Assorted Sushi News

Rumours are flying that Sandra Bullock may be in on a new Austin sushi concession. She's recently been spotted at several Austin sushi establishments with current beau Jesse James, and apparently asked a few questions. Of course, since Sandy and I are very tight, I can say unequivocally that she definitely is helping to open a new sushi bar in Austin. But, I can't say anything more because it's all too dramatic and she'd totally kill me if I said anything else.

In other news, Eat & Drink Magazine, a new slick color magazine, launched it's first issue. They have pretty color photos of food and the magazine is free. And a website. Nuff said.

wasabiZen Japanese Food Fast is having an all-you-can-eat sushi bash to raise money for the children and teachers of the South Austin Open Door Pre-School. The sushi event will be at Zen's South Congress location only (1303 S. Congress Avenue) on Sunday, October 10th at 1pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children and all proceeds go to Open Door.
