Sushi. Is. Life. 

If these words make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, then we've got great news. 

June 18 is International Sushi Day, and there's plenty of mouth-watering menus in Madison to go out and celebrate with! From newer spots like Takara 88, featuring Madison's first conveyor-belt sushi, to longtime favorites like RED and Muramoto, Madison has no shortage of excellent Asian cuisine. 

We recommend trying out some of the specials on tap the week of June 13, including from RED (located just off the Capitol Square) and their sister restaurant Jacknife (East Washington Ave.), which both have a specials going down June 13-18. Here are the deets:
