Demolish Your New Year’s Resolution at Blue Fin Sushi’s Happy Hour
According to my extremely reliable Google search methods, weight loss is the most common New Year’s resolution, among, incredibly, wanting to drink less alcohol (because who would ever want that?? Boring). I don’t want to necessarily lose weight, but it would be nice to eat way healthier and, say, run a half-marathon or something. Unfortunately, the discovery of Blue Fin Sushi‘s happy hour will make this very hard to do.
I first became aware of Blue Fin a couple years ago when I lived only a block away in the Richmond. I never ate there, however, because a door hanger menu, although elaborate and colorful, included a menu item called “Japanese pizza,” which struck me as a sin against nature. Had I known about their happy hour, I could have forgiven this. From 4pm – 7pm daily, appetizers are only $3 – $4 a plate and are a food enthusiast’s dream: calamari, buffalo wings, spring rolls, crab rangoon, fried peppers. Actually, there are quite a few healthier options as well, like grilled eggplant, chicken yakatori, and smoked salmon. But still, Catch-22 — the food is so cheap that you’ll end up eating, like, four plates of chicken yakatori. Which is called bingeing.
Drink prices are also slashed during happy hour: $3 for pints and $4 for well drinks. My first tip of 2011 is save most of the room in your stomach for the food, because it’s really good. If you’re going to default on your resolutions, might as well do it right.Blue Fin Sushi 1814 Clement St. (btwn 19th & 20th Ave.) [Central Richmond]
