Swap beer and pretzels for sake and wasabi-flavored popcorn at a Japanese pub food festival. You may indulge in refreshing cucumber concoctions and yakisoba noodles, among other fare from local restaurants. The word izakaya comes from the Japanese characters meaning “to stay” and “sake shop”; it’s a translation you may want to consider as you sip shochu and soak up the ambiance of music from DJ Satoshi Tomiie and art under glowing red lanterns.
