From our organizers:
#SUMOSTEW is back and bigger than ever with this summer spectacular! Enjoy food, dessert, drinks, and vendors.
Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com) teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen and the two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.
The $60 ticket grants each participant a bento box, bowl of chankonabe, and 2 drink tickets to be used for sake, shochu, or a whisky cocktail – and round after round of sumo. Beer and additional drink tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
