Best Sushi Joint to Get as Drunk as a Japanese Salaryman 

Coach Sushi

Only nail parlors seem to outnumber sushi joints in the Bay Area, so the competition to lure ebi and hamachi eaters through the doors has got to be fierce. Across the street from Lake Merritt in Oakland's Adams Point neighborhood, Coach Sushi customers frequently line up down the block. What's the secret? The answer lies in two words that will inspire a faint wave of nausea in anybody who's already succumbed: bottomless sake. The sushi and teriyaki at this place are good enough, but after pouring a couple of cedar boxes down your gullet, you won't be in any position to judge. Or care. The staff knows the score, and Coach himself enjoys playing a starring role in his diners' downfalls with insistent and enthusiastic refills. This is not the place to savor the incredible sophistication and refinement of Japanese cuisine. Go here to get deliciously hammered, scarf down a bunch of dragon rolls and banana tempura while braying at your friends, and forget the entire experience by the next morning. Kampai!
