Sake and Cheese Flight Night

YES! Sake and cheese are stellar together.

Moshi Moshi welcomes Jesse Pugach, Founder of Fifth Taste this Thursday, August 15th from 6pm to 9 pm. Fifth Taste is a local sake distributor with an amazing profile of sakes that promise to tease and tantalize the umami receptors on your tongue. Jesse is joined by his wife, Liza Kaplansky, a local cheese expert, (currently working for Sweet Grass Dairy) and together they have curated phenomenal pairings of local cheese and Japanese sake for the evening.

Two years ago Mitsuru-san and I went to True Sake‘s Sake Day festival in J-Town where Jesse and Liza had a table where they were offering samples of sake and cheese – we were blown away. Ever since that day Mits and I have talked about recreating that tasting at Moshi. Well, here it is and I hope it to be one in a line of sake and cheese pairings to come.

Please note: while reservations are not necessary they are highly recommended. Also note that the picture does not reflect the actual sake and cheese flight being offered it is only for marketing purposes.

Glenfiddich Flight Night No.2

Glenfiddich Alter

Thursday, June 27th from 6pm to 9pm Moshi is hosting Glenfiddich to fill in the whisky-spaces left open at the last Glenfiddich flight night.

Ashela from William Grant USA will be here pouring an “appreciation dram” to say thank you for all those participating in flights.

Moshi also has rare variant in house: Glenfiddich 2012 Millennium Edition. These casks were filled during millennium celebrations at the distillery and then were personally picked by the Malt Master for inclusion in this special edition. The juice picked spent 2 extra months in ex-bourbon barrels for an extra hit of floral vanilla.

And, of course, Mits will be here polling everyone on how the whiskies are treating everyone.

Thanks!

Artist David Normal at Moshi Moshi

A series of digital collages derived from pulp cover art from the 1920s – 1960s.

About David Normal and “Pulp and Circumstance”:

 

David Normal, hell or high water, is dedicated to his art.  Always striving for his personal best, he meets the world on his own terms with a deeply imaginative vision sustained by deep philosophical and conceptual underpinnings.  Beginning his career with punk flyers in the late ‘80s, his work has always been eclectic in style, as well as encompassing a diverse array of media – animation, theater, installation, performance art, video and more.  These accomplishments were recognized in a museum show of his “Crossroads of Curiosity” suite of murals at the British Library in London in 2015.

 

“Pulp and Circumstance, Digital Collages”, currently on display at Moshi Moshi, is a series of digital collages based on Pulp magazine covers from the 1920s – 1960s.  In Normal’s wide ranging studies of art; illustration from the golden age of the pulps has always been a perennial favorite genre.  The stylistic uniformity of the pulp illustrations lends itself to a “seamless” approach to collage making, favored by Normal, wherein the finished work appears not so much as a collage, but as an illustration rendered by one artist.  With this seamless approach Normal directs the viewers attention especially to the narrative and symbolism of the art.  With playful irreverence, “Pulp and Circumstance” explores scientific, religious, erotic and psychological themes that are simultaneously allegories for the drama of Normal’s personal life.
