Pretty soon the Valley will be filled with energy, our freeways will be jammed at rush hour and shoppers will be bustling through retail stores stocking up for the new school year. Whether you are headed back to class, back to work or just back from vacation, come celebrate the start of a new season at Ra Sushi in Old Town Scottsdale this Thursday for their Back-To-School Party to benefit the ASU Obama Scholarship Fund.
Ra Sushi’s back-to-school soiree, starting at 1 p.m. and running until 1 a.m., will be in total classroom theme with waiters dressed as professors and the waitresses dressed as schoolgirls. The night will of course include drink and sushi specials, including $5 Bookworm Rolls, $6 Nerd Shots and $7 Teacher’s Pets. Guests are invited to enter the raffle to win T-shirts, RA gift certificates and gifts from local restaurants. All proceeds benefit the ASU Obama Scholarship Fund.
“There is never a dull moment in The Ra. The music is pumping the mood is upbeat and the atmosphere is as stimulating as a big bite of wasabi.” Ra Sushi
