Cancel tonight’s plans and follow these 5 steps for a perfect sushi night

I had the ultimate sushi night yesterday — I saw a movie about sushi AND ate some sushi. Did I mention the movie and the food were discounted?

Read on to learn how you can do the same. 

  1. Find someone who loves sushi as much as you do. I picked The Mister.
  2. Eat a filling snack. The importance of this will be clear later. I went with an apple and two homemade oatmeal raisin cookies. The Mister ate beer cheese and pretzels.
  3. Go to Village 8 movie theater at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Get two $4 tickets to see Jiro Dreams of Sushi*, a documentary about an 85-year-old Japanese man who runs perhaps the most revered sushi restaurant on the planet. 
  4. After about an hour and a half of watching men make delicious sushi, jump on the Watterson Expressway and head to Dragon King’s Daughter at 1126 Bardstown Road for the restaurant’s late-night happy hour.
  5. Gorge yourself on discounted delicious raw fish. We got three rolls for about $27.
*Note: Today is the last day that you can see Jiro Dreams of Sushi at Village 8. It’s a Louisville exclusive, so it’s not playing anywhere else in town. If you don’t make it to see this documentary, replace step 3 with a Village 8 movie of your choice.
