In addition, I will be judging the participants at the event and am being compensated for my involvement. I personally love sushi and any opinions represented below are my own.
This coming Thursday, September 29th, 2016 is the Sushi Battle Tampa Bay presented by Sapporo Beer at The Coliseum (535 4th Avenue North St. Petersburg, Florida) at 6:30PM. The event is organized by Big City Events. Restaurants will battle it out for who has the Best Sushi in Tampa Bay while attendees enjoy sushi samples and activities.
Tickets are $45 in advance for General Admission and $75 in advance for VIP in advance. This event will SELL OUT as tickets are limited so if you want to attend, I would recommend purchasing a ticket in advance. There is also a $20 sake tasting ticket available.

Attractions include Tampa Taiko drummers, sumo wrestling, sake tastings, group sake shots, karaoke, live DJ music, group sake bomb, and a screening of the Godzilla movie. The USF J-Club will also be tabling at the event.
