Popular stateside sumo viewing and Japanese food culture event Sumo Stew will return to Brooklyn on November 12 to coincide with the upcoming Kyushu basho. The event will take place at The Brooklyn Brewery and you can click here for tickets.
Sumo Stew founders Michael Harlan Turkell and Harry Rosenblum will reprise their popular gathering surrounded by a host of exciting vendors, and a portion of the $60 ticket fee will support The Japan Society.

November’s event will feature a “seasonal chicken chankonabe” from Momo. Punters will also receive a bento box featuring a smattering of delectables from local vendors. Area craftsmen will also be on hand and this time, there will additionally be a rakugo performance from Ken Saito.
