home!

  • Belinda says:

    Sorry guys – not buying the glitz and glamor and hype of mixing alcohol and school. Hey! Use a yellow school bus to drive the drunks home! Slick…

  • Alex says:

    Yeah Belinda, parting and school have nothing to do with each other. That’s why there is absolutely no relationship between school being back in session and bars and restaurants having increased revenues. It’s not like students like to have a cocktail after the end of a hard week or celebrate their college years. No, all students should jump on your bandwagon and agree to abstain from alcohol, sex and any form of release that may inhibit their conformation into boring adults just like you. In the mean time, I’ll be at RA enjoying myself. Good luck with the agenda.
