Sakqueso! 

At Sequoia Diner.

Wine-and-cheese pairings are a reliable favorite for good reason, whether you’re hosting a dinner party or putting together an ambitious picnic. But if you’re looking to expand your booze-accompaniment horizons, consider attending this pop-up sake and cheese pairing dinner at Sequoia Diner (3719 MacArthur Blvd.), hosted by Umami Mart, the Oakland-based repository for all (food- and beverage-related) things Japanese. The five-course tasting menu cooked by Keisuke Akabori (a chef at Delage and the brother of Umami Mart co-owner Kayoko Akabori) will feature such dishes as roasted baby potatoes with panko-fried Camembert and chiles relleños with melted Oaxacan cheese. The food will be paired with three sakes from Japan’s Hakkaisan Sake Brewery, whose “Sake Samurai” (yes, that’s a real thing) Timothy Sullivan will be on hand to talk guests through the tasting. Tickets are available via Eventbrite.com.
