International Sushi Day

June 18th is International Sushi Day, and the first year it was celebrated was in 2009. International Sushi Day was created for one simple reason – to encourage all around the world to eat and love more sushi. Fun fact: Southeast Asians developed the original type of sushi, which consisted of fish wrapped in souring, fermenting rice. The dish then spread to southern China before reaching Japan.


Create Your Own Sushi
Pick one of the many ways to create sushi, go to your local fish market, grocery store to buy the ingredients, and handle business. Roll up that sushi with love! Pretty soon you’ll be a sushi-chef in no time.

Give the gift of Sushi
Bring a loved-one or friend to your favorite sushi joint, We’ll make the world a better place, one roll at a time.

Head over to your Local Sushi Restaurant
It’s that easy. Walk-in and enjoy your favorite rolls, or all you can eat portion at your desire.


The Taste
Looking to have your mind blown? The possibilities are endless as you create your own combination of seafood, vegetables, seasonings and sauces and have your sushi your own way. Mmmmm.

It's Very Healthy
It's difficult to get much healthier than raw fish and veg. The rice maybe isn’t the healthiest food in the world, but the carbs in it will give your body the energy it needs. If you’re looking to lose weight and stay in great shape then sushi is the way to go.

You'll never get bored as there are a plethora of things you can choose with sushi. Even if you don't love everything on the menu you will find something that tastes great. For extra flavor and spice, use soy and wasabi to dip your your food in.

National Go Fishing Day

Observed annually on June 18, National Go Fishing Day is a great day to take time from your daily routine to find a stream, a lake or pond, bait your hook, cast your line and catch a fish or two (or ten). Fishing is a recreational pastime of many, and if you’re lucky, you can bring home a fresh catch.


Go out and fish
If you own a boat, great! If not, ask one of your friends to go on a fishing adventure with you. Be sure to bring the bait!

Build a fishing-themed playlist
Bust out that Spotify app and make a go-fishing playlist that will ignite that inner fisherman inside of you.

If you can’t go fishing, go eat some fish
Yes, we said it. Although it isn’t the same thing as being out on the water and catching your lunch, might as well visualize it with every bite at your favorite seafood restaurant or equivalent. You can even defrost that fish from Costco and enjoy a grilled fish for dinner.


It’s a bonding experience
The same thing can happen with any other activity, but with fishing – once you’re in the motion of things, you start acting in the present and usually start to talk about the things that matter most with the people that matter the most.

It’s a form of meditation
Fishing gives you a chance to really disconnect from your work-life. By throwing a line in the lake, and waiting for a snag, one can get lost in the experience, and work feels a million miles away. If you need space to think, fishing is the key. It can be a powerful time for reflection to connect ideas, follow random trains of thought, and meditate.

It’s a challenge
We long to be challenged, but if we’re always challenged by the same thing – it can wear us down and burn us out. Fishing is great because it calls on a different set of skills and demands something entirely new from us. We get the satisfaction of rising to the occasion when our comfort zone is being pushed.
